SZA Hits Highest Hot 100 Position of Her Career Thanks to Doja Cat’s ‘Kiss Me More’

Published: Wednesday 12th May 2021 by Rashad

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.

    And normani stans love claiming RCA records is a bad label cause normani’s career hasnt taken of.

    Doja cat and sza, 2 black women from RCA records slaying the charts.

    This is both doja and sza’s second top 10 hit this year. Talent will always win.

    No amount of sympathy or victimisation or Twitter hype can give u a career.

        It would be a better song without SZA. All she does is jump on at the end talking about “n**** n****” she just can’t help herself on what otherwise would have been a cute song

    SZA is an ORIGINAL. Trust she will be around much longer than Doja Cat who’s height of Creativity is imitating well established artists. When Doja 1st came out, no one cared about her music,.

    Doja had to create one of the most dumbest songs ever about a cow with fries stuck up her nose like a r***** for attention. Even Soulja Boy didn’t stoop this LOW for a hit, lol

    Meanwhile we have artists with no Top 10 hits who can drop new music & people will still buy it. The Billboard like the Scammys will one day hold no real value since artists such as Lil’ Nas X can score multiple Billboard hits & sell platinum records.
