SZA Earns Her First No. 1 on R&B Songs Chart

Via Complex,

SZA had an incredible year in 2017 and the accolades are continuing to roll in.

Her debut studio album CTRL is a popular top 3 pick on many end of the year lists alongside her Top Dawg Entertainment label-mate Kendrick Lamar. The critically-acclaimed album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and led to five Grammy nominations for the 28-year-old singer.

Now, SZA has another achievement to add to her growing list of 2017 milestones: her first No. 1 single on the Billboard's Hot R&B Songs chart. Rising from last week's No. 3 position, "The Weekend" unseated Khalid's "Young Dumb & Broke" for the top spot.

This marks the first No. 1 on the Hot R&B Songs chart by a female singer since Rihanna's "Needed Me" owned the top position in October 2016, according to Billboard.
