"It's been a decade since I first charted on Hot Country Songs. To be sitting here after all this time on top of it feels so great," Hayes marvels.
Walker Hayes' viral hit "Fancy Like" ascends from No. 3 to No. 1 in its fifth week on Billboard's airplay-, sales- and streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart (dated July 24), marking his first leader on the list.
In the week ending July 15, the song, released on Monument Records, rose by 6% to 12.8 million U.S. streams, according to MRC Data, as it tops Country Streaming Songs for a second week. It sold 20,800 downloads and rebounds 2-1 for a fourth week atop Country Digital Song Sales.
On Country Airplay, "Fancy" leaps 53-38, up 118% to 1.9 million audience impressions in the week ending July 18. (Plus, Pop Airplay chart reporter WDJQ Akron, Ohio, played it 41 times in the tracking week, making it the station's ninth-most-played song in that span.)
