New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Travis Scott's fittingly titled "Highest in the Room" has opened atop the Billboard Hot 100. It's Travis
Scott's first song to debut at #1, but his second #1 overall following "Sicko Mode," which topped the Hot 100 in December 2018 after a 17-week climb. Per Billboard, it's the 35th time a song has debuted at #1, and the first since Jonas Brothers' "Sucker
" in March.
Lizzo's "Truth Hurts
" is now at #2. Shawn Mendes
Cabello's "Señorita" has slipped down to #3, and Dan + Shay
and Justin Bieber's "10,000 Hours" debuted at #4.
"Highest" is thus far expected to be a one-off release. As Trav explained to Zane Lowe earlier this month, he's presently "in no rush" to put together another album.
"But I'm always down to drop music and serve some packs to the fans," he said. "It's time for the fans to eat."
Fans can fill the void in the meantime by heading down to Houston, Texas
for the 2019 edition of Travis
Scott's ASTROWORLD Festival, which the artist promises will be "a lot crazier" with "a bit more rampage" than last year.
