Gomez posted about her excitement on her Instagram story, after songwriters Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter tagged her on their own.
“WHAT?! Omg!! Thank you SO much @billboardcharts for a first for me!! I’m so grateful,” she captioned the screenshot of the original Billboard article. “Thank you guys for streaming and committing to this song! It means the world to me! This song has my whole heart.” Gomez also shared a heartfelt post to her Insta feed.
The singer has appeared on the Hot 100 over the last decade, and “Lose You To Love Me” is the first leader she’s ever scored, with “Same Old Love” and “Good For You” feat. A$AP Rocky coming close at the No. 5 spot in 2016 and 2015, respectively.
Check out Gomez’s reaction below.
My first number 1!! This song is so dear to my heart. I’ve been working so hard to make this album as honest and fun as possible while remaining vulnerable enough to share where I am in life. I love you deeply and thank you so much for listening. I want to thank each and every person that was apart of this moment that I’ll never forget!
