Haley Jones & Jon Miller from Nielsen break down the numbers.
Welcome 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, we recap Shawn Mendes' launch at a career-best No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100's with "If I Can't Have You." His new chart heights mark the latest milestone for a star pop act in 2019, following Jonas Brothers' first Hot 100 No. 1, "Sucker"; Ariana Grande's second and longest-leading No. 1, "7 Rings"; BTS' highest-charting hit, "Boy With Luv," featuring Halsey, and more.
