The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Nov. 28) will update on tomorrow (Nov. 24). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

"Mood," released on RECORDS/Columbia Records, and the first Hot 100 No. 1 for both 24kGoldn and Iann Dior, drew 22.3 million U.S. streams (down 12%) and sold 8,000 downloads (down 35%) in the week ending Nov. 19, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also earned 84.5 million radio airplay audience impressions (down 1%) in the week ending Nov. 22.

The track spends a fourth week at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart; dips to No. 2 on Streaming Songs after a week at the summit; and falls 2-5 on Digital Song Sales.

"Mood" tops the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts for a 13th week each and Hot Rap Songs for a sixth frame (with all three charts using the same methodology as the Hot 100). The track concurrently tops the Pop Songs airplay chart for a fifth week, with 17,748 plays among the list's reporting stations in the week ending Nov. 22, the most ever for a song dating to the chart's 1992 inception. It rewrites the mark formerly held by Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" (17,707; April 15, 2017).

Billie Eilish's "Therefore I Am" blasts from No. 94 to No. 2 on the Hot 100 following its first full week of tracking. Released Nov. 12, it debuted on the Hot 100 a week ago via 3.1 million streams and 5,000 downloads sold that day, as well as 11.7 million airplay audience impressions in its first four days, through Nov. 15. In its first full frame of measurement (as reflected on the latest, Nov. 28-dated charts), it drew 24.2 million streams and sold 14,000, while earning 18.3 million in radio audience.

The track debuts at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, where it's Eilish's first leader; jumps 23-2 on Digital Song Sales; and enters Radio Songs at No. 43.

"Therefore I Am" is Eilish's fourth Hot 100 top 10, following "Bad Guy," which topped the chart dated Aug. 24, 2019; "Everything I Wanted" (No. 8, November 2019); and "My Future" (No. 6, this August).

With its 92-position vault, Eilish's new single makes the fourth-greatest leap in the Hot 100's history. Here's a recap.

Meanwhile, with "Mood" at No. 1 and "Therefore I Am" at No. 2, artists born in the 2000s rank in the Hot 100's top two spots simultaneously for the first time. 24kGoldn (real name: Golden Von Jones) was born Nov. 13, 2000, while Eilish was born Dec. 18, 2001. (When "Bad Guy" hit No. 1, Eilish became the first artist born in the 2000s to top the chart. Three artists born this millennium have now led, with Eilish and 24kGoldn joined by Jawsh 685; born, as Joshua Nanai, Nov. 5, 2002, his "Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)," with Jason Derulo, paced the Oct. 17-dated chart, aided by BTS remixes.)

Drake's "Laugh Now Cry Later," featuring Lil Durk, descends 4-5 on the Hot 100, after debuting at its No. 2 peak, and adds a fourth week atop the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart (where it marks Drake's record-setting 21st No. 1), while Justin Bieber's "Holy," featuring Chance the Rapper rises 7-6 on the Hot 100, after debuting at its No. 3 high.

The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" backtracks 5-7 on the Hot 100, after spending four weeks at No. 1. It banks a record 40th week in the top 10, breaking a tie with Post Malone's "Circles" for the top total in the chart's archives.
