The Julia Michaels collab jumps 48-34 on the Hot 100.
JP Saxe rises from No. 3 to No. 1 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart (dated Sept. 5) to become the top emerging act in the U.S. for the first time, thanks to his breakout single "If the World Was Ending," featuring Julia Michaels.
The song jumps from No. 48 to No. 34 on the latest Billboard Hot 100 chart, entering the top 40 for the first time in its 22nd week, with 38.1 million radio audience impressions, 5.6 million U.S. streams and 3,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
"Hopefully everyone is looking for their sense of compassion right now," Saxe told Billboard in the spring as the song resonated among early coronavirus-necessitated social distancing in the U.S. "My hope is that it connects people to the part of themselves that wants to put love first. I've heard stories about the song inspiring someone to reconnect with a family member that maybe they hadn't spoken to in a while. [That] means the world to me."
