The Pop Songs chart, which began in 1992, measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music, among its reporting panel of 164 mainstream top 40 stations.

Lovato previously led the list with “Give Your Heart a Break” on September 15, 2012. Still, in between that hit and “Sorry,” she has scored six top 10s: “Heart Attack” (No. 4, 2013); “Neon Lights” (No. 7, 2014); “Really Don’t Care,” featuring Cher Lloyd (No. 7, 2014); “Cool for the Summer” (No. 3, 2015); “Confident” (No. 9, 2016); and her other current hit, Cheat Codes‘ “No Promises,” on which she’s featured (No. 7, September 30; this week, it dips 8-10).

“Sorry Not Sorry” soars to No. 1 on Pop Songs with the greatest positional leap to the top in nearly three years; Tove Lo‘s “Habits (Stay High)” surged 5-1 on the November 15, 2014, chart. The track also claims the chart’s greatest gain in plays, hiking by 19 percent.

On the all-genre airplay, streaming and sales-based Billboard Hot 100, “Sorry Not Sorry” reached No. 8 (on the October 21-dated chart), marking her highest career rank.

The song is the lead single from her new album, Tell Me You Love Me, which launched at No. 3 on the October 28-dated Billboard 200 after the singer released the LP on September 29.
