George Ezra’s “Budapest,” Andy Grammer’s “Honey” Go Top 50 on the Hot 100

While the “SNL” performance came late in the tracking week, it still served to put an exclamation point on the song’s momentum.

That momentum–and exclamation point–power George Ezra’s “Budapest” to a new high of #48 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

“Budapest” was already Ezra’s first Hot 100 entry. And thanks to a fourteen place rise on this week’s chart, it is now his first Top 50 hit.

“Budapest” also vaults into the #27 position on Billboard’s Digital Songs subchart.

In addition to “Budapest” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Throw Sum Mo,” the Top 50 also welcomes a newcomer in Andy Grammer’s “Honey, I’m Good.” The song jumps six places to a new peak of #50 on this week’s chart.
