Kane Brown’s “What Ifs” Remains #1 On Hot Country Songs; “Heaven” Earns #10

Kane Brown has the hottest song in country music — and another song in the Top 10.

Last week, Kane Brown’s “What Ifs (Featuring Lauren Alaina)” reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

This week, it keeps that crown.

The chart ranks country songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay. “What Ifs” is a strong performer in all three regards.

In conjunction with its second week at #1 on Hot Country Songs, it rises to #1 on Country Airplay and holds at #1 on Country Streaming Songs. It does, however, slip to #3 on Country Digital Song Sales.

Sam Hunt’s former #1 “Body Like A Back Road” holds at #2 on this week’s Hot Country Songs chart. Luke Combs’ “When It Rains It Pours” holds at #3, while Thomas Rhett’s “Unforgettable” rises one place to #4. Dustin Lynch’s “Small Town Boy” falls a spot to #5.

— In addition to claiming the top spot on this week’s Hot Country Songs chart, Kane Brown also has the top debut. His “Heaven” enters at #10 on this week’s chart.

It also earns #1 on the Country Digital Song Sales chart.
