‘Shallow’ from ‘A Star Is Born’ is everywhere. After winning Best Original Song award this year, the song has now earned the top spot on coveted Billboard Hot 100 list. 

It was resting at 21 and after Oscars win, the song jumped to no. 1. 

Some of this can also be attributed to a scintillating performance that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper gave on the stage. They not only sang the song but Gaga also played the piano as they looked romantic and much-in-love. It also spiked rumours of them dating, to which Gaga put an end by saying “fooled ya" at Jimmy Fallon’s show post the win. See Oscars 2019 winners list.

Meanwhile, ‘Shallow’ is Gaga's fourth Hot 100 No. 1 and first since 2011. It is Cooper's first, dethroning Ariana Grande's ‘7 Rings’ after five weeks atop the chart.

‘Shallow’ is the top-selling song of the week and ‘Rings’ is the most-streamed, Halsey's former Hot 100 No. 1 ‘Without Me,’ is now at no. 3.
