Hot 100 Chart Moves: Ariana Grande's 'Breathin' Bounds After Video Premiere

Plus, 5SOS' "Youngblood" tops Adult Pop Songs.

As previously reported, Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" leads the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Nov. 24) for a second week. The song blasted in atop the Hot 100 a week ago, becoming Grande's first No. 1 on the chart.

Grande also surges just below the Hot 100's top 10, as "Breathin" bounds from No. 21 to No. 14 for a new peak, following the Nov. 7 premiere of its official video. The song charges by 28 percent to 15.6 million U.S. streams and 2 percent to 12,000 sold in the week ending Nov. 15, according to Nielsen Music.

"Breathin" also becomes Grande's 10th top 10 on the Radio Songs chart, rising 12-7 (68.7 million in all-format airplay audience, up 17 percent, in the week ending Nov. 18).

"Breathin" is from Grande's third No. 1 Billboard 200 album, Sweetener, which debuted atop the chart dated Sept. 1, while "Next" is, as of now, a stand-alone track. "Breathin" follows two Hot 100 top 10s from the set: "No Tears Left to Cry" (No. 3 peak in May) and "God Is a Woman" (No. 8, September).

Who else makes notable chart moves?

"Youngblood," 5 Seconds of Summer
As the track drops 11-12 on the Hot 100, after becoming the band's first top 10, reaching No. 7, it becomes 5SOS' first No. 1 on the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart. The single previously became the group's first No. 1, for five weeks, on the Pop Songs airplay tally.

"Lose It," Kane Brown
Brown basks in an exceptional chart week, debuting at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 and Top Country Albums with his sophomore LP Experiment, while the set's lead single, "Lose It," becomes his second No. 1 on Hot Country Songs, following "What Ifs," featuring Lauren Alaina, for five weeks beginning Oct. 21, 2017.

On the Hot 100, "Lose It" becomes Brown's third top 40 hit, soaring 53-28. "What Ifs" reached No. 26 last November and follow-up "Heaven" hit No. 15 this May.

Notably, Brown has dethroned the two longest-leading Hot Country Songs hits all-time: "What Ifs" unseated Sam Hunt's 34-week No. 1 "Body Like a Back Road" and "Lose It" replaces Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line's "Meant to Be" after an unprecedented 50 weeks on top.

"Speechless," Dan + Shay
The duo scores its second top 40 Hot 100 hit, as the song climbs 45-38. Its first? "Tequila," which jumps 43-36 after reaching No. 21 in July. The pair performed the latter song on the 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards Nov. 14.

"Speechless" lifts 8-7 on Country Airplay, up 11 percent to 29.6 million impressions. "Tequila" became the duo's fourth No. 1 on the chart in July.

"Leave Me Alone," Flipp Dinero
The Brooklyn rapper reaches the Hot 100's top 40 with his first entry (41-37), which ascends 32-30 on Streaming Songs (15.3 million, up 3 percent).

Dinero told Billboard that the song's subject knew that it's about her when she heard it. "Of course," he said. "She's like, 'Why are you dissing me?' I'm like, 'What do you mean? I'm not dissing you. It's the truth.' [But] she loves it. It's a vibe. It's a funny song, but it's an emotional song. It's so real, and she knows it's real, too, so she had to respect it. I really did tell her to leave me alone."
