As the song’s early debut foretold, radio has latched on to “Door” with haste. In just its second week on the chart (and first full week of radio play), the single rises 16-10 on the
chart and secures the fastest flight into the top 10 since Maxwell also required two frames to reach the tier with “Lake by the Ocean” in 2016.

The explosion, too, puts the artists’ in rare company. Since 2014, the only songs to reach as high as No. 16 in their second week on the 50-position chart have included one or more of Beyonce, Drake or Rihanna.

The “Door” debut comes on the heels of Silk Sonic’s maiden live performance at the 63rd annual Grammy Awards on March 14.
