Hot 100 Chart Moves: Clean Bandit Breaks Into Top 40 With ‘Rockabye’

The U.K. dance act earns its second top 40 hit, following "Rather Be." Plus, climbs for KYLE & Andy Grammer.

As previously reported, Migos‘ “Bad and Boujee,” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, rebounds from No. 2 to No. 1 to top the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Feb. 4) for a second total week. The track dethrones Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You” (1-2), which debuted at No. 1 a week ago. Plus, The Chainsmokers debut at No. 7 with “Paris.”

Who else makes moves on the Hot 100?


KYLE feat. Lil Yachty, “iSpy”
KYLE’s breakthrough single enters the Hot 100’s top 40 (42-32), led by streaming as it pushes 22-17 on the Streaming Songs chart, up by 26 percent to 10.1 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 19, according to Nielsen Music. It also jumps 39-27 on Digital Song Sales (25,000 downloads sold, up 59 percent), aided by a 99-cent sale price in the iTunes Store.

KYLE (last name: Harvey), 23 years old and from Ventura, California, hits the top 40 in his first Hot 100 visit, while Lil Yachty earns his second top 40 track, following his featured turn on D.R.A.M.‘s No. 5-peaking “Broccoli” (now at No. 21).

(And, Kyles of the world, rejoice: KYLE is the first solo artist named Kyle ever to make the Hot 100 in the chart’s 58-year, up-until-now-Kyle-less history.)

Clean Bandit feat. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie, “Rockabye”
After topping the Official UK Singles chart for a whopping nine weeks (Nov. 26-Jan. 21), becoming one of only 18 singles to reign for that long all-time, the song reaches the Hot 100’s top 40 (51-38). It rises 46-40 on Digital Songs (18,000, up 30 percent) and debuts on Streaming Songs at No. 48 (6.3 million, up 18 percent), while nearing Radio Songs, with a 24 percent gain to 19 million in airplay audience; on the Pop Songs airplay chart, it ascends 25-24 with a 41 percent advance.

Clean Bandit collects its second top 40 hit, as its sole prior entry, “Rather Be” (featuring Jess Glynne), rose to No. 10 in 2014. Paul adds his 12th, and boasts simultaneous top 40 hits for the first time since 2006, as Sia‘s former four-week No. 1 “Cheap Thrills,” on which he’s featured, holds at No. 27. On Aug. 12, 2006, Paul’s “Temperature” spent its last week in the top 40, at No. 39 after a week at No. 1, while “(When You Gonna) Give It Up to Me” (featuring Keyshia Cole) ranked at No. 12, on its way to a No. 3 peak. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie is making her first Hot 100 ascent; her own single “Alarm” climbed to No. 34 on Pop Songs in December.

On Hot Dance/Electronic Digital Songs, “Rockabye” reaches the top five (7-5). “Rather Be” led the list for three weeks in 2014.


Andy Grammer, “Fresh Eyes”
Boosted by a Jan. 12 performance on CNN and a 69-cent iTunes sale price, the song claims the Hot 100’s top digital sales gainer award, re-entering Digital Song Sales at No. 34 (22,000, up 112 percent). It jumps 84-68 on the Hot 100, nearing its No. 59 peak, set in December.

On the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart, “Eyes” ranks at No. 10 with its best weekly plays total, a week after rising to No. 9 and becoming Grammer’s fourth top 10. His last, “Honey, I’m Good.,” became his first No. 1, topping the July 4, 2015, tally.
