As previously reported, Justin Bieber earns the rare honor of replacing himself at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Feb. 13), as “Love Yourself” rises 2-1, unseating “Sorry” (1-2) after three weeks atop the chart. Plus, Flo Rida and Selena Gomez each add new top 10s and Rihanna roars in at No. 9 with “Work.”
Who else works their magic on the Hot 100 this week?
G-Eazy x Bebe Rexha, “Me, Myself & I”
The team-up continues aiming for the Hot 100’s top 10, rising 16-12. It lifts 8-7 on Digital Songs with 65,000 downloads sold in the tracking week (up 8 percent), according to Nielsen Music, and reaches the Streaming Songs top 10 (11-9; 10.6 million U.S. streams, up 12 percent). The collab also debuts on Radio Songs at No. 41 with a 49 percent burst to 34 million in all-format audience.
Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello, “I Know What You Did Last Summer”
Although the duet dips 24-25 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 20 two weeks ago, it earns a key honor on the Pop Songs airplay chart, rising 11-10. Mendes notches his second top on the tally in as many tries, as prior single “Stitches” led for two weeks in November. Cabello makes her second trip to the top tier and first as a soloist: with Fifth Harmony, she soared to No. 4 in August with “Worth It” (featuring Kid Ink).
Adele, “When We Were Young”
Up 35-29 on the Hot 100, the second single from 25 ranks in the chart’s top 30 for the first time since it debuted at No. 22 on the Dec. 12 chart. Meanwhile, 25 returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The set has sold 7.9 million to date.
Lukas Graham, “7 Years”
The debut hit from the Danish pop band, fronted by Lukas Graham Forchhammer, rockets 96-57 in its second week on the Hot 100. It enters Digital Songs at No. 28, up by 71 percent to 26,000 downloads sold.
Rascal Flatts, “I Like the Sound of That”
The song debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 87 and surges 21-16 on Hot Country Songs. One of its co-writers? Meghan Trainor, who makes her second Hot 100 appearance as a writer on a song recorded by another act. Fifth Harmony’s “Sledgehammer” rose to No. 40 in January 2015.
“Sound” holds a special place for Trainor, who began as a songwriter before signing with Epic as an artist. In July 2014, when her debut smash “All About That Bass” was scaling the Hot 100, she told Billboard that co-writing “Sound” for Rascal Flatts was a “dream come true.”
Meanwhile, Trainor is readying her own new release: “Finally got my first single for my new album,” she beamed on Twitter Jan. 31. “I’m having trouble sleeping [I’m] so excited
