'Despacito' Drops From Top of Billboard Hot 100, Logic & Liam Payne Hit Top 10
Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, cedes the summit to Taylor Swift after a record-tying 16 weeks at No. 1, while Logic & Payne earn their first top 10s.
As previously reported, Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" leaps from No. 77 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Sept. 16), following its first full week of data tracking. It soars to the top with the highest weekly streaming and sales sums for a track in 2017, and breaks the record for the most weekly streams ever for a song by a woman.
Also in the Hot 100's top 10, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber, departs the summit after a record-tying 16 weeks at No. 1; Logic's "1-800-273-8255," featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid, bounds 29-9; and Liam Payne becomes the third member of One Direction to notch a solo top 10, as "Strip That Down," featuring Quavo, pushes 11-10.
Let's recap Nos. 2 through 10 on the Hot 100, which blends all-genre streaming, airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Sept. 6).

"Despacito" also drops to No. 2 on the Digital Song Sales chart after a record 17 weeks at No. 1, with 76,000 downloads sold (down 6 percent) in the week ending Aug. 31, according to Nielsen Music. On the Streaming Songs chart, it slips to No. 3 after a record 16 weeks on top, with 39.5 million U.S. streams (down 11 percent) in the week ending Aug. 31. (Swift's "Look" takes over atop both tallies, ruling the latter with the top total ever for a song by a woman: 84.4 million.) On Radio Songs, "Despacito" descends 5-6 (after five prior weeks at No. 1), drawing 87 million in all-format airplay audience (down 17 percent) in the week ending Sept. 3. "Despacito" remains atop Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart, which it leads for a 31st week.
Cardi B's breakthrough hit "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" holds at its No. 3 Hot 100 high. It keeps at No. 2 on Streaming Songs (42.2 million, up 1 percent); slips 8-10 on Digital Song Sales (35,000, down 4 percent); and bumps 20-17 on Radio Songs (55 million, up 11 percent). The track spends a second week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart and becomes Cardi B's first No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (2-1).
DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts," featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, falls to No. 4 on the Hot 100 after seven weeks at its No. 2 peak (the most for a No. 2 hit since Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" spent eight weeks at its No. 2 high in 2015). Still, it tops Radio Songs (131 million, down 5 percent) for a third week and rules the Hot R&B Songs chart for a ninth week.
Charlie Puth's "Attention" is steady at its No. 5 Hot 100 high; Imagine Dragons' "Believer" retreats to No. 6 on the Hot 100 from its No. 4 peak, while leading the Hot Rock Songs chart for a 26th week; French Montana's "Unforgettable," featuring Swae Lee, drops 6-7 on the Hot 100 after reaching No. 3; and Shawn Mendes' "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back" slides 7-8, after rising to No. 6.

After the trio performed the track at the MTV Video Music Awards Aug. 27, Logic's "1-800-273-8255," featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid, vaults 29-9 on the Hot 100. The song soars 22-3 on Digital Song Sales (69,000, up 258 percent) and 15-12 on Streaming Songs (20 million, up 20 percent) and debuts at No. 41 on Radio Songs (30 million, up 21 percent).
The song, from Logic's first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, Everybody (which debuted atop the May 27-dated chart), marks the rapper's first Hot 100 top 10. ("1-800-273-8255" doubles as the phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.) Khalid also earns his first Hot 100 top 10, while Cara collects her fourth, following her own "Here" (No. 5, February 2016) and "Scars to Your Beautiful" (No. 8, February 2017) and her duet with Zedd, "Stay" (No. 7, May).
Closing out the Hot 100's top 10, Liam Payne achieves his first solo top 10, as "Strip That Down," featuring Quavo, climbs 11-10. The song (which Payne co-wrote with Sheeran, among others) also becomes Payne's first solo top 10 on Radio Songs (13-10; 77 million, up 9 percent), while sliding 3-6 on Digital Songs (44,000, down 4 percent) and 29-35 on Streaming Songs (13.7 million, down less than 1 percent week-over-week).
Payne is the third member of One Direction (which has tallied six Hot 100 top 10s) to notch a solo top 10 on the Hot 100, following two by (former member) Zayn and one by Harry Styles, whose "Sign of the Times" debuted and peaked at No. 4 in April. 1D, thus, joins the likes of The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and New Edition with at least three members with solo Hot 100 top 10s.
Meanwhile, Quavo logs his fourth solo Hot 100 top 10, after scoring one as a member of Migos, whose "Bad and Boujee," featuring Lil Uzi Vert (who debuts at No. 1 on the Sept. 16-dated Billboard 200 with Luv Is Rage 2, his first leader on the list), topped the Hot 100 for three weeks in January-February.
