Three of those songs – “Zeze,” “Highest in the Room” and now “The Scotts” – debuted at No. 1, making Scott just the second artist to have at least three No. 1 debuts on Streaming Songs which began in 2013. The only other act to do so? Drake, who has four, most recently with “Toosie Slide,” which “The Scotts” knocks out of No. 1 on Streaming Songs after a three-week reign.
As for Kid Cudi, “The Scotts” is his first No. 1 on Streaming Songs in his first appearance on the list. He’s the second artist in 2020 to score his first ruler, following Roddy Ricch with “The Box,” and the first to do so in his maiden appearance. (Many of Kid Cudi’s biggest hits, including “Day ‘N’ Nite” and “Pursuit of Happiness (Nightmare),” precede the inception of Streaming Songs.)
The latest Streaming Songs chart marks the first time two songs debut at Nos. 1 and 2 since the list dated Oct. 19, 2019. Now? “The Scotts” is followed by Juice WRLD’s posthumous single “Righteous” (29.1 million streams). Then? Scott’s “Highest in the Room” bowed at No. 1, while Juice WRLD again started one spot behind with his YoungBoy Never Broke Again collaboration “Bandit.”
As previously reported, “The Scotts” bows at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Scott’s third leader and Kid Cudi’s first.
