Who else makes notable Hot 100 chart moves this week?
Meghan Trainor, "No"
The sassy song debuts at No. 11 on the Hot 100. The lead single from Trainor's sophomore full-length Thank You, due May 13, opens at No. 2 on Digital Songs (113,000 sold in its first week, according to Nielsen Music), following its March 4 release. "No" also blasts in at No. 21 on Radio Songs (46 million), marking the highest debut on the chart since Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" rocketed in at No. 6 in 2011. "No" adds 3.3 million first-week domestic streams.
Shakira, "Try Everything"
Following the No. 1 box office premiere of the animated film Zootopia, Shakira (who's among the cast's many stars lending their voices for roles), the song from the soundtrack debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 66. It starts on Digital Songs at No. 22 (33,000, up 921 percent) and drew 3 million U.S. streams (a 1,272 percent blast) after the release of its official video March 3. Sia co-wrote the song with Norwegian duo Stargate, which also produced it.
Taylor Swift, "New Romantics"
The seventh radio single from 1989 re-enters the Hot 100 at No. 73. It first spent a week on the chart at No. 71 a year ago this month, following the wide-release of the deluxe version of 1989, which had previously been available exclusively at Target. The track re-enters Digital Songs at No. 33 (24,000, up 95 percent), while bulleting at Nos. 14 and 21, respectively, on the Adult Pop Songs and Pop Songs radio airplay charts.
Justin Bieber, "Company"
Bieber likewise makes a return to the Hot 100, at No. 89, with the follow-up from Purpose to his first three No. 1s on the chart ("What Do You Mean?," "Sorry" and "Love Yourself"). "Company" previously peaked at No. 53 upon its debut in December as one of Bieber's record-shattering 17 concurrent Hot 100 entries. The track pushes 27-25 in its second week on Pop Songs.
Zendaya, "Something New," featuring Chris Brown
The collab enters the Hot 100 at No. 96 and lifts 32-31 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, powered in part by its 16-13 jump on the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart. It also ascends 29-28 on Pop Songs.
Singer/actress Zendaya makes her third Hot 100 appearance, having reached a high of No. 40 with her prior entry, "Replay," in January 2014. She's also on the high-profile single "This Is for My Girls," the soundtrack to First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn and #62MillionGirls initiatives. The song topped the real-time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 Wednesday (March 16), becoming the most shared and discussed track on the platform hours after its midnight ET release.
