Hot 100 Chart Moves: Jennifer Lopez & Lin-Manuel Miranda's Charity Single Debuts
The stars' "Love Make the World Go Round" bows, powered by its top 10 sales start. Plus, moves for Drake, Ariana Grande & more.
As previously reported, Drake's "One Dance," featuring WizKid and Kyla, crowns the Billboard Hot 100 (dated July 30) for a 10th total week, joining an elite list of singles in the Hot 100's history to rule for double-digit weeks. The song also bests Rihanna's "Work," featuring Drake, which led for nine weeks in March and April, as both the longest-leading No. 1 of 2016 and of Drake's career.
Plus, Adele earns a second Hot 100 top 10 from her album 25 with "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)."
Who else sends songs up the Hot 100 this week?
Drake, "Controlla" & "Too Good"
Hang on: let's stay with Drake for a moment. As "One Dance" dominates, two other songs from his Views album, which returns to the top of the Billboard 200, scale the Hot 100's top 20: "Controlla" (18-16) and "Too Good," featuring Rihanna (22-19), both hitting new highs.
While "Controlla" outranks "Too Good" on the Hot 100, "Too Good" logged slightly higher streams and sales than "Controlla" in the tracking week: 9.9 million vs. 9.8 million domestic streams, according to Nielsen Music, and 30,000 vs. 27,000 downloads sold. "Controlla" ranks higher on the Hot 100, however, due its notable lead in airplay: it bounds 28-19 on Radio Songs (48 million in audience, up 11 percent), while "Too Good" debuts at No. 47 (28 million, up 25 percent).
Ariana Grande, "Into You"
As "Into You" jumps 41-33, Grande tallies a second top 40 Hot 100 hit from Dangerous Woman; the title track ranks at No. 24 after reaching No. 8. "Into You" surges by 49 percent to 27 million in radio audience and 37 percent to 20,000 sold.
Jennifer Lopez & Lin-Manuel Miranda, "Love Make the World Go Round"
"My message has always been about love," Jennifer Lopez told Elvis Duran, host of Premiere Radio networks' Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on July 14.
In the wake of the tragic shootings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., early on June 12, Lopez teamed with Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (who closed his run in Hamilton July 9) to record "Love Make the World Go Round," and the single debuts at No. 9 on the Digital Songs sales chart, and No. 72 on the Hot 100, with 54,000 first-week downloads sold. (Miranda makes his first appearance on Billboard's charts.) Proceeds of the song go to Somos Orlando, which assists family members of the Pulse victims.
Lopez was inspired to duet with Miranda after his heartfelt speech at the Tonys the night of June 12. "I had that song for, like, eight months, but there was something about it that wasn't right," she told Duran. "[After] Orlando, it just seemed like, 'Oh God, the world needs this message right now.'"
The song (which Lopez and Miranda performed on NBC's Today July 11) is the latest charity single to reach a Billboard chart following the recent violence in Orlando and worldwide. Among others, Broadway for Orlando's cover of Jackie DeShannon's "What the World Needs Now Is Love" (written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David) debuted at No. 13 on Digital Songs (and No. 86 on the Hot 100) dated July 9 with 48,000 sold.
Marc E. Bassy feat. G-Eazy, "You & Me"
Bassy makes his Hot 100 debut (No. 91), although he and G-Eazy charted a prior collab: with G-Eazy as the lead, "Some Kind of Drug" hit Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in December.
Zara Larsson, "Lush Life"
Larsson ranks at No. 40 on the Hot 100 with "Never Forget You" (with MNEK), which reached No. 13 in June. Now, she debuts on her own with "Lush Life" (No. 97), fueled by its 3.9 million U.S. clicks (up 8 percent) in the tracking week.
