On the latest Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, we talk about all the reasons the Rocket Man stays relevant, from his Apple Music radio show to his insatiable appetite for new music to his endearing habit of shouting out his favorite young artists. Listen here:
Also on the show, we’ve got chart news on Billie Eilish holding atop the Billboard 200 albums chart for a third straight week — leading a top three filled with solo women for the first time in over 10 years — plus new projects from Dan & Shay, Suicideboys and The Killers all debuting in the top 10. And over on the Hot 100, while The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s “Stay” stands still at No. 1 for a third week, Lizzo and Cardi B’s “Rumors” makes a splash, debuting straight into the top 10. Also, we’ve got news about the ill-fated Welcome Back NYC: Homecoming Concert in Central Park over the weekend, and Taylor Swift announcing the vinyl release of Red (Taylor’s Version) with her very first TikTok video.
