Looks like Lil Dicky was just the tricky to help R&B bad boy Chris Brown ascend back to top 10 glory on the Hot 100. The crooner – who not only released mixtapes and a 45 track studio album (‘Heartbreak on a Full Moon’) last year but was also featured on countless other rappers and singers’ offerings – has consistently missed the chart’s upper rankings despite firing a number of shots in its direction.
Now, after several tries, it appears ‘Freaky Friday’ is the charm.
As we reported here, the cut zoomed to the top of the iTunes tally just a day after its release. Seven days later, after its streaming, radio airplay, and digital downloads sums have been counted, ‘Friday’ is a tenant in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. Coming as Brown’s first occupancy of a space in the top 10 since 2013’s ‘Loyal,’ look below to see exactly where he landed:
“Friday” enters Digital Song Sales at No. 3 (38,000) and Streaming Songs at No. 4 (26.5 million). Brown earns his 14th top 10 (and first since “Loyal” hit No. 9 in May 2014). He posts his 90th total Hot 100 entry, the seventh-best sum among all acts in the chart’s history. [source]
