Jason Derulo continues his hot streak on the Billboard Hot 100 as “Want to Want Me” becomes his sixth straight top 40 hit, rising 45-27. The track arrived March 9 and is off to a fast start at mainstream top 40 radio.
The Beluga Heights/Warner Bros. single, which previews Derulo’s fourth album (due this summer), vaults 22-17 on Mainstream Top 40 Airplay with 5,198 spins (up 33 percent) in the week ending March 22, according to Nielsen Music.
“Want” tallied 2 million U.S. streams for the week, up 56percent. Expect that number to grow in the April 11 issue, as the track’s music video premiered March 23 (initially through Tinder, and then on YouTube).
The single held on to its sales in its second week, dropping by only 3 percent to 48,000 sold. (The track maintains its spot at No.19 on Digital Songs.) Its two-week total stands at 98,000 downloads.
