Chart Check [Hot 100]: Olivia Rodrigo Becomes First Female To Chart 9 Songs in Top 20 Concurrently

Published: Thursday 3rd Jun 2021 by Rashad

It’s pretty safe to say Olivia Rodrigo broke Billboard this week.

Thanks to her inaugural LP, ‘Sour,’ the 18-year-old entered the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 with the most record-setting set of accomplishments in modern chart history.

As we previously reported, Rodrigo reigns over this week’s Billboard 200 with the biggest sales week of the year thanks to  ‘Sour’ – the first debut album in history to premiere atop the tally after two songs from its tracklist premiered atop the Hot 100.  What’s more, the effort owns the largest sales week for any act’s debut charting effort since Billboard switched its sales metrics to include streaming.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg.

On the Hot 100, all 11 tracks from ‘Sour’ appear inside the hit list’s top 40.  Although Rodrigo is the first female to lay claim to this record with tunes from a debut album, the first female act to accomplish the feat overall is Ariana Grande with songs from her fifth studio album, ‘Thank U Next.’  Unlike Grande, all of Olivia’s songs landed in the top 30 – making her the only female to boast such.

Of the 11 songs in the top 30, nine of them appear in the top 20 – making the 18-year-old the first female act (fifth overall) to land as many tunes in the chart region simultaneously.  Look below to see where all the tunes from ‘Sour’ are found on this week’s Hot 100.

No. 2 – “Good 4 U”

No. 3 – “Deja Vu”

No. 9 – “Traitor”

No. 11 – “Drivers License”

No. 12 – “Brutal”

No. 14 – “Enough for You”

No. 15 – “Happier”

No. 18 – “Favorite Crime”

No. 19 – “1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back”

No. 24 – “Jealousy, Jealousy”

No. 29 – “Hope Ur OK”

Although she occupies almost 50% of the top 20 by her lonesome, look below to see who joins Liv on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100.

    This is crazy and seems sketchy AF.

  7. What? June 3, 2021

    They really need to make a new billboard and end all records post the streaming channel started. Keep all these cheap feats in a separate chart/era. These ‘record breaking’ things happening lately are so cheap. It used to just be PHYSICAL sales and radio airplay. Now if someone presses play and keeps it on repeat, goes on a 2 week vacation, comes home and it’s still playing..that counts to charts? Ludicrous.

      The golden age of music is long gone. The rules must change for newer artists to break records. The music alone isn’t enough anymore.
