Its first two incarnations may have signaled a flop, but Dua Lipa‘s song ‘Levitating’ has reaffirmed the age old adage – ‘the third time’s the charm.’
After tapping DaBaby to assist its latest adaptation, radio listeners immediately ate that version up – a feat supported by Lipa’s onslaught of live promotion of the tune that saw her perform it at ‘SNL,’ the American Music Awards, and more. Together, the increased action helped hoist it to top 20 status on the Hot 100 just weeks after its premiere (marking her fourth career visit to the chart region).
Despite being pushed out of said region due to the influx of holiday hits, those tunes’ disappearing act from the tally has helped ‘Levitating’ live up to its namesake on the refreshed chart.
See what we mean inside:
