The song is her second leader on the list, after ‘Bad Guy’ in 2019.
Completing a journey over five months in the making (or around 400 years, given an assist is probably in order for philosopher René Descartes), Billie Eilish’s “Therefore I Am” hits No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Airplay chart (dated April 10).
The song, released on Darkroom/Interscope Records, is Eilish’s second Pop Airplay leader, after “Bad Guy” spent two weeks at No. 1 in August 2019.
“Therefore” reached No. 2 on the all-genre, airplay-, sales- and streaming-based Billboard Hot 100 chart in November. (Pop Airplay reflects weekly plays on over 160 mainstream top 40 radio stations.) It’s her second-highest-charting Hot 100 hit, among four top 10s, after “Bad Guy,” which led the list for a week.
