As her “Same Old Love” holds at its #6 peak, Selena Gomez’ follow-up single “Hands To Myself” vaults into the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.
Up 23 places, the tune takes #39 on the graph of this week.
The new peak position is chiefly attributable to the tune’s 47,000 weekly US sales ( 95%) and 5 million weekly US streams ( 43%). It really is also beginning to receive radio airplay.
The release of the music video surely assisted the song’s streaming points (and general graph functionality), but the biggest percentage of the tune’s streaming points (46%) came from Spotify. Music video flowing bodies were bottlenecked due to the Apple Music exclusivity.
In spite of the limitation on streaming, the video release nonetheless created buzz for the tune, which in turn resulted in increased sales and audio streams.
