‘Perfect’ Reaching no. 10

With its latest Billboard Hot 100 debut, One Direction bests the group’s British boy band ancestors the Beatles.

As previously reported, One Direction roars to the Hot 100 (dated Nov. 7) at No. 10 with new single “Perfect.” Fueling its start, it begins at No. 2 around the Digital Songs chart with 136,000 bought from its first week, as outlined by Nielsen Music, and No. 18 on Streaming Songs (6.9 million U.S. streams), following arrival of their official video Oct. 20.

Perfect” is 1D’s fifth best debut around the Hot 100, and second looking at the Nov. 13 album Made inside A.M.; “Drag Me Down” debuted and peaked at No. 3 upon its arrival about the Aug. 22. With five, One Direction breaks the record for the most top ten Hot 100 debuts among groups, passing the Beatles’ four. Counting all artists, Taylor Swift has tallied a list 12 best debuts, dating to your Hot 100’s 1958 inception.

Before “Perfect” and “Drag” (the second of which tied the Beatles’ mark), One Direction debuted at No. 3 around the Hot 100 with “Live While We’re Young” (No. 3, Oct. 20, 2012), “Best Song Ever” (No. 2, Aug. 10, 2013) and “Story of My Life” (No. 6, Nov. 16, 2013).

The Beatles launched three of these fab four best Hot 100 debuts within their original historic heyday, and another as a reunited trio (featuring the late John Lennon’s vocals) higher than a quarter-century later: “Hey Jude” (No. 10, Sept. 14, 1968), “Get Back,” with Billy Preston (No. 10, May 10, 1969), “Let It Be” (No. 6, March 21, 1970) and “Free being a Bird” (No. 10, Dec. 30, 1995).

Notably, prior to the adoption of Nielsen Music data from the ’90s, which made top Hot 100 debuts more regular (although still fully laudable), the Beatles boasted really the only such arrivals, with “Jude,” “Back” and “Let.”

1D also launches an additional Hot 100 debut now. Further on the chart, “Home” — a stand-alone track not around the new album — enters at No. 97.
