How High Can Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s ‘Murder on the Dancefloor’ Shimmy Up the Hot 100 After ‘Saltburn’ Bump?

Mr. Nimbus | 01/09/2024

Just how high can Sophie Ellis-Bextor dance up the Billboard Hot 100 with her resurgent, Saltburn-powered hit “Murder on the Dancefloor,” 20 years after the song’s initial release?

On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith are talking about the buzzy early-aughts song, which this week debuts at No. 98 on the Hot 100 and rebounds to No. 8 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart (on which it peaked at No. 2 back in 2001). The “Murder” renaissance is all thanks to a scene in the Emerald Fennell-directed film in which star Barry Keoghan dances naked to the nu-disco track around the title English estate.

Plus, we’ve got chart news on how the holidays are fully gone from the Billboard 200 albums chart and the Hot 100 songs chart, as things get back to normal post-Christmas. And with that, two familiar faces return to the top slot on each list: Taylor Swift on the Billboard 200 and Jack Harlow on the Hot 100. Plus, Tate McRae’s “Greedy,” Tyla’s “Water” and Doja Cat’s “Agora Hills” all hit new highs in the top 10.
