Ava Max’s ‘Sweet But Psycho’ Caps Second-Longest Rise to Streaming Songs Chart’s Top 30

In its 19th week on the list, the track hits the top 30 for the first time, garnering 15.8 million streams.

In its 19th straight week on the Streaming Songs chart, Ava Max’s “Sweet But Psycho” makes its first appearance in the top 30 on the May 25-dated list.

The track moves 33-30 with 15.8 million streams earned in the week ending May 16, according to Nielsen Music.

“Psycho” and its 19-week climb to the top 30 is the second-slowest trip to the region since the tally began in 2013, following The Weeknd’s “Often,” which took 20 nonconsecutive weeks to hit the top 30 on Sept. 19, 2015 (but eight months after the track debuted on the chart). Therefore, “Psycho” becomes the slowest continuous rise since a song’s initial debut to the top 30.


The song concurrently bullets at its No. 3 peak on the Pop Songs airplay chart and leaps 7-4 on Adult Pop Songs. It’s been building its profile since it first appeared on the Streaming Songs chart at No. 48 on the Jan. 19-dated tally.

It’s also spent the last nine weeks in the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 11 for two weeks (May 4-11). It rises 13-12 on the Hot 100 dated May 25, bulleting with its largest amount of chart points yet.
