Who else makes noteworthy moves on the Hot 100 this week?
Fifth Harmony, "Worth It," featuring Kid Ink
The vocal quintet celebrates its first top 20 Hot 100 hit, as "Worth It," featuring Kid Ink, rises 21-19. While streaming and sales contribute the majority of the song's chart points, airplay for the collaboration with Kid Ink gains by 18 percent to 31 million for the week, according to Nielsen Music.
Rachel Platten, "Fight Song"
The empowerment anthem reaches the Hot 100's top 40, blasting 53-28 as the top Digital Gainer. It hits the Digital Songs top 10 (21-9) -- soaring by 67 percent to 87,000 sold -- after Platten sang it on ABC's Good Morning America May 14. Its official video arrived May 19.
Chris Young, "I'm Comin' Over"
The single starts as the Hot 100's top debut at No. 57 with 71,000 sold. It previews the country vet's fifth album, due this fall. On Hot Country Songs, it launches at No. 8, becoming Young's ninth top 10 (and easily his highest debut).
Maroon 5, "This Summer's Gonna Hurt…"
Maroon 5's seasonally-themed single starts at No. 67 on the Hot 100 with 38,000 sold after less than three days of availability. A full week of sales and the band's performance of the song on the May 19 season finale of NBC's The Voice should further its momentum on next week's chart.
Nick Fradiani, "Beautiful Life"
After winning of the 14th season of Fox's American Idol on May 13, Fradiani enters the Hot 100 at No. 93 with the celebratory "Beautiful Life," which starts with 50,000 sold. The bow matches the No. 93 start (and peak) of 2013 Idol champ Candice Glover's "I Am Beautiful," which began with 48,000 sold. 2014 winner Caleb Johnson missed the Hot 100 with his coronation single "As Long as You Love Me," although it charted on Hot Rock Songs.
