Today’s thread is brought to you by the number 96.
“Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X retains the top of the Hot 100 chart for a fifth week. I’m a little surprised Taylor Swift’s “Me!” didn’t take it because the song was everywhere. “Old Town Road” has streaming legs. “Me!” sold 193K copies and had the biggest jump in Hot 100 history (100->2). Kelly Clarkson still has the biggest jump to number 1 (97->1). Normani’s collaboration with Sam Smith (“Dancing with a Stranger”) is at 8th (lw 7th).
Over on the BB200, P!nk earns her third number one album. “Hurts 2B Human” mood 116K equivalent albums (95K traditional).
