“Act II: Date @ 8” is already drawing early radio airplay, led by hometown Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart reporter KKDA Dallas, which gave the song 37 first-time plays Jan. 9-15, according to Mediabase, which provides Luminate airplay data for Billboard charts. The track ranked among the station’s top 20 most played titles in that span.
