The track, released on SYCO/Epic Records, becomes Cabello’s fifth Pop Songs leader, after “Señorita,” with Shawn Mendes (four weeks at No. 1, beginning last August); “Never Be the Same” (three, May 2018); “Havana,” featuring Young Thug (seven, December 2017); and “Bad Things,” with Machine Gun Kelly (two, February 2017).
(Cabello also topped Pop Songs as a member of Fifth Harmony, whose “Work From Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, spent two weeks at No. 1 in 2016.)
DaBaby leads Pop Songs in his first visit to the ranking.
The Pop Songs chart, which began in 1992, measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music/MRC Data, among its reporting panel of 166 mainstream top 40 stations.
“My Oh My” is the fourth song from Cabello’s sophomore album, Romance, released in December, to have appeared on Pop Songs, following “Señorita,” “Liar” and “Shameless.” The latter two singles were released concurrently and debuted on the chart dated Sept. 14, 2019; “Liar” peaked at No. 17 in November, three weeks after “Shameless” reached No. 27.
“My Oh My” debuted on the Pop Songs chart dated Jan. 4 and ascends to the summit in its 19th week.
Without the added buzz tied closely to an album release, “It does take time,” says Rick Sackheim, Epic executive vice president and general manager, of the climb of “My Oh My” (whose remix adding Gunna as a second featured artist arrived Friday, May 1). “It has to be played on the merit of the song.”
