In conjunction with its debut on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, Steven Tyler’s new country single “Love is Your Name” reaches the all-encompassing Billboard Bubbling Under chart.
The chart, which lists the top songs that have yet to debut on the actual Billboard Hot 100, positions “Love is Your Name” at #15 this week.
Because this week’s chart bow was aided by initial excitement over the single, exposure during the “American Idol” finale and early, promotional support at radio, “Love is Your Name” may have trouble matching this week’s performance next week — let alone expanding upon it. It is not expected to imminently reach the actual Billboard Hot 100.
If it does ultimately get there, it would become his first entry since 2011’s “(It) Feels So Good.”
In addition to landing on the all-genre Bubbling Under chart, “Love is Your Name” also debuts at #27 on Hot Country Songs. It, obviously, ranks as Tyler’s first entry on that chart.
