Drake's 'One Dance' No. 1 on Hot 100; Twenty One Pilots 'Ride' to Top 10
Drake leads for a seventh week; Rihanna ties Elvis for a milestone achievement; and Twenty One Pilots reach the top 10 with "Ride" and debut in the top 15 with "Heathens."
Drake rules the Billboard Hot 100 (dated July 9) for a seventh nonconsecutive week with "One Dance," featuring WizKid and Kyla. Plus, Calvin Harris' "This Is What You Came For," featuring Rihanna, reaches the top five, marking a key historic feat for Rihanna; and Twenty One Pilots fly to the top 10 with "Ride" while entering the chart in the top 15 with their newest single, "Heathens."
As we do every Monday when the Hot 100 is refreshed, let's run down the top 10 and more. Highlights of the airplay, sales and streaming-based Hot 100 post on Billboard.com each Monday, with all charts updated each Tuesday.
As "Dance," released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, leads the Hot 100 for a seventh week (and sixth in a row), it earns a 10th week atop the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs streaming chart with 19.7 million on-demand U.S. plays (down 3 percent) in the week ending June 23, according to Nielsen Music. Only four hits previously topped On-Demand Songs for at least 10 weeks since the chart launched in March 2012: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop," featuring Wanz (13 weeks); Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk!," featuring Bruno Mars (11); Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, and Katy Perry's "Dark Horse," featuring Juicy J (10 each). Drake surpasses his prior best run: Rihanna's "Work," on which he's featured, led On-Demand Songs for nine weeks earlier this year.
"Dance" rebounds 2-1 on Radio Songs for a second a week as the most heard song on U.S. radio, and marks a new best career audience week for Drake: 164 million in reach (up 3 percent). He previously drew 159 million on the Jan. 22, 2011, chart as featured on Rihanna's "What's My Name?"
"Dance" stays at No. 2 on the overall Streaming Songs chart, which it led for a week (May 21), with 21.8 million U.S. streams (down 3 percent). On the Digital Songs sales chart, which it topped for two weeks, it drops 2-4 (84,000 downloads sold, down 5 percent). Drake's first Hot 100 No. 1 as a lead artist rules Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for an eighth week and crowns the Songs of the Summer chart for a fourth week, following the list's annual relaunch three weeks ago.
"Dance" is from Drake's album Views, which, as previously reported, logs an eighth week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. With Drake having led both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 for each of the past six weeks, he is the first artist to double up atop the rankings for six straight frames since Adele did so for six with "Hello" and parent album 25, respectively, in December-January. The last male to lead the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 concurrently for at least six straight weeks before Drake was 50 Cent, who earned the honor for six weeks in a row in 2005 with "Candy Shop" (featuring Olivia) and album The Massacre.
The last longer double domination? Whitney Houston led the Hot 100 and Billboard 200, respectively, for a record-tying 12 weeks in a row at the same time in 1992-93 with "I Will Always Love You" and its parent album, her soundtrack to The Bodyguard. Meanwhile, Drake is a week from tying the longest consecutive control of the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously among males: Michael Jackson led both lists concurrently for seven straight weeks in 1983 with "Billie Jean" and Thriller, respectively.
After debuting at No. 1 on the Hot 100 five weeks ago, becoming just the 26th single to start on top in the chart's history, Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling!" holds at No. 2. It spends a seventh week at No. 1 on Digital Songs (118,000, down 5 percent), encompassing its entire run on the chart. "Feeling" is the first hit to log its first seven weeks on Digital Songs at No. 1 in seven years: in 2009, The Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" tallied its first nine weeks at the summit. (The Peas set the longevity record out of the gate with its single before that, as "Boom Boom Pow" spent its first 10 weeks on Digital Songs at No. 1.)
"Feeling" falls to No. 2 after three weeks atop Radio Songs (163 million, essentially even from last week). Still, the song tops the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart for a fourth week and becomes Timberlake's first solo No. 1 on Adult Contemporary, where it bumps 3-1; with *NSYNC, he led for 13 weeks in 2000-01 with "This I Promise You" (written by Richard Marx). Reaching the AC summit in just its eighth week, "Feeling" completes the fastest run to No. 1 for a (non-holiday) song by a male artist in 17 years, since Phil Collins' "You'll Be in My Heart" needed only six frames in 1999. Among all songs, "Feeling" makes the fastest trip to No. 1 on AC since Adele's "Hello": four weeks, in November. Also notably, "Feeling," which Timberlake co-wrote with pop hitmakers Max Martin and Shellback, is the first uptempo (non-holiday) song to top AC in as few as eight weeks since another Martin co-write: Celine Dion's "That's the Way It Is" (also eight), in 1999.
