Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” Charts on Hot 100 For the First TimeThe original 1984 version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” has entered the Hot 100 for the first time, landing at No. 59 this week, Billboard reports. Over the last week, “Hallelujah” was downloaded 33,000 times and streamed 3.8 million times, marking a 279 percent increase, and landing it at No. 12 on the Digital Song Sales chart.
