Adult Pop Songs
*** No. 1 (1 week)*** "Stay With Me" Sam Smith
Another week, another chart topped for Sam Smith's "Stay With Me," as the ballad lifts 2-1 on Billboard's Adult Pop Songs airplay chart. It's the latest conquest for the track, which leads Pop Songs for a second week and Adult Contemporary for a third week. Notably, topping the three charts simultaneously is a rare achievement, one which puts "Stay" in lofty company. The last song to lead Pop Songs, Adult Pop Songs and AC at the same time? Fellow British singer/songwriter Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" the weeks of July 2 and 9, 2011. ("Deep" went on to become the Billboard Hot 100's top song of 2011.) Only one other hit has so tripled up at No. 1 (in the 18 years in which all three charts have coexisted): Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me," for five weeks in 1996.
