As it formally launched on Friday, Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber’s “I Don’t Care” missed the cutoff for the most recent Billboard sales and streaming tracking periods.

It did, however, debut with three days remaining in the radio tracking week. It generated enough activity within those three days to earn a spot on the Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100.

“I Don’t Care” starts at #4 on the chart, which ranks the Top 25 songs that have yet to appear on the actual Hot 100.

The song is sure to cruise to the upper reaches of next week’s Hot 100, which will account for its first full week of sales, streaming and radio tracking.
