Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello Top Pop Songs Chart With ‘Bad Things’

Cabello joins an exclusive list of artists who have led the airplay list solo & with a group.

Machine Gun Kelly and Camila Cabello crown Billboard‘s Pop Songs radio airplay chart with “Bad Things.” The collab climbs 2-1 on the list dated Feb. 18.

The track is the first leader (and first chart entry) for rapper Kelly. Cabello reigns in her second visit as a soloist. A year ago, she reached No. 10 with Shawn Mendes on “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”

As a member of Fifth Harmony (from 2012 until this past December), Cabello charted seven Pop Songs entries, including “Work From Home” (featuring Ty Dolla $ign), which led for two weeks in June 2016.

Cabello, thus, joins an elite troop of artists who’ve topped Pop Songs (which launched in 1992) both as a soloist and as part of a group. See Cabello’s fellow group-to-solo successes below.

Justin Timberlake (eight Pop Songs No. 1s) / *NSYNC (two)
Beyonce (six) and Kelly Rowland (one) / Destiny’s Child (two)
Adam Levine (two) / Maroon 5 (nine)
Gwen Stefani (two) / No Doubt (three)
Fergie (one) / The Black Eyed Peas (three)
Wyclef Jean (one) / Fugees (one)
