Drake's new album For All The Dogs has been a commercial blast that's left very few Billboard charts untouched. Unsurprisingly, the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart was basically rewritten by the project. Drake and J. Cole's Hot 100 chart-topper "First Person Shooter" also unsurprisingly turns up at the top spot on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart. The album also propelled one of the biggest breakout stars in all of rap music this year, Sexyy Red, to new heights on the chart.

Previously, Red has scored 4 hits on the chart with three landing in the top 40. Her breakout hit "Pound Town 2" landed at number 21 with her only top 20 hit being SkeeYee which peaked at number 17. Now she officially has a top 10 hit on the chart with her Drake and SZA collaboration "Rich Baby Daddy." The song just barely cracked the top echelon of the chart by debuting at the number 10 spot. The same song just barely missed a top 10 debut on the Hot 100 itself. "Rich Baby Daddy" came in at number 11 on this weeks Hot 100. Listen to the song that broke Red into the top 10 below.

SZA also brought out Sexyy Red on tour recently. When the R&B darling stopped by the breakout rapper's home town of St. Louis she had Red out as a guest.
