Amid a top 10 dominated by pop and hip-hop tracks from the likes of Drake and Lil Nas X, Walker Hayes’ “Fancy Like” carved out a No. 5 finish on the Billboard Hot 100 this week for the second week in a row.
It previously peaked at No. 9 after catching fire on TikTok and being featured in an Applebee’s ad (the latter inspired by the song’s chorus, which references the restaurant chain). Speaking of TikTok, "Fancy Like" (which has also logged 11 weeks at No. 1 on Hot Country Songs) reached the top five on the tally following the debut of a remix featuring Kesha, who by the way scored her breakthrough hit with a song called..."Tik Tok."
A finish in the upper reaches of the Hot 100 is a rare crossover feat for a country artist that’s been accomplished by only a handful of others, including, most recently, Luke Combs ("Forever After All," No. 2) and Gabby Barrett ("I Hope" feat. Charlie Puth, No. 3). Walker’s only previous Hot 100-charting single was “You Broke Up With Me,” which peaked at No. 62 on the tally in Feb. 2018.
