Hot 100 Chart Moves: Selena Gomez & Charlie Puth Hit the Top 40
After teaming up for a top 10 hit last year, each jumps with their own latest singles. Plus, debuts for the top two finishers on 'The Voice.'
As previously reported, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, tops the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated June 10) for a third week. Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" becomes the first song to spend its first 20 weeks on the Hot 100 in the top five.
Additionally, high-profile debuts include Liam Payne's "Strip That Down," featuring Quavo, the chart's top new entry at No. 42 (making Payne the fifth and final member of One Direction to chart a solo hit on the Hot 100); Katy Perry's "Swish Swish," featuring Nicki Minaj (No. 47); and former Fifth Harmony member Camila Cabello's first unaccompanied solo single, "Crying in the Club" (No. 47).
Who else makes notable Hot 100 chart moves this week?
Selena Gomez, "Bad Liar"
Following its first full week of tracking, covering the sales and streaming period spanning May 19-25 (after the song's release at midnight ET May 18), the single soars from No. 80 to No. 27 on the Hot 100. It jumps 35-20 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 36,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music, and enters Streaming Songs at No. 30 with 13.5 million U.S. streams. The track, which samples Talking Heads' 1977 alt classic "Psycho Killer," also sports 17 million in all-format airplay audience.
Charlie Puth, "Attention"
Speaking of Gomez, last October, she reached No. 9 on the Hot 100 as featured on Charlie Puth's "We Don't Talk Anymore," and, as she hits the top 40 with "Bad Liar," he returns to the region with "Attention" (45-35). Puth's fifth top 40 Hot 100 hit makes across-the-board gains, pushing 39-28 on Digital Song Sales, surging by 55 percent to 28,000 sold, and 41-37 on Streaming Songs (12.7 million, up 11 percent), while gaining by 10 percent to 19 million in radio audience.
As Puth told Billboard's Keith Caulfield and Katie Atkinson on this week's Pop Shop Podcast of the song's origin, "I was reading someone’s Instagram and [he] had poured [his] heart out about this girl. I think [he was] trying to convey some sort of message, like 'I've moved on and I'm a guy and I'm strong.' But what I got from that was, 'Wow, this girl completely played you and this girl just wanted attention.' And I just started singing, 'You just want attention …' "
Lauren Duski, "Deja Vu," The Dance"
Duski, who, competing for coach Blake Shelton's team, finished as the runner-up on the 12th season of NBC's The Voice, behind champ Chris Blue, debuts two titles on the Hot 100 after performing them on the season finale: original song "Deja Vu" and her cover of Garth Brooks' "The Dance." The songs start at Nos. 43 and 92, with 86,000 and 37,000 downloads sold, respectively. Notably regarding the latter song, Duski's take becomes the first version of the Tony Arata-penned classic to chart on Hot 100. (Brooks' original crowned Hot Country Songs for four weeks in 1990, but, at the time, that chart was solely airplay-based, while the multi-metric Hot 100's airplay feed then included data only from pop-formatted radio stations.)
Blue makes his first visit to the Hot 100, as "Money on You" bows at No. 66 (53,000 sold).
