Jennifer Lopez Lands a Hit With “Booty”; Jeremih’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em” Continues Rise; Plus Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, More

Jennifer Lopez finally gets a hit from her latest studio album A.K.A. Her latest single “Booty,” featuring rapper Iggy Azalea and Pitbull, enters the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 18. Thanks to a huge increase in streaming. “Booty” gives J.Lo her 28th Hot 100 hit and her second highest debut on the coveted chart. According to Billboard, "Booty," easily the highest-charting Hot 100 entry from A.K.A. ("I Luh Ya Papi," featuring French Montana, and "First Love" peaked at Nos. 77 and 87, respectively) marks Lopez's highest rank since "Dance Again," another pairing with Pitbull, reached No. 17 in May 2012.

Jeremih’s R&B hit "Don't Tell 'Em" is also up this week. The club-banger, which features rapper YG, ascends two places for a top 10 position at No. 10. This gives the Chicago crooner his third top 10, following his debut "Birthday Sex" in 2009 and "Down on Me" (featuring 50 Cent) in 2011; both reached No. 4.

Elsewhere on the chart, Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj's "Bang Bang" reaches a new peak (5-3); Minaj's "Anaconda" drops from No. 3 to No. 4; Azalea's "Black Widow," featuring Rita Ora, slips from its No. 4 peak to No. 5; and Sam Smith's No. 2-peaking "Stay With Me" holds at No. 6.
