Lil Tecca’s “Ran$om” is the most-streamed song in the U.S., but it pulled fewer than 30 million streams.
For the first time in nearly three years, the most-streamed song in the United States earned fewer than 30 million listens in a single week in the U.S.
In the tracking week ending Nov. 14 (Billboard charts dated Nov. 23), Lil Tecca’s “Ran$om” earned 28.5 million streams, according to Nielsen Music. That gives it the distinction as the most-streamed song in the U.S. for a 10th week, despite a 6% drop in streams from the previous tracking week that ended Nov. 7.
“Ran$om” is the first song to be the most-streamed in the country with a count below 30 million since the beginning of 2017. That’s when Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” featuring Gucci Mane, accumulated 29.3 million streams toward the charts dated Jan. 7, 2017. In that particular week, the song enjoyed its seventh and final week as the country’s most-streamed song, giving up the distinction the following week (Jan. 14, 2017) to Migos’ “Bad and Boujee,” featuring Lil Uzi Vert.
