Maroon 5 & Kendrick Lamar’s “Don’t Wanna Know” Reaches #1 On US iTunes Sales Chart

Maroon 5 [ABC]

Maroon 5’s “Don’t Wanna Know (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” made its US iTunes debut late on the night of October 11.

By the morning of October 14, it was #1 on the all-genre single sales chart.

To earn #1, “Don’t Wanna Know” moved ahead of The Chainsmokers’ “Closer (featuring Halsey).”

While “Closer” has generally led the chart since the beginning of August, some songs — including Lady Gaga’s “Perfect Illusion” and Niall’s “This Town” — were able to temporarily seize the throne.

“Don’t Wanna Know” just seized the throne. Will it be able to keep the throne for a meaningful amount of time?
