Hot 100: Descendants’ “Rotten to the Core” Debuts in Top 40; “If Only” Starts at #99

Disney’s “Descendants” generated enough first week interest to claim #1 on the Billboard 200 and Billboard Top Album Sales chart.

Its presence is also felt on this week’s edition of the Billboard Hot 100.

Fueled by stellar streaming and sales, two individual tracks arrive on that all-encompassing chart. An additional three appear on the “Bubbling Under Hot 100” listing.

The highest-charting of the bunch is “Rotten to the Core.” Credited to Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Booboo Stewart and Sofia Carson, “Rotten” starts at #38 on this week’s Hot 100. It concurrently debuts at #20 on the Streaming Songs subchart and #33 on the Digital Songs (sales) subchart

Dove Cameron’s “If Only,” which also appears on the “Descendants” soundtrack, claims #99 on this week’s edition of the overall Hot 100.

— While they did not generate enough interest to appear on the Hot 100, three additional “Descendants” songs appear on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 listing. That chart features the Top 25 songs that have yet to reach the actual Hot 100.

Jeff Lewis and Mitchell Hope’s “Did I Mention” claims #11 on this week’s Bubbling Under chart. Kristin Chenoweth and Dove Cameron’s “Evil Like Me” takes #14, while Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Cameron Boyce, Booboo Stewart, Mitchell Hope, Sarah Jeffrey, and Jeff Lewis’ “Set it Off” is #17.
