Camila Cabello, Young Thug Rule Streaming Songs Chart for the First Time
“Havana” rises to No. 1 on the chart upon the release of Cabello’s debut solo album, 'Camila.'
The song, featuring Young Thug, scores 44.9 million streams in the week ending Jan. 18, a boost of 34 percent compared to the previous week, according to Nielsen Music.
It becomes both Cabello and Young Thug’s first No. 1 on the chart. Previously, Cabello rose as high as No. 11 (“Bad Things,” with Machine Gun Kelly, in February 2017), while Young Thug reached No. 4 as part of Rich Gang’s “Lifestyle” (November 2014).
"Havana" also makes gains on the On-Demand Streaming Songs chart, shooting 7-2 with 15.5 million on-demand audio streams (Post Malone’s “Rockstar” remains No. 1 with 16.8 million). The rise marks Cabello’s first top five on the chart and Young Thug’s second (he was featured on Drake’s “Sacrifices,” which reached No. 5 in April 2017).
Cabello ends up landing two songs in the top 10 of On-Demand Streaming Songs, as “Never Be the Same,” the album’s follow-up single to “Havana,” leaps 46-7 and is the chart’s greatest gainer. It racks up 12.8 million on-demand audio streams, up 102 percent.
The streaming increases are due to the release of Cabello’s debut solo album, Camila, which concurrently rules the Billboard 200 with 119,000 equivalent album units earned.
