We’re lining up the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart for the week ending April 22, 2017.
It’s one thing when a song enters the Top Five, but quite another when it debuts in the Top Five. That’s what we’re looking at this week.
Number 5: The Chainsmokers & Coldplay “Something Just Like This”
Let’s start in fifth place, where The Chainsmokers and Coldplay back off two slots with “Something Just Like This.”
Coldplay is touring Asia and just performed in South Korea, where the band honored victims of the Sewol ferry tragedy, South Korea’s worst maritime disaster. On April 16, 2014, the ferry capsized and sank, leaving more than 300 people dead or missing.
Lead singer Chris Martin called for 10 seconds of silence to honor the victims.
