Billboard, powered by Twitter and sponsored by Capital One, Hot Trending Songs charts track real-time global music-related trends and conversations on Twitter, viewable over the past 24 hours or seven days. A weekly 20-position version of the chart, covering activity from Friday to Thursday each week, publishes alongside Billboard‘s other weekly charts on Billboard.com every Tuesday. The charts highlight the buzz around new releases, award shows, festival moments, musical nostalgia and more. Hot Trending Songs is unique in that it tracks the songs people are talking about, not necessarily what they’re listening to.
Elsewhere on Hot Trending Songs, SEVENTEEN’s “Darl + ing” debuted at No. 4. It earned the South Korean group their second chart entry, following November’s “Rock With You.” As the latter entered at No. 2, SEVENTEEN becomes the only act to debut with multiple songs in the top five, dating back to the chart’s launch in October. “Dar + ling” is SEVENTEEN’s first English-language song and is set to appear on the group’s fourth album, due out in May.
BamBam’s new track “Wheels Up”, featuring Mayzin, debuts at No. 13 on Hot Trending Songs, marking the Thai rapper’s third entry, following “Who Are You”, featuring Red Velvet’s Seulgi, and “Slow Mo “. BamBam debuted the new track during halftime of the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers game in San Francisco on April 7. The song sparked Oakland rapper Mayzin’s first visit to the charts.
Additionally, South Korea’s DREAMCATCHER marks their first entry on Hot Trending Songs, as “House” opens at No. 17. The group performed the song on South Korea’s MBC program M Show Champion April 20.
