So, what have been all the brand new songs that reached No. 1 on the Billboard Scorching 100?
Main off the 12 months was the Encanto soundtrack standout “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” which had households singing alongside from the second the film dropped on Disney Plus — even when some dad and mom had to take action reluctantly. Subsequent, Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” — a sleeper hit from June 2020 — held the highest spot for 5 weeks and broke the file for the longest charting song on the Scorching 100 of all time at 91 weeks. Glass Animals have been booted by British famous person Harry Types, whose “As It Was” turned an inescapable hit, spending a whopping 15 weeks at No. 1.

That was simply lengthy sufficient to get pushed apart by Beyonce’s comeback single “Break My Soul,” which ceded the height to Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl.” Steve Lacy’s shock hit “Bad Habit” took over for 3 weeks in October earlier than being changed by Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ gender-bending “Unholy.”
However for the previous couple of weeks, there’s been one reigning queen: Taylor Swift, who has dominated all November with the ever present TikTok fave “Anti-Hero.” Now, Mariah Carey, who has already returned to the Hot 100 along with her dependable vacation mainstay “All I Need For Christmas Is You,” stands a reasonably respectable likelihood of taking the highest spot after doing so each December for a formidable three years operating. Will she make it 4? If she doesn’t, blame Taylor Swift. She’s the issue.
