According to Nielsen Music, the track earned 65.3 million USA streams and 78,000 downloads, enough to also secure the top spot on the Digital Song Sales chart. On the download side of things, "This Is America" wrapped up the week with 78,000 in sales.

A comedian has been slammed for "whitewashing" Donald Glover's "This is America" video, which depicts violence and prejudice against black people. He also stars as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming "Star Wars" film, "Solo: A Star Wars Story".
