Who else makes notable Hot 100 chart moves this week?
"Let You Down," NF
NF's first Hot 100 hit holds at its No. 12 high and reaches the top 10 on the Radio Songs chart, where it climbs 13-10, up 17 percent to 68 million in all-format audience in the week ending Feb. 18, according to Nielsen Music. The song surges 7-4 as the Greatest Gainer on the Pop Songs airplay chart.
The pop singer-songwriter's first Hot 100 entry jumps 29-22 in just its fourth week on the chart. The track is being driven largely by streaming, as it enters the Streaming Songs top 10 (21 million U.S. streams, up 16 percent, in the week ending Feb. 15).
Airplay for the song is also building, as it pushes 37-27 on Rhythmic Songs, while bubbling under Pop Songs with early support from stations including WODS Boston (37 plays in the tracking week), KROI Houston (30) and KEGY San Diego (29).
"Say Something," Justin Timberlake feat. Chris Stapleton
The current pop radio single from Timberlake's new album Man of the Woods falls 17-31 in its third week on the Hot 100, after debuting at No. 9.
