‘FourFiveSeconds’ enters Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100February 11, 2015
As ‘Uptown Funk!’ leads for a sixth week, the all-star trio vaults with ‘FourFiveSeconds’ and Goulding soars with ‘Love Me Like You Do.’
The week’s other notable highlights in the top center on the region’s two new entrants, led by Rihanna, West and McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds,” which vaults 15-6. Helping fuel the song’s surge: the premiere of its official video on Feb. 3 and the trio’s performance of it on the 57th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday (Feb. 8) (which likely swelled sales further just before the closing of the Nielsen tracking week that night; following a full week of sales, ending Feb. 15, the track should continue to gain in downloads).
“FourFiveSeconds” jumps 4-3 on Digital Songs (181,000, up 31 percent) and 36-22 on Radio Songs (46 million, up 33 percent) and enters Streaming Songs at No. 34 (3.8 million, up 830 percent, good for top Streaming Gainer honors on the Hot 100).
