Maren Morris announced on Instagram that she had the number one song in the country, and now it’s official. “Billboard” reveals that Maren’s “Girl” has topped the Country Airplay chart this week, making it her third number one single.
“I am so proud that ‘Girl’ is my third ‘Billboard’ number one,” Maren shares. “The title of the song alone feels like poetic justice breaking this year-and- a-half streak of a woman not having a number one on [Country Airplay], so let’s be hopeful we never see that dry spell again.”
The dry spell Maren is referring to the last female number one from Kelsea Ballerini, who topped the Country Airplay chart with “Legends” back in February, 2018.
