Juice WRLD’s name is all over the Billboard charts once again, as his new posthumous album Fighting Demons and the songs featured on its tracklist invade the various tallies the magazine publishes every week. The rapper’s promotional single “Girl of My Dreams” opens at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales list, standing out as the bestselling tune in America.
“Girl of My Dreams” benefits immensely from the inclusion of Suga, one of the seven members of the band BTS. The track sold so well, it not only opens in first place on the Digital Song Sales chart, it outpaces its closest competition by a healthy margin.
In its first frame of availability, “Girl of My Dreams” sold just under 40,250 copies, according to MRC Data (formerly known as Nielsen Music). That’s more than three times as many units as this week’s runner-up, “ABCDEFU” by newcomer Gayle. That tune sold just 12,500 copies, a very small sum for the second-bestselling track in the U.S. at the moment.
“Girl of My Dreams” was so popular in its first week—or perhaps the other tunes that approach the top of the Digital Song Sales chart underperformed by such a wide margin—that Suga and WRLD easily win the frame. WRLD and Suga’s collaboration outsold the tracks that land at Nos. 2, 3 and 4 this week combined. In addition to Gayle’s breakout smash “ABCDEFU,” the powerful pair also beat out Elton John and Dua Lipa’s “Cold Heart” (Pnau Remix) (with 10,400 copies) and country star Walker Hayes’ “Fancy Like” (with 9,000 copies sold).
Both WRLD and Suga collect their first No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart with “Girl of My Dreams,” though they have come close to the summit before. WRLD’s “Come & Go” with Marshmello and Suga’s “Daechwita” (released under the name Agust D) both stalled one rung shy of running the show, peaking at No. 2 for a short time in 2020.
