Beyoncé‘s “Break My Soul” bounds to No. 1, from No. 6, on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart

performs during the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 at FNB Stadium on December 2, 2018 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Break My Soul” Becomes Beyoncé’s First Solo #1 Hit Since 2008. The song marks the superstar’s eighth solo leader on the list. The track, which debuted at No. 15 six weeks earlier, is from her new LP Renaissance, which launches as her seventh No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Yesterday Beyoncé’s Renaissance debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 with the biggest sales week of 2022 by a woman (332,000 equivalent album units including 190,000 in sales, to be exact).

This is wild to think about, but until today Beyoncé hasn’t topped the Hot 100 by herself since “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” in 2008. In the interim, Bey has released culture-shifting albums and landed at #1 as a featured guest on songs by Ed Sheeran and Megan Thee Stallion.

Break My Soul,” released on Parkwood/Columbia Records, becomes the 1,140th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 64-year history.

Counting her time in Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé’s span of appearing at #1 on the Hot 100 now stretches over 23 years and three weeks
