Gabby Barrett's "I Hope," featuring Charlie Puth, takes over atop Billboard's Adult Pop Songs chart (dated Oct. 24).

The song marks the first leader on the list for Barrett and the third for Puth, following his own "One Call Away" (for two weeks in April-May 2016) and "Attention" (one week, October 2017).

"I Hope" led the Country Airplay chart for a week in April and, aided by its Puth remix released that month, has crossed to adult and pop radio. As it crowns Adult Pop Songs, it bullets at No. 7 on Pop Songs and No. 8 on Adult Contemporary.

On the all-genre Radio Songs chart, "I Hope" holds at its No. 2 high, up 2% to 74.4 million audience impressions in the week ending Oct. 18, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

On the all-genre airplay-, streaming- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100, "I Hope" is steady at its No. 8 best.

Barrett, who placed third on ABC's American Idol in 2018, adds a 13th week at No. 1 on Hot Country Songs (which uses the same methodology as the Hot 100) with "I Hope." Meanwhile, follow-up single "The Good Ones" lifts 35-34 on Country Airplay, up 11% to 3 million in audience.
