Daily Numbers’ Thread – 12/20/16

Today’s thread is brought to you by the numbers 1, 6 and 188K.

Zayn debuts a second single into the top 10 of the Hot 100 with his collaboration with Taylor Swift – “I Don’t Wanna Life Forever (Fifty Shades of Darker)”. The song debuts at the top of the sales chart with 188K and 5th on the Hot 100. One factor that prevented it from debuting higher was that it was held off the number one streaming platform, Spotify. It is there now, so expect those streaming numbers to soar.

Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” tops the Hot 100 for an 8th week while the entire top 5 stands firm. Two songs debut in the top 10 this week and that hasn’t happened since Zayn topped the chart earlier this week with “Pillowtalk”. J. Cole has the other debut in the top 10 as he holds spots 1 through 7 on the on-demand chart. Voice coach Adam’s band Maroon 5 takes over the top of the radio chart.
