Dua Lipa Hits Career Hot 100 Peak As ‘Don’t Start Now’ Edges Closer to #1

Published: Tuesday 17th Mar 2020 by Rashad

Dua Lipa‘s ‘Don’t Start Now’ may pack just the punch needed to knock ‘The Box’ out of its jaw-dropping 10-week topping of the Hot 100.

More inside:

Although Roddy Ricch‘s ‘The Box’ has seen its name wrapped around the Hot 100’s pole position for over 2 months straight, its reign may be coming to an end thanks to Pop princess Dua Lipa.

‘Don’t Start Now,’ the lead single from her April 3-due sophomore album, ‘Future Nostalgia,’ has consistently been rising on charts since its debut.  As we reported here, the last few upward moves have come as personal bests for the 24-year-old.

Now, thanks to a handsome mix of streams, sales, and blockbuster radio airplay, the ‘New Rules’ singer is one rung shy of ruling the charts.
“Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” lifts from No. 3 to a new No. 2 Hot 100 high, as it hits No. 1 on Radio Songs (97.8 million, up 3%), becoming the pop singer-songwriter’s first leader on the latter list.
(Meanwhile, with the song released on Warner Records, it’s the first Radio Songs No. 1 by a female artist on the label unaccompanied by another artist since Madonna’s “Take a Bow,” which ruled for nine weeks beginning in February 1995.”

      • cory March 18, 2020

        Wait… did anyone notice this song isn’t even in the Top 100 of Apple Music? How is it #2 on the Hot 100?

    • Only Facts March 17, 2020

      Just refer to Canola as the C********** from now on. Vaccinate the b*tch and get her away

      • Doja Cat Say So March 17, 2020

        Wow this racist Normani Stan’s need to get checked. Hopefully this ugly höes get caught and arrested for racist comments. Also, Be careful of labeling someone as C***** virus cuz you guys might get it. Be very careful.

        Jealous much of Camila? thriving and successful pop career? Flopmanis a flop. Doja Cat is better.

        All they say are Blah blah blah. Cry about it.

      • Onika The R***** Whisperer March 18, 2020

        Camila is a disgusting piece of shxt whöre. I hope she dies from C*****!

      • Only Facts March 18, 2020

        Doja cat is labeling herself as a rapper. Normani is a singer. That’s like saying Lil Kim is better than Hilary Duff ?? two different artists, two different genres. You IDIOT! The commenters on here are less than smart. I need intellectual banter. You b*tches aren’t mentally stimulating me during this quarantine

  2. Only Facts March 17, 2020

      Wow Camila is really this powerful that she rules your mind 24/7. You need to get a job and stop replying on unemployment and fold stamps. You are obsessed with her. This article is about Dua. Don’t worry about Camila. She has $20 million met worth, Platinum albums , 2 #1 s and several accolades and awards.

      Anyway, congrats Dua. I like the single. Dua is better than Normani for sure.

  12. Rashad March 18, 2020

    Love Dua. She’s doing things and getting the love that Kylie Minogue should have received from an American audience

    Dais’s album is produced by Stuart Price who did Madonna’s Confessions on a Dancefloor and Kylie’s Aphrodite so it’s going to be bop after bop
