Ghost’s monitor “Mary on a Cross” has made the Billboard Sizzling 100 after going viral on TikTok.
The track was the B-side on the Seven Inches of Satanic Panic launch in 2019. It’s unlikely debut on the newest version of Billboard’s general track chart comes thanks largely to six million US streams through the week of September ninth via 15. This follows the track’s Prime 40 placement within the UK final month.
It began when a TikTok consumer took a slowed-down model of the track to soundtrack a clip from Stranger Issues. Now the hashtag #maryonthecross has roughly 800 million views and the track has been utilized in over 10,000 TikTok movies.
Ghost themselves even launched an official slowed-down “chopped and screwed” model with added reverb. It hit digital platforms on August twenty sixth.
Whereas “Mary on a Cross” is the primary Ghost track to interrupt into the Billboard Sizzling 100, the band has appeared quite a few instances on the album chart. Six Ghost LPs/EPs have charted on the Billboard 200: Infestissumam (No. 28, 2013); If You Have Ghost EP (No. 87, 2013); Meliora (No. 8, 2015); Popestar EP (No. 16, 2016); Prequelle (No. 3, 2018); and IMPERA (No. 2, 2022).
The TikTok fame rounds out a robust 2022 marketing campaign for Ghost, who launched their extremely anticipated fifth studio album IMPERA again in March. The Swedish band is at present wrapping up a North American tour, which Heavy Consequence caught when it stopped at New York’s UBS Area with Mastodon and Spiritbox. Solely two dates stay, with tickets obtainable right here.
