The Weeknd's latest hit "I Feel It Coming" with Daft Punk is finally climbing up the charts thanks to radio airplay and an increase in sales and streaming. Following his No. 1 hit "Starboy," "I Feel It Coming" has become The Weeknd's fifth top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart as reflected on the March 21 update.
"I Feel It Coming" not only reaches the top 10, it soars into the top 5 moving from No. 12 to No. 5 on the latest update. It had previously peaked at No. 9 on the songs chart and benefits from releasing the official music video along with an iTunes sale pricing of 69 cents. Those sales are known to boost a song and help it hold on to higher positions.
On the component charts of the Hot 100, "I Feel It Coming" rises on two of those in the latest tracking week. On Digital Songs thanks to the sale pricing, "Feel" moves from No. 24 all the way to No. 8 with a 78 percent increase selling 55,000 copies. On Streaming Songs, it leaps almost 30 positions from Nno. 49 to No. 20 having 14.8 million listens on recognized platforms such as Spotify and Google Play. The song increased its streaming activity by 46 percent. "Feel" remains at No. 4 on Radio Songs having 97 million impressions in an all-genre format and is up slightly by 3 percent. In all, The Weeknd's latest hit becomes his fifth top 5 including three songs that have peaked at No. 1.
Previous single "Starboy" had a rough climb to the top spot on the Hot 100. It was locked in at No. 2 for eight consecutive weeks while The Chainsmokers' "Closer" featuring Halsey dominated the chart. It then saw a path to the No. 1 position as "Closer" slowed but Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles" caught on with the public thanks to the "Mannequin Challenge." "Starboy" finally was able to knock the song down and take over the lead in late December.
Both tracks come from parent album Starboy which spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard Top 200 Albums tally.
