Chart Check [Hot 100]: Kesha Earns First Top 40 Hit In Four Years

Published: Wednesday 19th Jul 2017 by Rashad

Considering the last few years of headlines related to her have been consumed with legal battles with producer Dr. Luke, it’s easy to forget how much of a chart force Kesha was at the height of her career.  With just 3 official releases over the course of four years, the singer nabbed 12 top 40 singles (7 by her lonesome).

Now, if the commercial performance of her new single, ‘Praying,’ is any indication, she’s set to continue that impressive trend.

As we reported here, the song shot to the top 5 shortly after the unveiling of its accompanying music video.  By the end of the week, ‘Praying’ laid claim to over 50,000 downloads.  That figure, in conjunction with some equally handsome streams, helped put Kesh in the top 40 of this week’s Hot 100 (her first entry as a leading act since 2013).

With next week promising to see the tune lifted even higher on the tally, tuck in below to see where it landed this week and what other artists join her in the chart’s upper rankings:

    Look at the threat that is ‘Wild Thoughts’, Riri may have another number one on her hands.

      True…wild thoughts is blowing on radio and streaming but Despacito looks good for another two weeks at least. A discount for Wild thoughts tho could do the trick when radio is at Despacito level which will possibly be in two weeks time

    Wild thoughts tho
