It Ain’t Me featuring Selena Gomez is his biggest charting single to date

In the Billboard Hot 100 chart dates May 13. Kygo jumps three places to number 10 with It Ain’t Me featuring Selena Gomez. This mark’s Kygo’s first Top 10 on Hot 100. His debut single Firestone peaked at #92 October 2015.

With the entry to Top 10, Kygo joins an exclusive club of Norwegian artists. Only three other Norwegian artists have charted #10 or higher on Hot 100. In 2014 Nico & Vinz hit #4 with Am I Wrong, Ylvis peaked at #6 with What Does the Fox Say in 2013 and in 1985 A-ha claimed the #1 spot with Take On Me.

Kygo’s entry to Top 10 comes after the official music video was released last week.


Kygo’s debut album Cloud 9 peaked at #11 on Billboard 200 Albums June 2016. The same month he was awarded the inaugural Norwegian Music Export Award.
