Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, leads the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated June 17) for a fourth week. Meanwhile, Post Malone scores his first top 10, with "Congratulations," featuring Quavo.
As we do each Monday, let's run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends all-genre sales, airplay and streaming data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow, June 6.
"Despacito" (released on Universal Music Latino / Raymond Braun / SchoolBoy / Def Jam / UMLE / Republic Records) leads the Streaming Songs chart for a fourth week, with 69.6 million U.S. streams (up 6 percent) in the week ending June 1, according to Nielsen Music. Only one song has posted a greater weekly total on Streaming Songs (which began on March 2, 2013): Baauer's "Harlem Shake," which peaked with 103 million, powered heavily by user-generated clips featuring the song's audio, the week that the survey debuted. "Despacito" passes prior runner-up "Humble.," by Kendrick Lamar, which logged 67.4 million (May 6). The only other song to top 60 million: Adele's "Hello" (61.6 million, in its first week, Nov. 14, 2015). "Despacito" also dominates the On-Demand Streaming Songs chart for a third week, up 5 percent to 29.4 million on-demand domestic clicks.
"Despacito" rules the Digital Song Sales chart for a fifth week, with 148,000 downloads sold (up 8 percent) in the week ending June 1; the remix with Bieber accounts for 80 percent of the song's sales (up from 77 percent a week ago and 73 percent each of the two previous weeks).
On Radio Songs, "Despacito" keeps at No. 7, with 101 million in all-format airplay audience (up 15 percent) in the week ending June 4, adding the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for a third consecutive week.
With a fourth week atop the Hot 100, "Despacito" is the second-longest-leading of the three Spanish language-dominant Hot 100 No. 1s in the chart's history. Los Del Rio's "Macarena" ruled for 14 weeks in 1996 and Los Lobos' "La Bamba" (the only all-Spanish-language No. 1; the other two are sung mostly in Spanish) reigned for three weeks in 1987. "Despacito" (whose title translates to "slowly" in English) tops the Hot Latin Songs chart for an 18th week.
Bruno Mars' "That's What I Like" ranks at No. 2 on the Hot 100 for a fifth week after topping the May 13-dated chart. It leads Radio Songs for a fifth week, with 165 million in audience (essentially even week-over-week), and tops Hot R&B Songs for a 16th week and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for a ninth week.
DJ Khaled's "I'm the One," featuring Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, tallies a fourth week at No. 3 after debuting atop the May 20-dated Hot 100. The collab climbs 3-2 on Digital Song Sales (75,000, down 6 percent) and dips 2-3 on Streaming Songs (42.3 million, down 6 percent), while holding at No. 8 on Radio Songs (92 million, up 15 percent). "One" collects a fifth week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart.
Lamar's "Humble.," which topped May 6-dated Hot 100, holds at No. 4 and becomes his first Radio Songs top 10 as a lead artist (11-10; 66 million, up 9 percent). He'd previously reached the region as featured on two Radio Songs No. 1s: Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" (five weeks at No. 1 in 2015) and Maroon 5's "Don't Wanna Know" (eight weeks beginning Dec. 31). Before "Humble.," Lamar had peaked as high as No. 19 as a lead with "Swimming Pools (Drank)" and "Poetic Justice," the latter featuring Drake, both in 2013.
Rounding out the Hot 100's top five, Ed Sheeran's former 12-week No. 1 "Shape of You" remains at No. 5 and extends its record for the most weeks spent in the top five from a song's debut, having now logged its first 21 weeks on the Hot 100 in the top five, dating to its arrival at No. 1 (Jan. 28).
Future's No. 5-peaking "Mask Off" holds at No. 6 on the Hot 100 and wins the top Streaming Gainer award for its 13 percent boost to 43.3 million U.S. streams. The track also jumps 25-15 on Digital Song Sales (34,000, up 9 percent). Aiding its momentum: a new remix featuring Lamar, released May 25.
Zedd and Alessia Cara's "Stay" is steady at its No. 7 Hot 100 peak, while topping Hot Dance/Electronic Songs for a third week, and The Chainsmokers and Coldplay's No. 3-peaking "Something Just Like This" remains at No. 8 on the Hot 100. The Chainsmokers spend a 57th consecutive week in the Hot 100's top 10, a streak second only to Katy Perry's record 69-week run in 2010-11. Lil Uzi Vert's "XO TOUR Llif3" is likewise stationary on the Hot 100, at No. 9 after reaching a No. 8 high.
Copy and paste: Nos. 1-9 on the Hot 100 stay in place from last week. The last time that at least the top nine was static? On the chart dated Aug. 24, 2013, the top 11 titles repeated their ranks, led by Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," featuring T.I. and Pharrell, at No. 1. (One act has been a participant in both weeks: Mars placed at No. 7 that week in 2013 with "Treasure.")
Post Malone celebrates his first Hot 100 top 10, as "Congratulations," featuring Quavo, rises 13-10. The song bullets at No. 7 on Streaming Songs (30 million, up 3 percent); soars 24-12 on Digital Song Sales, up 13 percent to 37,000 sold, aided by a 69-cent sale price in the iTunes Store; and nears Radio Songs (19 million, up 5 percent). Malone previously peaked as high as No. 14 on the Hot 100 (among three previous visits) with his debut entry, "White Iverson," in January 2016.
Both songs are from his debut album, Stoney, which debuted at its No. 6 peak in December and has spent its first 25 weeks in the chart's top 25 (ranking at No. 13 on the current June 17-dated chart). (Malone recently met former NBA star Allen Iverson, for whom his breakout hit is named. "I'm still tripping at how sick it was," Malone told Billboard.)
Quavo, meanwhile, collects his third Hot 100 top 10 as a soloist, all in featured roles. He first reached the region on Drake's "Portland" (also featuring Travis Scott), which peaked at No. 9 in April, before hitting the top 10 with "I'm the One" and "Congratulations." Quavo first entered the tier as part of Migos, whose "Bad and Boujee," featuring Lil Uzi Vert, spent three weeks at No. 1 in January and February.
Beyond the Hot 100's top 10, three songs are new to the top 20: Childish Gambino's "Redbone" (22-17); French Montana's "Unforgettable," featuring Swae Lee (23-18); and Ayo & Teo's "Rolex" (31-20).
