  • Tracy Chapman just became the first black woman to have a song she wrote alone go #1 on the country charts thanks to the Luke Combs cover. Chapman told Billboard that she never expected to be in the country charts but that she’s “honored to be there.” The song also sits at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, four positions higher than the original version of the song. Chapman says she’s “happy for Luke and his success and grateful that new fans have found and embraced ‘Fast Car.’”
