The song takes over atop both tallies, making a record-setting rise on the latter.
Another week, two more airplay charts that Adele's "Hello" has conquered.
"Hello" jumps 4-1 on Billboard's mainstream top 40-based Pop Songs radio airplay chart and 3-1 on Adult Pop Songs. At just five weeks, the single ties Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood," featuring Kendrick Lamar (July 4), for the quickest flight to No. 1 on Pop Songs in the past 20 years.
Meanwhile, the ascent of "Hello" on Adult Pop Songs is historic: its five-week rise to the summit is the fastest in the chart's nearly 20-year archives, besting the six-week sprints of Swift's "Shake It Off" (2014) and Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me" (1996).
