Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Vampire’ Flies Back to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Vampire’ Flies Back to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Olivia Rodrigo’s former Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 “Vampire” surges back to the chart’s summit, from No. 9. Plus, her “Bad Idea Right?” roars to a new No. 7 high, from No. 26, as her sophomore album Guts, featuring both songs, launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.


Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Guts’ Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Albums Chart


Notably, as “Vampire” first led the Hot 100 in July and returns to the top after nine weeks below the top spot, it ties for the longest gap between No. 1 stays among songs in a single release cycle over the chart’s 65-year history; Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” ruled for two weeks in September-October 2013 before swinging back for a third frame in the lead that December, as a parody clip, with the song’s original audio, by YouTuber Stephen Kardynal, went viral.

(Among all songs, the only longer breaks between No. 1 Hot 100 runs belong to Chubby Checker’s “The Twist” and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” – each over multiple release cycles. The former returned to the top after a wait of a year, three months and three weeks, between 1960 and 1962, after it re-entered the chart thanks to new popularity among adult audiences; Carey’s Yuletide anthem has led for 12 total weeks, via annual reigns beginning in December 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022.)

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital singles sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites are excluded from chart calculations. All charts (dated Sept. 23, 2023) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Sept. 19).

“Vampire” returns to No. 1 on the Hot 100 up 82% to 22.8 million streams in the Sept. 8-14 tracking week, while “Bad Idea Right?” vaulted by 121% to 22.1 million streams, as the latter wins the Hot 100’s top Streaming Gainer award. The first two singles from Guts skyrocket 12-3 (following a week at No. 1) and 26-4 (after reaching No. 3), respectively, on the Streaming Songs chart.

On Radio Songs, “Vampire” holds at its No. 6 high (55.8 million impressions, down 7%) and “Bad Idea Right?” bumps 43-39 (16.2 million, up 15%). Plus, the songs sold 4,000 (up 89%, good for top Sales Gainer honors on the Hot 100) and 2,000 (up 42%), respectively.


Olivia Rodrigo Adds 18 More Shows to the Guts World Tour


“Vampire” debuted atop the Hot 100 dated July 15 and has spent nine of its subsequent 10 weeks on the chart in the top 10. “Bad Idea Right?” previously peaked at No. 10 upon its Aug. 26 debut.

“Vampire” became Rodrigo’s third Hot 100 No. 1, after “Drivers License” dominated for eight weeks beginning in January 2021 and “Good 4 U” led for one week that May.

Guts, released on Geffen/Interscope Records, enters the Billboard 200 with 302,000 equivalent album units in its first week, Rodrigo’s biggest week on the chart. It’s her second Billboard 200 No. 1, after Sour premiered on top in June 2021 (with 295,000 units) and spent five weeks at the summit. Meanwhile, with “Vampire” serving as the lead single from Guts after “Drivers License” introduced Sour, Rodrigo became the first artist ever to debut the lead singles from two career-opening albums at No. 1 on the Hot 100.


What Do We Take From Doja Cat’s ‘Paint the Town Red’ Becoming Rap’s First Hot 100 No. 1…


Doja Cat’s “Paint the Town Red” retreats to No. 2 on the Hot 100, a week after it hit No. 1. It drew 37.2 million in radio reach (up 16%) and 27.3 million streams (down 2%) and sold 7,000 (down 10%) Sept. 8-14. A week earlier, the song became the rapper/singer’s second leader, following “Say So,” featuring Nicki Minaj, for a week in 2020. It also became the chart’s first rap No. 1 in over a year.

“Paint the Town Red” concurrently crowns the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for a fourth week each. The track is from Doja Cat’s fourth studio album, Scarlet, due Friday (Sept. 22).

Zach Bryan’s “I Remember Everything,” featuring Kacey Musgraves, dips 2-3 on the Hot 100, two weeks after it debuted at No. 1. It leads Streaming Songs (30.1 million, down 5%) and the multi-metric Hot Country Songs, Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Rock Songs charts for a third week each.

Luke Combs’ cover of Tracy Chapman’s No. 6-peaking 1988 Hot 100 classic “Fast Car” backs up 3-4 after eight weeks at its No. 2 high. Still, it tops Radio Songs for a third week (77.3 million, down 1%).

Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” descends 4-5 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 3, and Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night” drops 5-6, following 16 weeks at No. 1, the most ever for a non-collaboration.

Below Rodrigo’s “Bad Idea Right?” at No. 7 on the Hot 100, as the track also rebounds for a second week at No. 1 on the multi-metric Hot Alternative Songs chart, SZA’s “Snooze” slips to No. 8 from its No. 7 Hot 100 best, as it leads the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart for a ninth week; Gunna’s “Fukumean” falls 8-9 on the Hot 100, after hitting No. 4; and Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night” retreats to No. 10 from its No. 6 high.
