Rita Ora’s “I Will Never Let You Down” Enters Hot 100 at #99

The latest edition of the Billboard Hot 100 is very kind to Rita Ora.

In addition to welcoming Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow,” on which she is featured, to the Top 20 (at #19), the chart also makes room for her solo single “I Will Never Let You Down.”

Produced by Calvin Harris, the song, which Mediabase says is one of pop radio’s 25 most-played tracks, debuts at #99 on this week’s edition of the Hot 100. It is Ora’s first lead single to chart since her debut release “How We Do (Party)” peaked at #62 on Billboard’s all-encompassing single track chart.

“I Will Never” is one of several songs to debut on this week’s edition of the Hot 100.

Those other debuts include Ariana Grande + Jessie J + Nicki Minaj’s “Bang Bang” (#6), Maroon 5’s “It Was Always You” (#45), Maddie and Tae’s “Girl in a Country Song” (#71), Hilary Duff’s “Chasing the Sun” (#79) and Katy Perry’s “This is How We Do” (#88).
