The performance of Marshmello's high-profile "Silence" collaboration with R&B star Khalid has been anything but silent in its first week, debuting at No. 42 on the Hot 100 and earning the highest ranking debut of any song on the chart on Tuesday (Aug. 22).
To put the above chart achievements in perspective, Marshmello's standout single "Alone," released on May 13, 2016, didn't debut on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart until June 4 where it debuted at No. 29. The record eventually climbed its way onto the Hot 100, but peaked at No. 60.
