Basically, our favourite travelling-during-a-pandemic superstar is predicted to get her first number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with her hit single "Levitating", featuring DaBaby.
The single has becoming a TikTok favourite, which is helping it climb the charts. The rise on TikTok was due to her Grammy performance, apparently, with the snippet "You want me. I want you, baby" being particularly popular.
Previously, Dua Lipa's highest charting hit was "Don't Start Now" which reached #2, but was blocked from #1 by The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" (which is still going strong lbr). "New Rules", her breakout hit, peaked at #6.
"Levitating" by @DUALIPA ft. @DaBabyDaBaby is projected to hit #1 on this week's Hot 100. It will become Dua's first #1 hit. It will also be the song with the third longest climb to #1 by weeks on chart in the history of the Hot 100 (32 weeks).— Talk of the Charts (@talkofthecharts) May 15, 2021
