Selena Gomez Scores Second Pop Songs No. 1 With 'Same Old Love'
The song follows her first leader, and prior single, "Good for You," to the top of the airplay tally. Plus, Taylor Swift debuts with "Out of the Woods."
Selena Gomez celebrates her second No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs airplay chart (dated Jan. 23), as "Same Old Love" rises 2-1. The single follows her prior hit "Good for You" (featuring A$AP Rocky), which became her first topper on the tally for two weeks beginning Sept. 26. Both songs are from her album Revival, which arrived atop the Oct. 31 Billboard 200 chart and has sold 268,000 to date, according to Nielsen Music.
"This album in particular was such a transition for me," Gomez said of Revival as she accepted her Chart-Topper award at Billboard's Women in Music festivities last month. "I have so much more to prove."
"Same" has reached a high of No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, which measures all-genre airplay, sales and streaming. Check back later today to see where the song ranks on the latest Hot 100, and to find out if Adele's "Hello" can extend its lead on the Hot 100 past 10 weeks, or whether Justin Bieber can take over with "Sorry" after seven straight weeks at No. 2. ("Same" dethrones "Sorry" after three weeks atop Pop Songs.) All charts will update tomorrow (Jan. 12) on Billboard.com.
Meanwhile, more good news for Gomez on Pop Songs: "Same" follow-up "Hands to Myself," the third single from Revival, debuts at No. 29. The track is one of two new entries on the list: Taylor Swift's "Out of the Woods" roars in at No. 28. "Woods" is the sixth Pop Songs hit from Swift's album 1989; with the first five having gone all the way to No. 1, Swift is one leader away from tying Katy Perry's record for the most Pop Songs No. 1s from an album: Perry scored six from Teenage Dream in 2010-12.
