Halsey Holds Top Two Spots on Pop Songs Chart With 'Without Me' & 'Eastside'

Brian Ziff


As "Eastide," with Benny Blanco & Khalid, rises to No. 2, Halsey earns the first such double in nearly five years.

Halsey becomes the first artist to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart in nearly five years, as "Without Me" spends a fourth week at No. 1 and "Eastside," with Benny Blanco and Khalid, rises 3-2 (on the survey dated Feb. 23).  

Halsey is the first act to claim the top two on Pop Songs in a week since Iggy Azalea in 2014. In the chart's 26-year history, Halsey is just the fifth artist to achieve the feat.
