Olivia Rodrigo’s Third Billboard Hot 100 No. 1: ‘Vampire’ Makes a Spectacular Debut
Olivia Rodrigo’s Third Billboard Hot 100 No. 1
Olivia Rodrigo stakes her claim on the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart once again with her latest hit, “Vampire,” making an impressive debut at No. 1. This marks Rodrigo’s third consecutive chart-topper, following the success of “Drivers License” and “Good 4 U” in 2021, both of which also debuted at No. 1.
“Vampire” serves as the flagship single from Rodrigo’s highly anticipated sophomore album, Guts, scheduled for release on September 8. This achievement solidifies Rodrigo’s position in music history as the first artist ever to have the lead singles from two debut albums debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100. After the massive success of “Drivers License,” which introduced her first album, Sour, Rodrigo continues to captivate audiences with her undeniable talent and remarkable chart dominance.
In a notable week on the Billboard Hot 100, two songs make their debut in the top 10. Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer,” originally featured on her 2019 album “Lover,” is now being promoted as her latest single. It leaps from 13 to 7, earning Swift her 41st top 10 hit and extending her record as the female artist with the most top 10 entries. Additionally, Gunna’s track “Fukumean” rises from 12 to 8, securing his fourth top 10 placement.

According to Luminate, the song garnered 35.5 million streams and received 26.3 million radio airplay audience impressions, aided by a radio edit conforming to FCC guidelines. It also achieved 26,000 sales, including 17,000 units sold as a combination of 7″ vinyl (priced at $10) and CD (priced at $3.50), along with 9,000 digital downloads. These outstanding numbers contributed to its No. 1 position on the charts.
“Vampire” becomes the 1,150th song to claim the top spot on the Hot 100 since its inception in August 1958. It is the 67th song to make a remarkable entrance at No. 1.

Additionally, it secures the No. 22 position on the Radio Songs chart, starting at No. 17 on Pop Airplay and No. 22 on Adult Pop Airplay.
In an interview with Billboard, Rodrigo shared her thoughts on “Vampire,” which she co-wrote with her primary collaborator Dan Nigro, who solely produced the track. She described it as their version of a rock opera, noting its homage to her singer-songwriter roots while showcasing a noticeable evolution. Rodrigo expressed her fondness for the song, considering it one of her personal favorites as it captures both familiarity and growth in a compelling manner.
