Ariana Grande‘s “34+35” debuts at No. 8 on the Hot 100. The song joins her single “Positions,” which debuted at No. 1 a week ago and this week dips to No. 2, as her new album Positions, which includes both songs, launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Nov. 14) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Nov. 10). 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 19.2 million U.S. streams (essentially even week-over-week) and sold 7,000 downloads (down 10%) in the week ending Nov. 5, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also tallied 84.2 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 7%) in the week ending Nov. 8.
The track spends a second week at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart, holds at No. 6 on Streaming Songs and rises 10-6 on Digital Song Sales. (It should sport further gains on next week’s charts, dated Nov. 21, following the Nov. 6 release of its remix featuring Justin Bieber, J Balvin and dior.)
“Mood” tops the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts for an 11th week each and Hot Rap Songs for a fourth frame. (All three charts employ the same methodology as the Hot 100.)
Grande’s “Positions” descends to No. 2 on the Hot 100 after it entered atop the Nov. 7-dated chart. It spends a second week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs (25.6 million, down 28%) and jumps 41-28 on Radio Songs (27.5 million, up 40%), good for the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer award.
(A week ago, as “Positions” premiered at No. 1 on the Hot 100, Grande extended her record streak of having debuted the lead single from each of her first six proper studio albums in the top 10. “The Way,” featuring Mac Miller, opened at No. 10, ushering in her first album, Yours Truly, in 2013; “Problem,” featuring Iggy Azalea, began at No. 3 as the first single from 2014’s My Everything; the title track from Dangerous Woman bowed at No. 10 in 2016; “No Tears Left to Cry” started at No. 3, introducing Sweetener, in 2018; and the Thank U, Next title cut roared in as her first No. 1 in 2018.)
Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk, rises 4-3 on the Hot 100, after debuting at its No. 2 peak. It adds a second frame atop the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where a week earlier it became Drake’s record-setting 21st No. 1.
The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” lifts 5-4 on the Hot 100, after spending four weeks at No. 1. It ranks in the top five for a record-extending 32nd week, while adding a 38th week in the top 10, the second-most ever, after Post Malone’s “Circles” (39 weeks, 2019-20). “Lights” leads the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart for a record-furthering 34th week.
Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope,” featuring Charlie Puth, ascends 6-5 on the Hot 100, completing the longest climb ever to the top five: 45 weeks.

Notably, the songs above have followed distinct patterns in their scenic trips to the Hot 100’s top five, with “I Hope,” “Cruise” and “Amazed” all having become country radio hits before crossing to pop formats. “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 leads Adult Pop Songs for a fourth week and continues in the top 10 on Pop Songs and on Adult Contemporary).
Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive,” the former record holder with its 42-week journey to the Hot 100’s top five, similarly crossed over from rock to pop formats.
Meanwhile, the Yuletide hits above reached the region over multiple chart runs, with strong streaming sums having aided their rises in recent years (including Mariah Carey’s coronation with 1994’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” last holiday season).
“I Hope” concurrently tops the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart for a 15th week.
Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo’s “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” rebounds 8-6 on the Hot 100, after a week at No. 1, aided by BTS remixes, and Internet Money and Gunna’s “Lemonade,” featuring Don Toliver and NAV, rises to a new No. 7 high from No. 9.
Grande’s “34+35” debuts at No. 8 on the Hot 100 with 21.7 million streams, 5.7 million airplay audience impressions and 3,000 sold in the tracking week.
Grande’s “Positions” and “34+35” are both being promoted as radio singles by Republic Records, with the tracks climbing 18-15 and debuting at No. 32, respectively, on Pop Songs.
Grande adds her 18th total Hot 100 top 10 dating to her first, “The Way.” Since that song debuted at No. 10 on April 13, 2013 (before peaking at No. 9 that June), her 18 top 10s are the most among women and second only to Drake’s 31 among all acts in that span.
Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez charge onto the Hot 100 at No. 9 with “Dakiti,” with 22.2 million streams, 3.2 million in airplay audience and 5,000 sold in the tracking week. As it concurrently starts at No. 1 on the multi-metric Hot Latin Songs chart, it’s the first title ever to have entered the Hot 100 in the top 10 and launched atop Hot Latin Songs simultaneously.
“Dakiti” is Bad Bunny’s third Hot 100 top 10, all of which have debuted in the tier. It follows his Cardi B and J Balvin team-up “I Like It,” which began at No. 8 and spent a week at No. 1, and “MIA,” featuring Drake (No. 5 debut and peak), both in 2018.
“MIA” and now “Dakiti” are the only all-Spanish-language songs ever to have debuted in the Hot 100’s top 10.
Cortez, meanwhile, earns his first Hot 100 top 10.
Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, Cardi B’s “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, descends 7-10, after four weeks at No. 1.
