Debuting at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Kendrick Lamar and Taylour Paige collaboration “We Cry Together” has dropped to No. 97.
Kendrick Lamar has broke Billboard history, but probably not in a way that he intended. His “We Cry Together” collaboration with actress Taylour Paige from new album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers has fallen on the Billboard Hot 100 to No. 97 after debuting at No. 16.
Despite the song dropping 87 spots on the chart, all 18 tracks from Lamar’s fifth studio album are currently on the Billboard Hot 100. However, like “We Cry Together,” lead singles “N95” and “Silent Hill,” have also seen significant drops on the chart, going from No. 3 to No. 17 and No. 7 to No. 49, respectively.
Kendrick Lamar and Taylour Paige’s “We Cry Together” records the biggest single week downward movement in Hot 100 history (81 spots).
