Dua Lipa’s ‘Break My Heart’ Hits No. 1 on Pop Songs Chart

Dua Lipa’s “Break My Heart” rises to No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Songs radio airplay chart (dated Aug. 1).

It’s her third leader on the list, following “Don’t Start Now,” which reigned for six weeks beginning in February, and “New Rules,” which led for four weeks in 2018.

The Pop Songs chart ranks songs by weekly plays on a panel of over 160 mainstream top 40-formatted radio stations, as monitored by Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

Both “Break My Heart” and “Don’t Start Now” are from the English singer-songwriter’s second LP, Future Nostalgia. With the set released on Warner Records, it becomes the first on the label by a woman to spin off a pair of Pop Songs No. 1s since the chart began in 1992.

Also notably, two of the writers on “Break My Heart” (among seven, a total that includes Lipa) are Andrew Farriss and the late Michael Hutchence, formerly of INXS, as the song interpolates the band’s classic “Need You Tonight,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1988.

All charts (dated Aug. 1) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (July 28).
