Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani, Ariana Grande, Carrie Underwood Score Hot 100 Debuts

The Voice Coaches [NBC]

In starting at #1, Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop The Feeling” obviously represents the highest charting debut entry on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

It is not the only new addition to the chart. Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s “Go Ahead And Break My Heart,” Ariana Grande’s “Into You” and Carrie Underwood’s “Church Bells” also make their inaugural Hot 100 appearances this week.

Shelton and Stefani’s duet, which appears on the former’s forthcoming album “If I’m Honest,” starts at #70 on this week’s chart. The position is primarily attributable to sales; “Go Ahead And Break My Heart” concurrently takes #12 on the Digital Songs chart. It also ranks as the week’s second-best-selling new release and the week’s second-best-selling country song.

Grande’s “Into You” claims #83. Like “Go Ahead And Break My Heart,” it primarily owes its position to sales. “Into You” was released as an instant gratification from Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” album at the start of the relevant tracking week. It will soon be promoted to radio as an official single.

“Church Bells,” Underwood’s latest single, debuts at #90 on this week’s Hot 100.
