A week after reaching #1 on the US Albums Chart, The Kid Laroi has made history, hitting #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with his single ‘Stay’.
The collaboration with Justin Bieber jumped from #4 to #1 in its fourth week in the chart, becoming The Kid Laroi’s first-ever chart-topping single in the US.
With his move to #1, the 17-year-old Sydney-born hip hop artist becomes the youngest-ever Australian artist to reach #1 on the US Singles Chart and the first-ever Indigenous Australian artist to achieve a US #1 single. He’s the first Australian-born male solo artist to top the Hot 100 since Rick Springfield hit #1 with ‘Jessie’s Girl’ in August 1981 and the first Australian male solo artist to hit #1 since Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used To Know' in 2012.
The #1 single comes a week after The Kid Laroi’s debut mixtape F*ck Love hit #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
In a post to Instagram social, the teenage star celebrated his back-to-back chart-toppers, while also revealing he's recently contracted COVID-19.
‘Stay’ currently sits at #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart for a fourth week straight.
