The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Jan. 16) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Jan. 12). 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 17.5 million U.S. streams (essentially even week-over-week) and sold 6,000 downloads (down 11%) in the week ending Jan. 7, according to MRC Data. It also tallied 84.2 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 2%) in the week ending Jan. 10.
“Mood” spends an 11th week at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart, rises 5-1 for a second total week atop Streaming Songs and drops 6-10 on Digital Song Sales. It tops the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts for a 19th week each and Hot Rap Songs for a 13th frame, with all three charts using the same methodology as the Hot 100.
Ariana Grande’s “Positions” holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100. It ruled the Nov. 7-dated chart upon its debut.
The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” keeps at No. 3 on the Hot 100. The song spent four weeks at No. 1 (eventually ranking as the Hot 100’s top hit of all of 2020) and logs its 57th total week on the tally. It adds a record-extending 44th week in the top 10 and a record-furthering 35th week in the top five. The track also claims a seventh week at No. 1 on the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and a record-padding 41st frame atop Hot R&B Songs.
Justin Bieber’s “Holy,” featuring Chance the Rapper, repeats at No. 4 on the Hot 100, a notch below its peak reached in its debut week in October.
Rounding out the Hot 100’s top five, Chris Brown and Young Thug’s “Go Crazy” reaches the region, lifting 6-5 (79.6 million airplay impressions; 8.2 million streams; and 2,000 sold). The track completes the lengthiest ascent to the top five (35 weeks) for a song by lead males in the Hot 100’s 62-year history, and the third-longest overall, after Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope,” featuring Charlie Puth (45 weeks, 2020), and Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” (42 weeks, 2012-13).
Justin Bieber’s new single “Anyone” launches at No. 6 on the Hot 100, with 16.5 million streams and 22,000 sold in the week ending Jan. 7, following its Jan. 1 release. It also drew 14.2 million in radio reach in the week ending Jan. 10. The track opens at No. 1 on Digital Song Sales, where Bieber adds his 13th leader, passing Drake (12) for the most among solo males. Among all acts, only Taylor Swift (21) and Rihanna (14) have more. On Streaming Songs, “Anyone” arrives at No. 2.
As Bieber banks his 22nd Hot 100 top 10, he becomes one of 17 artists, and nine solo males, with at least that many over the chart’s history.

Dua Lipa’s “Levitating,” featuring DaBaby, ascends 10-7 on the Hot 100 for a new high and Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk, backtracks 7-8, after debuting at its No. 2 peak last August.
AJR crashes the Hot 100’s top 10 for the first time, as “Bang!” pushes 11-9 (52.5 million in radio reach; 8.6 million streams; and 11,000 sold). It holds at its No. 2 high on Digital Song Sales and ranks at No. 9 on Radio Songs, where it reached a No. 8 best beginning in late December.
The brother trio from New York, named after Adam, Jack and Ryan Met, charted three Hot 100 entries prior to “Bang!”: “I’m Ready” (No. 65 peak, 2014); “Weak” (No. 73, 2017); and “Burn the House Down” (No. 100, 2018). “I’m Ready” and “Weak” each reached No. 27 on the Pop Airplay chart. The band then hit No. 29 on Pop Airplay with “Sober Up,” featuring Rivers Cuomo (of Weezer), which marked the trio’s turn toward alternative, as the collab topped Alternative Airplay for two weeks in 2018. AJR has since added three more Alternative Airplay top 10s, including “Bang!,” which climbed to No. 2 in June 2020.
“Bang” this week holds at its No. 6 high on Pop Airplay, where it’s AJR’s first top 10, and climbs 5-4 on Adult Pop Airplay, where it’s the act’s first top five hit.
Meanwhile, with “Bang!” released on AJR/BMG/S-Curve, the AJR imprint makes its first appearance in the Hot 100’s top 10; the BMG label logs its second, after Lil Dicky’s “Freaky Friday,” featuring Chris Brown (No. 8, 2018; it was released on Dirty Burd/BMG/Commission); and S-Curve also scores its second, following Andy Grammer’s “Honey, I’m Good.” (No. 9, 2015; S-Curve/Hollywood).
Capping the Hot 100’s top 10, Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” retreats 8-10 after reaching No. 3 in November, as it rules Hot Country Songs for a 24th week.
