Travis Scott’s “Franchise” Debuts Atop Hot 100, Giving M.I.A. Her First #1 Single

Travis Scott’s latest single “Franchise” has debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It’s Scott’s third song to debut at #1 within a year — following last October’s “Highest In The Room” and his Kid Cudi collab “The Scotts” — and has set a new record for the fastest accumulation of #1 debuts in the chart’s history. (The previous record holder was Ariana Grande, who notched three #1 debuts within a year and four months.) It’s Scott’s fourth #1 overall.

Thanks to “Franchise,” Young Thug has his second #1 song and M.I.A. has her first. M.I.A.’s previous peak with “Paper Planes,” which made it to #4 in 2008. She also entered the Top 10 in 2012 as a featured guest on Madonna’s “Give Me All Your Luvin’.” (Travis Scott also got Kid Cudi his first #1 earlier this year with “The Scotts.”)

“Franchise” launched with 19.4 million US streams, 98,000 copies sold (58,000 on cassette and CD singles; 40,000 digital downloads), and 10.6 million radio impressions. It’s the 44th single to debut at #1 in the history of the Hot 100 and the ninth to do so this year.

Elsewhere on the Hot 100, BTS’ “Dynamite” slips to #2, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” is at #3, Drake and Lil Durk’s “Laugh Now Cry Later” is at #4, and 24kGoldn’s “Mood” rounds out the Top 5. More info here.
