The new collaboration, which features Maluma & Swae Lee, starts at No. 28 on the Hot 100 and No. 14 on Streaming Songs.

“Arms Around You,” the new collaboration between Lil Pump and the late XXXTentacion, is off to a strong start, bowing at No. 14 on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart dated Nov. 10 in its first full week of streams.

The track, which features Maluma and Swae Lee, debuts with 19.9 million streams earned in the week ending Nov. 1, according to Nielsen Music. That follows a release week (it was released Oct. 25, meaning it accrued one day of streams before the tracking week reset) of 1.5 million clicks.

“You” is Lil Pump’s third song to debut within the top 20 of Streaming Songs, all coming in 2018; previously, “Esskeetit” started at No. 13 (April 28) while “I Love It,” with Kanye West, bowed at No. 1 (Sept. 22). It’s also XXXTentacion’s third-highest debut as a lead artist, behind “Sad!” (No. 5, March 17) and “Jocelyn Flores” (No. 11, Sept. 16, 2017).

“You” concurrently starts at No. 28 on the Billboard Hot 100, enters Digital Song Sales at No. 18 (11,000 downloads) and is bubbling under the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart.

The song was conceived after Lil Pump reached out to XXXTentacion’s mother following his death to inquire about making a song to honor the artist, who died June 18. Skrillex, JonFX and Mally Mall co-produced the track.

Meanwhile, Maluma scores his highest-charting track on Streaming Songs with “You,” eclipsing the No. 39 peak of “Felices Los 4” (Aug. 5, 2017), and it’s Swae Lee’s third top 20 debut as a solo artist, following Post Malone’s “Spoil My Night,” on which he’s featured (No. 8, May 12), and “Sunflower,” this time on equal billing with Malone (No. 8, Nov. 3).
