At the onset of the latest Billboard sales and streaming tracking week, Backstreet Boys performed a mini-concert on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
By the end of the week, the group’s comeback single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” had generated enough activity to reach a new peak on the Billboard Hot 100.
Up nineteen places, the song earns #63 on this week’s edition of the all-genre chart.
In reaching that peak, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” becomes the group’s highest-ranking hit (as a lead act) since 2005’s “Incomplete.” That song, which was a comeback single in its own right, peaked at #13 on the Hot 100.
Since “Incomplete,” the group has only once gone higher than #63 — as a featured act on Florida Georgia Line’s #46-peaking “God, Your Mama, And Me.”
While the “GMA” performance spurred gains on the consumption front, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” is also receiving ample chart points from radio. The song holds Top 20 positions at adult contemporary, hot adult contemporary and pop radio.
