Ariana Grande and Ed Sheeran Hit Milestones, Avril Lavigne Returns and More Hot 100 Chart Moves

'God Is a Woman' and 'Perfect' make moves, and 'Head Above Water' debuts.

As previously reported, Maroon 5's "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Oct. 6). The song holds off Juice WRLD's "Lucid Dreams," which hits a new No. 2 high, rising from No. 4.

Who else makes noteworthy Hot 100 chart moves this week?

"God Is a Woman," Ariana Grande
After becoming Grande's 10th Hot 100 top 10 (reaching No. 8) on Sept. 1, the week that parent album Sweetener debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, "God Is a Woman" ascends to the Radio Songs top 10, where it's Grande's ninth top 10. The track lifts 11-10 on Radio Songs, up 10 percent  to 57.4 million in audience in the tracking week, according to Nielsen Music.

Here is a look at all nine of Grande's Radio Songs top 10s to date:

No. 2, "Problem," feat. Iggy Azalea (July 5, 2014)
No. 8, "Break Free," feat. Zedd (Oct. 11, 2014)
No. 5, "Bang Bang," with Jessie J & Nicki Minaj (Oct. 25, 2014)
No. 3, "Love Me Harder," with The Weeknd (Jan. 17, 2015)
No. 8, "One Last Time" (April 25, 2015)
No. 6, "Dangerous Woman" (July 2, 2016)
No. 3, "Side to Side," feat. Nicki Minaj (Dec. 31, 2016)
No. 3, "No Tears Left to Cry" (July 14, 2018)
No. 10 (to date), "God Is a Woman" (Oct. 6, 2018)

Since her first week in the Radio Songs top 10 (June 7, 2014), Grande boasts the most top 10s among women, ahead of Taylor Swift's eight and Rihanna's seven. Overall, she's tied with Justin Bieber for the second-best total, after Drake's 10 in that span.

While "Woman" is rising, Republic Records is concurrently promoting new Sweetener single "Breathin," which climbs 62-58 on the Hot 100 (after hitting No. 22 on Sept. 1). "Breathin" gains by 51 percent to 15.9 million in radio reach.

"Perfect," Ed Sheeran
The former six-week Hot 100 No. 1 (billed as a duet with Beyoncé for the first five of those frames, thanks to the popularity at the time of its remix), rebounds 23-21 in its 57th week on the chart. The ballad becomes just the 25th single to spend at least 57 weeks on the Hot 100 in the list's 60-year history; impressively, Sheeran is the only artist with three hits in the elite club (while Imagine Dragons have two, including the record-holder):
