Ella Mai is now Top 10!! The 10 Summers songstress has entered the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated June 2) with her first chart entry, as the fast-rising “Boo’d Up” jumps from No. 11 to No. 8.
After debuting on the April 14-dated Hot 100 at No. 78, the song reaches the top 10 in its eighth week on the chart. It also rises 7-6 on Streaming Songs (earning 28.6 million U.S. streams, up 23 percent, in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music), holds at No. 30 on Radio Songs (35.1 million in airplay audience, up 5 percent) and lifts 38-37 on Digital Song Sales.
Her breakthrough hit concurrently spends a second week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B Songs chart and holds at its No. 6 high on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
Mai is the first artist to take a debut Hot 100 entry to the top 10 in 2018, and the first since Lil Pump, whose “Gucci Gang” hit No. 3 in December. She’s the first woman to earn the honor since Cardi B, whose “Bodak Yellow” spent three weeks at No. 1 in October.
Further, Ella Mai’s EP Ready reaches the top 10 on Top R&B Albums (12-8), where it’s the chart’s Greatest Gainer, pushing by 12 percent to 10,000 equivalent album units. The set also hits new highs on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (No. 34) and the Billboard 200 (No. 65).
FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER GRATEFUL!
