5 Seconds of Summer’s new “She’s Kinda Hot” posted the third-best-selling US sales total during the July 17-23 tracking week.

According to Nielsen Music, “She’s Kinda Hot” drove 124,000 paid US downloads during its first week of release. Only OMI’s “Cheerleader” (163,000) and Fetty Wap’s “My Way (featuring Monty)” (152,000) drove more weekly sales.

The combination of first-week sales, streaming and radio audience allows the song to reach #22 on this week’s Billboard Hot 100. It instantly becomes the band’s second-highest-charting hit.

Only single “Amnesia,” which reached #16, claims a higher peak.
