Ed Sheeran’s #2 “How Would You Feel (Paean)” is not the only “New Music Friday” release with a Top 10 position on the US iTunes sales chart.
“Small Town Boy,” the new cut from country star Dustin Lynch, just entered the region.
Lynch’s single is #10 as of press time at 5PM ET.
In addition to the two Friday releases, two mid-week debuts hold Top 10 positions on the chart. Kygo x Selena Gomez’ “It Ain’t Me,” which debuted on Thursday, is #3 as of press time.
Maroon 5’s “Cold (featuring Future),” which launched Tuesday, is #9.
Another recent release is just outside the Top 10. Linkin Park’s “Heavy (featuring kiiara),” which arrived on the store Thursday, is up to #12 as of press time. The single is receiving out-of-the-gate support at pop and alternative radio.
