Plus, a flashback to one of the biggest hits by 2018 Icon Award winner Janet Jackson ahead of Sunday’s BBMAs.

Welcome to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what’s on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.

This week, Gary and Trevor welcome back Dave and Yael Penn from Hit Songs Deconstructed, as they analyze the compositional characteristics and songwriting and production techniques that helped make Camila Cabello‘s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, a No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit.

“Forget about all the hooks for one second,” Dave muses. “It’s that organic quality about the song, and the way that Cabello connects with it. It’s just natural.”

Plus, chart chat about Childish Gambino‘s “This Is America” and what helped it launch at No. 1 on the Hot 100 this week and a flashback to one of the biggest hits by Janet Jackson, who’s set to receive the prestigious Icon Award at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards Sunday (May 20).
