With his new single, ‘Take My Breath,’ Pop megastar The Weekend takes a rung in the Hot 100’s top 10 for the 13th time in his career.
Released August 6 on the wings of a supercharged ad for the Tokyo Olympics (as we reported here), the Max Martin-produced cut – the first taste of The Weeknd’s yet-titled fifth studio album – raced to the top of real-time digital sales and streaming tallies just hours after its unveiling.
Now, with its inaugural sales tracking week behind it, ‘Breath’ has blasted into the Hot 100’s top 10 the very week its predecessor – the #1 smash ‘Save Your Tears’ – exited the chart region.
Premiering at #6, look below to see the figures that boosted ‘Breath’ to a top 10 entry:
- Streaming: 19.3 million U.S.-based streams
- Digital Downloads: 18,000 sold
- Radio Airplay: 30.7 million audience impressions
‘Breath’ brings the GRAMMY winner’s top 10 career total to 13 – a personal record that stems back to 2014 with the #7 peak of his first Arianna Grande-shared hit, ‘Love Me Harder.’
