“Easy on Me” is the first song to lead simultaneously in airplay, streaming and sales since “Despacito” in 2017.
Adele’s new LP 30 ‘Easy on me’ ranks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the biggest song of the week of 2021.
This song is the most-streamed and top-selling piece of the week — and, for the first time, the most-heard hit on the radio. Most importantly, ‘Easy on me’ is the first song to lead in all three platforms simultaneously since “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, in 2017.
“Easy on Me,” was released on Oct. 14 on Columbia Records, drew 93.2 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 11%) and 37.5 million U.S. streams (up 55%, as it claims the Hot 100’s top Streaming Gainer award) and sold 27,600 downloads (up 11%) in the Nov. 19-25 tracking week, according to MRC Data.
“Easy on Me” returns for a fifth week atop the Streaming Songs chart and takes over some of the top Radio Songs, becoming Adele’s fifth No. 1 on the latter ranking. This song has reached Hot 100 No. 1s. on the Radio Songs summit in its sixth week on the chart, tying Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open.” Before both songs, no track had led so quickly since Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” (also six weeks, 2017).
