Shawn Mendes makes his 2018 Billboard Hot 100 debut, as his new single “In My Blood” opens at No. 72 on the chart (dated March 31) after only one day of streaming and sales tracking and four days of radio airplay monitoring.
“Blood” logged 2.2 million U.S. streams and sold 27,000 downloads in the week ending March 22, following its release at the start of that day, according to Nielsen Music.
The track debuts at No. 9 on the Digital Song Sales chart, earning Mendes his seventh top 10.
“Blood” is likely to see a sizable jump on next week’s Hot 100 (dated April 7), as that chart will encompass the song’s first full week of tracking. (Streaming and sales run on a Friday through Thursday tracking cycle, while airplay runs Monday through Sunday.)
Next week’s charts could also see action for fellow new Mendes song “Lost in Japan,” released March 23.
Mendes has now earned nine total Hot 100 entries, dating to his first, the No. 24-peaking “Life of the Party,” in 2014. His five entries prior to “Blood” have all reached the top 20, including his three career top 10s so far: “Stiches” (No. 4, 2015), “Treat You Better” (No. 6, 2016) and “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” (No. 6, 2017).
