Gomez reaches the top 20 with 'Same Old Love' & Lovato re-enters the Hot 100 with 'Confident.' Plus, moves for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Nicky Jam & Enrique Iglesias & the 1975.

As previously reported, The Weeknd holds at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Oct. 31), as "The Hills" logs a fifth week on top, fueled by new remixes with Eminem and Nicki Minaj.

Beyond "The Hills," who else makes notable climbs up the Hot 100?

The track rises to a new Hot 100 high (14-12) and enters the top 40 radio-based Pop Songs chart's top 10 (11-9). It's the pair's fourth top 10 on the latter list: in 2013, "Thrift Shop" (featuring Wanz) and "Can't Hold Us" (featuring Ray Dalton) spent two and four weeks at No. 1, respectively, and "Same Love" (featuring Mary Lambert) rose to No. 5.

The second single from Gomez's new album Revival, which debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, reaches the Hot 100's top 20, soaring 38-18. The track (co-written by Charli XCX, among others) bounds into the top 10 on the Digital Songs chart (22-9; 58,000 downloads sold, up 60 percent, according to Nielsen Music); blasts 49-18 on Streaming Songs (6.9 million U.S. streams, up 66 percent, good for top Streaming Gainer honors on the Hot 100); and debuts at No. 42 on Radio Songs (30 million in audience, up 33 percent).

"Love" follows Gomez's highest-charting Hot 100 hit, the No. 5-peaking "Good for You," featuring A$AP Rocky (now at No. 10).

"I just wanna say thank you to all you guys for the past few weeks," Gomez Tweeted to her 34 million followers Oct. 20. "Reminds me of why I do what I do!"

Nicky Jam & Enrique Iglesias, "El Perdon"

Jam and Iglesias' collab (58-56) tallies a 30th week on the Hot 100, setting a peculiar record: the most weeks spent on the chart without reaching the top 50. It returns to its No. 56 high.

Here's an updated look at the songs to spend the most time on the chart without cracking its upper half:

Weeks, Peak, Title, Artist, Peak Year
30, No. 56, "El Perdon (Forgiveness)," Nicky Jam & Enrique Iglesias, 2015
29, No. 53, "HeadBand," B.o.B feat. 2 Chainz, 2014
27, No. 76, "The Rockafeller Skank," Fatboy Slim, 2000
23, No. 81, "Cold," Crossfade, 2004
22, No. 51, "Like a Wrecking Ball," Eric Church, 2015
22, No. 53, "Drinking Class," Lee Brice, 2015
22, No. 59, "Someday," Rob Thomas, 2010
22, No. 84, "Take a Walk," Passion Pit, 2013

"Perdon" has logged its steady Hot 100 run fueled by its 30-week reign on Hot Latin Songs (stopped on the Oct. 17 chart), as well as its newer crossover success; it rises 32-31 on the Pop Songs chart.

Demi Lovato, "Confident"

The title track from Lovato's fifth album, which will challenge for the top of next week's Billboard 200, re-enters the Hot 100 at a new high of No. 58, vaulting in all metrics. It's up by 189 percent to 3 million U.S. streams; 57 percent to 21,000 sold; and 50 percent to 19 million in radio audience.

The 1975, "Love Me"

The Manchester, England alt-rockers debut at No. 100 on the Hot 100, marking their second entry; "Chocolate" hit No. 80 in March 2014. The new single, which launches at No. 7 on Hot Rock Songs (34,000 sold), becomes the band's first top 10 on the chart and previews the group's second studio album, I Like It When You Sleep for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, expected in February.

As for the band's name … the 1975 is one of just three acts to hit the Hot 100 with years starting their names. The other two: 1910 Fruitgum Co., which unwrapped three top five hits in 1968-69 ("Simon Says," "1, 2, 3, Red Light" and "Indian Giver") and Australian band 1927, which dented the chart at No. 100 for a week in 1989 with the catchy "That's When I Think of You."
