Aided by the release of the music video, Kehlani’s “Distraction” earns a spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

The single grabs #85 on this week’s edition of the chart, which ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and airplay.

“Distraction” is the third Kehlani song to debut on the Hot 100 this year. She previously landed on the chart with “Gangsta” (#41 peak) and “CRZY” (#85 peak).

— “Distraction” is one of two new Hot 100 entries not from The Weeknd’s “Starboy” or the “Moana” soundtrack.

Noah Cyrus’ “Make Me (Cry) (featuring Labrinth),” the other, begins its Hot 100 run at #98.
