Post Malone & Morgan Wallen’s ‘I Had Some Help’ Soars In at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Post Malone notches his sixth leader and Wallen adds his second.

Post Malone’s “I Had Some Help,” featuring Morgan Wallen, launches at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. Post Malone achieves his sixth leader with the bitter breakup song and Wallen adds his second.

Notably, the track premieres with 76.4 million official U.S. streams, according to Luminate, the top total for a song in a single week since YouTube song user-generated content was removed from chart calculations in 2020. It surpasses Taylor Swift’s “Fortnight” – featuring Post Malone – which drew 76.2 million only three weeks earlier. Prior to the two songs, Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” held the mark with 76.1 million in its first frame, as reflected on charts dated Jan. 23, 2021.

“I Had Some Help” arrives as the 1,172nd No. 1 in the Hot 100’s history, and the 80th to debut in the top spot. It concurrently blasts to No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, where it’s established pop star Post Malone’s first leader and Wallen’s eighth.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital singles sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites are excluded from chart calculations. All charts (dated May 25, 2024) will update on tomorrow, May 21. For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both X, formerly known as Twitter, and Instagram.
