Kid Cudi breaks new record for shortest song to enter Hot 100
The arrival of Kid Cudi‘s Man on the Moon trilogy conclusion dictated all eyes on the long-awaited record. Now, the prophetic finale claims its reward as Man on the Moon III: The Chosen breaks a new chart record.
Kudi’s recent achievement can be attributed to album opener “Beautiful Trip,” which locks in the shortest song of all time to enter the Billboard Hot 100. Overtaking the previous titleholder, “PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen),” which peaked at No. 77 in October 2016, Kudi’s track runs eight seconds shorter than its predecessor at just 37 seconds, seeing its debut at No. 100.
The Chosen has already made its mark on the charts, having opened at No. 2 and spawning ten total entries on the Hot 100 including “Tequila Shots” at No. 41, “She Knows This” at No. 49, “Show Out” with Skepta and Pop Smoke at No. 54, and more.
