Congrats Alessia!

Alessia Cara earns her first airplay No. 1 as her debut single “Here” steps 2-1 on the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart dated Dec. 19 (up three percent in spins during the week ending Dec. 6, according to Nielsen Music). The track spent 17 weeks scaling the chart, after debuting at No. 36 on the Aug. 29-dated list.

The 19-year-old’s breakout R&B/pop hit also continues climbing on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, hopping 10-8 to its new peak. (The Hot 100 blends airplay, sales and streaming data for songs across all genres of music.) The track appears on the singer’s debut album Know-It-All, which slides 32-38 on the Billboard 200, after debuting at No. 9 on the chart dated Dec. 5.

The chart-topping hike marks the fourth artist of 2015 to achieve a Rhythmic Songs with their first charting song, following Natalie La Rose’s “Somebody” featuring Jeremih (April 4), Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” (May 23), and OMI’s “Cheerleader” (Sept. 5.)
