In addition to the single’s No. 24 slot on the Hot 100, Headline Planet reports it’s at No. 18 on Streaming Songs and No. 22 on Digital Songs.

These high positions are also echoed on Billboard’s dance-specific charts. “Where Are Ü Now” is at No. 3 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs, No. 3 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs, and remains at No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Streaming Songs chart.
The Associated Press reports the single was the sixth most streamed track on Spotify in the U.S. between May 4 to May 10. During that same period, it became the sixth highest streamed track in the UK, and seventh globally.
Before Bieber’s performance at 102.7 KIIS FM’s Wango Tango all-day concert in Carson, California, on May 9, the singer told hosts that he visited a studio with Skrillex the “other night” (May 5 and since), and that his upcoming album will “possibly” include more Jack Ü collaborations.
During the sit-down, Bieber also revealed the origins story of “Where Are Ü Now.”
“The song was actually just me and a piano, and then Skrillex came in and did his stuff,” he recalled. “Him and Diplo came in and messed up the beat.
The singer said his new album, which is being produced by Kanye West and Rick Rubin, is now at the “final touch stage.”
Footage of the Biebs practicing “Where” backstage before he took to the Wango Tango stage for his first solo comeback show was later posted to the Falho app platform.
