Lambert & Underwood: Hit Video 'Something Bad' Is On the Rise

According to Billboard.com, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood's "Somethin' Bad" vaults to top Streaming Gainer honors. The track also flies to the top of Country Streaming Songs with a 506 percent gain to 4.2 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen BDS, after its official video premiered on June 26.

While streaming accounts for 50 percent of its Hot Country Songs chart points, "Bad" also gains in sales and airplay. It bounds 10-4 on Country Digital Songs (60,000 downloads sold, up 86 percent, according to Nielsen SoundScan), marking its best rank and sales sum since it debuted atop the sales tally dated June 7 - after Lambert and Underwood had premiered the duet on the Billboard Music Awards (May 18). On Country Airplay, "Bad" bullets for a second week at its No. 25 highpoint so far (15 million impressions, up 12 percent).

"Bad" is Underwood's 13th Hot Country Songs No. 1 and first since "Good Girl" in June 2012 (and first since the chart switched from an airplay-only methodology to encompassing airplay, sales and streaming). It's Lambert's fifth. It's the chart's first No. 1 featuring a female artist since Lambert and Keith Urban's "We Were Us" led for three weeks in November/December (her most recent No. 1 before "Bad").

How rare is it for solo women to team up for a Hot Country Songs No. 1? It had happened only twice before since Billboard launched its first multi-metric-based country chart in October 1958: Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris led the May 16, 1987, list with "To Know Him Is to Love Him," and Reba McEntire and Linda Davis spent a week at No. 1 with "Does He Love You" (Nov. 6, 1993; Davis is the mother of Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, who was seven years old at the time).
