The track is each artist’s second Pop Songs leader. G-Eazy led the list for two weeks beginning April 23, 2016, with “Me, Myself & I,” featuring Bebe Rexha, while Halsey reigned for 11 weeks beginning Oct. 8, 2016, as featured on The Chainsmokers‘ “Closer.” Thus, “Him & I” marks her first Pop Songs No. 1 as a lead act.
The Pop Songs chart measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music, among its reporting panel of 160 mainstream top 40 stations.
As for him and her romantically, G-Eazy and Halsey aren’t the first couple in real life to top Pop Songs together: Beyonce led the list dated Aug. 16, 2003, with “Crazy in Love,” featuring then-future husband JAY-Z.
Among other moves on Pop Songs, Camila Cabello earns her fourth top 10 as a soloist, as “Never Be the Same” surges 14-10. (Fifth Harmony, which Cabello left in December 2016, tallied two top 10s while she was a member.)
G-Eazy and Halsey’s “Him & I” has hit a No. 14 high on the streaming-, airplay- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100. Highlights of the March 17-dated Hot 100’s top 10 will be revealed later today and all charts will update tomorrow (March 13) on Billboard.com.
