Hot 100: Harry Styles Defeats DaBaby in Race to #1

Published: Monday 10th Aug 2020 by Rashad

After Harry Styles and DaBaby saw their respective hits, ‘Watermelon Sugar’ and ‘Rockstar,’ locked in an intense battle for the Hot 100 throne (as we reported here), Billboard has declared it will be Styles taking home the honor.

Details inside:

After watching the tune rise to #1 on Billboard’s Pop Radio charts last week thanks to a whopping 92 million+ radio impressions, Styles has now learned ‘Sugar’ – the fourth single from his Platinum-certified, chart-topping sophomore solo album ‘Fine Line’ – has puckered up to kiss the top of the Hot 100.

Here’s the breakdown by the numbers:

  • Streaming: 14.2 million streams
  • Digital Downloads: 63,000 downloads sold
  • Radio Airplay: 71.7 million impressions

The win comes as a first for Styles whose previous career peak on the Hot 100 came when his debut solo single – ‘Sign of the Times’ – signed in at #4 on the tally.

Billboard reports:

“The song was on sale in Styles’ webstore via three physical/digital combination offerings during the tracking week ending Aug. 6. Consumers could buy cassette and vinyl singles (priced at $14.98-$15.98), with each purchase including a digital download; the download (the sale of which contributed to the latest tracking week) would be sent upon purchase, with physical versions due to arrive at a later date.

The song (its original version and an instrumental) was also sale-priced to 69 cents at all digital retailers during the tracking week.”

Elsewhere on the chart, DaBaby landed at #2 thanks to reinvigorated interest afforded by the re-release of its parent album, ‘Blame It on Baby.’  The song previously owned the Hot 100’s top spot for seven non-consecutive weeks before being booted by Taylor Swift‘s ‘Cardigan’ last week (as we reported here).

Here’s DaBaby’s breakdown by the numbers this week:

  • Streaming: 30.2 million streams
  • Digital Downloads: 9,000 downloads sold
  • Radio Airplay: 70.6 million impressions

    Congrats to both of them. If Cardi and Meg don’t watch it DaBaby will return to the top in 2 weeks I’m sure. But I’m doing my part on global Spotify for #WAP to be a hit 😜

    does anyone top the charts organically anymore?

    harry wouldn’t be number 1 without pulling the exact same stunt 6ix9ine did (even tho 6ix9ine got way more flack for it).

    DaBaby should be #1!!!

    Grammy award winner Cardi B set to become the first female rapper in history try to have two #1 hits in two different decades – THAT is queen of rap stats. “

    Stupid ho shoulda befriended me then she coulda prolly came back” 🤣 Funny how Nickis lyrics are coming back to haunt her old a_ss! Should’ve befriended Cardi then maybe your career wouldn’t be the joke it is now! GRAMMY AWARD WINNER CARDI B IS THE QUEEN OF RAP
