Carrie Underwood & Ludacris’ “The Champion” Debuts At #47 On Hot 100

“The Champion” starts within the Top 50 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Powered by strong first-week sales, Carrie Underwood’s Super Bowl anthem “The Champion (featuring Ludacris)” earns a spot on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The collaboration starts at #47 on the listing.

Billboard’s Hot 100 ranks songs from all genres based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.

“Champion,” as noted, fared particularly well on the sales front this week. It actually takes #3 on the all-genre Digital Song Sales chart. Only Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” (#1) and Camila Cabello’s “Havana (featuring Young Thug)” (#2) sold more US copies this past week.
