Madonna has joined Cher as the only women to have debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 in five separate decades.
The “Queen of Pop” equaled Cher’s record as her new song “Popular,” featuring The Weeknd and Playboi Carti, debuted on the chart dated June 17.
With this, Madonna debuted titles on the Hot 100 in five separate decades – the 1980s, ’90s, 2000s, ’10s and ’20s.
“Popular,” released on June 2 through XO and Republic Records, made its maiden entry on the Hot 100 at No. 43 with 10.1 million official streams, 2 million airplay audience impressions and 4,000 sold in the United States in the June 2-8 charting week, according to Luminate.
“Popular” is the second single from The Idol Vol. 1, the soundtrack to the Weeknd’s HBO drama television series, “The Idol.” The song was written by the Weeknd, Metro Boomin, Mike Dean, Playboi Carti, John Flippin, Michael Walker, and Sam Levinson.
“Popular” marks Mdonna’s 58th Hot 100 hit, the seventh-most among women in the chart’s history.
Elvis Presley has appeared on the Hot 100 in seven separate decades, while Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney have done so in six decades.
