Making good on an election-related promise, Phoebe Bridgers released a cover of Goo Goo Dolls’ “Iris” on November 13.
Also featuring Maggie Rogers, the cover was available to purchase as a one-day exclusive on Bandcamp. The formal artist billing was “Phoebe & Maggie,” and proceeds benefited Fair Fight.
The effort proved tremendously successful; despite its single-day of availability, “Iris” ranked as America’s best-selling song for the November 13-19 tracking period. It also generated enough activity to land on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song starts at #57 on this week’s edition of the all-genre chart, which also accounts for streaming and radio activity. “Iris” is the first Hot 100 entry for either artist.
