Selena Gomez Ends Miley Cyrus’ Historic Winning Streak

News Room

Despite the fact that she hasn’t released any new music in months, Selena Gomez has achieved a remarkable milestone in her career. Despite the slow climb, her collaboration with Rema, the catchy single “Calm Down,” has climbed to the No. 1 position on the Radio Songs chart, marking Gomez’s first chart-topper on that specific and important ranking.

Billboard’s Radio Songs chart ranks tunes based on their reach and popularity on radio stations across the United States. “Calm Down” climbs from its previous position at No. 2 to claim the coveted top spot, indicating its continued growing popularity among listeners.

Although “Calm Down” is originally performed by Nigerian musician Rema, Gomez’s involvement in the track significantly contributed to its rise. By transforming the solo cut into a duet, Gomez brought a fresh perspective to the song, appealing to a wider audience and leveraging her immense popularity to amplify its reach.

Gomez and Rema’s ascent to No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart has dethroned Miley Cyrus, who had been dominating the tally with her single “Flowers” for an incredible 18 weeks. Cyrus’ achievement on the chart was historic, solidifying her position as one of the longest-running leaders of all time on the radio list.

The success of “Calm Down” not only marks Gomez’s first No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart but also Rema’s first chart-topping track. While Rema has only one notable chart win to his credit, Gomez has come close to conquering this tally before, with her song “Same Old Love” peaking at No. 3 eight years ago. Throughout her career, Gomez has amassed nine top 10 hits.

In addition to its rise on the Radio Songs chart, “Calm Down” also returns to its peak position of No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart. Although the track faced tough competition from other popular hits that prevented it from claiming the top spot, its domination on U.S. radio airwaves could potentially lead to further ascent. However, it will need to surpass the current No. 1 hit, Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night,” and the second-ranking song, Luke Combs’ “Fast Car,” which won’t be easy.
