Life Selena Gomez scores number 1 hit for the first time in 10 years By weekster Posted on November 8, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Selena Gomez (27) had to wait a long time for it, but ten years after her first listing in the Billboard Hot 100, she finally achieved first place. Her new single Lose You To Love Me rises this week from 15 to 1 in the most important American hit list and beats Lewis Capaldi, who took the lead last week. “This means everything to me” So far, Selena had never reached higher than fifth place. She achieved that in 2015 and 2016 with Good For You and Same Old Love respectively. The news itself comes as a surprise to Selena. “What? OMG !!”, writes the 27-year-old singer in her Instagram Stories. “This means everything to me.” The last time an artist had to wait so long for his first number 1 hit was in 2017 when Daddy Yankee reached the top after twelve years and nine months. The record is set at 30 years, set by Santana. The legendary musician was able to celebrate a party for the first time in October 1999 when his single Smooth landed at number 1.
