Who else makes noteworthy Hot 100 chart moves this week?
DNCE, "Cake by the Ocean"
The confectionary cut and debut single from the Joe Jonas-led act sweetens the Hot 100's top 40 for the first time, surging 41-26. The track scores the largest gain in streams among titles in the top 30 of the Streaming Songs chart, where it jumps 37-26 with a 21 percent burst to 5.9 million U.S. clicks (in the week ending Jan. 7), according to Nielsen Music. The song also steps 20-19 on the Pop Songs airplay chart and rises by 24 percent to 24 million in all-format audience.
Jonas has now hit the Hot 100's top 40 under three billings: before DNCE, he tallied 10 top 40 hits in 2007-09 as part of Jonas Brothers, while, in 2008, he notched two as a soloist.
Flo Rida, "My House"
The track hits a new high on the Hot 100, lifting 34-32. It debuts on Streaming Songs at No. 46 with 3.8 million streams (up 5 percent), while soaring by 38 percent to 20 million in radio audience.
"My House" is the title cut from Flo Rida's EP that debuted and peaked at No. 14 on the April 25, 2015 Billboard 200; at 40 weeks and counting, the set is his longest-charting among five entries, passing the 37-week run of 2012's Wild Ones.
Rachel Platten, "Stand by You"
As her album Wildfire launches at No. 5 on the Billboard 200, second single "Stand by You" becomes her second top 40 Hot 100 hit, climbing 50-38. Lead track "Fight Song" rose to No. 6 in August. On the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart, "Stand" bullets at its No. 7 high.
Taylor Swift, "Out of the Woods"
After Swift premiered the video for the sixth 1989 single Dec. 31 on ABC's Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve With Ryan Seacrest, the song re-enters the Hot 100 at No. 46. Fueling its return, it bows on Streaming Songs at No. 32 with 4.8 million domestic streams, up a whopping 739 percent, in the week ending Jan. 7. It also enters Pop Songs at No. 28.
"Woods" first hit the Hot 100 (No. 18) on Nov. 1, 2014, as a preview cut from 1989, two weeks before the set launched atop the Billboard 200.
Carrie Underwood, "Heartbeat"
As the track starts at No. 76 on the Hot 100 (and bounds 22-15 on Hot Country Songs), the 2005 American Idol champion extends her mark for the most Hot 100 entries by a contestant from the show to 29. Original 2002 Idol queen Kelly Clarkson follows with 25 visits.