On Streaming Songs, "Feeling" dips 9-10 (11.4 million, down 2 percent).
Desiigner's former two-week No. 1 "Panda" keeps at No. 3 on the Hot 100. Still, it tops Streaming Songs for a 10th total week, drawing 26.8 million domestic streams (down 9 percent). The rapper's breakthrough hit earns a 12th week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Rap Songs chart.
The Chainsmokers' first top five Hot 100 hit, "Don't Let Me Down," featuring Daya, holds at its No. 4 high. It bullets at No. 3 on Radio Songs (128 million, up 3 percent) and No. 5 on Streaming Songs (down from No. 4, but up by 1 percent to 15 million). On Digital Songs, it slips 4-6 (71,000, down 1 percent). The track crowns Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a 10th week and takes over at No. 1 on the Pop Songs airplay ranking, marking the first leader on the list for both The Chainsmokers and Daya.
Calvin Harris' "This Is What You Came For," featuring Rihanna, enters the Hot 100's top five, rising 6-5. Following the premiere of its official video June 16, the collab blasts 5-3 on Digital Songs (87,000 sold, up 26 percent) and 14-3 on Streaming Songs (16.5 million, up 62 percent), winning the Hot 100's top Digital and Streaming Gainer awards. It jumps 7-5 on Radio Songs (92 million, up 9 percent).
Rihanna scores her 21st top five Hot 100 hit, tying Elvis Presley for the fifth-most top fives in the chart's history, which dates to Aug. 4, 1958. (Notably, Presley's career launched two years before the chart began.) Here's a look at the acts with the most top five hits, as Rihanna breaks out of a tie with two icons, each with 20:
Most Top Five Hot 100 Hits
29, The Beatles
26, Mariah Carey
24, Janet Jackson
21, Elvis Presley
20, Michael Jackson
20, Stevie Wonder
Sia's "Cheap Thrills," featuring Sean Paul, rises 8-6 on the Hot 100. The reggae-leaning single enters the Digital Songs top five (7-5; 81,000, up 24 percent) and the Radio Songs top 10 (13-8; 84 million, up 19 percent), adding the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer honor for a third week. It also lifts 15-11 on Streaming Songs (10.9 million, up 11 percent).
Sia scores her best Hot 100 rank as a lead artist: her prior top 10 as a lead, "Chandelier," reached No. 8 in August 2014; she's also hit the top 10 as featured on Flo Rida's "Wild Ones" (No. 5) and David Guetta's "Titanium" (No. 7), both in 2012. Paul last ranked higher nearly 10 years ago, when "(When You Gonna) Give It Up to Me," featuring Keyshia Cole, reached No. 3 in 2006.
Fifth Harmony's "Work From Home," featuring Ty Dolla $ign, descends 5-7 on the Hot 100 after peaking at No. 4 (while follow-up "All in My Head (Flex)," featuring Fetty Wap, debuts at No. 78); Rihanna's "Needed Me" retreats to No. 8 from its No. 7 Hot 100 peak; and Kent Jones' debut hit "Don't Mind" lifts 10-9, hitting a new high.
Rounding out Hot 100's top 10, Twenty One Pilots' "Ride" rises 13-10. The song likewise enters the Digital Songs top 10 (61,000, up 18 percent) and climbs 16-12 on Radio Songs (74 million, up 13 percent) and 17-16 on Streaming Songs (9.9 million, up 10 percent). The duo tallies its second Hot 100 top 10, with both from its former No. 1 Billboard 200 album Blurryface, following "Stressed Out," which peaked at No. 2 (Feb. 27). Notably, both "Stressed" and "Ride" were written solely by the twosome's Tyler Joseph (Josh Dun completes the pair), and the songs are the only new Hot 100 top 10s penned by just one person in more than a year, since Hozier's self-written No. 2-peaking "Take Me to Church" wrapped its top 10 run in March 2015. (Prince's self-authored '80s classics "Purple Rain" and "When Doves Cry" also returned to the top 10 following his passing.)
Twenty One Pilots also land the Hot 100's top debut, as "Heathens" launches at No. 14, fueled by its No. 2 entrance on Digital Songs (95,000) and No. 17 opening on Streaming Songs (9.2 million). The song is from the Suicide Squad: The Album soundtrack (due Aug. 5). Impressively, "Ride" rules Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart for a third week, "Heathens" debuts at No. 2 and "Stressed Out" slips 2-3, making Twenty One Pilots the first act ever to monopolize the top three spots on the chart (since it began in June 2009).
Also just beyond the Hot 100's top 10, Adele's "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" rises 20-19, reaching a new peak, and Drake's "Controlla" enters the top 20 (23-20).
