The Oscar winner for Best Original Song is officially the hottest song in America.
Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” soars to #1 on this week’s edition of the Billboard Hot 100.
The Hot 100 ranks songs from all genres based on sales, streams and radio airplay. “Shallow” received substantial sales and streaming gains in the wake of the Oscars ceremony, which included a live performance and said Best Original Song win.
The additional buzz, moreover, spurred increases at pop, hot adult contemporary and adult contemporary radio.
“Shallow” is Gaga’s fourth #1 — and first since “Born This Way” topped the chart in 2011. It is Bradley Cooper’s first.
Featured in “A Star Is Born,” the song dethrones Ariana Grande’s “7 rings.” The Grande hit slips to #2 after five weeks in the pinnacle position.
