Machine Gun Kelly x Camila Cabello, "Bad Things"
Fifth Harmony, "That's My Girl"
Kelly notches his first top 40 Hot 100 hit and Cabello her second as a soloist, as "Bad Things" blasts 46-28. The collab climbs 32-20 on Digital Song Sales (30,000 downloads sold, up 77 percent, in the week ending Nov. 24, according to Nielsen Music) and enters Radio Songs at No. 40 (30 million in audience, up 39 percent).
Cabello also debuts as one-fifth of Fifth Harmony, as "That's My Girl" starts at No. 73. Following the American Music Awards, broadcast live Nov. 21 on ABC, the song surges by 90 percent to 13,000 sold, as the group sang the track as the third performance of the night.
Rihanna, "Love on the Brain"
Rihanna scores a third top 40 Hot 100 hit from her album Anti, as "Love on the Brain" lifts 50-34. The retro R&B ballad, which follows the nine-week No. 1 "Work" (featuring Drake) and the No. 7-peaking "Needed Me," jumps 35-27 on Digital Song Sales (25,000, up 56 percent) and 42-35 on Radio Songs (33 million, up 26 percent).
John Mayer, "Love on the Weekend"
The singer-songwriter returns to the Hot 100, at No. 53, as his new single arrives with 42,000 sold in its first full week of tracking. The song marks Mayer's 20th career Hot 100 visit, dating to his 2002 debut with "No Such Thing," and his highest-charting entry since "Who You Love," featuring (former flame) Katy Perry, reached No. 48 in January 2014.
Britney Spears feat. Tinashe, "Slumber Party"
Spears charts the second single from Glory, following the No. 17-peaking "Make Me…" (featuring G-Eazy), as "Slumber Party" starts at No. 86. The song bows with 3.8 million U.S. streams following the Nov. 18 premiere of its official video.
Train, "Play That Song"
The band rolls onto the Hot 100, at No. 91, for the first time in more than two years with its new single, which starts with 1 million U.S. streams and 24,000 sold. Notably, the song borrows the melody of the standard "Heart and Soul," written by Hoagy Carmichael and Frank Loesser in 1938; among three charted versions of "Heart" on the Hot 100, The Cleftones' take rose highest, to No. 18 in 1961.
Carmichael is also beloved as the writer of "Georgia on My Mind," while Loesser wrote the holiday classic "Baby, It's Cold Outside."
