A slight loss in weekly airplay does not prevent Rihanna’s “Needed Me” from retaining its throne at urban radio.

The song, which received ~4,514 spins during the July 3-9 tracking week (-59), earns a second week at #1 on Mediabase’s urban airplay chart.

Up two places, Drake’s “One Dance (featuring WizKid & Kyla)” moves into the runner-up spot. It garnered ~4,068 spins during the official tracking week (-11).

Kent Jones’ “Don’t Mind” dips to #3 with ~3,906 spins (-431), while Beyonce’s “Sorry” slips to #4 thanks to its weekly spin count of ~3,867 (-284).

Played ~3,313 times during the official tracking period (+88), Future’s “Wicked” enjoys a two-place leap to #5. It is the only song in the Top 5 — and one of only three songs in the Top 10 — with a weekly spin gain.
