Hot 100: Adele, Sia & Sean Paul, Zara Larsson & MNEK Score Debuts This Week

Adele [CBS]

Adele’s Grammy Awards number, Sia’s new single, and Zara Larsson & MNEK’s sizzling international hit are among the debuts on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

Adele’s “All I Ask,” which was aided by a mid-week performance at the Grammy Awards and a late-week performance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” starts at #77 on this week’s chart. The “25” track is not a radio single or on the gamut of streaming networks; its position is driven by sales.

Sia’s “Cheap Thrills (featuring Sean Paul)” launches at #81 on this week’s chart. The song impacts the pop radio format this week.

In conjunction with its soaring radio presence — as well as growing sales and streaming strength — Larsson & MNEK’s “Never Forget You” grabs #83 on the Hot 100. It is the first Hot 100 entry for either artist.
