24kGoldn‘s “Mood,” featuring Iann Dior, spends a fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. It also takes over as the most-streamed song of the week for the first time, logging its first frame atop the Streaming Songs tally.
Plus, The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights,” at No. 5 on the Hot 100, ties Post Malone’s “Circles” for the most weeks, 39 each, spent in the top 10 in the chart’s 62-year history.
The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Nov. 21) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Nov. 17). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.
“Mood,” released on RECORDS/Columbia Records, and the first Hot 100 No. 1 for both 24kGoldn and Iann Dior, drew 25.3 million U.S. streams (up 32%) and sold 13,000 downloads (up 86%) in the week ending Nov. 12, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also earned 85 million radio airplay audience impressions (up nearly 1%) in the week ending Nov. 15.
The track spends a third week at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart; as noted above, tops Streaming Songs for the first time, surging from No. 6; and jumps 6-2 for a new peak on Digital Song Sales. It was helped by the Nov. 6 release of its remix with, in addition to 24kGoldn and Dior, Justin Bieber and J Balvin (although neither Bieber nor J Balvin receives billing on the song on the Hot 100, as the remix did not outperform the original version in chart activity in the tracking week).
“Mood” tops the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts for a 12th week each and Hot Rap Songs for a fifth frame. (All three charts employ the same methodology as the Hot 100.)
Ariana Grande’s “Positions” holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100 after it entered atop the Nov. 7-dated chart. It dips to No. 3 on Streaming Songs after two weeks at the summit (21.2 million, down 17%); climbs 28-21 on Radio Songs (31.6 million, up 14%); and ranks at No. 22 on Digital Song Sales (5,000).
Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope,” featuring Charlie Puth, rises 5-3 on the Hot 100, hitting a new high, as it posts a third week at No. 2 on Radio Songs (78.1 million, down 2%), after a week at No. 1; bounds 15-6 on Digital Song Sales (9,000, up 81%); and re-enters Streaming Songs at No. 30 (9.8 million, up 14%). The song gains in all metrics after Barrett and Puth performed it on the 54th annual Country Music Association Awards, broadcast on ABC on Nov. 11.
A week after “I Hope” completed the longest climb ever to the Hot 100’s top five, it wraps the longest journey to the top three: 46 weeks, surpassing the 43-week ascent of Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” in 2012-13. “I Hope” led the Country Airplay chart for a week in April and, aided by its Puth remix released that month, has segued to adult and pop radio (as it continues in the top 10 on the Adult Contemporary, Adult Pop Songs and Pop Songs airplay charts). It tops the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart for a 16th week.
Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk, drops 3-4 on the Hot 100, after debuting at its No. 2 peak. It adds a third week atop the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where two weeks earlier it became Drake’s record-setting 21st No. 1.
The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” retreats 4-5 on the Hot 100, after spending four weeks at No. 1. It ranks in the top five for a record-extending 33rd week, while adding a record tying 39th week in the top 10, matching Post Malone’s “Circles.”
