Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” and Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” won’t be the only songs battling for the No. 1 spot on next week’s Billboard Hot 100. According to Billboard, Post Malone’s “Rockstar,” a 21 Savage-assisted single released last week, has a chance of making it’s debut in the top spot.
Based on preliminary data for the tracking week, incumbent No. 1 “Look” could draw more than 30 million U.S. streams and 75 million in radio audience and sell more than 45,000 downloads.
However, current runner-up “Yellow” could tally more than 35 million U.S. streams and 60 million airplay impressions and, like “Look,” sell more than 45,000.
Meanwhile, per new data received this afternoon, Post Malone’s “Rockstar” could launch with more than 40 million U.S. streams and 70,000 sold.
Based on those forecasts, the songs should engage in a tight battle for No. 1, with “Rockstar” or “Yellow,” given their growth in streaming, perhaps enough to give either song the edge over “Look,” and possibly grant Post Malone, 21 Savage or Cardi B each act’s first trip to the top of the Hot 100.
