Hot 100: Harry Styles’ ‘Watermelon Sugar’ & DaBaby’s ‘Rockstar’ in Tight Battle for #1

Published: Sunday 9th Aug 2020 by Rashad

Billboard is set to have some sweet news for ‘Watermelon Sugar’ singer Harry Styles.

Just a month after fans learned it had become his third solo top 10 placement on the Hot 100 (as we reported here), the Tyler Johnson-produced hit is now locked in a two-way race with DaBaby‘s enduring smash ‘Rockstar’ to be crowned the week’s chart champion.

Details inside:

Officially delivered May 15, ‘Sugar’ took 15 weeks to reach its current peak of #7 on the Hot 100 (as of time reported).  However, thanks to a sales and radio airplay surge, industry analysts predict the song will dethrone the current chart champ – Taylor Swift‘s ‘Cardigan’ (which will reportedly make a historic drop from the tally’s perch as we reported here).

That win would come as Styles’ first solo #1 on the hitlist, unless – of course – DaBaby says otherwise.

The rapper’s Roddy Ricch-assisted hit, ‘Rockstar,’ had already enjoyed seven non-consecutive weeks atop the Hot 100 before Swift’s ‘Cardigan’ interrupted the reign.  Now, with renewed interest in its parent album, ‘Blame It on Baby,’ thanks to its deluxe re-release (click here to stream), it’s believed the tune stands a good chance of rocketing back to #1.

 

Keep it locked to That Grape Juice for the final word once the announcement is made Monday (August 10).

    I love both songs

  3. #WAP August 9, 2020

    Aww I love harry and hope he gets his first #1! It’s great when artists who are talented get solo #1’s. Meanwhile there’s a chipmunk who relies on features and laying on her back.

      Are you dumb? This is for LAST weeks sales. WAP was released 2 days ago and the full charting week isn’t over until Thursday night. You must be a fan of that old fat lady named Nicki that can’t even stand up because she’s been steadily gaining weight since 2018. Try again and stream WAP by GRAMMY AWARD WINNER queen of rap Cardi B
