Sam Smith's "To Die For" is off to a terrific start this week. The song scores a rare triple HitPredictor, at Top 40, AC and Hot AC. Meanwhile, Pop Smoke, the rising hip-hop artist who was tragically murdered only last week, earns a double HitPredictor with "Dior," at Rhythmic and Urban. And "Intentions" by Justin Bieber nabs its second award, at Rhythmic, after a win at Top 40 last week.
