Doja Cat Earns Her First Streaming Songs Chart No. 1 With ‘Paint the Town Red’

Doja Cat snags her first No. 1 on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart with “Paint the Town Red,” which lifts 3-1 on the Oct. 7-dated tally.

It earned 27.5 million official U.S. streams in its eighth week on the survey, a boost of 3%, according to Luminate.

“Paint the Town Red” lands its first week at No. 1 following the release of its parent album, Scarlet, on Sept. 22; the set concurrently bows at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 72,000 equivalent album units earned, as previously reported.

Prior to “Paint the Town Red,” Doja Cat’s best rank on Streaming Songs had been via “Kiss Me More” featuring SZA, which peaked at No. 2 in May 2021. She first appeared on the ranking in 2019 when “Juicy,” co-billed with Tyga, peaked at No. 40 that November.

The new track concurrently returns to No. 1 on R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs, spending a fifth week atop the survey; it’s Doja Cat’s third ruler there, following “You Right” (with The Weeknd) and “Ain’t Shit,” both in 2021. It also remains atop Rap Streaming Songs for a sixth week, her second following “Ain’t Shit.”

As previously reported, “Paint the Town Red” returns to No. 1 on the multimetric Billboard Hot 100. In addition to its stream count, the song earned 56.2 million radio audience impressions and 6,000 downloads in the Sept. 25-Oct. 1 tracking period. The latter amount was enough for the song to spend a second straight week at No. 1 on Digital Song Sales.
