Chart Check: Post Malone Breaks Ariana Grande Hot 100 Record

Published: Tuesday 10th Sep 2019 by Rashad

Post Malone‘s short, but storied career has come with no shortage of triumphs on the Billboard charts.

Just last year when his sophomore LP, ‘beerbongs & bentleys,’ topped the album charts with a whopping 461,000 units moved its first week, the accomplishment was accompanied with reports all 18 of its songs charted simultaneously (a feat that puts him in a very exclusive club of hitmakers).  As 9 of those 18 entries placed above #21 on the Hot 100, he set a record for most concurrent top 20 hits – a record later broken by Drake when his album, ‘Scorpion,’ entered 12 of its tracks in the same frame.

Now, with the release of his third studio effort – ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ (September 6) – the 24-year-old’s expected to dominate next week’s Billboard 200 with predicated sales of 450,000-500,000.  But, before the final count’s reported, Malone’s already being greeted with good news that the set’s single is continuing his careerlong Hot 100 domination.  As this week saw his latest single, ‘Circles,’ debut at #7 on the latter tally, the song became his fifth top 10 single in 2019 alone.  The feat mean’s he’s broken his tie with Ariana Grande for ‘most top ten singles (of any artist) this year.’

As we extend our congratulations to the rapper, look inside to see who joins him in the top 25 on this week’s ‘TGJ Chart Check.’

    Whenever I think people cancelled Iggy and Macklemore yet still support this fool I get speechless.

    • Oh na na September 13, 2019

      Cuz he keeps coming with hits. Y’all can’t cancel nobody with a hit. When will you people understand this? Those 2 didn’t have anymore hits.

  7. Tyty September 11, 2019

    I don’t really get this guys success he makes the same crap not any different than his peers yet his always got some song in the top 10 why is he even considered hip hop?? We let these weird culture vultures and they come in doing same music as your average untalented mumble rapper yet his doing big numbers cause his white?? Smh!!

  8. LBoog September 11, 2019

    So here’s the thing…. no one I know listens to this guy, and I can’t name one song of his!!!! This screams PAYOLA!!!!!!! There’s no way this man is doing this without money being handed out!!! I don’t care what anyone says. He looks disgusting!!!

    • Oh na na September 13, 2019

      Not payola but the same way Beyoncé bad music will chart high only due to name and previous hits. His catalog had some smash hits. Blacks actin like they wasn’t singing white iverson & congratulations lol

  9. King Khia September 11, 2019

    This generation has the worst music of all time.

  10. Clarkson September 11, 2019

    White Iverson is his best song till date.

    I love posty. Hes a sweet heart. Watched one of his interviews and I was pleasantly surprised how well he spoke and his level of intelligence.

    The album is okay. The collaboration he did with halsey is good,
    The collaboration he did with ozzy Osbourne is great also. The title track Hollywood’s bleeding is fantastic.

    Normani no where to be found in the top 40, after she was given a huge platform ( vma stage) to promote her song. Sad.

    • ROCK September 11, 2019

      She is black.

    • Will_xo September 11, 2019

      Everything you said was a hit till you mentioned Normani , to be fair you called it, but what your deal with her huh give it a rest son!

    • Only Facts September 11, 2019

      Didn’t “Crying In The Club” by Camilla disappear from the billboard charts after like 3 weeks? Oh wait, I forgot, you don’t like to consider that a “single” since Havanna was #1, right? LOL! Sending you well wishes for healing and peace.

    • I Told You September 11, 2019

      your obsessed with mani sis. its sad af tbh.

  11. Anonymous September 11, 2019

    Posty is one of the greatest artists of all time and every one hating on him because he’s white or calling him culture vulture or saying his music is wack is just a blatant hater and a sad person tbh… he deserves everything he’s getting and more he seems like a really nice guy, he doesn’t look dirty or homeless like ignorant ppl would say and I’m not white I’m black because they might say I’m supporting him because I’m white.

    • Winner’s Circle September 11, 2019

      90% of TGJ comments are irrelevant and misguided. Venting their frustrations on successful artists and supporting the truly untalented ones that FLOP every week on Billboard. LOL

      • Oh na na September 13, 2019

        Lol truth

  12. Caleb September 11, 2019

    Billboard has made it so easy to break records now. Another one is broken every week.
