Following a very abbreviated first week of tracking, Ariana Grande’s “The Light Is Coming (featuring Nicki Minaj)” debuted on last week’s Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100.

Following its first full week, it earns a spot on this week’s edition of the actual Hot 100.

“The Light Is Coming” takes #95 on this week’s chart.

An instant gratification from Grande’s forthcoming “Sweetener,” the song has not been a monster performer by Grande standards. It nonetheless attracted enough interest across the music video, audio stream and digital download fronts to earn a spot on this week’s chart.

“The Light Is Coming” is Ariana Grande’s 27th career Hot 100 entry. It is the 92nd such hit for Nicki Minaj.
