Hot 100: Olivia Rodrigo Breaks MULTIPLE Billboard Records as ‘good 4 u’ Debuts at #1

‘Drivers License’ star Olivia Rodrigo has driven her name right into Billboard history books again thanks to the success of her latest single, ‘good 4 u.’

Details inside:

Just four months after debuting at #1 with her debut single, ‘Drivers License’ (which now holds the record for the longest-running debut #1 single in history), Rodrigo’s found herself in a similar spot with her latest release ‘good 4 u.’

Premiering atop the refreshed Hot 100 this week, the song comes as the 53rd of the 1,124 No. 1 hits in the Hot 100’s 62-year archives to arrive at its summit.

Here are the numbers that drove it to the top:

  • Streams: 43.2 million U.S. streams
  • Digital Downloads: 12,000 downloads
  • Radio Airplay: 3.8 million radio airplay audience impressions

At 18-years-young, Olivia is now the youngest artist in history to own two #1 debuts on the Hot 100.  What’s more, Billboard reports:

“Sour [the parent album of “good 4 u”] makes history as the first debut album to include two songs that have entered the Hot 100 at No. 1, thanks to “Drivers License” and now “Good 4 U.” The only previous albums to house two tracks that each premiered on top were by then-well-established stars: Mariah Carey’s Daydream (“Fantasy” and “One Sweet Day,” with Boyz II Men, in 1995-96); Drake’s Scorpion (“God’s Plan” and “Nice for What,” 2018); and Grande’s Thank U, Next (“Thank U, Next” and “7 Rings,” 2018-19). Those were, in each case, those artists’ fifth proper LPs.”

As if that’s not enough to celebrate, ‘Sour’ – already the first album in history to own two #1 debuts BEFORE it hits shelves – is set to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 next week with some of the year’s biggest sales to date (as we reported here).  If and when it does, Rodrigo will become the first artist to debut at #1 on both the main singles and albums charts with her inaugural project.

Until we find out for sure, look below to see who joins her in this week’s top 10.

      Horrible song. I don’t get the hype. Mediocre music!

  5. True Tea May 24, 2021

    Ew! Are those the bops for the summer, lol

  6. J May 24, 2021

    Every day another record is broken. I mean there are literally billions more people on Earth as there used to be even a couple decades ago. And only 12,000 downloads will get you a #1 in 2021!! Let that have been Ciara a few years back

  7. Roberta FlackSabbath May 24, 2021

    So some people stream it with their subscriptions, but NO ONE will buy it.

    Who cares if it’s #1 this week. Check back in 10 years to see if anyone is still listening to it, or if its been covered, etc. It’s disposable and forgettable. Lots of stunts to get it to #1.

    Normani could never

    • UHoesFunny May 24, 2021

      • Shayla Queen 👑 May 24, 2021

        Normani hasn’t even sold that as there is and will be no album. So, again, NORMANI COULD NEVER.

      • UHoesFunny May 25, 2021

  9. UHoesFunny May 24, 2021

    Better looking and more talented than Camicky, good for her. Well deserved. Horse face could never 🐴

  10. Really? May 24, 2021

    Congrats to her. Not my cup of tea! Next week BTS will be Number 1. So Leave the door open drops to number 4. What happened to all those radio listeners? This chart is officially rigged. Very Manipulative to the core. Billboard knows exactly what they are doing.

    • Billie May 24, 2021

      Yup I wonder myself it had 87 million impressions last week d a m n cheaters!!

  11. Roberta FlackSabbath May 24, 2021

    Can’t wait for Barely Tolerable Singers to knock her from #1 next week.

    She’s the star of a Disney+ show and all she does is whine.

  12. Keyword May 24, 2021

    And chlamdyia the horse?? Oh yeah crying somewhere about her flop career break and suicide at racist therapy 😂😂😂😂

  13. Kyle May 24, 2021

    I feel bad for all the artists we use to call flops back in the early 2010’s. Nowadays all u need is 12,000 downloads to be #1 & payola smh…

    • J May 25, 2021

      Right! Hence why most of them have completely stopped making music! The entertainment industry is pretty horrible.
