Two high-profile collaborations launched at the onset of the most recent chart tracking week.

Both, predictably, debut prominently on the Billboard Hot 100.

Gesaffelstein & The Weeknd’s “Lost In The Fire,” the higher-charting of the two, makes its Hot 100 bow at #27.

Sam Smith & Normani’s “Dancing With A Stranger” closely follows at #33.

The Hot 100 ranks songs based on sales, streams and radio airplay. Both songs actually received a considerable amount of opening week airplay, but sales and streams still made the bigger contribution to this week’s chart positions.
