'AT40' Recap: There's a New #1 on the Chart This Week

This week we say goodbye to Halsey's latest hit "Nightmare." The track spent 10 weeks on the chart, originally debuting back in June and peaking at #13 last month.

And Sam Smith scores this week's only debut with “How Do You Sleep?” Jesse McCartney hit #6 back in 2009 with his track with the exact same title.

There’s a 2-way tie for the fastest riser. "Beautiful People" by Ed Sheeran featuring Khalid lands at #18 this week and “The Git Up” by Blanco Brown lands at #25, both songs leaping 12 spots.

How far will these songs rise? We'll find out in the weeks to come!

 

In the Top 3, Khalid holds for another at #3 with "Talk." While Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber fall to #2 after spending 2 weeks at the top with "I Don't Care," which means there is a new #1!

Drumroll, please...

"bad guy" by Billie Eilish has taken over the top spot. She is the first singer born in the 2000s to score a #1 hit. Tiffany was the first born in the ’70s to score a #1 hit, Britney Spears was the first in the ’80s, and JoJo was the first in the ’90s.
