Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande’s “Rain On Me” Debuts At #1
Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain On Me” has debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Rain On Me” notched 72,000 downloads throughout the week ending on 5/28 thanks to digital downloads that accompanied physical cassettes, CD, and vinyl singles. It drew 31.4 million US streams and 11.1 million audience impressions.
It’s the 39th song ever to debut at the top of the chart, and the fourth to do so this year. That ties 1995 and 2018 for the record for most Hot 100 #1 debuts in a given year. Gaga also becomes the third solo act to have topped the Hot 100 in the ’00s, ’10s, and ’20s, following Mariah Carey (who achieved the feat with “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in January) and Beyoncé, who matched that after her and Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” went #1 last week.
Chromatica came out on Friday and will be eligible for next weeks Billboard 200. Gunna’s Wunna topped that chart this week.
