As "Mercy" succeeds "Ruin," the singer-songwriter is now one of three acts to unseat itself from the top.
Shawn Mendes’ “Mercy” flies 10-1 on the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart (dated Jan. 14), knocking his own “Ruin” from the top slot. With the bump, the singer-songwriter becomes the third act to succeed itself at No. 1. The previous two? Justin Bieber, whose “Sorry” replaced “Love Yourself” on the Jan. 30, 2016, ranking, and Zayn, who achieved the feat twice consecutively when “It’s You” topped the list dated March 19, 2016, and was succeeded by the No. 1 reigns of “Like I Would” (March 26) and “Befour” (April 2).
Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks is a weekly ranking of the most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the U.S., ranked by the volume of shares over a seven-day period (Monday to Sunday). The newest chart’s tracking week ended on Jan. 1.
