B has just earned her first No. 1 on Billboard's Adult R&B radio tally with her hit single, "Love on Top." The song earns the Greatest Gainer/Airplay award, lifting 4-2 (30 million audience impressions, up 22%, according to Nielsen BDS). "Love" rises 2-1 in its 19th week.
A veteran of charting on Adult R&B for close to 10 years as a soloist, Mrs. Carter was previously closest to the top in 2008, when "Until The End of Time," with Justin Timberlake, reached No. 2. She also placed six songs on the chart in 1998-2005 as a member of Destiny's Child, rising as high as No. 10 with 2005's "Girl."
