Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter” is Now Rhythmic’s Most Played Song

Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter,” which is the reigning champion on Mediabase’s urban airplay chart, is now the most played song at the rhythmic radio format.

The track, which features Drake and Lil Wayne, rises to #1 on Tuesday’s edition of the rolling Mediabase airplay chart. It commanded a format-best 5,991 spins during the week between February 24 and March 2.

Insofar as it is gaining rhythmic airplay at a rate unrivaled by any other song, it should face no difficulty retaining its #1 spot through the coming weekend. If it does so, it will be named the #1 song on Sunday’s official edition of the rhythmic radio airplay chart.

Now the leader at both urban and rhythmic radio, “Truffle Butter” is currently positioned at #27 on the rolling pop airplay chart. Already supported by several high-profile stations, it formally goes for pop adds this week.
