The song marks the first leader on the list for Barrett and the third for Puth, following his own “One Call Away” (for two weeks in April-May 2016) and “Attention” (one week, October 2017).
“I Hope” led the Country Airplay chart for a week in April and, aided by its Puth remix released that month, has crossed to adult and pop radio. As it crowns Adult Pop Songs, it bullets at No. 7 on Pop Songs and No. 8 on Adult Contemporary.
On the all-genre Radio Songs chart, “I Hope” holds at its No. 2 high, up 2% to 74.4 million audience impressions in the week ending Oct. 18, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
On the all-genre airplay-, streaming- and sales-based Billboard Hot 100, “I Hope” is steady at its No. 8 best.
Barrett, who placed third on ABC’s American Idol in 2018, adds a 13th week at No. 1 on Hot Country Songs (which uses the same methodology as the Hot 100) with “I Hope.” Meanwhile, follow-up single “The Good Ones” lifts 35-34 on Country Airplay, up 11% to 3 million in audience.
