Hot 100 Chart Moves: Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez Soar With 'We Don't Talk Anymore'
The song leaps 18-13. Plus, moves for a worldwide hit & a country newcomer hits new heights.
As previously reported, The Chainsmokers and featured artist Halsey lead the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Sept. 10) for a second week with "Closer." Plus, Shawn Mendes scores his second top 10, as "Treat You Better" lifts from No. 12 to No. 10.
Among other notable Hot 100 chart moves:
Charlie Puth feat. Selena Gomez, "We Don't Talk Anymore"
The pair zooms to a new high, as "Talk" jumps 18-13 on the Hot 100. The track blasts into the Digital Songs sales chart's top five (21-5), up 71 percent to 57,000 sold, according to Nielsen Music, boosted by 69-cent sale-pricing in the iTunes Store.
The collab backtracks 16-17 on Radio Songs, but with a 5 percent lift to 56 million in airplay audience, and rises 28-23 on Streaming Songs (8.9 million U.S. streams, up 7 percent).
Should Puth and Gomez's single hit the Hot 100's top 10, it would become Gomez's sixth top 10 and Puth's second (as well as, as '80s fans will remember, the second song titled "We Don't Talk Anymore" to reach the region. Cliff Richard's same-named but different composition rose to No. 7 in 1980).
Kungs vs Cookin' on 3 Burners, "This Girl"
Since April, the track has topped charts in France, Germany and the U.K., among other countries. Now, the global smash is a top 40 Hot 100 hit, climbing 42-35. Airplay is its greatest contributor, as it jumps 28-24 on Radio Songs (44 million, up 13 percent), as well as 11-7 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay and 20-18 on Pop Songs. The single pushes 40-33 on Digital Songs (22,000, up 14 percent) and gains by 12 percent to 5 million U.S. streams.
William Michael Morgan, "I Met a Girl"
Nearly a year ago, Morgan's debut single entered the Country Airplay chart (dated Oct. 10, 2015). In its 47th week on the tally, it's a top 10 hit at last, rising 13-10 (26 million impressions, up 14 percent). The song ties for the steadiest ascent ever to the top 10; Chase Bryant's "Little Bit of You" also needed 47 weeks to reach the top 10, eventually peaking at No. 4 in April.
Vicksburg, Mississippi, native Morgan, 23, doubles his chart achievements this week, as "Girl" becomes his first Hot 100 entry, starting at No. 99.
