Drake's 'One Dance' Tops Hot 100 for 10th Week
The song joins the exclusive club of singles that have reigned for double-digit weeks. It also passes Rihanna's "Work," featuring Drake, as both 2016's and Drake's longest-leading No. 1. Plus, Adele hits the top 10 with "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)."
Drake's "One Dance," featuring WizKid and Kyla, crowns the Billboard Hot 100 (dated July 30), for a 10th total week, joining an elite list of singles in the Hot 100's history to rule for double-digit weeks. The song also bests Rihanna's "Work," featuring Drake, which led for nine weeks in March and April, as both the longest-leading No. 1 of 2016 and of Drake's career.
Plus, Adele adds a second top Hot 100 top 10 from her album 25 with "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)."
As we do every Monday when the Hot 100 is refreshed, let's recap 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.
With a 10th week atop the Hot 100 (and ninth consecutively), "Dance," released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, becomes just the 32nd No. 1 in the Hot 100's history to reign for at least 10 weeks. Put another way: 1,055 No. 1s have led the Hot 100 since the chart launched in 1958, so "Dance" is in the top 3 percent of the longest-commanding hits of all-time.
"Dance" is the longest-leading Hot 100 No. 1 since Adele's "Hello" (the lead single from 25), which ruled for 10 weeks in November-January. "Dance" logs the most weeks atop the Hot 100 by a male since Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again," featuring Charlie Puth (12 weeks, April-July 2015). The overall record? Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day," which spent 16 weeks at No. 1 in 1995-96. (Read on for more about Adele and 25…)
"Dance" scores a record-tying 13th week atop the audio subscription services-based On-Demand Songs streaming chart with 16.3 million on-demand U.S. plays (down 8 percent) in the week ending July 14, according to Nielsen Music. It ties Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" featuring Wanz (13 weeks, 2013) for the most time atop On-Demand Songs since the list began in 2012.
"Dance" stays at No. 2 on the overall Streaming Songs chart, which it led for a week (May 21), with 17.9 million U.S. streams (down 8 percent). It returns to No. 1 on Radio Songs for a third (nonconsecutive) week as the most-heard song on U.S. airwaves (159 million in audience, down 1 percent), while on the Digital Songs sales chart, which it topped for two weeks, it slips 6-7 (58,000 downloads sold, down 7 percent).
"Dance" also rules Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for an 11th week and the Songs of the Summer chart for a seventh frame, having led the seasonal running tally each week since the list relaunched. It additionally becomes Drake's first No. 1 on the mainstream top 40-based Pop Songs radio airplay chart (2-1), where he'd previously peaked as high as No. 2 with "Hotline Bling" last year.
Impressively, Drake has now spent 44 consecutive weeks in the Hot 100's top 10, dating to the Oct. 3, 2015, Hot 100, when "Hotline Bling" bounded 16-9. He moves to within one week of the mark for the most consecutive weeks spent in the top 10 among males, as The Weeknd logged 45 straight weeks in the region (March 7, 2015-Jan. 9, 2016). (Notably, The Weeknd was the lead artist in all 45 of those weeks; Drake has been credited as the lead on songs in 33 weeks of his current 44-week streak.) The record among all acts: Katy Perry ranked in the Hot 100's top 10 for 69 consecutive weeks (all as a lead) in 2010-11.
And, as "Dance" parent album Views leads the Billboard 200 for a 10th week while a single from the set tops the Hot 100 for a 10th frame, Drake joins an exclusive group of artists that have achieved such a double domination of that length; only Adele, Santana and Whitney Houston previously released albums that both led the Billboard 200 for at least 10 weeks and generated singles that did the same on the Hot 100.

After debuting at No. 1 on the Hot 100 nine weeks ago, becoming just the 26th single to start on top in the chart's history, Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling!" ranks at No. 2 (for a fifth straight week). It spends a 10th week at No. 1 on Digital Songs (92,000, down 6 percent), encompassing its entire run on the chart. "Feeling" is just the eighth title to top Digital Songs for at least 10 weeks and the first since Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk!," featuring Bruno Mars, led for a record-tying 13 weeks in 2015; Flo Rida's "Low," featuring T-Pain, first set the mark with 13 weeks at No. 1 on Digital Songs in 2007-08. "Feeling" is the second song to spend its first 10 weeks on Digital Songs at No. 1, joining The Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow," which logged its first 10 weeks on the chart at the summit in 2009.
"Feeling" descends 1-2 after five (nonconsecutive) weeks atop Radio Songs (157 million, down 4 percent) and holds at No. 12 on Streaming Songs (10.7 million, up 1 percent).
