It’s a case of a collective touchdown on this week’s iteration of the Billboard Hot 100.
For, Ariana Grande has seen her team-up with Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat on the ’34+35′ remix lift the song to a new peak on the coveted count.
Full story below…
The original incarnation of the track was bolstered by the release of the remix, helping the song soar #11-#2 on this week’s tally.
Prior to now, the cut – which is lifted from Grande’s ‘Positions’ album – had peaked at #8.
The trio pulled off the feat thanks to streams of 24.2 million, digital downloads to the tune of 8,000, and radio airplay of 45.5 million.
Note that this week’s charting combines performance all versions of the song. The remix nabs the credit because this week it delivered the most numerically.
In light of its recent solo peak, ’34+35′ remains Grande’s 18th and most recent top 10 on the tally. While it becomes Megan’s third following chart-toppers ‘Savage’ featuring Beyonce and Cardi B collaboration ‘WAP.’ For Doja, it’s her second after #1 hit ‘Say So.’
Notably, ’34+35′ becomes the first song by at least three female soloists to come as close to the #1 peak of 2001’s ‘Lady Marmalade’ by Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Pink, and Mya. Indeed, no other song in the near 20 years since that track was released has reached as close to pole position as Ari, Meg, and Doja’s latest effort. Additionally, it makes history as the first song from a studio album by at least three female soloists to chart as high this century.
The touchdown adds to Grande’s success narrative with the ‘Positions’ project, which has produced a #1 on both single and album charts.
