David Archuleta – Crush – Debuts at #2 on The Billboard Hot 100

David Archuleta’s new single, “Crush” will debut this week at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. That’s according to reliable sources who regularly leak Soundscan numbers online.

“Crush” has set some records:

  1. The highest debut, at #2, on the Hot 100 this year.
  2. The highest debut of all Idol album singles on the Hot 100
  3. The highest position of all Idol album singles (tied with Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone”) on the Hot 100.
  4. The highest chart position for an Idol, period, since Taylor Hicks coronation single, “Do I Make You Proud” debuted at #1 in 2006.

I’ll bet I’m missing something! At any rate, thanks to the peeps who confirmed these stats for me. And a big congratulations to David Archuleta on his huge chart debut. It’s an incredible accomplishment.
