ATLANTA, GEORGIA – MAY 12: Juice WRLD performs in concert during “Death Race For Love” tour at … [+]
22 spots on the Hot 100 belong to Lil Uzi Vert this week, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any room for other artists to collect big hits and rise the ranks with tunes they’ve been promoting for some time now.
Here’s a look at five of the most important moves on this week’s Hot 100 singles chart.
No. 13 – Lil Uzi Vert – “Myron”
For the second week in a row, Lil Uzi Vert owns at least one-fifth of all the spots on the Hot 100, and this time around he actually dominates more than he did last frame. The rapper currently claims 22 rungs on the most competitive tally, which stands as one of the most impressive showings of all time. Leading the way this time around is “Myron,” which is featured on the new deluxe edition of Eternal Atake. That cut opens at No. 13, becoming another top 40 win for the musician.
No. 18 – Camila Cabello – “My Oh my (ft. DaBaby)”
Usually, Camila Cabello songs debut fairly high on the Hot 100 and then slowly work their way down, as she is one of the most popular artists in the world right now, and her fan base often rushes to stream whatever she delivers once its available. Her current single “My Oh My” has faced quite the struggle climbing the tally, and it finally reaches the top 20 on the list after 15 weeks of working toward the top. The song, the latest single from her sophomore solo album Romance, is Cabello’s sixth tune to enter the region on her own, her eighth when including the music she released as a member of Fifth Harmony. It is featured act DaBaby’s sixth top 20 as well.
No. 20 – YNW Melly – “Suicidal (ft. Juice WRLD)”
Released last year, YNW Melly’s “Suicidal” reached the top 40 in its original form, but now that a remix featuring late rapper Juice WRLD has been posted online, the single returns to the Hot 100 in glorious form. The cut reappears at No. 20, establishing a new best showing in the process.
The track is now just the second top 20 for YNW Melly and the fourth for Juice WRLD, who has claimed two of those since passing away last December.
No. 36 – Gabby Barrett – “I Hope”
Gabby Barrett may not have won the sixteenth season of American Idol (she came in third), but she has emerged as the musician with the biggest career from the first edition of the rebooted reality show. The country singer’s breakout tune “I Hope” has jumped to No. 36 on this week’s Hot 100, rising into the top 40 for the first time. The cut has been performing well on the Hot Country Songs list for some time now, and the future seems bright.
No. 38 – Lil Mosey – “Blueberry Faygo”
Just 18 years old, it’s impressive that Lil Mosey has a career at all, let alone one that he has already been building for years. The hip-hop musician, who has now released two albums that have reached the top 40 on the Billboard 200, scores his first top 40 hit single with “Blueberry Faygo,” which enters the important region this frame, landing at No. 38.
