Hot 100 Chart Moves: Demi Lovato's 'Summer' Heats Up
Lovato's latest leaps 36-28. Plus, moves for Fetty Wap, Fall Out Boy, Steven Tyler & Meghan Trainor.
As previously reported, OMI's "Cheerleader" vaults to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 (dated July 25), dethroning Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again," featuring Charlie Puth, after 12 weeks on top.
Who else is worthy of cheers on the Hot 100 this week?
Fetty Wap, "679," feat. Remy Boyz
The track rockets 34-19 in its second week on the Hot 100, adding top Streaming Gainer honors. It blasts 43-17 on the Streaming Songs chart with an 80 percent gain to 6.1 million domestic streams, according to Nielsen Music. User-generated clips featuring the song's audio and Spotify clicks are driving its streaming activity.
Demi Lovato, "Cool for the Summer"
Like "679," Lovato's summer single rises in its second week on the Hot 100, from No. 36 to No. 28. The track ranks at No. 15 on Digital Songs with 108,000 sold and No. 40 on Radio Songs with 36 million in radio audience (up 29 percent). The arrival of its lyric video on July 7 also prompts a 185 percent gain in streams to 2.4 million. Surely aiding streams: the clip's high production value (at least for a lyric video) and pool-party eye candy. "Summer" also soars 3-1 in its second week on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks.
Fall Out Boy, "Uma Thurman"
The name-dropping tune rises 42-39 in its 14th week. With "Centuries" having reached No. 10 in February, the band has scored two top 40 Hot 100 hits in a year for the first time since 2008. That year, Fall Out Boy's cover of Michael Jackson's "Beat It," featuring John Mayer, reached No. 19 and "I Don't Care" rose to No. 21.
Steven Tyler, "Love Is Your Name"
While he's charted 28 Hot 100 hits fronting rock icons Aerosmith, including eight top 10s (and the 1998 No. 1 "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing"), Tyler previously charted one solo entry: "(It) Feels So Good," which debuted and peaked at No. 35 in 2011. Now, he adds his second solo hit, as "Love Is Your Name" bows at No. 75.
"Name" debuts at No. 1 on Country Streaming Songs with 3.3 million U.S. streams, up 1,278 percent, following the July 3 premiere of its official video. The clip also sparks the track's re-entry at a new peak (No. 19) on Hot Country Songs.
Meghan Trainor, "Like I'm Gonna Lose You," featuring John Legend
This week's chart marks the one-year anniversary of Trainor's Hot 100 debut, as "All About That Bass" began at No. 84 on the list dated July 26, 2014. The empowerment anthem would go on to spend eight weeks at No. 1 and earn the honor of Top Hot 100 Song (and Top Digital Song) at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards in May.
How to celebrate her first year on the Hot 100 (on which she's ranked each week continuously with at least one song since her start)? Trainor adds her sixth entry with her Legend collab (which the pair performed on the BBMAs) at No. 95. "Lose," the fourth radio single from her debut album, Title, is building in airplay, rising 39-36 on Adult Pop Songs, and sales (33,000 sold in the tracking week). Trainor also climbs 72-61 on the Hot 100 as featured on Charlie Puth's "Marvin Gaye."
