Hot 100 News: Jason Derulo Keeps Florida Georgia Line on a 'Roll'

Could Florida Georgia Line's "This Is How We Roll" become a crossover smash like the duo's "Cruise," by way of yet another remix fea­turing an unlikely collaborator? "Roll," originally featuring Luke Bryan, hits a new Billboard Hot 100 peak, jumping 26-15. On Digital Songs, it also reaches a new best rank, roaring 23-7 with 130,000 downloads sold, up 130 percent, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Behind the surge? A recently released remix with Jason Derulo, which accounts for 55 percent of its sales in the week ending June 8. A performance of "Roll" by FGL, Bryan and Derulo as part of a medley with ZZ Top to open the June 4 CMT Music Awards couldn't have hurt either. In 2013, FGL remixed "Cruise" with Nelly to similar success, helping it reach No. 4 on the Hot 100.

Meanwhile, Sam Smith (see story, page 48) scores his first Hot 100 top 10, as "Stay With Me" moves 19-10, fueled by a 10-3 blast up Digital Songs (167,000 sold, a 62 percent hike). "I am genuinely gobsmacked," said Smith upon hearing the news. "I keep asking my team if they made a mistake."
