DaBaby‘s “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, ascends to No. 1, from No. 3, on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. DaBaby scores his first Hot 100 leader and Roddy Ricch adds his second.

Plus, SAINt JHN‘s “Roses” rises 14-10 on the Hot 100, marking his first top 10 on the tally.

Let’s run down the top 10 of the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated June 13) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (June 9).

“Rockstar,” released on SouthCoast/Interscope Records, is the 1,104th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s nearly 62-year history. The song is from DaBaby’s album Blame It on Baby, which bowed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated May 2.

The track posts its third week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, with 34.8 million U.S. streams (down 2%) in the week ending June 4, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It lifts 5-4, reaching a new high, on Digital Song Sales with 11,000 sold (down 10%) in the week ending June 4 and pushes 44-36 on Radio Songs with 20 million audience impressions (up 22%) in the week ending June 7.

Here are other honors attached to the song’s Hot 100 coronation.

Repeat ‘Rockstar’s: Sixteen different compositions that share exact titles have topped the Hot 100, as “Rockstar” joins the club. It follows Post Malone’s “Rockstar” (again, a different composition), featuring 21 Savage, which reigned for eight weeks beginning in October 2017.

Adele had last bookended such a pairing, when her “Hello” began a 10-week command in November 2015, after Lionel Richie’s different ballad titled “Hello” led for two weeks in May 1984.

38’s most special: DaBaby boasts 38 Hot 100 career entries at the time of his first No. 1. He first reached the ranking just over a year ago, when “Suge” entered the chart dated April 13, 2019. The track reached No. 7 last July, marking his first top 10; “Rockstar” graced the top 10 upon its debut at No. 9 six weeks ago, on the May 2 chart.

Nicki Minaj holds the record for the most Hot 100 entries until landing a first leader, as she ruled for the first time on her 109th try.


Roddy Ricch’s first 2 No. 1s in same year: Roddy Ricch, meanwhile, collects his second Hot 100 No. 1, both achieved in 2020: “The Box” dominated for 11 weeks starting in January.

He’s the first artist to notch his first two Hot 100 No. 1s in the same year since Ed Sheeran, whose “Shape of You” and “Perfect,” with Beyoncé, each secured the top spot in 2017.

In the past decade, five other acts each earned their first Hot 100 leader and followed with a second the same year: The Weeknd (“Can’t Feel My Face,” “The Hills,” 2015); Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (“Thrift Shop,” featuring Wanz, “Can’t Hold Us,” featuring Ray Dalton, 2013); Adele (“Rolling in the Deep,” “Someone Like You,” 2011); Bruno Mars (as featured on B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You,” “Just the Way You Are,” 2010); and Kesha (“TiK ToK,” “We R Who We R,” 2010).

6 weeks, 6 new No. 1s: The last six weeks have seen six songs each spend a first week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, as “Rockstar” follows Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain on Me,” which debuted atop the June 6 chart; Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage,” featuring Beyoncé (May 30); Grande and Justin Bieber’s “Stuck With U” (May 23); Doja Cat’s “Say So,” featuring Minaj (May 16); and The Scotts, Travis Scott and Kid Cudi’s “The Scotts” (May 9).

As noted last week, the turnover at the top is the most for songs tallying their first weeks at the summit since seven songs each logged their first week each on top over seven weeks from Sept. 29 through Nov. 10, 1990.


Record 6 straight No. 1 collabs: Meanwhile, the last six weeks have featured six collaborations at No. 1 on the Hot 100, as listed above. The run marks a new record streak, surpassing a stretch of five consecutive collaborative leaders:

“Cheap Thrills,” Sia feat. Sean Paul, Aug. 6, 2016, four weeks at No. 1
“Closer,” The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey, Sept. 3, 2016, 12
“Black Beatles,” Rae Sremmurd feat. Gucci Mane, Nov. 26, 2016, seven
“Starboy,” The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk, Jan. 7, 2017, one
“Bad and Boujee,” Migos feat. Lil Uzi Vert, Jan. 21, 2017, three

In a case of chart whiplash, the current streak follows 35 straight weeks of leaders by only singularly-billed acts, the longest such run in over two decades.

Interscope x 2: Interscope scores its second consecutive Hot 100 No. 1, as “Rockstar” supplants Lady Gaga and Grande’s “Rain on Me.” The label banks back-to-back leaders for the first time since 2009, when it tallied three in a row, also thanks in part to Gaga: Her “Poker Face” (one week at No. 1) and The Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” (12) and “I Gotta Feeling” (14), from that April 11 through Oct. 10.

No. 1 R&B/hip-hop & rap: “Rockstar” concurrently hits the top of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which employ the same multi-metric formula as the Hot 100. DaBaby earns his first leader on each list and Roddy Ricch scores his second, after “The Box.”

Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage,” featuring Beyoncé, holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100 after it led the May 30-dated chart. It rebounds for a second week atop Digital Song Sales (3-1; 14,000, down 18%), rises 3-2 on Streaming Songs (26.4 million, down 10%) and repeats at No. 6 on Radio Songs (53.6 million, up 2%).

The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” rises 4-3 on the Hot 100, after four weeks at No. 1. It rules Radio Songs for a ninth week, with 76.3 million in audience (down 1%), and adds a 12th week atop the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart.


Doja Cat’s former one-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Say So” lifts 5-4 and Lady Gaga and Grande’s “Rain on Me” falls from No. 1 to No. 5 in its second week on the chart, as it dips 2-3 on Streaming Songs (20 million, down 36%) and tumbles from No. 1 to No. 11 on Digital Song Sales (6,000, down 91%), while debuting at No. 41 on Radio Songs (17.6 million, up 59%). “Rain” rules the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a second frame.

Drake’s “Toosie Slide” is steady at No. 6 on the Hot 100, after spending a week at No. 1; Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” holds at No. 7, after peaking at No. 2; Justin Bieber’s “Intentions,” featuring Quavo, climbs 9-8, returning to its high; and Roddy Ricch’s former 11-week leader “The Box” drops 8-9.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, SAINt JHN’s “Roses” jumps 14-10, marking his first top 10 on the chart. It returns to the Streaming Songs top 10 at a new best rank (14-9; 16.7 million, up 15%), while also reaching new highs on Digital Song Sales (9-7; 8,000, down 4%) and Radio Songs (25-22; 26.8 million, up 10%).


SAINt JHN first released “Roses” in July 2016. Imanbek’s remix arrived last September, spurring the song’s global chart surge. The track led the Official UK Singles chart for two weeks beginning in March and Hot Dance/Electronic Songs for six weeks starting in April. The song was released on the Hitco Entertainment label, which achieves its first Hot 100 top 10.
