Currently #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” is proving to be a monster success. It is not the only successful release from the “50 Shades of Grey” soundtrack.

The Weeknd’s “Earned It” is enjoying a nice run of its own, and it rises to #12 on this week’s edition of the all-encompassing Hot 100.

It was #29 on last week’s chart.

“Earned It” is one of two additions to this week’s Top 15. Taylor Swift’s “Style,” which was #18 on last week’s chart, claims the #10 spot this week.

It is one of four The Weeknd songs on the chart. The artist also appears at #27 with “Love Me Harder (with Ariana Grande),” #61 with “Often” and #95 with “Where You Belong.”
