Thanks to a slew of back-to-back hits, 2020 has seen Dua Lipa rise to be Pop music’s ‘it’ girl.
After watching cuts from her sophomore album, ‘Future Nostalgia,’ find tenancy in the Hot 100’s top 20 (see: ‘Don’t Start Now’ and ‘Break My Heart’), the singer’s now welcomed a third to the growing list: ‘Levitating.’
The song’s original incarnation (and later a Madonna & Missy Elliott-buoyed remix) may have not made much noise on the chart (as we reported here), but now – three months after it was officially serviced to radio as a single – ‘Levitating’ has lifted into the Hot 100’s upper region.
As the refreshed chart reveals below, ‘Levitating’ ascended to #20 on the Hot 100 – a move powered by a handsome combination of streams, radio airplay, and digital downloads of multiple versions of the song including a popular remix with rapper DaBaby.
Marking her fourth career visit to the top 20, the update came Tuesday (November 24) just moments before the 2021 GRAMMY nominations were unveiled to show Lipa tied Taylor Swift to become the year’s most nominated female Pop act (click here to see all the nods).
While we celebrate Dua’s double dose of good news, look below to see who joins her on this week’s TGJ Chart Check.
