Last week on American Top 40, "Let You Down" by NF jumped into the number one position. An interesting note: this is the first number one on American Top 40 since "Give Your Heart A Break" by Demi Lovato in 2012 to hit the top of AT 40, but not hit the top 10 on the Hot 100. While it happens more frequently with number ones on the Hot 100 not hitting AT 40's top 10, I was surprised it had been six years since the last time a number one on AT will not hit the top 10 of the Hot 100 (at least it looks like it will not. It peaked at number 12, and is currently at number 13 without a bullet). Kinda nice to see that: while the Hot 100 and AT 40 will never be the same for obvious reasons, songs that hit number one on AT are seen by Billboard in the present time as big hits. This absolutely was not the case in the past, particularly in the nineties.
Another interesting note: The next number one on AT 40 will probably be G-Eazy & Halsey's "Him & I". It looks like this song will not be hit the top 10 on the Hot 100, either.
