Camila Cabello Is the First Artist to Top Pop & Adult Pop Songs Charts With First Two Singles From Debut LP
'Never Be the Same' follows 'Havana' to the Adult Pop Songs summit, after both tracks led Pop Songs.
Camila Cabello's "Never Be the Same" rises 2-1 on Billboard's Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart, dated June 30. The track previously led the Pop Songs airplay chart for three weeks beginning May 12.
The song is Cabello's second No. 1 on each list from her debut album, Camila, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated Jan. 27. The set's lead single, "Havana," featuring Young Thug, led Pop Songs for seven weeks (beginning Dec. 9) and Adult Pop Songs for one frame (March 3).
With "Never" following "Havana," Cabello is the first artist to crown both the Pop Songs and Adult Pop Songs charts with the first two promoted singles from a debut LP.
Lorde had previously come closest to achieving the feat, as "Royals," the lead single from her first studio full-length, Pure Heroine, ruled both rankings in 2013. Follow-up "Team" topped Adult Pop Songs but peaked at No. 2 on Pop Songs.
The Pop Songs chart, which began in 1992 (and last year celebrated its 25th anniversary), measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music, among its reporting panel of 160 mainstream top 40 stations. Adult Pop Songs (launched in Billboard magazine in 1996) reflects airplay on 84 adult top 40 stations.
While "Never" is Cabello's second total Adult Pop Songs No. 1, after "Havana," "Never" became her third leader on Pop Songs, after "Havana" and "Bad Things," with Machine Gun Kelly, for two weeks in February 2017.
Additionally, Fifth Harmony, with Cabello as a member, led Pop Songs for two frames with "Work From Home," featuring Ty Dolla $ign, in June 2016; Cabello was a member of the now-on-hiatus group from its 2012 inception to December 2016.
