Olivia Rodrigo makes a show–stopping and yet unsurprising return to the Billboard charts, marking her comeback in an immensely successful manner that befits her previous achievements in the music industry.
The pop singer’s latest single Vampire debuts at No. 1 on this week’s Hot 100 chart. Compiled by Billboard, the weekly tally ranks the most–consumed songs in the United States. The chart will refresh on July 11, and at that moment, Rodrigo will replace Morgan Wallen at the top spot. Wallen’s single, “Last Night,” has enjoyed a strong run since its release in mid–March, occupying the No. 1 position for an impressive 13 non–consecutive weeks.
Vampire proved to be an instant monster hit from the moment of its release, excelling across various metrics that contribute to the Hot 100. The song sold 26,000 copies, garnered 35.5 million streams, and reached 26.3 million people through radio airplay in just the first seven days it was available, as reported by Billboard.
With Vampire, Rodrigo now secures her third career No. 1 on the Hot 100. Her debut single, “Drivers License,” made an extraordinary entrance to the chart’s summit in January 2021, making her the first artist to debut their debut song at No. 1.
A few months later, prior to the release of her debut album SOUR, Rodrigo’s follow–up single good 4 u also debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100. This accomplishment solidified Rodrigo’s status as one of the few artists who have attained multiple instant chart–toppers. And now, with the debut of Vampire at No. 1, Rodrigo has added yet another milestone to her repertoire. She joins the ranks of Mariah Carey and Travis Scott and ties for the sixth–most No. 1 debuts in the chart’s history.
