Plus, 19 No. 19 hits … for '19.
Welcome back to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what's on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.
This week, Gary and Trevor welcome Capitol Records executive vp of promotion Greg Marella to celebrate Halsey's first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 as a lead artist: "Without Me," which takes over atop the tally dated Jan. 12. It's also Capitol's first Hot 100 No. 1 since 2014.
