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.’
