Oliver Anthony’s “Rich Men North Of Richmond” Falls From #1 Spot On Billboard Hot 100, But Another Country Song Takes Its Place

For two weeks, Oliver Anthony‘s viral hit “Rich Men North of Richmond” sat at the #1 spot on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart. When “Rich Men” debuted at #1 on the Hot 100, it made Anthony the first artist “to launch atop the list with no prior chart history in any form.”

The song experienced a 31% increase in streams in its second week. This was another monumental feat. Billboard reports out of 34 songs to debut at #1 on the Hot 100 this decade, “Rich Men” was just the second to experience an increase in streams in its second week.

Moving into the next week, listeners were curious to see if “Rich Men North of Richmond” would hold on to its #1 spot on the Hot 100 for a third week. After all, there’s still a ton of momentum behind the song. As of this writing, the viral performance video on the radiowv YouTube channel has 58 million views and is the #1 top music video on the site.


Billboard released its latest batch of chart data on Monday (September 5). As it turns out, “Rich Men” is no longer the number one song in the U.S. It fell to the sixth spot on the Hot 100

However, the song that took its place at #1 on the chart is actually a country duet.
