“Youth (featuring Khalid),” the recently released instant gratification track from Shawn Mendes’ forthcoming album, earns a spot on this week’s Billboard Hot 100.

Specifically, “Youth” grabs #65 on the listing.

The Hot 100 ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.

As it not yet a radio single, it received virtually no airplay this past week. Its activity came entirely from sales and streams.

The sales activity is actually enough for a #20 bow on this week’s Digital Song Sales subchart.
