Thanks to a well-received remix featuring Miley Cyrus, relative newcomer The Kid Laroi has been bumped to his highest Hot 100 position yet.
As the refreshed tally revealed Monday (May 10), the Aussie singer-rapper-producer saw his hit ‘Without You’ – which previously peaked at #30 on the hit list – hop to #8 after an assist from Cyrus.
While Kid has much to celebrate as it’s his second career visit to the chart region, Miley may have even more as the move moves her into Billboard history books.
See how inside:
With ‘Without You,’ Miley marks her 10th career visit to the Hot 100’s top 10 – a chart region she’s not seen since ‘Malibu’ peaked at #10 in 2017. The latest trip comes with quite the feat, however, as Cyrus – at 28-years-young – is now the youngest artist to boast a top 10 hit in three separate decades.
“Her top 10s, in order of peak date, prior to “Without You”: “See You Again” (No. 10, 2008); “7 Things” (No. 9, 2008); “The Climb” (No. 4, 2009); “He Could Be the One” (Hannah Montana; No. 10, 2009); “Party in the U.S.A.” (No. 2, 2009); “Can’t Be Tamed” (No. 8, 2010); “We Can’t Stop” (No. 2, 2013); “Wrecking Ball” (No. 1, three weeks, 2013); and “Malibu” (No. 10, 2017).”
Among females, she joins a list of acts that includes the likes of Beyonce, Madonna, Taylor Swift, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Cher, Lady Gaga, Aretha Franklin, Barbra Streisand, and only a few others who have completed the same task. Among more recent female achievers, Miley is only one of five to have boasted such feat over the last three decades – a list that only includes Gaga, Swift, Carey, and Beyonce.

MOOD! #WithoutYou w/ @thekidlaroi is Top 10 on @billboard Hot 100 this week! It’s my 10th top 10 record, a milestone in my musical career! Even more special because I am now 1 of just 5 female artists (& the youngest) to have these songs span over 3 decades! pic.twitter.com/K1GUjt1xz2
