Making good on projections, Travi$ Scott’s “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM” debuts at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

“HIGHEST” seizes the throne from Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts,” which spent the past six weeks as the top song in America.

The Travi$ Scott tune showed strength in streams, sales and radio activity — the three factors that define placement on the Hot 100. It fared particularly well on the streaming front, earning #1 on Billboard Streaming Songs.

“HIGHEST” follows “SICKO MODE” in becoming the artist’s second career chart-topper.

“Truth Hurts” falls one place to #2, while Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello’s “Señorita” drops one position to #3. Dan + Shay & Justin Bieber’s “10,000 Hours” flies in at #4, while Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” drops two spots to #5.
