As previously reported, Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" rebounds from No. 2 to No. 1 for a second total week atop the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Feb. 18). Meanwhile, Zayn and Taylor Swift push 5-3 with "I Don't Wanna Love Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)," with both songs benefiting from newly released official videos.

Plus, Nicki Minaj breaks a tie with Swift for the second-most Hot 100 appearances among women, as she debuts as featured (with PARTYNEXTDOOR) on Major Lazer's "Run Up" at No. 66. Now with 71 Hot 100 entries, Minaj one-ups Swift, who has made 70 visits.

Who else makes notable runs up the Hot 100 this week?

The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk, "I Feel It Coming"
As it hits a new high on the Hot 100, lifting 18-16, the track becomes The Weeknd's seventh top 10, and Daft Punk's third, on the Radio Songs chart. It jumps 14-10 on the airplay tally with 76 million in audience, up 10 percent, according to Nielsen Music.

Marian Hill, "Down"
Continuing to build after the Jan. 14 premiere of its Apple iPhone 7 + AirPods ad synch, "Down" enters the Hot 100's top 40 (52-37). On Digital Song Sales, it ranks at No. 9 (dipping from No. 8, but up 4 percent to 36,000). The track by the duo -- singer Samantha Gongol and producer Jeremy Lloyd -- also bounds 36-27 on Pop Songs and 37-31 on Alternative Songs in its second week on each airplay chart, while increasing by 44 percent to 4.5 million U.S. streams.

Post Malone feat. Quavo, "Congratulations"
"Congratulations" are in order for Post Malone, who earns his second top 40 Hot 100 hit (58-39), following the No. 14-peaking "White Iverson." Both are from his debut LP and former Top Rap Albums No. 1, Stoney. His latest single blasts 44-18 on Streaming Songs with 11.2 million domestic streams (up 41 percent) following the Jan. 23 premiere of its official video.

Speaking of featured artist Quavo, of Migos

Migos feat. Travis Scott, "Kelly Price"
As the trio's Culture debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, five tracks from the set enter the Hot 100, joining "Bad and Boujee," featuring Lil Uzi Vert (at No. 2 after three weeks at No. 1), and "T-Shirt," which soars 37-19 in its third week, up 61 percent to 21.2 million U.S. streams.

"Kelly Price" is among the five debuts from Culture (No. 58); the actual singer by that name has charted five Hot 100 entries, in 1998-2000, rising as high as No. 2 as featured (with Faith Evans) on Whitney Houston's No. 2 hit "Heartbreak Hotel" in 1999. On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Price has charted 15 tracks, including two No. 1s: 1998's "Friend of Mine" (five weeks on top) and "Hotel" (seven). More recently, she scored co-writing and vocal credits on Kanye West's 2016 Billboard 200 No. 1 The Life of Pablo.

The other Migos songs new to the Hot 100: "Slippery," featuring Gucci Mane (No. 48); "Call Casting" (No. 62); "Get Right Witcha" (No. 72); and the Culture title cut, featuring DJ Khaled (No. 93).

Missy Elliott feat. Lamb, "I'm Better"
The track debuts at No. 71 on the Hot 100, marking Elliott's 33rd visit to the chart. Among female rappers, only Minaj (71) boasts more. The track also bows at No. 8 on Rap Digital Song Sales (22,000 sold).
