Sabrina Carpenter’s rise to the top of the charts has been a joy to watch, and she finally managed to hit No. 1. Her latest single “Please Please Please” topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart during its second week, becoming her first song to do so.

Carpenter scored her best streaming week for a song with 50.9 million official streams, but 3.2 million radio airplay audience impressions and 7,000 sold copies also helped “Please Please Please” rise to No. 1. It also topped Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart for its second week in a row.

The success of “Please Please Please” can be credited to several versions that Carpenter released to help it rise through the ranks. The original song hit the shelves on June 6, and it was quickly followed by acoustic, a cappella, instrumental, sped-up, and slowed-down versions.

“Please Please Please” replaces Post Malone’s “I Had Some Help” ft. Morgan Wallen at No. 1, while the rest of the top five includes Shaboozey’s “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” at No. 3, Carpenter’s own “Espresso” at No. 4, and Tommy Richman’s “Million Dollar Baby” at No. 5.

“Please Please Please” will be featured on Carpenter’s upcoming album Short n’ Sweet, set to be released via Island Records on August 23.
