Pop Charts: Bo Burnham Sacks “In the Heights,” Olivia Rodrigo With Release of Netflix Special Album


For a hot minute yesterday, the soundtrack to “In the Heights” was number 1 a day ahead of its release.

Not anymore.

Bo Burnham, humorist, writer, director, actor has dropped the soundtrack to his popular Netflix special. “Inside Bo Burnham” has sacked “In the Heights” and Olivia Rodrigo’s “Sour” and gone straight to number 1 on iTunes.

And that’s entertainment.

This thing is hot. Hotter than “In the Heights,” which is not selling that well and not picking up big views on YouTube so far.

“Inside” has also gone to Spotify an album. Stay tuned.
