In 2004 the US chart was basically entirely airplay (apart from the odd American Idol single), as the labels had successfully killed off CD singles (starting in the mid-'90s with all the big hits like 'Don't Speak', 'Killing Me Softly' and many, many more that infamously never charted, due to not being released as CD singles in order to make people buy the albums instead, and airplay-only songs not being allowed to chart until 1998), and digital sales weren't there yet. US radio is strongly divided into formats (top 40/pop, urban, rhythmic, Hot AC [adult contemporary], AC, urban AC, country, alternative, etc), which basically leaves a ceiling to how much airplay songs can get, based on how many formats they can fit on. At the time, hip hop and R&B were popular (and pop-friendly) enough that pop stations were forced to accept them (they resisted hip hop hard in the '90s), meaning they got played on the most stations - particularly crossover R&B (eg Usher, Mariah), which AC stations would somewhat play too. Dance-pop like 'Toxic' (which was off-trend for 2004 anyway) was pretty limited to pop stations only, so it went #1 among pop stations, but only #10 on radio altogether as that was as far as pop stations alone could take you.

You can draw a strong parallel to streaming now also being hip hop-dominated (I've personally believed in retrospect that the pop-dominated ~2008-2013 period was a misleading blip due to digital sales favouring wealthier, and probably older compared to streaming, demographics), but a big difference is that there's not as strict a ceiling - as with radio, there's a set number of stations that play their top songs a set number of times, but with streaming, there are tens (or hundreds) of millions of listeners who vary in engagement, plus people aren't stuck in genre boxes the same way. An equally big difference between then and now is also that hip hop now charts at the expense of radio, as pop radio has resisted the resurgence of hip hop in the last 5 years (and made itself look increasingly irrelevant in the process), probably because young people barely listen to the radio anymore, so it's shifted to being like what Hot AC used to be.

('Gimme More', 'Womanizer' and 'Toxic' for me)
