Adele's "Easy on Me" rules the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for a second week. Plus, Doja Cat's "Need to Know" rises from No. 11 to No. 9 on the Hot 100, becoming her fourth top 10.

Adele‘s “Easy on Me” rules the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for a second week.

Plus, Doja Cat‘s “Need to Know” rises from No. 11 to No. 9 on the Hot 100, becoming her fourth top 10 entry.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Nov. 6) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Nov. 2). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

“Easy on Me,” released at 7 p.m. ET Oct. 14 on Columbia Records, drew 61.5 million radio airplay audience impressions (down 4%) and 31.8 million U.S. streams (down 41%) and sold 23,100 downloads (down 69%) in the Oct. 22-28 tracking week, according to MRC Data.

The ballad leads the Streaming Songs chart for a second week; drops to No. 3 after a week atop Digital Song Sales; and keeps at its No. 4 best on Radio Songs (down in audience in the Oct. 22-28 tracking frame, after multiple chains gave it concentrated play Oct. 14-15, helping lead to its record arrival on the airplay ranking).


A week earlier, the song vaulted 68-1 on the Oct. 30-dated Hot 100, following its first full week of tracking.

Notably, all five of Adele’s Hot 100 No. 1s have led for multiple weeks, as “Easy on Me” follows “Rolling in the Deep” (seven, 2011), “Someone Like You” (five, 2011), “Set Fire to the Rain” (two, 2012) and “Hello” (10, 2015-16). Adele spends her 26th cumulative week atop the chart (thus, the equivalent of six total months at the summit). Dating to her first week at No. 1 (May 21, 2011), Adele ties Rihanna for the most weeks atop the chart among women in that span; overall, they trail only Drake (52) and Justin Bieber (32).

The Kid LAROI and Bieber’s “Stay” keeps at No. 2 on the Hot 100, after seven weeks at No. 1, as it rules Radio Songs for a seventh week (90.8 million, up 1%).

“Stay” concurrently crowns the Pop Airplay chart for a 10th week, becoming just the 15th song to reign for double-digit weeks since the survey began in October 1992, among exactly 400 total toppers. It’s the first title to achieve the feat since Post Malone’s “Circles” (10 weeks, November 2019-February 2020).


Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow’s “Industry Baby” repeats at No. 3 on the Hot 100, two weeks after it led, as it logs a 10th week atop both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which use the same multi-metric methodology as the Hot 100.

Walker Hayes’ “Fancy Like” is steady at No. 4 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 3, as (like whipped cream atop an Applebee’s Oreo Shake) it leads the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart for a 16th week.

Ed Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” is stationary at No. 5 on the Hot 100, after hitting No. 2; Drake’s “Way 2 Sexy,” featuring Future and Young Thug, drops 5-6, following its No. 1 entrance in September; Sheeran’s “Shivers” pushes 9-7 for a new high; and Olivia Rodrigo’s “Good 4 U” drops 7-8, after it dominated in its debut week in May.

Doja Cat’s “Need to Know” ascends to the Hot 100’s top 10, rising 11-9. The track holds at No. 10 on Streaming Songs (13.2 million, down 2%), climbs 14-12 on Radio Songs (44.1 million, up 14%) and stays at No. 35 on Digital Song Sales (2,600, up 1%).


Doja Cat collects her fourth Hot 100 top 10, after “Say So,” featuring Nicki Minaj, ruled for a week in May 2020; Ariana Grande’s “34+35,” featuring Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion,” reached No. 2 in January; and “Kiss Me More,” featuring SZA, hit No. 3 this July. Her two latest top 10s are from her album Planet Her, which debuted as her second top 10 on the Billboard 200 (at its No. 2 peak) in July; the set has spent its first 18 weeks on the chart in the top 10, jumping 7-3 on the latest list.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” dips 8-10, after hitting No. 2. It adds a 41st week in the top 10, the second-longest such run in the chart’s history. The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” leads with 57 weeks in the top 10 (February 2020-April 2021).
