News Room

Olivia Rodrigo is set to release her highly anticipated new single, “Vampire,” on Friday, June 30, marking the beginning of the second chapter of her music career. While the song hasn’t been heard yet, it is already generating immense excitement and has the potential to become a major hit. In fact, its release could make history for the Grammy-winning artist.

Rodrigo has a large and eager fan base, and “Vampire” is expected to receive significant promotion upon its release. All that attention and build-up are increasing the track’s chances of starting at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart. The young star has already proven that achieving a No. 1 debut is well within her reach, as demonstrated by her previous hits.

If “Vampire” does open in the top spot, it will mark Rodrigo’s third No. 1 debut on the chart. When the tune reaches No. 1 on the Hot 100 upon its debut, Rodrigo will tie Mariah Carey on the list of women with the most instant champions on the tally, matching her in third place with a third winner.

Currently, Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande hold the record for the most No. 1 Hot 100 debuts among female artists, with five each.

Rodrigo’s music career took off with a bang when her debut single, “Drivers License,” debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, instantly capturing the public’s adoration. One of her follow-up singles, “Good 4 U,” also opened atop the chart, solidifying her status as a true star and dispelling any notions of her being a one-hit wonder. Her album Sour became the first in history to produce two No. 1 debuts on the Hot 100. Now, “Vampire” has the potential to follow the same successful trajectory.

In terms of overall records, Drake holds the lead with seven songs debuting at No. 1 on the Hot 100. Swift and Grande are tied for second place with five instant conquerors, while BTS shares the same spot. Justin Bieber ranks fifth with four No. 1 starts on the Hot 100.
