Hot 100 Chart Moves: Taylor Swift Tallies 55th Top 40 Hit With ‘End Game’

The song surges 83-39 following the wide-release of parent album "Reputation" on streaming services. Plus, chart action for Dua Lipa & Demi Lovato.

As previously reported, Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé‘s “Perfect” crowns the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 23), fueled heavily by the first full week of sales and streaming for its new duet version.

Plus, Camila Cabello‘s “Havana” takes over atop the Radio Songs chart; Halsey‘s “Bad at Love” hits the Hot 100’s top 10, climbing 11-8, while her new (and descriptive) duet with G-Eazy, “Him & I,” debuts at No. 21; and Mariah Carey‘s 1994 classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” returns to its No. 11 Hot 100 high.

Who else makes notable Hot 100 chart moves this week?


“End Game,” Taylor Swift feat. Ed Sheeran and Future
The song vaults 83-39 in its third week on the Hot 100 (after debuting at No. 86 two weeks ago), following parent album Reputation‘s wide release to streaming services Dec. 1. Previously, only the set’s four pre-release tracks were available for streaming. Those four songs all hit the Hot 100’s top 40: “Look What You Made Me Do” (three weeks at No. 1); “…Ready for It?” (No. 4); “Gorgeous” (No. 13); and “Call It What You Want” (No. 27).

“End Game,” now Reputation‘s fifth top 40 hit, drew 7.6 million U.S. streams in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music. It also jumps 15-10 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 40 percent to 24,000 downloads sold, and 45-38 on Radio Songs (31 million audience impressions, up 26 percent).

Swift tallies her 55th top 40 Hot 100 hit, the fifth-best total in the chart’s history. Elvis Presley leads with 80 top 40 titles, dating to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, launch (more than two years after he began appearing on various Billboard charts).

“New Rules,” Dua Lipa
The pop singer-songwriter earns her first top 10 on the Pop Songs airplay chart, as “New Rules” rises 11-9 (up 13 percent in plays). She charted three prior songs on the tally, all since November 2016: “Blow Your Mind (Mwah)” (No. 23), “Scared to Be Lonely,” with Martin Garrix (No. 21), and “Be the One” (No. 40).

On the Hot 100,  “New Rules” ranks at No. 17 after reaching No. 15.

“Tell Me You Love Me,” Demi Lovato
Following the Dec. 1 premiere of its official video, the song re-enters the Hot 100 at a new No. 53 high (after a week at No. 97 on Sept. 16, as it was released ahead of Lovato’s album of the same name, which entered the Billboard 200 dated Oct. 21 at its No. 3 peak).

The track re-enters Digital Song Sales at No. 20 (17,000, up 709 percent) and bows on Streaming Songs at No. 48, up 464 percent to 10.9 million U.S. streams.
