“Liability,” the second song released from Lorde’s forthcoming album “Melodrama,” debuts on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

The song takes #78 on this week’s edition of the chart, which ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streaming and radio airplay.

“Liability” was not a factor at radio, but it received a solid amount of opening week sales and streams. A performance on the March 11 “Saturday Night Live” helped boost those metrics.

“Green Light,” the lead radio single from “Melodrama,” is also on this week’s Hot 100. It falls twenty places to #39.
