• Comic rapper Lil Dicky celebrated his first top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, as "Freaky Friday," featuring Chris Brown,
debuted at No. 9 on the chart (dated March 31, 2018).
• The song surged after the March 15 release of its official video. Its premise borrows from the body-switching movie Freaky Friday, first starring Barbara Harris and Jodie Foster in 1976 and remade with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan in 2003.
• "Friday" crowns the Comedy Digital Track Sales chart and enters the all-genre Digital Song Sales chart at No. 3 with 38,000 downloads sold, and bows on Streaming Songs at No. 4 with 26.5 million U.S. streams, in the week ending March 22, according to Nielsen Music.
• Billboard caught up with Lil Dicky, the 30-year-old born David Burd, and who had previously charted one No. 71-peaking song on the Hot 100, in 2015, about the origin of "Friday" and its instant chart success, as well as the validation that it's providing him. Billboard asked "What's your reaction to "Freaky Friday" debuting on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 9, becoming your first top 10 hit?"
• Lil Dicky said "Utter and sheer happiness. It's a dream come true. I've always hoped I could do it, but until you see it officially happening, you deep down wonder if it will in fact ever happen. Especially with my music, because so much of it is comedic in nature, you just never know how far it can go. But, in looking at this debut, it motivates me even more to keep going as hard as I can."
