Justin Bieber‘s “Love Yourself” returns to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Feb. 27), logging a second total week on top. It also takes over at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart.

Plus, Flo Rida‘s “My House” crowns Digital Songs and Rihanna‘s “Work,” featuring Drake, hits No. 1 on On-Demand Songs and becomes her 20th top five Hot 100 hit. Meanwhile, last week’s No. 1 on the Hot 100, Zayn‘s “Pillowtalk,” which debuted at the summit, tumbles to No. 7.

Let’s run down the Hot 100’s top 10 and more. The airplay, sales and streaming-based Hot 100 and all charts will post on tomorrow (Feb. 17).

“Love Yourself,” released on SchoolBoy/Raymond Braun/Def Jam, rebounds 2-1 on the Hot 100, after first topping the chart two weeks ago. As “Love” returns to No. 1 on the Hot 100, it crowns the Radio Songs chart, where it rises 2-1 with a 4 percent increase to 144 million in weekly audience, according to Nielsen Music. Bieber scores his second Radio Songs No. 1, and second in a row, as “Love” dethrones “Sorry” (after two weeks at No. 1). He’s the first artist to directly succeed himself atop Radio Songs since The Weeknd, whose “Can’t Feel My Face” gave way to “The Hills” on the Oct. 10 chart.

“Love” lifts 3-2 on Streaming Songs (17.1 million U.S. streams, up 3 percent), returning to its peak on the chart, and 5-4 on Digital Songs (101,000 downloads sold, down 8 percent) in the week ending Feb. 11; it led the latter list for three weeks.

Twenty One Pilots ‘Mean So Many Things to So Many People,’ Says Fueled by Ramen Exec (Exclusive Q&A)

Twenty One Pilots‘ “Stressed Out” hits a new high on the Hot 100, rising 4-2. The track climbs 3-2 on Radio Songs (141 million, up 7 percent) and 4-3 on Digital Songs (102,000, down 9 percent); and, despite a 4-6 dip on Streaming Songs, it gains by 2 percent to 13.5 million streams. The single, which leads Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart for an eighth week, is the first title that has also appeared on Hot Rock Songs to rank in the Hot 100’s top two in more than a year, since Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” spent its third and final week at its No. 2 peak on the Jan. 3, 2015, Hot 100.

Back to Bieber: “Sorry” holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100 after spending three weeks at No. 1. It rebounds 2-1 for an eighth total week atop Streaming Songs (17.8 million, down 4 percent).

Future Scores Third No. 1 Album on Billboard 200 Chart

Rihanna’s Drake-assisted “Work” enters the Hot 100’s top five, rising 7-4 in its third week. The song is Rihanna’s 20th top five Hot 100 hit, making her just the eighth artist to hit that milestone.

Here is an updated look at the acts with the most top five Hot 100 hits:
29, The Beatles
28, Madonna
26, Mariah Carey
24, Janet Jackson
21, Elvis Presley (whose career predated the Hot 100’s 1958 launch by two years)
20, Michael Jackson
20, Rihanna
20, Stevie Wonder

(Among artists with the most Hot 100 top 10s, Rihanna ranks in a tie for fifth place.)

Partly powering the ascent of “Work,” the song zooms 41-4 on Streaming Songs (15 million, up 222 percent) and 16-1 on the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (13 million, up 209 percent, becoming her third No. 1 on the tally), with the track’s arrival on Spotify, which accounts for 47 percent of its overall streams, heavily pushing its rise. “Work” also charges 20-13 on Radio Songs (63 million, up 23 percent), winning the Hot 100’s top Streaming and Airplay Gainer awards. On Digital Songs, the single rises 3-2 (113,000, down 27 percent).

“Work” also leads the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a second nonconsecutive week.

Capping the Hot 100’s top five, Flo Rida’s “My House” rebounds to its peak (8-5) and jumps 6-1 (136,000, up 26 percent) to become his fourth No. 1 on Digital Songs. He previously led the sales list with “Low” (featuring T-Pain) (13 weeks, 2007-08); “Right Round” (six, 2009); and, “Whistle” (three, 2012). “House” hikes 13-9 on Streaming Songs (11.1 million, up 23 percent), becoming his second top 10 on the chart, and 16-11 on Radio Songs (68 million, up 18 percent).

Adele’s “Hello” descends 5-6 on the Hot 100 after logging 10 weeks at No. 1, while Zayn’s “Pillowtalk” slides 1-7 after debuting at the top. Similar to previous highly-anticipated singles that make a splashy start and then regress in their second week, “Pillowtalk” drops 1-5 on Digital Songs (86,000, down 68 percent) and 1-3 on Streaming Songs (16.9 million, down 24 percent). Still, it nears Radio Songs with a 64 percent burst to 29 million.

Notably, “Pillowtalk” makes the greatest descent from No. 1 on the Hot 100 in more than five years, since Rihanna’s “What’s My Name?,” featuring Drake, also fell 1-7, on the Nov. 27, 2010, chart. (Among songs that debuted at No. 1, “Pillowtalk” claims the biggest second-week slide, passing three songs that each dropped 1-6: Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me,” in 2011; Eminem’s “Not Afraid,” in 2010; and Fantasia’s “I Believe,” in 2004.)

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha’s “Me, Myself & I” reaches a new best rank (10-8) and rules Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart for a second nonconsecutive week; The Chainsmokers “Roses,” featuring Rozes, holds at No. 9 on the Hot 100 after rising to No. 6 and leads Hot Dance/Electronic Songs for an eighth week (Rozes’ real name is Elizabeth Mencel; how’d she get her nickname? Find out here); and, Shawn Mendes’ “Stitches” returns to the Hot 100’s top 10 (11-10) after peaking at No. 4.
