As fans anxiously await SZA‘s sophomore album, the follow-up to her GRAMMY-nominated 2017 debut ‘CTRL,’ they’re gravitating to everything the 30-year-old’s serving up – a measure that’s lifted her name to a number of personal milestones recently.
After kicking off the year with her first ever solo Hot 100 top 10 hit (as we reported here), the songstress (born Solána Rowe) followed with the highest Hot 100 debut of her career courtesy of her co-starring role on Doja Cat‘s ‘Kiss Me More’ – which arrived at #7 last month (as we reported here).
Now, thanks to continued gains at streaming and radio, the ‘Good Days’ singer is set for even better charting days thanks to the Doja duet.
As listed here, ‘Kiss Me More’ puckered up to a new peak on the Hot 100 this week. Here are the numbers that powered the Pop bop to its #5 position.
- Radio airplay: 25.9 million
- Streaming: 25.6 million streams
- Digital downloads: 5,300 sold
The top 5 entry not only marks the first time the song cracked the chart territory, but also comes as a milestone for both artists. For Doja, it’s her third career top five Hot 100 hit and follows the chart-topping ‘Say So’ (2020) and the #2-peaking ’34+35 (Remix)’ with Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion (2021).
For SZA, it’s her first visit to the top 5 and stands as the highest rung she’s reached on the Hot 100 to date. Her previous best was the #7 peak of her 2018 ‘Black Panther’ soundtrack hit ‘All the Stars’ with Kendrick Lamar.
