Billie Eilish and Khalid's collaborative hit "Lovely" rules The Hollywood Reporter's Top TV Songs chart, powered by Tunefind and Shazam, for May, thanks to its appearance in Netflix's 13 Reasons Why.

Billie Eilish and Khalid’s collaborative hit “Lovely” rules The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Songs chart, powered by Tunefind and Shazam, for May, thanks to its appearance in Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

Rankings for the Top TV Songs chart are based on song and show data provided by Tunefind and ranked using a formula blending respective Shazam tags, as well as sales and streaming information tracked by Nielsen Music during the corresponding period.


“Lovely,” which the duo released on April 26, leads all songs with 59,000 Shazam tags, 7,000 downloads sold and 2.1 million U.S. streams in May, according to Nielsen Music.

Khalid also ruled the Top TV Songs for March, as a featured artist on Alina Baraz’s “Electric,” which appeared in Netflix’s On My Block. “Lovely” is Eilish’s first leader.

Grandson debuts at No. 6 on Top TV Songs with their breakout hit “Blood // Water,” thanks to its appearance in The CW’s Riverdale.

The track vaults from No. 50 to No. 33 on the latest Hot Rock Songs chart (dated June 16) — their first entry on any Billboard chart — and logged 18,000 Shazam tags, 3,000 downloads and 3 million U.S. streams in May.

13 Reasons Why also helps Bleachers debut on Top TV Songs with their former hit “Rollercoaster.” The track, along with “Lovely,” appeared in the second season’s 13th episode “Bye.”

“Rollercoaster” earned 15,000 Shazam tags, 2,000 downloads sold and 2.1 million streams in the month. The song reached No. 3 on the Alternative Songs chart and No. 15 on Hot Rock Songs in 2015.
