‘Way 2 Sexy’ is one of a record 259 songs Drake has placed on this chart, and one of 54 in the top ten (also a record). This is his 9th song to reach #1.
Of the two songs, I definitely prefer ‘Bad Habits.’ This one is fine but doesn’t grab me the way ‘Bad Habits’ does, at least not on my first listen.
Country songs don’t often make it to the top tier of the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Nas X’s ‘Old Town Road’ (hardly a traditional country song) is the only one to hit #1 in the last decade. Before that, only six songs in the previous 40 years accomplished that feat.
Walter Hayes’ ‘Fancy Like’ didn’t quite make it to #1, but it did peak at #3 and sits at #5 this week. Like so many songs these days, this one got its boost from TikTok, when Hayes recorded a video of him and his daughter dancing to the track. It racked up 2 1/2 million views and became the soundtrack of many a TikTokker’s clips.
Lil Nas X owns the third spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 with ‘Industry Baby,’ his third single to reach #1.
At #4 is an artist with only two #1 hits so far, but nine in the top ten and 43 in the Hot 100. Ed Sheeran’s ‘Bad Habits’ has spent 19 weeks on the chart, peaking at #2 in August but falling just short of joining ‘Shape of You’ and ‘Perfect’ at #1.
Sitting at the #1 spot is Adele’s ‘Easy On Me,’ which has occupied that perch since its debut a month ago.
At #2 is ‘Stay’ by Australian rapper Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber. The pair previously collaborated on a track for Bieber’s album Justice, released earlier this year.
