Don’t call it a flop!
After weeks of ample teasing, September 13 saw ‘Don’t Call Me Angel’ – the lead single from the Ariana Grande-curated soundtrack of the 2019 ‘Charlie’s Angels’ reboot – take flight on digital and streaming platforms. Aided by a high octane, Hannah Lux Davis-directed music video, the song soared to the top of iTunes sales charts just hours after its premiere (a success that was mirrored on Spotify charts as well).
By the end of its inaugural tracking week, Billboard reported:
“The song starts at No. 2 on the Digital Song Sales chart, with 26,000 downloads sold, and No. 11 on Streaming Songs, with 26.3 million U.S. streams, in the week ending Sept. 19, according to Nielsen Music. It also drew 7.5 million airplay audience impressions in the week ending Sept. 22…”
The handsome combo of streaming, digital downloads, and radio airplay helped lift the tune to a #13 debut. A promising start, look inside to see who joins the trio in the top 25 on this week’s edition of the TGJ Chart Check:

‘Angel’ is Grande’s seventh top 15 hit this year alone. A leader among women, the accomplishment ties her with Post Malone who has also notched 7 top 15 hits since January 1 (as of time reported).
