As previously reported, The Chainsmokers continue to top the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Oct. 29), as “Closer,” featuring Halsey, leads for a ninth week. Meanwhile, Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic” debuts at No. 5 and Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s “Side to Side” rises 12-10.
Plus, as Piko-Taro debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 77 with his novelty viral hit “PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen),” the track makes history as the shortest song – a mere 45 seconds in length – ever to reach the chart.
Who else pens impressive moves on the Hot 100?
Zay Hilfigerrr & Zayion McCall, “Juju on That Beat”
The viral smash skyrockets 89-11 on the Hot 100, after its buzz sparked Hilfigerrr and McCall’s signing to Atlantic Records and an official “Juju” release to digital retailers and streaming services Sept. 30. The song roars to a No. 4 re-entry on Streaming Songs, leaping by 957 percent to 16.7 million U.S. streams in the week ending Oct. 13, according to Nielsen Music, and pushes 13-8 on Digital Song Sales, up by 33 percent to 41,000 downloads sold.
John Legend, “Love Me Now”
At No. 55, John Legend lands his highest Hot 100 debut, as the song sold 36,000 in the week ending Oct. 13. (Notably, four days earlier, he helped cut the ribbon for the new John Legend Theater in his hometown of Springfield, Ohio.) The uptempo track also starts at No. 8 on Hot R&B Songs.
Maroon 5 feat. Kendrick Lamar, Don’t Wanna Know”
The pop/trop-house collab enters the Hot 100 at No. 56, aided by 28,000 downloads sold, good for a No. 15 start on Digital Song Sales, and 1.5 million U.S. streams earned in the week ending Oct. 13. Notably, the song’s Oct. 12 release allowed for only two days of sales and streaming activity in the tracking week, which closed Oct. 13. With the airplay tracking week ending Oct. 16, “Know” enters Radio Songs at No. 40 with 31 million radio audience impressions since its arrival.
Grace feat. G-Eazy, “You Don’t Own Me”
Grace‘s remake of Lesley Gore‘s classic surges 87-61 on the Hot 100, approaching its No. 57 peak logged on the Sept. 3-dated chart; the song debuted on the May 7 Hot 100. Helping the renewed momentum for Grace’s cover is its synch in a new Toyota Corolla commercial (which does not feature Grace’s vocals). Grace’s “Own” blasts 41-17 on Digital Song Sales, up by 84 percent to 27,000 downloads sold. It also gains by 11 percent to 4.2 million domestic streams.
Meanwhile, Gore’s original also soars in sales, debuting at No. 29 on Pop Digital Song Sales with a 95 percent burst to 10,000 sold. Her version reached No. 2 on the Hot 100 in 1964.
