Selena Gomez earns her third No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart (dated April 16), as "Hands to Myself" lifts 2-1. The single follows leaders "Good for You," featuring A$AP Rocky, and "Same Old Love," each of which led for two weeks beginning in September and January, respectively.
With all three songs from her album Revival, Gomez becomes just the sixth woman to score at least a trio of Pop Songs No. 1s from a single set (dating to the chart's 1992 launch). Here is the elite club and the albums and songs that gained them entrance:
Alanis Morissette, Jagged Little Pill: "Ironic," "You Learn," "Head Over Feet" (1996)
Avril Lavigne, Let Go: "Complicated," "Sk8er Boi," "I'm With You" (2002-03)
Lady Gaga, The Fame, "Just Dance" (featuring Colby O'Donis), "Poker Face," "LoveGame," "Paparazzi" (2009)
Katy Perry, Teenage Dream: "California Gurls" (featuring Snoop Dogg), "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T." (featuring Kanye West), "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," "The One That Got Away" (2010-12)
Taylor Swift, 1989: "Shake It Off," "Blank Space," "Style," "Bad Blood" (featuring Kendrick Lamar), "Wildest Dreams" (2014-15)
Selena Gomez, Revival: "Good for You" (featuring A$AP Rocky), "Same Old Love," "Hands to Myself" (2015-16)
Two groups and two males have also collected at least three Pop Songs No. 1s apiece from individual albums: Ace of Base (The Sign, 1993-94), Justin Timberlake (FutureSex/LoveSounds, 2006-07), Maroon 5 (Overexposed, 2012-13) and Justin Bieber (Purpose, 2015-16; Gomez's ex earned his third No. 1 from the set with "Love Yourself," which this week rebounds 3-2, a notch below "Hands to Myself").
Revival arrived as Gomez's second No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in October and, powered by its first three singles, has sold 333,000 to date, according to Nielsen Music. "This album in particular was such a transition for me," Gomez said as she accepted her Chart-Topper award at Billboard's Women in Music festivities in December. "I have so much more to prove."
Gomez isn't done yet with Revival: the whistle-infused "Kill Em With Kindness" has just been announced (by Interscope Records) as the set's fourth single, going to pop radio May 3.
Meanwhile, four tracks debut on Pop Songs: Jason Derulo's "If It Ain't Love" (No. 34); Flume's "Never Be Like You," featuring Kai (No. 35); Grace's Lesley Gore reinterpretation "You Don't Own Me," featuring G-Eazy (No. 37); and Major Lazer's "Light It Up," featuring Nyla (No. 38). (Another modernization of a Gore hit from the '60s is bubbling under the chart: Melanie Martinez's "Pity Party," which updates "It's My Party.")
All charts will update tomorrow (April 5) on Billboard.com.
