BEBE REXHA – “You Can’t Stop The Girl” (Warner)
Album: Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil (Soundtrack) (2019)
Past T40 History: This is Rexha’s second single from a film to impact here; “Home” (from Bright) peaked at #39 in January 2018.

LIAM PAYNE featuring A BOOGIE WIT DA HOODIE – “Stack It Up” (Republic)
