The song previously led Country Airplay.
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.
