Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” Soars to #3 On Billboard Hot 100!

3 07 2013

Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” charges 5-3 as the Hot 100’s top Digital Gainer. It rises 6-2 on Hot Digital Songs (209,000, up 30%) after a 74% gain (to 161,000) last week following the song’s video premiere on June 19. “Stop” holds at No. 1 on Streaming Songs (8 million, down 16%; the clip’s arrival spurred a 471% streaming increase a week ago). Radio could determine the song’s staying power, and its No. 62 bow on Hot 100 Airplay (20 million, up 60%) is a positive sign for its fortunes. It pushes 27-24 in its fourth week on the Mainstream Top 40 airplay chart with the format’s fourth-best gain in plays (up 50%).

With its 5-3 advance, “Stop” becomes Cyrus’ second-highest-charting Hot 100 hit, bested only by “Party in the U.S.A.,” which spent three weeks at No. 2 in 2009. “Stop” passes her No. 4-peaking “The Climb” (also in 2009).
