Chart Check: Zayn Malik Makes Hot 100 History With Debut Single ‘Pillowtalk’

Rihanna Rises Closer To Top 5 With 'Work'

zayn-malik-bb1-2016-billboard-04-650-thatgrapejuice

Zayn Malik is definitely music’s newest heartthrob to give Justin Bieber a run for his money.

As reported here, the former ‘One Direction’ divo was set to zoom to #1 on the Hot 100 with his official debut single ‘Pillow Talk.’  With the tallying week complete reports indicate he not only bested initial predictions of 250,000 units shifted, the tune also bests the chart stats of his former group (who, to date, have failed to nab a #1 on the singles chart).  As if the impressive first week sales and ousting Bieber from the top spot weren’t enough, Malik also made history with his first trip to the chart’s summit.

Via Billboard:

*Zayn is the first U.K. artist to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with a first charted single.

*Zayn is the first artist whose first name starts with a Z ever to top the Hot 100.

*Zayn is the first one-time member of a Hot 100-charting boy band to score a No. 1 with a debut single.  

*Note:  Technically, the first was George Harrison of The Beatles in 1970, but that was pre-Soundscan.

But, before he gets too comfortable, it seems the crooner’s run at #1 may be short lived if the performances of Drake‘s ‘Summer Sixteen’ and Rihanna‘s ‘Work’ are any indication.  With strong showings not too far from Malik’s [on the streaming and airplay front] in the last chart week, next week’s Hot 100 may see a serious shake-up.

Until then…
