Two songs pick up a second HitPredictor this week: "Prisoner" by Miley Cyrus, at Hot AC (after Top 40); and "Damage" by H.E.R., at Rhythmic (after Urban). Meanwhile, "Therefore I Am" by Billie Eilish was a triple HitPredictor (Top 40, Hot AC & Alternative) and makes it to Proven this week at Top 40. It's top 5 in national callout potential at Top 40, top 10 in digital sales and peaked at #2 in streaming before the onslaught of holiday music took over. Speaking of holidays, this is the last HitPredictor newsletter of 2020. Happy holidays! We'll be back in January.
