Chart Check [Hot 100]: Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’ Unseated From #1

Published: Friday 7th Dec 2018 by Rashad

It looks like the Billboard Hot 100 told Ariana Grande, “thank you, next,” as refreshed reports shows Travis Scott‘s ‘Sicko Mode’ (featuring Drake) replacing the songstress atop the chart.

After leading the tally for three weeks, Grande’s ode to her exes – though by slim margin  – lost grip of the #1 spot on this week’s singles chart. Billboard reports:

“Sicko” narrowly defeats Grande’s “Thank U, Next” atop the hot 100, as the former gains by 5 percent in overall activity and the latter descends by 5 percent. Still, “Next” tops Streaming Songs for a fourth week (42.5 million, down 3 percent). It falls 4-5 on Digital Song Sales (18,000, down 23 percent) and zooms 36-23 on Radio Songs (39.5 million, up 25 percent), claiming the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer title.

Like Grande’s ‘Next,’ ‘Sicko Mode’ comes as Scott’s first chart-topper.  Yet, industry analysts have already forecasted he shouldn’t get too comfortable as – thanks to the song’s well-received music video (as seen here) – ‘Next’ is set to be #1 again next week.

Until we know for sure, look to see who join the two in the top 25 on this week’s TGJ Chart Check:

    Lol ok now, don’t get me wrong, travis’ astroworld is 🔥however, this entire album campaign seems fishy. TYN was the top gainer in airplay, topped the streaming songs and only down by 23% in digital sales, yet Sicko Mode somehow managed to snag the top spot?? Maybe I just don’t understand how charting positions work 🤷🏾‍♂️.

    He’s a cheating fraud, so none of his chart positions count imo lol.

    Must be fixed, good form should be number 1.
