Following in the footsteps of his #4-peaking “Stitches” and #20-peaking Camila Cabello duet “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” Shawn Mendes’ “Treat You Better” enters the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Up fifteen places, the lead “Illuminate” single grabs #20 on this week’s chart.

The Hot 100 ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, airplay and streaming. In addition to respectable sales figures and a solid week of gains at radio, “Treat You Better” received a streaming boost from the mid-week music video release.
