Chart Check [Hot 100]: Giveon Earns First Solo Top 40 Hit with ‘Heartbreak Anniversary’

Published: Wednesday 24th Mar 2021 by Rashad

March 22, 2021 will mark a new anniversary for ‘Heartbreak Anniversary’ singer Giveon:  the first time he saw his name printed in the Hot 100’s top 40 as a leading act.

Longtime fans of the GRAMMY nominee know he previously peaked at #14 as an assistant on Drake‘s 2020 hit, ‘Chicago Freestyle,’ but – thanks to the growing popularity of his solo breakthrough hit ‘Heartbreak Anniversary’ – the California-born crooner can now boast his first appearance in the chart region by his lonesome.

Details inside:

As if buzz from his inaugural GRAMMY nomination wasn’t enough (Best R&B Album at the 2021 ceremony), the 26-year-old capitalized off the hype by releasing a compilation album – ‘When It’s All Said & Done…Take Time’ – two days ahead of the award show (March 12).  The project combines his first two EPs, ‘When It’s All Said & Done’ and ‘Take Time’ (the latter originally housed the hit ‘Heartbreak Anniversary’).

Thanks to the heightened commercial attention courtesy of streams and digital downloads, ‘Anniversary’ soared from #52 to #30 on the Hot 100, where it’s found this week.  The lift not only serves as the highest rung Giveon’s nabbed to date, but also his inaugural trip into the top 40 as a leader.  That’s not all; ‘When It’s All Said & Done…Take Time’ – the highest-selling new project of the week – debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200, marking Giveon’s first time in that tally’s top 10 (click here to read more).

      Ugly ass how, get yo standing breath outta here. I can already smell yo breath from here. Nobody asked for your irrelevant opinion

    Goodness, this song will be huge.

    He is already predicted to have a top ten single next week with Peaches ft him and Daniel Ceaser. RNB is becoming more mainstream again. Acts like Ariana are gradually transitioning from pop to rnb, mind you, I ain’t talking about positions. I have a feeling RNB is going to rule the decade

    Heartbreak Anniversary might be his first solo top ten hit in the USA. It’s also rising on international charts and even on Spotify. Currently in the top 30 of Spotify USA. This song is surely the most radio friendly song on his Ep

    Give on is coming for Bruno and Abel’s throne. Slow and steady always wins the race, y’all!!!
