The star-studded collaboration bursts in atop the list & helps Bieber match a chart record.

DJ Khaled storms to his first No. 1 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks (dated May 13) with the appropriately titled “I’m the One,” which features an all-star lineup of collaborators: Justin Bieber, Quavo (of Migos), Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne.

Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks is a weekly ranking of the most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the U.S., ranked by the volume of shares over a seven-day period (Monday to Sunday). The latest chart’s tracking week ended April 30.

“One” was released April 28 alongside its music video, which has blasted to 57 million worldwide views on YouTube through May 4.

In addition to scoring Khaled’s first leader on the Top Tracks list, “One” also marks the first visit to the summit for Quavo (as a solo act) and Chance the Rapper since the chart began in 2014. Lil Wayne, meanwhile, collects his second No. 1 in that span, after sharing a featured role with Drake and Chris Brown on Nicki Minaj’s “Only” in 2014.

For Bieber, “One” adds multiple honors for the pop superstar: He earns a seventh No. 1 on the list, tying One Direction and Ariana Grande for the most leaders in the chart’s brief history (it launched in June of 2014). Before “One,” his most recent appearance at the summit was…last week (May 6-dated list), as featured on “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee.  With “One” replacing “Despacito,” which drops 1-2, Bieber replaces himself at No. 1 for a second time. He first pulled off the feat when “Sorry” bumped “Love Yourself” atop the list dated Jan. 30, 2016. The only other act to self-replace twice at No. 1 is Zayn, who pulled off three in-a-row, when “It’s You,” “Like I Would” and “Befour” succeeded to the top in that order last year.

"One" last note for the collab: It's expected to make a strong debut on the next installment of the Billboard Hot 100, with a potential shot at No. 1. The chart's top 10 is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard's website and social platforms on Monday (April 8).

SZA Starts: Meanwhile, singer SZA arrives at No. 3 on the new Top Tracks chart with “Love Galore,” featuring Travis Scott, easily claiming her highest rank among five entries to date. The song debuted after Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffifth, the president of SZA’s record label, Top Dawg Entertainment, tweeted a Soundcloud link on April 27, saying “yall been killing me for it, yall been waiting and been begging for it.” The track’s official video followed the next day and has collected 265,000 worldwide plays on YouTube through May 4.

Mucho Migos: Besides his appearance on “I’m The One,” Quavo plays a role in another debut this week, as Katy Perry’s “Bon Appetit” featuring Migos starts at No. 13. The song follows Perry’s “Chained to the Rhythm,” which debuted and peaked in February. Another Migos member, Offset, also makes a solo appearance on Top Tracks this week, debuting at No. 36 with “Monday.”

And Now… HAIM: Plus, HAIM darts to a No. 20 start for “Right Now” after a live video rendition, directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, was released on April 27. (Notably, the song is not yet available for commercial or audio-only streaming consumption.) The clip has climbed to 1.2 million worldwide YouTube views. The song previews the pop-rock band’s second studio album, Something to Tell You, due July 7.
