Hot 100: Beyonce, Ariana, 1R, Luke, Fifth Harmony Debut This Week

While James Newton Howard’s “The Hanging Tree” is commanding the most attention–and highest position (#12)–it is not the only high-profile debut on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

An array of songs from major artists also lands on this week’s edition of the all-encompassing Billboard chart.

Most notably in the mix this week is Beyonce’s “7/11,” which flies into the #18 position.

Not within the top twenty–or top forty–Ariana Grande’s “Santa Tell Me” nonetheless does make a splash on the chart. It arrives at #65 to represent the listing’s next-best new entry.

OneRepublic’s “I Lived” follows closely at #71, while “The Voice” singer Craig Wayne Boyd arrives at #84 via his cover of “I Walk the Line.” Country superstar Luke Bryan then grabs the #89 slot with his new hit “I See You.”

Fifth Harmony’s emerging radio hit “Sledgehammer” lands at #93 with assistance from the launch of its music video, while Pitbull and Ne-Yo’s new “Time of Our Lives” enters at #94.
