Selena Gomez Scores Second Pop Songs No. 1 With 'Same Old Love'
Selena Gomez observes her second No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs airplay chart (dated Jan. 23), as Same Old Love grows 2-1. The single follows her previous hit Good for You (featuring AsAP Rocky), which became her first topper on the tally for two weeks starting Sept. 26. Both tunes are from her record Revival, which arrived atop the Oct. 31 Billboard 200 chart and has sold 268,000 to date, according to Nielsen Music. !
This album in particular was such a transition for me, Gomez said of Revival as she taken her Chart Topper award at the Girls of Billboard in Music festivities. I've a lot more to show.
Same has reached a high of No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, which quantifies all-genre airplay, sales and streaming. Check back later today to see where the tune ranks on the most recent Hot 100, and to learn if Adele's Hello can widen its lead on the Hot 100 previous 10 weeks, or whether Justin Bieber can take over with Sorry after seven straight weeks at No. 2. ( Same dethrones Pitiful after three weeks atop Pop Songs.) All charts will upgrade tomorrow (Jan. 12) on Billboard.com.
Meanwhile, more great news for Gomez on Pop Songs: Same followup Hands to Myself, the third single from Revival, debuts at No. 29. The track is just one of two new entries on the list: Taylor Swift's Out of the Woods roars in at No. 28. Woods is the sixth Pop Songs hit from Swift's album 1989; with the very first five having gone all the way to No. 1, Swift is one leader away from tying Katy Perry's record for the most Pop Songs No. 1s from an album: Perry scored six from Teenage Dream in 2010 12. !
