Single Sales: Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” Debuts with 38K

Far from a blockbuster, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Like You” earned enough first week interest to land at #48 on the Billboard Hot 100.

That interest manifested in 38,000 US single sales and 3.9 million US streams.

The former figure positions “I Really Like You” at #31 on Billboard’s Digital Songs subchart. The latter earns the song a #33 ranking on Streaming Songs.

“I Really Like You” instantly establishes itself as Jepsen’s second-highest charting solo release on all three of the aforementioned charts. “Call Me Maybe,” the leader, reached #1 on the Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts and #13 on Streaming Songs (the chart was not introduced until after “Call Me Maybe” had peaked).

Radio airplay did not make a significant contribution to the song’s first week performance; “I Really Like You” formally goes for adds on March 24, and it has not commanded much early airplay.
