Following Wednesday morning’s official release, Carrie Underwood’s “Cry Pretty” rocketed to upper reaches of the US iTunes sales chart.

By noon, it had leapfrogged all but one song: Drake’s recently released “Nice For What.”

By Wednesday evening, it had leapfrogged that one as well. “Cry Pretty” is #1 on the all-genre chart as of press time at 6:53PM ET.

“Nice For What” is currently #2, while Cardi B, J Balvin & Bad Bunny’s “I Like It” is #3.

Bebe Rexha’s “Meant To Be (featuring Florida Georgia Line)” (#4) and Imagine Dragons’ “Whatever It Takes” (#5) complete the Top 5.

“Cry Pretty” is the lead single from Underwood’s forthcoming album. It received immediate support at radio today — and will receive more high-profile exposure when Underwood performs at Sunday’s ACM Awards ceremony.
