If you don’t believe “God Is a Woman,” just look at the Billboard charts this week.
Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” is #1 for a fifth week on the Billboard Hot 100. It’s the first song by a woman to spend its first five weeks on top since 2015, when Adele‘s “Hello” did it. Meanwhile, Halsey is at #2 with “Without Me,” and Ariana’s “thank u, next” is #4.
Cardi B blasts in at #5 thanks to “Please Me,” her new collabo with Bruno Mars, and Ariana’s “break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored” is #8.
Over on Billboard‘s radio airplay-based Pop Songs chart, “Eastside,” Halsey’s collaboration with Benny Blanco and Khalid, takes over the #1 spot after a record 31 weeks. The previous record was set by Alessia Cara‘s “Here,” which took 26 weeks to top the chart.
On Instagram, Halsey wrote a sweet tribute to Benny Blanco, a chart-topping producer and songwriter who’s never had a hit under his own name before.
“Benny was really nervous to put out his first song for this artist project,” she wrote, adding, “He always makes me feel confident and secure about my art. Benny is the kindest, and most caring person I know.”
“Benny has made me the artist I am today because he took my anxious grip off my heart and convinced me if I just liked myself, the world would like me too,” she added. “And for that, there is no good enough way to say thank you. But having the #1 song on the radio together comes pretty close. I love ya @itsbennyblanco.”
