Maroon 5 and Cardi B Rule Billboard Hot 100 For Sixth Week, Post Malone and Swae Lee Debut in Top 10

Posted by ibrahimsinger80yvcdnl on

Maroon 5's "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, spends a sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Nov. 3), fending off a challenge from Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode," which charges from No. 7 to No. 2 following the arrival of its official video.

Plus, Post Malone and Swae Lee debut at No. 9 with "Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)."

Let's run down the top 10 on the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data. All charts will update on tomorrow (Oct. 30).

MAGIC!-al run: With a sixth week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, "Girls" boasts the longest reign by a group (of at least three members) in over four years, since MAGIC!'s "Rude" also led for six weeks, beginning July 26, 2014.

The last such longer run at No. 1? By, guess who: Maroon 5's own "One More Night" led for nine weeks beginning Sept. 29, 2012.

Ties for longest-leading radio hit since 2005: "Girls" leads the Radio Songs chart for a 14th week, with 116.1 million in audience, down 3 percent, in the week ending Oct. 28, according to Nielsen Music.

"Girls" ties Alicia Keys' "No One," in 2007-08, for the second-longest Radio Songs command this century (and continues as the longest-leading No. 1 by a group this century), after Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" in 2005. Since the chart launched in December 1990, "Girls" moves into a fourth-place tie for the most time on top:

Longest-Leading Radio Songs No. 1s
Weeks at No. 1, Title, Artist, Date Reached No. 1
18, "Iris," Goo Goo Dolls, Aug. 1, 1998
16, "We Belong Together," Mariah Carey, May 28, 2005
16, "Don't Speak," No Doubt, Dec. 7, 1996
14, "Girls Like You," Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B, Aug. 4, 2018
14, "No One," Alicia Keys, Nov. 3, 2007
14, "Because You Loved Me," Celine Dion, April 13, 1996
13, "No Scrubs," TLC, March 20, 1999
13, "I Love You Always Forever," Donna Lewis, Aug. 24, 1996
13, "One Sweet Day," Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men, Dec.  9, 1995
13, "The Sign," Ace of Base, Feb. 26, 1994
13, "End of the Road," Boyz II Men, Aug. 22, 1992

"Girls" holds at No. 9 on Digital Song Sales, with 17,000 downloads sold, down 18 percent, in the week ending Oct. 25, after leading the list for six weeks, and dips 11-12 on Streaming Songs (24.5 million U.S. streams, down 3 percent, in the week ending Oct. 25), where it reached No. 5.

"Sicko" move: Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode" surges 7-2 on the Hot 100, following the Oct. 19 premiere of its official video, besting its prior No. 4 peak set upon its Aug. 18 debut. Scott matches his best Hot 100 rank, after his featured turn, with Offset, on Kodak Black's "Zeze," which debuted at No. 2 a week ago and this week falls to No. 6 (while holding at No. 1 on Streaming Songs; 42.2 million, down 11 percent).

"Sicko" (which features Drake's vocals, although he's not credited as an artist on the song; he's also in the new video) jumps 5-2, returning to its highpoint, on Steaming Songs, up 41 percent to 38.5 million, good for top Steaming Gainer honors on the Hot 100. The track pushes 13-11 on Radio Songs (58.2 million, up 16 percent) and 22-14 on Digital Song Sales (14,000, up 37 percent).

Maroon 5's "Girls" narrowly defends its Hot 100 crown, despite declining by 5 percent, while  "Sicko" gains by 30 percent.

Meanwhile, "Sicko" hits No. 1 for the first time on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.

Juice WRLD's "Lucid Dreams" holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100 after reaching No. 2. As previously reported, the rapper's collaborative album with Future, Future & Juice WRLD Present... Wrld On Drugs, launches at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 (as Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's A Star Is Born soundtrack leads the list for a third week).

Rock on: Marshmello and Bastille's "Happier" hits the Hot 100's top five, lifting 6-4, as it pushes 5-4 on Digital Song Sales (26,000, up 11 percent); 9-5 on Radio Songs (74.6 million, up 21 percent), adding the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for a fifth straight week; and 14-13 on Streaming Songs (21.7 million, up 5 percent).

As pointed out by insightful chart watcher Tim Briody, "Happier" holds at its No. 3 high on Alternative Songs and becomes the first hit that has charted on Alternative Songs to make its first appearance in the Hot 100's top five this year. It's the first song to achieve the feat since Imagine Dragons' "Thunder," which peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100 last December (becoming the fourth such hit of 2017).

"Happier" spends a fifth week at No. 1 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

Post Malone's "Better Now" slips 4-5 on the Hot 100, after hitting No. 3; as noted above, "Zeze" descends 2-6; 5 Seconds of Summer's "Youngblood" rebounds to its No. 7 high from No. 9; and, Lil Baby and Gunna's "Drip Too Hard" keeps at No. 8 following its No. 4 peak.

Web gem: Post Malone and Swae Lee spin their way to a No. 9 Hot 100 debut with "Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)." Following its first full week of tracking, it enters Digital Song Sales at No. 6 (24,000) and Streaming Songs at No. 8 (24.2 million), while sporting 13.2 million in airplay audience.

Post Malone adds his fifth Hot 100 top 10 (and fourth to debut in the region) and Swae Lee scores his second, following French Montana's "Unforgettable," on which he's featured (No. 3, August 2017). (Rae Sremmurd, of which Swae Lee is half, with brother Slim Jxmmi, has also charted in the tier, with the seven-week No. 1 "Black Beatles," featuring Gucci Mane, in 2016-17.)

"Sunflower" is the first single from the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack, due Dec. 14, the day that the film (featuring the voices of Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld and Mahershala Ali, among others) opens nationwide. The song is the second Hot 100 top 10 from a Spider-Man soundtrack, and the first in 16 years; Chad Kroeger's "Hero," featuring Josey Scott, from Music from and Inspired by Spider-Man, hit No. 3 in July 2002.

Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, Khalid and Normani's "Love Lies" returns to the bracket (14-10), after reaching No. 9 (Sept. 8).

Just beyond the Hot 100's top 10, DJ Snake's "Taki Taki," featuring Selena Gomez, Ozuna and Cardi B, jumps 16-11, as it returns for a third week atop Hot Latin Songs; Halsey's "Without Me" bounds 23-12 on the Hot 100, as the chart's top Sales Gainer (27,000 sold, up 27 percent); and, Sheck Wes' "Mo Bamba" hits the top 20 (21-16).
