Following its first full week in the market, Sugarland’s new single “Babe (featuring Taylor Swift)” grabs a spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Babe” starts at #72 on this week’s listing, which ranks songs from all genres based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.
Sales made the greatest contribution; “Babe” actually debuts at #2 on the all-genre Digital Song Sales Chart.
— “Babe” meanwhile rises forty places to #8 on the Hot Country Songs chart, which ranks country songs using the Hot 100 methodology. It debuted last week based exclusively on its first few days of airplay.
The collaboration, which appears on Sugarland’s forthcoming album “Bigger,” is the follow-up to comeback single “Still The Same.”
