Camila Cabello leads four new tunes in the top 40 with “Don’t Go Yet”, which bows way up at #30 after only two days of airplay. This is her 15th top 40 entry outside of Fifth Harmony and the first from her upcoming album Familia. The second posthumous top 40 single for Pop Smoke is “Demeanor”, which debuts at #37.
