UPDATED 5/15, 11 p.m. ET:“Kill Bill” has tied Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” for the longest run atop the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, with 20 weeks spent at No. 1.

The weeks are nonconsecutive, as “Kill Bill” relinquished the top spot twice since SOS was released on Dec. 9. Billboardreports that the track will look to hold off Metro Boomin’s “Creepin’” featuring The Weeknd and 21 Savage in pursuit of a new Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs record this week.

It has been quite a year for SZA.

Kill Bill” has become her first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The leap from fourth to the top spot was aided by the release of the Doja Cat-assisted remix just over a week ago.

SZA’s sophomore album SOS has also spent 10 nonconsecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200. The last woman artist to accomplish such a feat was Adele with 25, seven years ago. The TDE singer recently embarked on her first arena tour, which spanned 17 cities across North America and grossed nearly $35 million

After being named Billboard’s Woman of the Year in February, SZA reflected on the success of SOS following its seventh week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. “Right now, I just have extreme gratitude because I swear to God, I never thought I’d be No. 1 for even a week, let alone seven,” she said. 

Ice Spice’s remix of “Princess Diana” featuring Nicki Minaj debuted at No. 4 on the Hot 100, making it Ice’s second appearance on the chart, and the 22nd time for Nicki. Many were keeping an eye on the song’s performance on the Hot 100 after producer RiotUSA was accused of trying to pay people to buy the remix.

Ice Spice took to Twitter Monday to open up about checking the “dream collab” with Nicki off her bucket list.
