Sabrina Carpenter Is First Artist With Two Pop Airplay No. 1s This Year, Thanks to ‘Espresso’

Sabrina Carpenter scores her second No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Airplay chart as “Espresso” bubbles up to the survey’s top spot.


The song, released on Island Records and promoted to radio by Republic, rules the July 13-dated chart with a 3% gain in plays June 28-July 4. (The list ranks songs by weekly plays on over 150 mainstream top 40 radio stations monitored by Mediabase, with data provided to Billboard by Luminate.)

Carpenter first led Pop Airplay with “Feather” for a week in April – and becomes the first artist with at least two No. 1s on the tally in 2024. Last year, one artist notched two new chart-toppers at the format: Taylor Swift, with “Karma” and “Cruel Summer.” (Carpenter opened on the South American run of Swift’s The Eras Tour in August-November 2023 and rejoined the tour this February-March for dates in Australia and Singapore.)

Additionally, Carpenter is the first artist signed to Island to collect two Pop Airplay No. 1s in the same year since 2005, when Mariah Carey reigned with “We Belong Together” and “Shake It Off.”

As previously reported, “Espresso” has topped both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts and reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100.


Meanwhile, Carpenter scores the Pop Airplay chart’s Greatest Gainer for a second week as “Please Please Please” leaps 24-18 (up 72%) in its second week on the list. The song (notably, edited for radio) became her first No. 1 on the Hot 100 dated June 29.

“Espresso” and “Please Please Please” introduce Carpenter’s album Short n’ Sweet, due Aug. 23. She’s set to begin her 29-date Short n’ Sweet Tour Sept. 23 in Columbus, Ohio.

All charts dated July 13 will update Tuesday, July 9, on
