Selena Gomez Accepts Chart-Topper Award at Billboard's Women in Music: Read Her Full Speech
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).
"Hands" is the third release from Gomez's Revival album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in October. Lead single "Good For You," featuring A$AP Rocky, re-enters the list at No. 13 this week, having topped the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks survey for two weeks in July. The album's second single, "Same Old Love," reached No. 2 on the chart dated Sept. 26 and rebounds 18-9 this week.
Meanwhile, Adele ties the record for longest-leading No. 1 by a female artist as "Hello" returns to the summit with a 3-1 climb for its third nonconsecutive week in command. With the move, the hit single equals Taylor Swift's "Blank Space," which reigned for three weeks between November 2014 - January 2015. (The Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart began in 2014.)

As "Hello" rises, it displaces One Direction's "History," which dives 1-17 after one week leading the list.
Adele continues to dominate other Billboard charts: "Hello" leads the Billboard Hot 100 for a ninth straight frame, while its album 25 tops the Billboard 200 for a fifth week, racing ahead with another million units sold. She also holds at No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart.
Plus, as year-end countdowns and recaps begin to close out 2015, several of the year's biggest hits make returns to the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart. Major Lazer & DJ Snake's "Lean On" featuring MØ leads the charge with a 45-12 boost. The dance cut was recently named Spotify's most-streamed song of all time and listeners rallied around the track when it was shut out of the 2016 Grammy nominations.
Other songs benefiting from the year-end boost include "Uptown Funk!," which re-enters at No. 36 after peaking at No. 4 in January 2015. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' inescapable funk-laced smash was named the No. 1 Hot 100 song of 2015.
"See You Again" by Wiz Khalifa featuring Charlie Puth, which led the Hot 100 for 12 weeks, also re-enters at No. 30. The track led the weekly Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks survey for three weeks in April - May 2015.
