Katy Perry's "Chained to the Rhythm," featuring Bob Marley's grandson, launches at No. 4, easily the highest-charting Hot 100 hit (as an artist) by a member of the first family of reggae.
The song, released Feb. 10 and which Perry and Marley performed on the Grammy Awards Feb. 12, debuts at No. 3 on the Digital Song Sales chart, with 108,000 downloads sold in the week ending Feb. 16, according to Nielsen Music, following its release on Feb. 10, and No. 15 on Streaming Songs (14.7 million U.S. streams). It also charges 35-20 on Radio Songs with 50 million in airplay audience after its first full week of tracking (ending Feb. 19).
While Perry tallies her 14th Hot 100 top 10, Marley achieves his first, and the significance of the latter feat is historic given his last name: Marley adds a new highlight to his family's legacy, as the grandson of late reggae icon Bob Marley earns the family its first Hot 100 top 10.
