Benson Boone Reaches No. 1 on Streaming Songs Chart With ‘Beautiful Things’

Benson Boone reaches No. 1 for the first time on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart, as “Beautiful Things” lifts 5-1 on the Feb. 17-dated ranking.

In the Feb. 2-8 tracking week, “Beautiful Things” earned 22.8 million official U.S. streams, according to Luminate. That’s up 23% from the previous frame (Jan. 26-Feb. 1), when the song accumulated 18.5 million streams.

The song premiered at No. 5 on the Feb. 3-dated survey via 15.7 million streams, meaning the song has gained by at least 18% in streams in every week since its release so far (it debuted on streaming platforms on Jan. 18 following a multi-week tease on TikTok).

Boone’s No. 1 on Streaming Songs makes him the first act to snag their first ruler on the chart as a lead artist since Doja Cat, whose “Paint the Town Red” reigned in October 2023.

As Doja Cat had a multi-song history on Streaming Songs prior to her first No. 1, unlike Boone, Boone becomes the first to top the list in their first appearance as a lead act since Oliver Anthony Music, with “Rich Men North of Richmond,” in September 2023.

The other claim to fame for Boone is that “Beautiful Things” is the first song of 2024 to rise to No. 1 for its first reign on Streaming Songs rather than debuting there. The last song to do that was Jack Harlow’s “Lovin on Me,” which reached the top in its second week (Dec. 2, 2023) after debuting at No. 2 the week before.

Concurrently, as previously reported, “Beautiful Things” jumps 8-3 on the multi-metric Billboard Hot 100. In addition to its streams, the song earned 3.4 million radio audience impressions, (up 321%) and 9,000 downloads (up 15%). Early airplay success has been courtesy of the Adult Pop Airplay (No. 28) and Pop Airplay (No. 32) charts.

The tune also tops the Global 200 for the first time.

“Beautiful Things” is currently a standalone single for Boone, who’s released two EPs, Walk Me Home… (2022) and Pulse (2023).
