Bruno Mars and Cardi B‘s “Finesse” falls to No. 4 from its No. 3 Hot 100 high, as it leads Hot R&B Songs for an eighth week.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top five, Camila Cabello‘s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, descends 4-5, after topping the Jan. 27-dated chart.

BlocBoy JB’s “Look Alive,” featuring Drake, retreats to No. 6 from it No. 5 Hot 100 peak, although with gains in all metrics, led by its No. 3 rank on Streaming Songs (39.6 million, up 4 percent).

Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line‘s “Meant to Be” returns to its No. 7 Hot 100 high, from No. 8. It tops Hot Country Songs for a 14th week, breaking the record for the most weeks at No. 1 in the chart’s 59-year history for a song with lead female vocals. It passes Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush” (sung by the group’s Karen Fairchild), which led for 13 weeks in 2015.

“Meant” also hits the Radio Songs top 10 (11-8; 80.2 million, up 16 percent), becoming Rexha’s third top 10 and Florida Georgia Line’s second (matching their respective Hot 100 top 10 totals). Twosome FGL becomes the first core country duo or group with multiple Radio Songs top 10s (dating to the chart’s December 1990 inception), passing Dixie Chicks (“Landslide”; No. 8, 2003), Lady Antebellum (“Need You Now”; No. 1, two weeks, 2010) and Lonestar (“Amazed”; No. 5, 2000), each with one. Florida Georgia Line reached No. 8 on Radio Songs (and No. 4 on the Hot 100) in 2013 with its debut hit, “Cruise.”
