Hot 100 Chart Moves: Hailee Steinfeld Scores First Pop Radio Top 10 With 'Starving'
The collab with Grey and Zedd bullets in the Hot 100's top 20 and reaches the Pop Songs airplay chart's top 10. Plus, Drake is one now song away from tying Lil Wayne for the most Hot 100 entries among soloists.
As previously reported, Rae Sremmurd rockets from No. 9 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Nov. 26) with "Black Beatles," featuring Gucci Mane, the first Hot 100 leader for both acts. The track unseats The Chainsmokers "Closer," featuring Halsey, after 12 weeks at No. 1.
Who else makes fab chart flights?

As it bullets at No. 11 in its 30th week on the Hot 100 , after reaching No. 10, it hits a notable milestone in airplay: the track reaches the Radio Songs chart's top 10 (13-10), gaining by 7 percent to 74 million in all-format audience in the week ending Nov. 13, according to Nielsen Music.
Future feat. Drake, "Used to This"
"Used to This" launches at No. 14 on the Hot 100, marking Future's highest-debuting of 42 entries. It's led by its No. 8 entrance on the Streaming Songs chart with 14.5 million U.S. streams in the tracking week; its official video premiered Nov. 3.
Meanwhile, the track lifts Drake to the edge of an historic mark, as it's his 131st Hot 100 visit, second among solo artists only to Lil Wayne's 132. Among all acts, only the cast of Glee, which featured a rotation of singers on its releases, boasts more: 207.
