The Weeknd Notches Tenth Top 5 Hit on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks with 'I Feel It Coming'
Plus, Nicki Minaj and Lorde debut with new releases.
Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks (which began in June 2014) 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. The latest chart reflects activity in the week ending March 12.
The track re-enters the chart on the strength of Twitter chatter generated by the song’s music video release on March 9, which has raced to 22 million global views since its release on YouTube.
“Coming,” which currently stands at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, entered the Top Tracks chart at No. 43 on Dec. 3, the week after The Weeknd released his No. 1 Billboard 200 album Starboy. The song jumped to No. 25 on Top Tracks the following week and fell off the chart entirely two weeks after. The song last appeared on the chart dated March 4 at No. 41.
Of The Weeknd’s 10 songs to appear in the top five of the chart, five of them are featured on Starboy.
