The Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles Sales
chart is the sales component chart of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles And Tracks
. It is not the R&B
subset of The Hot 100 Singles Sales
, but rather a separate panel of sales of commercial singles in the urban market. Due to the decline of standard commercial CD singles for the urban market, the chart is most often filled with the sales of 12" Maxi Singles
, a format popular in urban markets.
