The recently relaunched Hot Trending Songs ranking features nine songs from Her Loss, as users tweeted about the then-upcoming release’s tracklist, which was shared Nov. 3, one day before the album’s arrival.

“Circo Loco” drew a larger amount of virality than the rest of the 16-song tracklist due to a controversial lyric referencing Megan Thee Stallion allegedly having been shot by Tory Lanez in 2020.

The Drake-only track “Middle of the Ocean” follows at No. 2, with album opener “Rich Flex” at No. 4.

JIN’s “The Astronaut,” which debuted on the Nov. 5-dated survey at No. 5, is the week’s top returning song, at a new No. 3 high. Joji’s “1AM Freestyle” rounds out the top five at No. 5, joined by his “Die for You” (No. 12) and “Dissolve” (No. 20), all from his newly released album Smithereens.
