Hot 100 Chart Moves: P!nk, Bruno Mars & Logic Hit the Top 40
"What About Us," "Versace on the Floor" & "1-800-273-8255" all reach the region.
As previously reported, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, becomes just the second single to reign for at least 15 weeks in the 59-year history of the Billboard Hot 100, as it leads the list (dated Sept. 2) for a 15th frame. Only Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men‘s “One Sweet Day” has spent more time at No. 1: 16 weeks, in 1995-96.
Beyond “Despacito,” Cardi B blasts from No. 8 to No. 3 on the Hot 100 with her debut hit “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” and Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You” ties the record for the most weeks (32) spent in the top 10.
