Billboard and VersusGame have joined forces to bring music fans a one-of-a-kind, user-generated experience with games that test knowledge of pop culture for a chance to win prizes. Billboard is hosting bi-weekly head-to-head challenges on entertainment and pop culture gaming app VersusGame, where fans can vote on their favorite artists and songs and wager on who will top the charts and more. VersusGame data shows that fans have predicted correct chart outcomes nearly three out of four times so far.
Last week’s challenges featured the following questions:
Next week will mark the 100th week on the Billboard 200 for Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia. Will the album spend its centennial frame in the top 40: Yes or No?
Answer: Yes, Future Nostalgia ranks at No. 30 on the Billboard 200 (dated March 12) with 18,000 equivalent album units earned, according to MRC Data.
They collaborated on a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 last year, but whose solo song will be higher on next week’s chart: Lil Nas X’s “Thats What I Want” or Jack Harlow’s “Nail Tech”?
Answer: “Thats What I Want.” Lil Nas X’s latest hit ranks at No. 11 on the Hot 100 (after reaching No. 9), while “Nail Tech” places at No. 41 (a week after it launched at No. 18).
