"Trouble's Coming" by U.K. duo Royal Blood is a double HitPredictor this week, at Alternative and Active Rock. And two songs increase their number of awards: "Levitating" by Dua Lipa picks up its second, at Hot AC, after winning at Top 40 last week; and "Diamonds" by Sam Smith earns its third honor, at AC, after previous wins at Top 40 and Hot AC. Meanwhile, "Dynamite" by BTS, which was Proven last week at Top 40, crosses the one million mark in digital single sales, the first single to do so since "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X.
