Sabrina Carpenter’s ‘Please Please Please’ Becomes Her First Billboard Hot 100 No. 1

The song ascends from No. 2 in its second week on the survey.

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Please Please Please” rises to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, a week after it debuted at No. 2. It becomes the first leader on the list for the pop singer-songwriter and actress.

The song, on Island Records and promoted to radio by Republic Records, drew 50.9 million official streams (up 1%) – Carpenter’s best career streaming week for a song – and 3.2 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 502%) and sold 7,000 (down 10%) in the United States in the June 14-20 tracking week, according to Luminate.

“Please Please Please” was released June 7, alongside its official video starring Carpenter’s significant other, Oscar-nominated Barry Keoghan, and she performed it during her set at New York’s Governors Ball the following day. On June 18, acoustic, a cappella, instrumental, sped-up and slowed-down versions of the song were released. On June 20, Carpenter announced her 29-date Short n’ Sweet Tour, set to start Sept. 23 in Columbus, Ohio. (She opened on the South American run of Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour in August-November 2023 and rejoined Swift this February-March for dates in Australia and Singapore.)

The track, along with “Espresso,” at No. 4 on the Hot 100 a week after reaching No. 3, introduces Carpenter’s album Short n’ Sweet, due Aug. 23.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital singles sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites are excluded from chart calculations. All charts (dated June 29, 2024) will update on Tuesday, June 25. For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both X, formerly known as Twitter, and Instagram.
