“Popular” (also featuring Playboi Carti) from the new HBO series The Idol lands at No. 43 on this week’s Hot 100 — Madonna’s highest-charting song in more than a decade, since “Give Me All Your Luvin,” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., peaked at No. 10 in February 2012. Also thanks to “Popular,” Madonna now joins Cher as the only women to have debuted on the Hot 100 in five separate decades.
But that’s not Madonna’s only new music. On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, we’re also talking about the Queen of Pop’s club-friendly collab with Sam Smith on “Vulgar.” Plus, Madonna is all over Christine and the Queens’ new album Paranoia, Angels, True Love too. What is it like for Keith and the rest of Madonna’s fans to get all this new material in the year 2023? Listen below.
Also on the show, we’re talking about the major Glee moments from Sunday’s Tony Awards, including Alex Newell (who played Unique Adams on the show) winning best performance by an actor in a featured role in a musical for Shucked and Lea Michele closing the show with “Don’t Rain on My Parade” from Funny Girl. Plus, we’ve got chart news on how there are a whopping six debuts in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 albums chart — and it’s the first time that’s happened in more than two and a half years. And over on the Hot 100 songs chart, Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night” hits double-digit territory at No. 1, as the song spends a 10th week in charge.
