The smash reached #1 mid-Friday morning, seizing the throne from Taylor Swift’s “The Archer.” The new Swift tune is #2 as of press time.

The ascent to #1 on iTunes comes as “Truth Hurts” remains a streaming sensation. It is also succeeding at multiple formats of radio.

Other songs in the iTunes Top 5 include Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus),” Blanco Brown’s “The Git Up,” and Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s “Señorita.”
