Sia’s ‘Cheap Thrills’ Dethrones Drake’s “One Dance” on Hot 100

Sia has scored her first leader as an artist as “Cheap Thrills” replaces Drake’s “One Dance” after 10 weeks at No. 1.

Sia’s “Cheap Thrills,” featuring Sean Paul, crowns the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Aug. 6), rising 3-1 to become Sia’s first Hot 100 No. 1 as an artist.

The song unseats Drake’s “One Dance,” featuring WizKid and Kyla, which led the Hot 100 for 10 weeks, marking both the longest-leading No. 1 of 2016 and of Drake’s career

“Thrills,” released on Monkey Puzzle/RCA Records, and from Sia’s album This Is Acting, becomes the 1,056th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s history (which dates to Aug. 4, 1958).

While it’s Sia’s first No. 1 as an artist, she previously reigned as a writer, having co-written Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” which led for three weeks in 2012. “Thrills,” meanwhile, was intended to be recorded by Rihanna for her Anti album, but, as fortune would have it, Sia wound up recording it herself.
Still, Drake, and Desiigner, set streaming chart records.
