Doja Cat hits the Billboard Rock charts for the first time with her cover of Hole’s “Celebrity Skin”

Doja Cat has appeared on several genre-specific Billboard charts during her meteoric journey to stardom. She’s seen her songs rise to ranks in genres like pop, rap, hip-hop, R&B, and even Latin, and now she can add her latest track to that ever-growing list.

Cat’s new single “Celebrity Skin” is appearing on a variety of Billboard charts this week after completing her first full tracking session, helping the lady who created the cover of one of Hole’s best singles reach new heights. .

The main Billboard chart that deals with songs classified as rock in any form is the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart, and Cat not only makes it to the chart for the first time, but also has the most notable debut of the week. . “Celebrity Skin” debuts at No. 18, marking the frame’s highest debut.

On the Hot Alternative Songs list, the song did slightly better, which isn’t entirely surprising. The chart is a somewhat more specialized list that often only includes alternative music. It’s not unusual for most, if not all, of the 25 items on the Hot Alternative Songs list to also appear on the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs list.

“Celebrity Skin” is at No. 16 on the alternate chart only.

While “Celebrity Skin” didn’t do well enough in its first frame to qualify for the All Genre Digital Song Sales chart, it did make the Alternate Digital Song Sales chart, which tracks precisely what the title implied. Cat’s new single debuted at No. 21 on the 25-spot chart, earning the frame’s third-highest launch (out of four newcomers).

Cat covered the song Hole for a Taco Bell commercial that aired during the Super Bowl in 2022. The song quickly gained traction on streaming platforms, digital stores and social media, propelling it to the top of many Billboard charts.

Originally released in 1998 as a single from the album of the same title, Hole’s “Celebrity Skin” has charted on a number of Billboard charts over the years, but Cat’s performance topped a few. . While the original peaked at number 12 on the Alternative Digital Song Sales chart, it never made it to the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs or Hot Alternative Songs charts. This is certainly due to the fact that these lists were compiled at the height of the cut.

Its cover was even praised by Courtney Love.

After the cover was featured in a Super Bowl commercial for Taco Bell, Love can’t help but praise the singer on her social media.

“Totally enjoyable,” Love wrote on Instagram of the cover. “Doja Cat, I like this and I love you.”
