Metallica Album Released at Number 2; SZA’s ‘Kill Bill’ Finally #1 Song


strong, mighty, valiant came strong this week Billboard 200 The group’s last album, “72 Seasons”, took the 2nd place, and “One Thing at a Time” by Morgan Wallen, the recently indomitable leader of the list, almost came into view. Wallen extended its #1 run to seven weeks at a time, adding another 166,000 album-equivalent units to its tally, while Metallica debuted with 146,000 units.

On Billboard Hot 100Meanwhile, SZA It eventually reached #1, where it had been in circulation for weeks, with “Kill Bill”. The song stayed at number 2 for eight weeks, then dropped to number 4 last week and finally got the boost it needed to top the charts in this final frame.

During the watch week of April 14-20, “Kill Bill” reached 28.3 million streams, up 32% on air, as measured by Luminate and reported by Billboard; hits fell just 1% to 86.5 million.

Other highlights from the top tiers of the Hot 100 include “Princess Diana”, which was ranked #4 for the collaboration between Ice Spice and Nicki Minaj.

And history was made when Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma shared the honor of having the first regional Mexican song to hit the Top 5 in Hot 100 history with “Ella Baila Sola” – just a week after it was an impressive success at the time. It left its mark as the top 10 regional Mexican hits in chart history. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the song is slightly bigger internationally (for now) than in the US: “Ella Baila Sola” peaked at #1 on the Billboard global songs chart.

Morgan Wallen’s tenure tops both album charts And The Hot 100 was limited to one week at a time, as his song “Last Night” dropped to #2 after topping the singles chart last week, eventually succumbing to pressure from SZA. Another ex-leader that trails at number 3 on the list is Miley Cyrus’ permanent “Flowers”. Cyrus’ melody is enjoying week ten on the Radio Songs chart.

Taylor Swift earned a trophy on the album chart this week for her love for the Eras Tour helping her 2019 album “Lover” hit the top 10 and peak at #9 on the Billboard 200 for the first time in three years. While his albums are in the top 10, his latest work “Midnights” continues to be in the 4th place.

If “Lover” doesn’t pull back and his Record Store Day album “Folklore: The Long Pond Sessions” goes as expected, Swift could have three top 10 albums on the chart next week.

Other top 10 albums include recent efforts by Luke Combs, Metro Boomin, and Bad Bunny, and a previous entry that Wallen gave him two top spots.
