Powered by strong marks in all three Hot 100 categories, Marshmello & Bastille’s “Happier” rises to a new high on the Billboard Hot 100.

Up five places, the song takes #8 on this week’s chart.

“Happier,” as noted, is faring well in the three columns that define Hot 100 placement: sales, streams and radio.

It falls to a still-strong #7 on Digital Song sales, but concurrently rises to #12 on the Streaming Songs and Radio Songs subcharts.

“Happier” is Marshmello’s first Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. It follows the #5-peaking “Pompeii” as the second such hit for Bastille.
