Thanks to the release of the “Black Panther” movie, the debut of the official music video and an increase in support at radio, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future & James Blake’s “King’s Dead” makes a big jump on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.
The song, which was #38 last week, soars to #23 on this week’s chart.
In conjunction with its Hot 100 gain, “King’s Dead” debuts at #19 on the Streaming Songs subchart. It enters Digital Songs at #42.
While it does not appear on the all-format Radio Songs chart, “King’s Dead” does hold Top 40 positions on the rhythmic and urban airplay listings.
