BoyWithUke may need new friends, but he’s got a whole lot of listeners.

The mysterious, masked artist’s viral hit “Toxic” has officially hit #1 on Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay chart, making it the first BoyWithUke track to reach the top of any Billboard song ranking.

All told, “Toxic” took 31 weeks between its debut on Alternative Airplay and its ascension to #1. That ties Phoenix‘s “1901” for the sixth-longest journey to #1 on Alternative Airplay.

“Toxic” was first released in October 2021, and its lyric video has over 57 million views on YouTube. It’s included on BoyWithUke’s new album, Serotonin Dreams, which was released in May.
