SKRILLEX HELPS TRAVIS SCOTT TO TAKE THE #1 SPOT ON BILLBOARD HOT 100


December 6, 2018

After 17 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” finally hits #1, dropping Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” to #2. The song, featuring Drake, appearing on Scott’s album Astroworld, has made Scott one of the top-streamed artists in the US on Spotify’s Year In 2018 list

 

While perhaps coincidental, it’s worth noting that the week that Skrillex put out his remix of the song, it catapulted above the #1 song in the world at the moment.

Skrillex is definitely a powerhouse artist, and it’s certainly more than possible that his remix, though we called it rather disappointing, helped to propel the song ahead of Grande on the charts.

Sicko Mode” was the second single off Scott’s third studio album, ASTROWORLD, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The project eventually slipped within the top 10, but managed to regain the top slot this week with 71,000 album equivalent units earned. ASTROWORLD has now led the Billboard 200 for a total of three nonconsecutive weeks.

Regardless, congratulations are in order for Scott.
