Doja Cat‘s breakout hit, ‘Say So,’ slides into new chart terrain thanks to a handsome mix of digital downloads, radio airplay, and streaming.
“Doja Cat pounces to her first top five Hot 100 hit, as “Say So” bounds 8-5. It likewise lifts 8-5 on Radio Songs (78.6 million, up 14%) and rises 10-8 on Streaming Songs (15.2 million, up 4%) and 25-21 Digital Song Sales (6,000, up 1%).”
Now, weeks after becoming her first solo Platinum record (as we reported here) and first top 40 hit (as we reported here), the Dr. Luke-produced cut is cutting into the Hot 100’s top 5. Again, a first for her short but storied career.
As we celebrate the latest achievement alongside her growing legion of fans, look below to see who joins her in the top 25 on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100 edition:
Doja’s success is also a win for her label, RCA Records.
The imprint, despite being the musical home of megastars Shakira, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and more, has failed to see any of its solo female acts head a Hot 100 top 5 hit in years.
“With “Say So” released on RCA Records, Doja Cat is the first woman on the label to earn a first career top five Hot 100 hit in a lead role since Sia, whose “Cheap Thrills” (featuring Sean Paul) led for four weeks in August 2016. Prior to Sia, Kesha reigned for nine weeks with her debut hit “TiK ToK” in January-February 2010.”
