On the Sept. 19 chart update, Taylor Swift is still reigning queen of the Hot 100 songs chart while Sam Smith's new track "Too Good at Goodbyes" comes roaring in at No. 5. Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" takes the lead on Streaming Songs.
It's a rarity when a song holds the No. 1 position on the overall Hot 100 but Taylor Swift is doing just that with "Look What You Made Me Do." The country turned pop singer-songwriter dips on Streaming Songs to No. 2 having 39.9 million hits in the U.S. Over on Digital Songs, the track is No. 2 for another week selling a solid 69,000 copies which are down 35 percent over the previous tracking week. Thanks to airplay, Swift can hold onto that No. 1 as she rises from No. 13 to No. 10 on Radio Songs after receiving 75 million impressions.
Cardi B is enjoying chart success as well as her hit single "Bodak Yellow" continues to sit at No. 2 on the Hot 100 eyeing the top spot. She takes over Streaming Songs having 40.8 million listens through official platforms such as Spotify and YouTube. It did, however, slide down the Digital Songs tally by 14 percent after selling 30,000 copies of the song. "Yellow" increased by 2 percent on Radio Songs where it places at No. 16.
Sam Smith quickly became the talk of the town when his new single "Too Good at Goodbyes" was dropped and took off nearly instantly. The song debuts at No. 5, his highest debut yet, and takes over Digital Songs. His second No. 1 on the sales chart opens with 90,000 copies total. "Too Good" opens at No. 10 on Streaming Songs with 20.8 million hits and is up 38 percent on the radio with 35 million impressions in its first full week. Radio airplay is tracked Monday through Sunday.
Pop star Kelly Clarkson is making her debut on the Hot 100 songs chart with her latest single "Love So Soft." The track opens at No. 62 but rises from No. 22 to No. 14 in its second week of airplay on Adult Pop Songs, also known as Adult Top 40. The new single is taken from the upcoming album Meaning of Life due in stores Oct. 27.
Over on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, country star Thomas Rhett debuts at No. 1, his first Top 200 No. 1, with Life Changes. The album moved 123,000 units combined with 94,000 of that sum deriving from sales. It's the first time that a country act has led the chart in exactly one year after Jason Aldean's They Don't Know reached the top.
