Jordan Davis banks his fourth leader on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, as “What My World Spins Around” rises from No. 3 to No. 1 on the list dated Jan. 21. In the tracking week ending Jan. 12, the song increased by 14% to 29.9 million impressions, according to Luminate.
Davis co-wrote “World” with Matt Dragstrem and Ryan Hurd. It’s the second single from Davis’ sophomore album, Bluebird Days, due Feb. 17.
“It feels like yesterday I was praying for that first one to ring the bell,” Davis tells Billboard of his latest Country Airplay coronation. “Huge thanks to my friends at country radio and [the MCA Nashville] promo team for believing in this song. When Ryan, Matt and I wrote this song, there was always that little feeling in the back of my mind that this one might be special. Pumped that it’s connected the way it has.”
On the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Hot Country Songs survey, “World” hit a No. 8 high in December.
For the 34-year-old Davis, from Shreveport, La., “World” follows “Buy Dirt” (featuring Luke Bryan), which dominated Country Airplay for two weeks beginning on the ranking dated Jan. 29, 2022. (The song marked Bryan’s 26th No. 1.) “Dirt” controlled Hot Country Songs for four weeks beginning the same frame, awarding Davis his first No. 1 (and Bryan his most recent of 12 leaders).
Davis notched his first No. 1 on Country Airplay with his launch release “Singles You Up,” which led for a week and reached No. 4 on Hot Country Songs in April 2018. “Take It From Me” followed, peaking at No. 2 on Country Airplay and No. 4 on Hot Country Songs in March 2019; “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot” became the singer-songwriter’s second Country Airplay leader, for a week in April 2020, and hit No. 6 on Hot Country Songs that month; and “Almost Maybes” rose to No. 5 on Country Airplay and No. 7 on Hot Country Songs in July 2021.
