'Roxanne' roars from No. 12 to No. 5.

Post Malone tallies a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Circles," which takes over as the top-selling song in the U.S. after the singer-songwriter and rapper performed it on the American Music Awards on Nov. 24.

Plus, Arizona Zervas' debut hit "Roxanne" soars from No. 12 to No. 5 on the Hot 100, as it remains the most-streamed song in the country.

Let's run down the top 10 on the Hot 100 (dated Dec. 7), which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Dec. 3).

"Circles," released on Republic Records, blasts from No. 6 to No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart, surging by 45% to 20,000 sold in the week ending Nov. 28, according to Nielsen Music. It rises 5-3 on Streaming Songs, up 5% to 24.6 million U.S. streams in the same span, while keeping at No. 3 on Radio Songs, with 90.6 million audience impressions, essentially even week-over-week, in the week ending Dec. 1.

Helping spark its gains, Post Malone performed "Circles" in a medley with "Take What You Want" (with Ozzy Osbourne, Travis Scott and Watt) on the AMAs, which aired live on Nov. 24 on ABC. Both songs are from Post Malone's LP Hollywood's Bleeding, which won for favorite album – rap/hip-hop that night.

With "Circles," Post Malone adds his fourth Digital Song Sales No. 1, after "Rockstar," featuring 21 Savage, ruled for a week in October 2017, "Psycho," featuring Ty Dolla $ign, led for two weeks beginning in March 2018 and "Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)," with Swae Lee, reigned for three frames in January.

Lewis Capaldi's "Someone You Loved" holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100, after the ballad logged three weeks at No. 1. It becomes his first No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart (after topping the Adult Pop Songs and Pop Songs airplay tallies for seven and three weeks, respectively).

Lizzo's "Good as Hell" spends a second week at its No. 3 Hot 100 best, as it adds a fifth week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B Songs chart and a third frame atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (both of which employ the same multi-metric methodology as the Hot 100), as well as a second week at No. 1 on Radio Songs (97.4 million, up 4%).

Maroon 5's "Memories" is steady at its No. 4 Hot 100 high, as it becomes the band's record-extending 14th No. 1 on Adult Pop Songs.

Arizona Zervas' breakthrough hit "Roxanne" bounds from No. 12 to No. 5 on the Hot 100, as it tallies a second week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs (36.6 million, up 22%), rises 42-33 on Digital Song Sales (5,000, up 12%) and pushes closer to Radio Songs (15.2 million, up 65%).

The track reaches the Hot 100's top 10 in its fourth week on the survey, after it debuted at No. 34 on the chart dated Nov. 16. Upon its entrance, the song was self-released, before Zervas signed with Columbia Records.

"Roxanne" concurrently becomes Zervas' first No. 1 on the multi-metric Hot Rap Songs chart. (The song by the Maryland native is not a remake of The Police's "Roxanne," the band's first Hot 100 hit that reached No. 32 in 1979.)

Selena Gomez's "Lose You to Love Me" dips 5-6 on the Hot 100, after becoming her first No. 1, while becoming her eighth top 10 on Radio Songs (13-9; 62.2 million, up 16%).

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello's former Hot 100 No. 1 "Señorita" descends 6-7 and Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber's "10,000 Hours" rises 9-8, after debuting at its No. 4 peak. The latter leads the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart for an eighth week.

As Post Malone did, Gomez, Mendes, Cabello and Dan + Shay also all shone in the AMAs spotlight on Nov. 24. Gomez performed "Lose" (in a medley with her fellow new song "Look at Her Now"); Mendes and Cabello sang "Señorita," which also won for collaboration of the year; and Dan + Shay claimed the award for favorite duo or group – country.

Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, Lizzo's former seven-week No. 1 "Truth Hurts" rebounds 10-9 (after she performed her song "Jerome" on the AMAs) and Chris Brown's "No Guidance," featuring Drake, falls 7-10, after reaching No. 5.

Just outside the Hot 100's top 10, Tones and I's "Dance Monkey" leaps 19-11, DaBaby's "Bop" jumps 18-12, Mustard's "Ballin'," featuring Roddy Ricch, rises 20-16 and Mariah Carey's 1994 seasonal classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You" dashes 31-18.
