I’m Tetris with Billboard News. Hope you had a great weekend! It’s Monday, September 18th, and we have a huge update for our charts.
On the Billboard 200, Olivia Rodrigo’s sophomore album Guts debuts at No. 1, making her the first female artist to debut their first two entries at No. 1 since Ariana Grande. But that’s not it for her or us. Today, we launched our Hot 100 in a brand new way for the first time on video and I couldn’t be happier to deliver you the goods. Let’s run it down!
This is the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 for the week dated September 23. Down from its No. 6 peak is “Dance the Night.” Gunna falls to No. 9. SZA’s “Snooze” is just shy of its No. 7 peak. But good idea, right? Olivia is up from No. 26. “Last Night” falls again to No. 6. Taylor’s “Summer” is still going at No. 5. “Fast Car” slows down to No. 4. And Zach Bryan is at No. 3 in his third week. Down from her first solo No. 1 last week, Doja Cat. And back at No. 1 for the first time since July… “Vampire.”
