Maroon 5 notches its record-extending 13th No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart (dated Aug. 11), as "Girls Like You" rises 2-1. The song, which has drawn buzz for its star-studded video, marks the first leader on the list for featured artist Cardi B. ("Girls" was originally released as by only Maroon 5 on the band's 2017 album Red Pill Blues.)

Maroon 5 pads its mark over runner-up P!nk, who has posted nine No. 1s, for the most in the history of the survey (which launched in the pages of Billboard in 1996). Katy Perry ranks third with eight Adult Pop Songs No. 1s, followed by Taylor Swift (seven) and Adele and Nickelback (five each).
