Bonnie Raitt's new single "Used to Rule the World" is already a smash, tearing up radio nationwide. The "witty, funky" (USA Today) song is the second hit single from 'Slipstream' (Redwing Records), Raitt's best-selling, highest-debuting album in nearly two decades, totaling six-figure sales numbers only a month after its #6 Billboard 200 entry.
