Sidhu Moose Wala Spends Second Week on Canadian Hot 100 With "Drippy"

The posthumous single from the influential Punjabi artist, featuring MXRCI and AR Paisley, is charting again this week. Beyoncé also debuts with Canadian-penned single, "Texas Hold Em."

After a debut in the top ten last week, his highest chart performance ever, the late Punjabi musician Sidhu Moose Wala spends a second week on the charts with "Drippy." The posthumous single, produced by MXRCI and featuring Canadian artist AR Paisley, lands at No. 56 on the Canadian Hot 100 this week. The song has also amassed nearly 25 million YouTube views in two weeks and is making international news.

BBC reported on the song's chart impact this week, speaking with Billboard Canada editor Richard Trapunski about the song's high debut, and how it indicates the broader momentum of Punjabi music in Canada, as well as the special place that Sidhu Moose Wala holds within that growth.
