Notably, the ballad, released on Capitol Records, ties for the longest No. 1 Hot 100 run on the label by a solo male in the chart’s 61-year history, as it matches the three-week reign of Kyu Sakamoto’s “Sukiyaki” in 1963.
Let’s run down the top 10 on the Hot 100 (dated Nov. 23), which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Nov. 19).
Capaldi’s breakthrough hit concurrently adds a third week at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart, with 98.1 million audience impressions, down 3%, in the week ending Nov. 17, according to Nielsen Music. It rises 9-7 on Streaming Songs with 24.6 million U.S. streams, up 2%, in the week ending Nov. 14, while dipping 7-8 on Digital Song Sales with 12,000 sold, down 4%, in the same span.
With a third week at No. 1, “Someone” equals the longest Hot 100 rule for a Capitol Records single by a solo male in the list’s history, tying the three-week command of Kyu Sakamoto’s fellow introductory hit “Sukiyaki,” which topped the charts dated June 15, 22 and 29, 1963.
“Someone” breaks out of a tie with two other tracks for the honor: Glen Campbell’s “Rhinestone Cowboy” and Mims’ “This Is Why I’m Hot,” each a two-week leader, in 1975 and 2007, respectively.
The bulk of Capitol No. 1s over the years have belonged to groups and women, with The Beatles and Katy Perry sharing the overall mark for the label’s longest domination, as each act’s respective breakthrough single led for seven weeks: The Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” in 1964, and Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl,” in 2008.
Meanwhile, “Someone” scores the longest command for any Capitol single since 2014, when Perry’s “Dark Horse,” featuring Juicy J, spent four weeks at No. 1. (In between, Halsey tallied two weeks on top this January with “Without Me.”)
For a second straight week, “Someone” wins a close Hot 100 race over Post Malone’s “Circles,” which spends a second frame at its No. 2 high. The latter track pushes 4-2 on Radio Songs (88.4 million, up 6%); slips 3-5 on Digital Song Sales (15,000, down 6%); and holds at No. 6 on Streaming Songs (23 million, down 6%).
Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s former one-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Señorita” is steady at No. 3.
Lizzo’s “Good as Hell” ascends to the Hot 100’s top five (6-4), lifting 5-3 on Radio Songs (85.3 million, up 12%, good for top Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100), while backtracking 5-6 on Digital Song Sales (13,000, down 8%) and 22-25 on Streaming Songs (13.9 million, down 12%).
“Good” adds a third week atop the Hot R&B Songs chart and becomes Lizzo’s second No. 1 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (both of which employ the same multi-metric methodology as the Hot 100), as “Good” supplants her first Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs leader, “Truth Hurts,” which ruled the list for 11 weeks. “Hurts,” meanwhile, drops 4-6 on the Hot 100, which it topped for seven weeks. It paces the multi-metric Hot Rap Songs chart for a 12th frame.
Maroon 5’s “Memories” jumps 9-5 on the Hot 100, as it keeps at No. 2 on Digital Song Sales (17,000, down 4%) and rises 11-9 on Radio Songs (62.9 million, up 9%) and 19-18 on Streaming Songs (17.6 million, up 5%). Maroon 5 earns its 17th Radio Songs top 10 (and 14th in its last 15 visits, dating to 2011), tying for the fifth-most since the survey began in 1990; Rihanna leads with 29, followed by Mariah Carey (23), Drake (22) and Lil Wayne (20). Also each with 17: Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Ludacris, P!nk, T-Pain and Usher. Meanwhile, Destiny’s Child is the only other group with a double-digit top-10 total (10).
“Memories” marks Maroon 5’s 10th top five Hot 100 hit. Dating to the band’s first week in the region on April 24, 2004, the act extends its lead for the most among groups, ahead of The Black Eyed Peas’ seven in that span; One Direction follows with four.
Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, Chris Brown’s “No Guidance,” featuring Drake, repeats at No. 7, after reaching No. 5; Selena Gomez’s “Lose You to Love Me” drops 5-8, two weeks after topping the chart; Lil Nas X’s “Panini” descends 8-9, after hitting No. 5; and Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber’s “10,000 Hours” is stationary at No. 10, after debuting at its No. 4 peak. The collaboration crowns Hot Country Songs for a sixth week.
Beyond the Hot 100’s top 10, notable songs reaching new highs include SHAED’s “Trampoline” (16-14) and Jonas Brothers’ “Only Human” (19-18), while Lil Baby’s “Woah” is the chart’s highest debut, at No. 19, fueled largely by 24 million streams, as it launches at No. 1 on Streaming Songs, marking his third leader on the survey.
Plus, Taylor Swift’s “Lover,” which reached No. 10, becoming her 25th Hot 100 top 10, in September, surges 43-26, as it returns for a second week atop Digital Song Sales, blasting 17-1 with a 192% gain to 20,000 sold in the week ending Nov. 14 after the Nov. 13 arrival of its remix with Shawn Mendes. The ballad also climbs 33-26 on Radio Songs (33.1 million, up 14%), while soaring by 33% to 10.2 million streams. (The remix accounts for less than half of all Hot 100 points for “Lover” in the tracking week, thus precluding Mendes from being listed on the chart.)
