The Kid LAROI, age 17, achieves his first Hot Rock & Alternative Songs No. 1 in his first visit to the chart. It’s also Cyrus’ first ruler and second top 10, after “Plastic Hearts” hit No. 8 in December, the same week that her parent album of the same name began a six-week command on Top Rock Albums.
Concurrently, “Without You” rises 3-1 on the Hot Alternative Songs chart. As previously reported, it leaps 23-8 on the all-format Billboard Hot 100, becoming The Kid LAROI’s second top 10 and Cyrus’ 10th. She scores her best Hot 100 rank since 2013, when “Wrecking Ball” led the list.
The song (in its original version) is from The Kid LAROI’s F*ck Love, which reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in November 2020, after the track was added to its deluxe edition. The set has earned 947,000 equivalent album units to date.
“Without You” is just the second song to crown Hot Rock & Alternative Songs in 2021, after 24kGoldn‘s “Mood,” featuring Iann Dior, dominated for 35 nonconsecutive weeks total. Since it first topped the Sept. 5, 2020, ranking, “Mood” had previously fallen from No. 1 only once, when Taylor Swift‘s “Willow” led for one week (Dec. 26).
“Mood” is the second-longest-leading hit in the chart’s decade-plus history, behind Panic! at the Disco‘s “High Hopes,” which locked up the top spot for 65 weeks in 2018-20.
