Post Malone’s ‘Goodbyes’ Says Hello to No. 1 on Rhythmic Songs Chart
Post Malone collects his sixth career No. 1 on the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart as “Goodbyes,” featuring Young Thug, rises 2-1 on the chart dated Sept. 21. The single ascends through a 6% boost in plays in the week ending Sept. 15, according to Nielsen Music.
Before “Goodbyes,” Post Malone earned his first Rhythmic champ through “White Iverson,” which ruled for one week, followed by, in order, “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage (six), “Psycho,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign (four), “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse),” with Swae Lee (four), and “Wow.” (five).
Young Thug, meanwhile, nabs his second Rhythmic No. 1. He featured on Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” a three-week champ in early 2018.
“Goodbyes,” “Sunflower” and “Wow.” all appear on Post Malone’s third and most recent studio album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, released Sept. 6. The trio makes Bleeding the first album to house three Rhythmic No. 1s since Drake’s Scorpion spawned leaders in “God’s Plan” (six weeks), “Nice for What” (six) and “In My Feelings” (four) last year.
Gains at Rhythmic radio help “Goodbyes” retain its No. 9 standing on the all-genre Radio Songs chart. There, the track picks up a 9% bump to 65.8 million in audience in the week ending Sept. 15.
Bleeding, meanwhile, generates its own chart headlines as it debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts with 489,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Sept. 12. On the latter, the set secures Post Malone’s third straight leader after 2016’s Stoney and 2018’s beerbongs & bentleys.
Bleeding’s impact spills over to the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where four of its songs reside in the top 10. “Goodbyes” leads the club with a 6-2 surge and matches its peak, which it achieved upon its debut on the July 20-chart. Album cuts “Enemies,” featuring DaBaby and “Saint Tropez,” start at Nos. 9 and 10, respectively.
In addition, “Sunflower” posts a record-extending 46th week in the top 10 as it climbs 7-5. The song surpassed The Weeknd’s “The Hills” and its 44-week stint for the all-time mark on the chart dated Sept. 14.
Below the top 10, four more Bleeding cuts enter Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs: “Die For Me,” featuring Future and Halsey (No. 11), “On The Road,” featuring Meek Mill and Lil Baby (No. 13), “I Know” (No. 24), Internet (No. 25).
