ARK Music Factory has done it again! The company behind Rebecca Black and her “Friday” phenomenon has another viral hit on its hands in Alison Gold’s “Chinese Food.”
The 12-year-old singer’s pop song love letter to Chinese dishes debuts at No. 29 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart and at No. 5 on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart. The latter makes it the week’s highest new entry.
Gold has YouTube viewers to thank for the success of her ode to tasty comfort food — her impressive debut on the Hot 100 is due largely in part to the nearly 5 million U.S. streams the video has received on YouTube since being uploaded on Oct. 14. The track has additionally sold 1,000 downloads as of Oct. 20.
