Daniel Caesar’s “Best Part,” featuring H.E.R., rules the June 2020 list.
The fourth and final season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why again launches the show onto The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Songs chart, with Daniel Caesar’s “Best Part,” featuring H.E.R., ruling the June 2020 tally.
Rankings for the Top TV Songs chart are based on song and show data provided by Tunefind and ranked using a formula blending that data with sales and streaming information tracked by Nielsen Music during the corresponding period of June 2020.
Caesar’s “Best Part” reigns after being featured in the series’ penultimate episode, “Prom,” released alongside the rest of the fourth season on June 5. The song racked up 18.2 million on-demand streams and 4,000 digital downloads in June 2020, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
13 Reasons Why led the chart multiple other times while it aired over the years, most recently when Billie Eilish and Khalid’s “Lovely” ruled the May 2018 list. Seven of the April 2017 ranking’s top 10 also came from the series.
“Best Part” reached the Billboard Hot 100 during its original release, peaking at No. 75 in October 2018, Caesar’s highest-charting song on the survey to date.
Tyler Childers’ “Lady May” ranks second after appearing in the second episode of Yellowstone‘s third season, which premiered on June 28.
“Lady May,” the closing track on Childers’ 2017 album, Purgatory, scored 7.5 million on-demand streams and 6,000 downloads in June 2020. Its download count toward the July 11-dated Billboard charts allowed the song to debut at No. 11 on the Country Digital Song Sales list and at No. 44 on the all-format Digital Song Sales tally with 4,000 downloads in the tracking week ending July 2.
