"Hopes" also becomes the act's first top 40 Radio Songs hit (41-28; 37.9 million, up 27 percent) since "Sins," which reached No. 13. "Hopes" holds at its No. 3 high on Alternative Songs, where it follows Panic's first No. 1, "Say Amen (Saturday Night)," in June, and becomes its first top 10 on Adult Pop Songs (14-9).

"Broken," lovelytheband

"Venom," Eminem
Following the arrival of its official video Oct. 5, the day that the film of the same name premiered nationwide, "Venom" re-enters the Hot 100 at No. 43, up 362 percent to 17.7 million U.S. streams. It first spent a week at No. 49 on the chart dated Sept. 15, when parent album Kamikaze launched at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

"Breathin," Ariana Grande

"Breathin" rises 21-19 on Pop Songs (up 25 percent in plays), while prior Sweetener single "God Is a Woman" keeps at its No. 6 peak (up 3 percent). In an era in which consumers have access to an entire album upon its release, Republic Records is concurrently promoting both songs, instead of following a more traditional model of spacing their radio runs further apart.
