Drake dominates the Billboard Hot 100 (dated June 11) for a third nonconsecutive week with “One Dance” (featuring WizKid and Kyla), which also takes over at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart. Plus, Ariana Grande‘s “Dangerous Woman” returns to the Hot 100’s top 10 at a new high of No. 8.

Following the Memorial Day holiday, let’s run down the Hot 100’s top 10 and more; the airplay, sales and streaming-based Hot 100 and all charts will update on tomorrow (June 1).

As “Dance,” released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, leads the Hot 100 for a third week, it lifts 2-1 on Radio Songs (134 million in audience, up 11 percent, according to Nielsen Music). Drake scores his third Radio Songs No. 1 and second as a lead artist: his debut hit, “Best I Ever Had,” led for two weeks in 2009 and Rihanna‘s “What’s My Name?,” featuring Drake, ruled Radio Songs for seven weeks in 2011.

“Dance” earns a sixth week atop the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs streaming chart with 28.1 million on-demand U.S. plays (down 7 percent) in the week ending May 26. It keeps at No. 2 on the overall Streaming Songs chart, after leading the list three weeks ago, with 30.9 million U.S. streams (down 6 percent). “Dance” additionally holds at No. 2 on the Digital Songs sales chart, which it led for two weeks, with 123,000 downloads sold (down 6 percent). The track also spends a fourth week atop Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

As noted when the song first crowned the Hot 100, “Dance” is Drake’s first Hot 100 No. 1 in a lead role, following two as a featured artist, both on tracks with Rihanna as the lead: “What’s My Name?” (one week, 2010) and “Work,” which spent its last of nine weeks at No. 1 on the April 30-dated chart.

Drake’s ‘Views’ Still No. 1 on Billboard 200, Ariana Grande & Blake Shelton Debut at Nos. 2 & 3

“Dance” is from Drake’s album Views, which, as previously reported, logs a fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Desiigner‘s former two-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Panda” remains at No. 2. It tops Streaming Songs for a sixth total week, drawing 38.6 million domestic streams (down 4 percent). The track is steady at No. 3 on Digital Songs (90,000, down 3 percent) and No. 12 on Radio Songs (69 million, up 1 percent). The rapper’s breakthrough hit earns an eighth week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart.

Following its debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100 two weeks ago, becoming just the 26th single to start at the summit in the chart’s history, Justin Timberlake‘s “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” holds at No. 3. Still, it spends a third week at No. 1 on Digital Songs (174,000, down 15 percent). Of his six Digital Songs No. 1s, only one has spent more time on top: “SexyBack” (five weeks, 2006); three others led for two weeks each.

“Feeling” flies 4-2 on Radio Songs (132 million, up 22 percent), adding the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer award for a second week, and slips 7-8 on Streaming Songs (13.7 million, down 11 percent). The single is from the animated film Trolls, not due in theaters until Nov. 4; Timberlake voices a role, joining stars including Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani and James Corden. Timberlake also serves as an executive producer for the film’s music, with the soundtrack due in September. Timberlake’s own next album, his first since 2013, could arrive early next year, according to RCA Records.

At No. 4 on the Hot 100 we see the first recipient of gains sparked in part by the May 22 Billboard Music Awards (as the sales tracking week for this week’s charts covers May 20-26). Following Fifth Harmony‘s performance of “Work From Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on the BBMAs, the song rises 5-4 on the Hot 100, marking a new career Hot 100 high for both acts. The track jumps 10-7 on Digital Songs (73,000, up 26 percent) and becomes 5H’s first top five hit on Radio Songs (6-4; 105 million, up 5 percent). On Streaming Songs, “Work” holds at No. 5 (15.8 million, down 2 percent). The group’s first No. 1 on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart leads the list for a second week (and is the first No. 1 by a girl group on the tally in nearly 10 years, since The Pussycat Dolls led for two weeks in September 2006 with “Buttons,” featuring Snoop Dogg).

The Chainsmokers earn their first top five hit on the Hot 100, as “Don’t Let Me Down,” featuring Daya, climbs 6-5. The duo reached No. 6 with its prior single (and first top 10), “Roses,” featuring Rozes. Daya likewise achieves her first top five (having arrived with her own “Hide Away,” which peaked at No. 23 in March). “Down” dips 4-5 on Digital Songs, but gains by 5 percent to 85,000, and rises 8-6 on Radio Songs (100 million, up 11 percent) and 8-7 on Streaming Songs (14.9 million, up 3 percent). The collab concurrently notches a sixth week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

Another of the Billboard Music Awards performers, Lukas Graham, drops 4-6 on the Hot 100 with “7 Years,” which peaked at No. 2. Still, the song is up by 7 percent to 70,000 sold following the BBMAs. It falls to No. 3 after four weeks atop Radio Songs (112 million, down 13 percent). Just below on the Hot 100, Mike Posner‘s “I Took a Pill in Ibiza” stays at No. 7 after reaching No. 4.

Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” returns to the Hot 100’s top 10 at a new peak of No. 8, surging from No. 14, as her third studio album of the same name launches at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Grande performed the song, in a medley with new single “Into You,” on the BBMAs; “Into You” re-enters the Hot 100 at a new peak of No. 51. “Woman” bounds 25-14 on Streaming Songs (10.6 million, up 15 percent), good for top Streaming Gainer honors on the Hot 100; 13-11 on Radio Songs (71 million, up 9 percent); and 19-18 on Digital Songs (47,000, up 8 percent).

(Chart fine print: the Digital Songs sales gains of “Woman” and “Into You,” the latter up 62 percent to 21,000, do not reflect iTunes customers who opted to “complete” purchases of Dangerous Woman by upgrading earlier purchases of the songs to a full album. Effectively, those who completed the album were returning the songs, thus translating to net sales totals. For the purposes of the Hot 100, gross sales regardless of returned volume contribute to the songs’ overall points totals.)

“Woman” had previously peaked at No. 10 on the Hot 100 upon its debut (April 2), making Grande the first artist to debut in the top 10 with the lead single from each of her first three albums. “The Way” began at No. 10 (April 13, 2013), introducing her debut album Yours Truly, while “Problem” (featuring Iggy Azalea) soared in at No. 3 (May 17, 2014), ushering in follow-up My Everything.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, BBMAs performer and Billboard Chart Achievement Award winner Rihanna hits a new peak with “Needed Me” (10-9), while “Work,” likewise from her latest album, Anti, drops 8-10. Rihanna performed another song from Anti, “Love on the Brain,” on the BBMAs, and the track enters the Hot 100 at No. 83, powered by its No. 37 start on Digital Songs (30,000, up 743 percent).

Other BBMAs performers that surge on the Hot 100 include DNCE, whose No. 9-peaking “Cake by the Ocean” jumps 17-14 (up 41 percent to 48,000 sold); Nick Jonas, whose “Close,” featuring Tove Lo, leaps to a new peak (24-15; up 77 percent to 76,000 sold); and P!nk, whose “Just Like Fire” burns a 26-16 path, also hitting a new high (up 45 percent to 86,000 sold).

Just beyond the Hot 100’s top 20, after Adele premiered the video for her new single “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” on the BBMAs, the track re-enters at a new high of No. 26; it first spent a week at No. 79 when parent album 25 debuted on the Billboard 200 in December. The song returns led by its No. 13 re-entry on Digital Songs (55,000, up 343 percent).
