The Weeknd Ends Roddy Ricch’s 11-Week Reign Atop the Hot 100

Published: Monday 30th Mar 2020 by Rashad

As we reported here, industry analysts predicted The Weeknd would end Roddy Ricch‘s 11-week hold on the Hot 100’s summit;  they were right.

Get the details inside:

Thanks to the blockbuster sales of his latest album, ‘After Hours,’ The Weeknd (born Abel Tesfaye) saw his already rising hit – ‘Blinding Lights’ – receive the ultimate boost from the commercial response to the LP (which included 1 billion streams on Spotify alone).

Courtesy of a handsome mix of streams (32.1 million), radio airplay (82.2 million impressions), and digital downloads (15,000) the song catapulted to #1 from its previous peak of #2 (attained last week).

Coming as the fifth chart-topper of his career, ‘Lights’ is the second #1 hit he’s obtained from the ‘After Hours’ album alone.  It follows the set’s lead single, ‘Heartless,’ which debuted at chart’s summit in December 2019.

    Multiple number ones is hard to get, or every one has that to their credit.
