Halsey’s “Strangers (featuring Lauren Jauregui)” is not — at least not yet — an official radio single.

It is, however, on this week’s edition of the Billboard Hot 100.

The “hopeless fountain kingdom” track claims #100 on the listing, which ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.

Without meaningful activity on the radio front, “Strangers” scores its Hot 100 position based on its opening week sales and streaming levels.

Indicative of its solid sales tally, “Strangers” concurrently debuts at #29 on the Digital Song Sales subchart.

“Strangers” debuted on May 26 as an instant gratification track from Halsey’s album. It received a strong review from Headline Planet.
