The song, which recently debuted on Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs tally, was featured in an episode of “Legacies.”
Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” isn’t just a recent entrant onto Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs airplay chart — the track is also the No. 1 song on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Songs chart, powered by Tunefind, for March 2019.
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.
“Someone You Loved,” which appears in the 12th episode of the first season of The CW’s Legacies that first aired Feb. 28, bows at No. 1 thanks to 6,000 downloads sold during March 2019, along with 12.4 million streams, according to Nielsen Music.
A hit in multiple countries already, the track has begun its climb in the U.S., debuting at No. 38 on the Adult Pop Songs tally dated April 20.
The No. 2 song, meanwhile, belongs to a track that scored boosts after appearing in episodes of both Grey’s Anatomy and Legacies (as well as ABC singing competition American Idol): Freya Ridings’ “Lost Without You.”
“Lost Without You,” originally released by Ridings in 2017, has been gaining in popularity in recent months Stateside, most recently boosted by its TV show appearances. In March 2019, the track racked up 9,000 downloads and 3.1 million streams.
Like Capaldi’s tune, Ridings’ has also begun to make inroads on U.S. radio, debuting at No. 18 on the Adult Contemporary airplay tally dated April 20.
