Normani & Khalid’s duet Love Lies rises to #1 on Billboard Pop Songs chart; hits multiple milestones


Dennis Leupold”Love Lies,” Normani and Khalid‘s duet from the soundtrack of the film Love, Simon, has now reached #1 on Billboard’s Pop Songs chart.  In doing so, it’s set a number of notable chart milestones.

First, the double platinum “Love Lies” is the first song from a soundtrack to top the Pop Songs chart since 2016, when Justin Timberlake‘s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!,” from Trolls, was #1 for three weeks.

Next, Fifth Harmony becomes the third group to have at least two members reach #1 on the Pop Songs chart. 

One Direction has three members who’ve done it: ZAYN, Niall Horan, and Liam Payne. Destiny’s Child has two members who’ve done it: Beyonce and Kelly Rowland. Normani is the second member of Fifth Harmony to top the Pop Songs chart, following Camila Cabello.

The song also sets the record for the longest trip to #1 for a duet. It took Normani and Khalid 24 weeks to reach the summit of the Pop Songs chart. The previous record of 17 weeks was set by Major Lazer and DJ Snake‘s “Lean On,” featuring MO, in 2015.

Normani, who’s working on her debut solo album, can also be heard — along with Kehlani — on a remix of the Jessie Reyez song “Body Count.”
