“Roses” Becomes The Chainsmokers’ Highest-Charting Pop Radio Hit

In reaching #13 on last week’s Mediabase pop radio airplay chart, The Chainsmokers’ “Roses (featuring Rozes)” tied the peak position achieved by the duo’s breakthrough single “#SELFIE.”

In reaching #12 on this week’s chart, “Roses” eclipses that position — and becomes the act’s highest-charting pop radio hit.

The song’s new position is attributable to the ~7,989 plays it received during the December 20-26 tracking week (+362).

— In addition to gaining at pop radio, “Roses” also rises one place to #24 on this week’s rhythmic radio listing.

— While “Roses” has surpassed the “#SELFIE” peak at pop radio, it has not yet done so on the all-encompassing Billboard Hot 100. “#SELFIE” went as high as #16 on that chart; “Roses” is currently #26.
