Drake's 'Nice for What' reigns for a sixth total week. Plus, Lil Baby & Drake's "Yes Indeed" tops the Streaming Songs chart.

Drake‘s “Nice for What” rules the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a sixth total week. With his latest frame on top, Drake ties Michael Jackson for the second-most career weeks logged at No. 1 among solo males (37 each) in the chart’s 59-year history, with the pair trailing only Usher (47 weeks) for the lead in the category.

Meanwhile, Lil Baby and Drake take over atop the Streaming Songs chart with “Yes Indeed,” which holds at its No. 6 Hot 100 high, and Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin return to the Hot 100’s top 10 with “I Like It,” at a new No. 7 peak, following the premiere of its official video.

Let’s run down the top 10 of the Hot 100 (dated June 9), which blends all-genre streaming, airplay and sales data. All charts will update on tomorrow (June 5).

“Nice,” released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, earns Drake his 37th cumulative week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, totaled by his five No. 1s; he previously led as featured on Rihanna’s “What’s My Name? (one week, 2010) and “Work” (nine weeks, 2016) and with his own “One Dance,” featuring WizKid and Kyla (10 weeks, 2016), and “God’s Plan” (11 weeks, 2018).

Drake matches Michael Jackson for the second-most weeks spent at No. 1 among solo males, after Usher. Among all artists, Drake and Jackson now share seventh place:

(With featured billings an established element of R&B/hip-hop, Drake has earned 27 of his 37 weeks atop the Hot 100 in a lead role and 10 as a featured artist. Usher has posted all 47 of his weeks at No. 1, from nine No. 1s, as a lead, or co-lead, artist, while Jackson was billed as a lead or co-lead for all 37 of his weeks at the summit, via 13 toppers; additionally, The Jackson 5, with Jackson as a member, tallied 10 weeks at No. 1 thanks to their four leaders, all in 1970.)

“Nice” concurrently collects a sixth week at No. 1 on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.


Post Malone‘s “Psycho,” featuring  Ty Dolla $ign, returns to its No. 2 Hot 100 peak, from No. 4. The track previously ranked at the runner-up spot in its debut week (March 10) and four weeks ago (May 12) and has spent all 14 of its frames on the chart in the top five. The track surges 9-1 for a second week atop the Digital Song Sales chart, up 36 percent to 31,000 sold in the week ending May 31, according to Nielsen Music (helped by a 69-cent sale price in the iTunes Store).

Meanwhile, Drake’s “God’s Plan” keeps at No. 3 on the Hot 100 and has now logged all 19 of its weeks on the Hot 100 in the top three, a feat that no other song has achieved from its debut; the song inked its first 11 weeks at No. 1, followed by three weeks at No. 2 and now five frames at No. 3. (“Plan” passed three songs that each spent their first 16 weeks in the top three: Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” in 2017; The Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling,”  in 2009; and, Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day,” in 1995-96.)

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top five, Childish Gambino‘s “This Is America” falls 2-4, after two weeks at No. 1, and Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey‘s “The Middle” holds at its No. 5 high, as it leads Radio Songs for a fourth week (115.7 million in audience, up 1 percent, in the week ending June 3) and Hot Dance/Electronic Songs for an 18th week.


Lil Baby and Drake’s “Yes Indeed” is steady at its No. 6 Hot 100 peak and crowns Streaming Songs for the first time, despite a 5 percent decline to 37.6 million U.S. streams in the week ending May 31. It also rules the audio subscription services-based On-Demand Streaming Songs chart for a second week with 26.9 million on-demand U.S. audio streams (down 17 percent).

Lil Baby lands his first Streaming Songs No. 1, while Drake adds his record-breaking fifth; he passes Justin Bieber, with four dating to the chart’s Jan. 26, 2013, inception. (Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift follow with three No. 1s apiece.)

Following the May 29 arrival of its official video, Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin’s “I Like It” returns to the Hot 100’s top 10, roaring 19-7 for a new peak. The collab climbs 15-5 on Streaming Songs, up 57 percent to 31 million domestic streams. (The track debuted at No. 8 on the Hot 100 dated April 8 and spent one prior week until this week in the top tier, having dipped to No. 9 in its second week.)

Ella Mai‘s first Hot 100 top 10, “Boo’d Up,” repeats at its No. 8 high, as it leads Hot R&B Songs for a third week.

Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line‘s No. 2-peaking “Meant to Be” descends 7-9 on the Hot 100, while topping Hot Country Songs for a 27th week.

Closing out the Hot 100’s top 10, Ariana Grande‘s No. 3-peaking “No Tears Left to Cry” backtracks 9-10.


Just beyond the Hot 100’s upper bracket, Shawn Mendes soars 20-11 (a new peak) with “In My Blood,” as his self-titled third LP, featuring the song, launches atop the Billboard 200; and Juice WRLD earns his first top 20 hit, as “Lucid Dreams” darts 35-15. Plus, Drake’s “I’m Upset” debuts at No. 19, as it opens at No. 3 on Digital Song Sales (27,000) and No. 11 on Streaming Songs (21 million); Drake charts his 164th Hot 100 entry, extending his record for the most among soloists.