Sia's "Cheap Thrills," featuring Sean Paul, hits a new high on the Hot 100, rising 5-3. The rank also marks a new career best for Sia, who previously peaked at No. 5 in May 2012 as featured on Flo Rida's "Wild Ones." (As a writer, Sia has charted higher on the Hot 100 thanks to her co-write of Rihanna's "Diamonds," which led for three weeks in December 2012.)
"Thrills" is the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer for a sixth straight week, marking the longest streak of winning the award since Pharrell's "Happy" (eight weeks, in 2014); the last song by a woman to earn the honor for at least that long? Rihanna's "Rude Boy" (seven weeks, 2010). "Thrills" gains by 12 percent to 133 million and pushes 4-3 on Radio Songs. The track (originally intended to be recorded by Rihanna) bullets at its No. 2 high on Digital Songs for a third week (91,000, up 8 percent) and lifts 9-7 on Streaming Songs (12.5 million, up 6 percent).
Calvin Harris' "This Is What You Came For," featuring Rihanna, holds at its No. 4 Hot 100 peak. Notably, it gains by 11 percent to 67,000 sold and returns to its No. 3 high, surging from No. 8, on Digital Songs, perhaps sparked in part by Harris' confirmation last Wednesday (July 13) that his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift co-wrote the song (under the pseudonym "Nils Sjöberg"). (Despite its increase to 67,000, it's worth noting that "This" sold more than that amount for each week for five straight weeks until it moved 60,000 last week, as reflected on the July 23-dated Digital Songs chart. Then again, the song's boost to 67,000 included only a day-plus of tracking after the revelation of Swift as a co-writer, since the chart's tracking week ended July 14.)
Additionally, "This" takes over at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart (2-1). It dethrones The Chainsmokers' "Don't Let Me Down," featuring Daya, after 12 weeks at No. 1. On the Hot 100, "Don't" drops from its No. 3 peak to No. 5.
Twenty One Pilots' "Ride" rises to a new best rank on the Hot 100, rolling 8-6 (and topping the Hot Rock Songs chart for a sixth week), while Rihanna's "Needed Me" remains at its Hot 100 peak at No. 7. "Needed Me" nudges 13-10 on Radio Songs to become Rihanna's record-extending 26th top 10; Mariah Carey ranks second with 23 Radio Songs top 10s (dating to the chart's December 1990 debut).
Desiigner's former two-week No. 1 "Panda" falls 6-8 on the Hot 100, but ties the record for the most weeks, 13, totaled atop Streaming Songs (21.8 million, down 12 percent). Dating to the chart's January 2013 inception, two songs previously topped Streaming Songs for 13 weeks each: Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" (2013-14) and Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX (2014). "Panda" also paces Billboard's Hot Rap Songs chart for a 15th week.
Below "Panda" on the Hot 100, Kent Jones' fellow breakthrough hit "Don't Mind" holds at No. 9 after reaching No. 8.
Capping the Hot 100's top 10, Adele's "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" climbs 12-10, as the third single from 25 becomes the set's second top 10, following 10-week No. 1 lead single "Hello." (Second single "When We Were Young" reached No. 14.) "Send," Adele's sixth career Hot 100 top 10, also enters the top 10 on Radio Songs (12-9; 79 million, up 8 percent) and Digital Songs (11-10; 51,000, up 9 percent). It retreats 20-22 on Streaming Songs, although with a 1 percent gain to 8.4 million. (The song's official video premiered on the 2016 Billboard Music Awards May 22.)
Fun fact: Adele sends just the fourth title in the Hot 100's history with the word "send" in its title to the top 10. The prior three: Elvis Presley's "Return to Sender," with the Jordanaires (No. 2, 1962); Stevie Wonder's "Send One Your Love" (No. 4, 1979); and Linear's "Sending All My Love" (No. 5, 1990). (Honorable mention: Sam Cooke's classic "You Send Me" predated the Hot 100's 1958 inception; it topped the Hot 100's predecessor chart, the Top 100, in 1957.)
Among highlights below the Hot 100's top 10, Shawn Mendes' "Treat You Better" leaps to a new peak (35-20), as does Fifth Harmony's "All in My Head (Flex)," featuring Fetty Wap (37-29), along with four songs that each enter the top 40: Ariana Grande's "Into You" (41-33); DJ Khaled's "I Got the Keys," featuring Jay Z and Future (56-34); Charlie Puth's "We Don't Talk Anymore," featuring Selena Gomez (48-35); and D.R.A.M.'s "Broccoli," featuring Lil Yachty (43-39).
Meanwhile, looking ahead to next week, two songs that were released Friday (July 15) could make notable lofty debuts on the Hot 100 (dated Aug. 6): Britney Spears' "Make Me," featuring G-Eazy, and Katy Perry's Olympics anthem "Rise."
