British actor Tom Hiddleston is now a Billboard-charting artist, as his track “Very Full” debuts at No. 10 on the World Digital Song Sales tally dated July 17.
The song, which Hiddleston sings almost entirely in Norwegian, debuts after selling nearly 500 downloads in the week ending July 8, according to MRC Data.
“Very Full” plays in the third episode of Marvel and Disney+’s Loki, in which Hiddleston portrays the title character. In the context of the series, Loki sings “Very Full” in Asgardian (the native language of the fictional planet Asgard that he originates); however, the language used for Asgardian in the show is Norwegian.
The track is titled “Jeg Saler Min Ganger” in the episode’s end credits (translating to “I Seal My Times”), but named “Very Full” on the Loki: Volume 1 soundtrack.
The song was penned by Norwegian singer-songwriter Benedicte Mauseth and Norwegian author Erlend Nødtvedt.
“Very Full” is the latest song from a Marvel project to reach Billboard‘s charts. In March, Kathryn Hahn’s “Agatha All Along” debuted on the all-genre Digital Song Sales chart, sparked by its feature in WandaVision.
The World Digital Song Sales chart ranks the top-selling non-English-language and non-Spanish-language songs each week. It can also include songs played with instruments that are native to countries outside the continental U.S. (with most Spanish-language and non-English-language classical titles excluded, as Billboard has charts specifically for Latin and classical music). As “Very Full” is sung almost entirely in Norwegian, it qualifies for the ranking.
