“I’m Baby” is Ambré’s first Adult R&B Airplay chart entry. She’s the first act to notch a No. 1 with a first title on the tally since Thundercat, as part of Silk Sonic’s “After Last Night” last November. She’s the first woman to achieve the feat since Tems as a featured artist on Wizkid‘s “Essence” in 2021 and the first as a lead artist since Snoh Aalegra with “I Want You Around” in 2020.
“I’m Baby” also marks James’ first No. 1 on any Billboard chart.
The song concurrently climbs 17-16 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay with 7.2 million audience impressions, up 2%, April 21-27, according to Luminate.
“I’m Baby” is the lead single from 3000°, Ambré’s second studio album. Released in June 2022 via Roc Nation, it has earned 12,000 equivalent album units since release.
