It's Ariana Grande's 'Time' on Top Twitter Tracks
Pop divas reign this week as Grande vaults to No. 1 on Top Twitter Tracks, while Madonna's Grammy buzz boosts her to a No. 11 re-entry.
Ariana Grande leaps 11 spots to No. 1 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks with "One Last Time," the new single from her sophomore album, My Everything. The song's surge comes from a flurry of recent activity beginning with the track's live debut on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Feb. 1. Two days later on YouTube, Grande teased the song's arrangement for her upcoming Honeymoon Tour, spurring "Time" to hit No. 1 on the real-time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140.
Ahead of the tune's proper music video release, Grande launched a hashtag countdown campaign and offered the "Time" lyric video (Feb. 6), which gathered more than 455,000 worldwide plays for the week ending Feb. 8, according to Next Big Sound.
Madonna Lives Again: Madonna re-enters Top Tracks at a new peak of No. 11 with "Living for Love." The track returns after its music video premiered on Snapchat on Feb. 5. The clip reached Vevo on YouTube the following day and collected more than 405,000 global plays for the week ending Feb. 8. "Love" also rebounds thanks to high interest surrounding its live performance debut on the Grammy Awards (Feb. 8). After the telecast, the song vaulted to No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140.
Simpson's 'Flower' Blooms: Cody Simpson springs onto Top Tracks at No. 12 with "Flower," his first solo release since departing Atlantic Records last August. The Australian teen released the track via Bananabeat Records on Feb. 4, triggering a same-day ascent to No. 1 on the Trending 140. "Flower" reaped more rewards after Simpson performed it acoustically on ABC's Good Morning America on Feb. 6, leading to its strong arrival. Fun fact: the single's cover art was shot by Miley Cyrus.
Avril Offers 'What You Like': Meanwhile, Avril Lavigne earns her initial Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks appearance as "Give You What You Like" enters at No. 19.
