Singer Charlie Wilson’s latest single proves prophetic as “One I Got” tops Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs airplay chart. The song leads the list dated Sept. 5, advancing from the runner-up position, and helps the R&B veteran rewrite the record for the most No. 1s by a male artist in the chart’s 27-year history. Wilson adds his eighth No. 1 on Adult R&B Songs, breaking a tie with R. Kelly and Maxwell for the most chart toppers among males. Among all acts, Wilson rises to third place on the all-time leaderboard. Here are the current standings:

11, Alicia Keys
9, Toni Braxton
8, Charlie Wilson
7, R. Kelly
7, Maxwell
6, Mary J. Blige
6, Whitney Houston
6, Kem
6, Brian McKnight
6, Luther Vandross

Meanwhile, “One I Got” arrives at the summit in its 10th week on the list, completing the fastest No. 1 among Wilson’s eight champs. His previous best came with 2010’s “You Are”, which needed 12 frames to find the top rank. Gains at the adult R&B sector help push “One” upward on the R&B/Hip Hop Airplay chart, which combines both adult and mainstream-oriented play (and ranks titles by audience impressions). The track steps 17-14 with a 3 percent bump to 9.3 million in audience. Wilson achieves his best showing on R&B/Hip Hop play since “My Love Is All I Have” reached No. 13 in 2013. “One” is now Wilson’s fifth-highest charting track on the tally, dating to the list’s 1992 inception. His best remains a No. 3 high in a featured role on Snoop Dog’s 2003 hit “Beautiful”, followed by the name-checking “Charlie Last Name: Wilson”, “You Are” and “Have.” Before his solo tenure, Wilson was lead singer of the group The Gap Band, which included his brothers, Ronnie and Robert. The group earned its greatest success 1979-1990, with top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart, including four No. 1s.
