The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Oct. 24) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Oct. 20). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.
Here’s a deeper look at the coronation of “Mood,” released on RECORDS/Columbia Records (and the 1,112th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 62-year history).
Streams, sales & airplay: “Mood” drew 20.3 million U.S. streams (down 2%) and sold 7,000 downloads (down 2%) in the week ending Oct. 15, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also tallied 62.9 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 16%) in the week ending Oct. 18.
The track rises 6-4 on the Streaming Songs chart, 8-6 on Digital Song Sales and 7-6 on Radio Songs. On the Hot 100, it wins the top Airplay Gainer award for the sixth time in the past seven weeks, marking the first song to hoist the trophy six times in a span of seven weeks since Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, in May-July 2017.
Each act’s first No. 1: 24kGoldn (real name: Golden Landis Von Jones), this month’s Billboard Chartbreaker, earns his first Hot 100 No. 1 with his second entry, after “Valentino” spent a week at No. 92 last November. (“Mood” is as of now a stand-alone single; “Valentino” is from 24kGoldn’s November 2019 release Dropped Outta College.)
Dior (real name: Michael Ian Olmo) reigns in his first visit to the chart.
Leading labels: The RECORDS imprint, formed in 2015, lands its first Hot 100 No. 1 with “Mood.”
Meanwhile, Columbia collects its fourth Hot 100 No. 1 of 2020, tying Republic Records for the most leaders that a label has sent to the summit for the first time this year.
17th No. 1 of 2020: “Mood” is the 17th song to ascend to No. 1 on the Hot 100 for the first time in 2020. This year marks the highest total of songs earning their first weeks on top since 17 also did in 2010 (and the most by the fourth chart week of October since Nielsen Music/MRC Data-based information began fueling the chart in November 1991).
Good ‘mood’: 24kGldn and Dior boast the second Hot 100 No. 1 with the word “mood” in its title, and the first in over 59 years, since Pat Boone’s “Moody River” wound its way to the top of the June 19, 1961-dated chart.
The only other such top 10: “In the Mood,” by Ernie Fields, hit No. 4 in December 1959.
First rock & rap ruler: “Mood” tops the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts for an eighth week each and ascends to its first week at No. 1 on Hot Rap Songs, all of which employ the same methodology as the Hot 100.
The song is the first to crown all three charts, or even both Hot Rock & Alternative Songs (formerly Hot Rock Songs), which began in 2009, and Hot Rap Songs, which dates to 1989. (Hot Alternative Songs originated this June.)
Cardi B’s “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, rises 3-2 on the Hot 100, after four nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1, as it leads Streaming Songs for a ninth week (25.9 million, down 8%). It concurrently rules the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a ninth week.
Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk, lifts 4-3 on the Hot 100, after debuting at its No. 2 peak.
The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” climbs 6-4 on the Hot 100, after spending four weeks at No. 1. It returns to the top five for a record-extending 29th week in the region, while logging a 35th week in the top 10, the second-most weeks ever in the tier, after Post Malone’s “Circles” (39 weeks, 2019-20). “Lights” leads the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart for a record-padding 31st week and Radio Songs (76.8 million, down 2%) for a record-furthering 26th frame.
BTS’ “Dynamite” drops 2-5 on the Hot 100, after three nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1, as it posts an eighth week atop Digital Song Sales (44,000, down 53%).
Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo’s “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” falls to No. 6 on the Hot 100, a week after it vaulted from No. 8 to No. 1 aided by two new BTS remixes. (With activity for the BTS versions not outperforming those by Jawsh 685/Derulo in the latest tracking week, unlike last week, BTS is now not listed as a credited act on the song on the chart, after the group received billing on the song for the first time last week; for historical purposes, all three artists retain credit for the song’s week at No. 1 on the Hot 100.)
DaBaby’s seven-week Hot 100 leader “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, repeats at No. 7; Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope,” featuring Charlie Puth, holds at its No. 8 high, as it rules the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart for a 13th week; and Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” rebounds 11-9 on the Hot 100, after achieving a week at No. 1.
Internet Money and Gunna’s “Lemonade,” featuring Don Toliver and NAV, hits the Hot 100’s top 10, rising 12-10. The track, from Internet Money’s LP B4 the Storm, which debuted at its No. 10 high on the Billboard 200 in September, climbs 4-2 on Streaming Songs (21.7 million, down 7%).
Gunna claims his second Hot 100 top 10, after “Drip Too Hard,” with Lil Baby, hit No. 4 in October 2018. Production collective Internet Money, Toliver and NAV each earn their first Hot 100 top 10.
