Today’s thread is brought to you by the numbers 8 and 17.
“Old Town Road” is growing old at the top of the Hot 100 as it spends its 9th week there. This breakout hit by Lil Nas X also tops the Streaming chart (115.3M streams) for a ninth week and the digital chart (81K) for a 6th week.
Normani’s “Dancing with a Stranger” (with Sam Smith) holds at number 8 on the chart while Morgan Wallen’s “Whiskey Glass” powers up the chart from 26th to 17th. This is the first time Morgan has been in the top 20 on this chart.
Billie Eilish is also having a breakout this year. While she has had a large and loyal fan base for a while, she is now breaking into the mainstream. Her “Bad Guy” is number 2 on the Hot 100 and her album “When We all Fall Asleep, Where do we Go?” returns to the top of the BB200.
