Austin Post Challenges Ed Sheeran's Chart-Topping Streak

Mar 07, 2018

For the first time in months, Ed Sheeran's Shape of You has dropped off the Billboard Hot 100, allowing upcoming songwriters to challenge him for the No. 1 spot. Among his challengers is Austin Post (AKA Post Malone), who returns to the Top 3 this week following the release of "Psycho."

A collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, "Psycho" debuted at No. 2 on this week's Billboard Hot 100 making Post only the 9th artist (and 2nd rapper) to debut multiple songs in the top 2 spots. The first - "Rockstar" - ushered in Austin Post's Hot Hitmaker debut in September, alongside co-writer Louis Bell. 

Bell also enjoys a jump this week, from No. 14 to No. 7 due to his writing credit on both songs.
