Hot 100: SZA’s ‘Hit Different’ Dips Out of Top 75 in Week 2

Published: Wednesday 23rd Sep 2020 by Rashad

Three weeks ago, SZA sprung a surprise on fans with the unannounced release of new song ‘Hit Different’ – the kick off from her long-awaited sophomore album.

Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, the slow-burning tune boasts production from The Neptunes and saw its arrival accompanied with its official music video (directed by GRAMMY-nominated songstress herself).

Greeted with fanfare, ‘Hit’ – as we reported here – seemed to be an out-of-the-box hit as it scored SZA her highest Hot 100 premiere (as a lead act) ever.  Yet, its time in the tally’s top 40 was short-lived as peruse of the refreshed chart shows the cut has made a nearly 50-spot drop from its #29 debut.

See where it landed on this week’s hit list:

In its second week on the Hot 100, ‘Hit Different’ hit #77 from its previous top 40 perch.

The drop is underscored by the song’s absence from the iTunes real-time sales and Spotify real-time streams charts’ respective top 100 as well as a modest #39 premiere on R&B radio charts.

Here’s hoping the promotion lined up for the weeks to come will help lift the deserving tune back to its former glory.

    Wow that’s weird. It was off to a really good start people are making dances to it and everything. On the radio front though I guess it could be that you really don’t understand what she’s saying. I don’t understand one word. But I like her so I tend to overlook that.🤷🏽‍♀️

    These TRASH rappers stay perched at the top of the charts while our R&B artists suffer. Where’s the damn support?

    The song simply has too many things happen at once its also kinda boring… I’m not even going to get into the fact that I have to keep chiming in to remember that she is speaking English. It is so hard to understand.

  5. Facts r Facts September 23, 2020

    It’s going to be a sleeper hit!

    That song is incredible. And if you pay attention you can understand what she says, I learned the lyrics in 2 days. I LOOOOOOVVVVEEEE this song.

    She’s lucky the song even charted, it’s so basic. They tried to use a social media trend ‘hit different’ but not in any context that is related to the way it would used so it makes no sense they’re just saying hit different over and over. It literally could have been called ANYTHING else smh

    The song is not good

    You guys give sza too much credit, let’s be honest what’s so special about her? Nothing

    She tries too hard to be deep
    Everything doesnt have to be deep
    Just song normal songs pls

  11. Interac September 23, 2020

    It’s just not a good song. I’ve felt that way since it first dropped and my opinion never changed no matter how many times I tried to get into it.
