Lewis Capaldi’s ‘Someone You Loved’ Returns to No. 1 on Hot 100, Maroon 5 Adds 15th Top 10 With ‘Memories’

Plus, Post Malone's 'Circles' moves up to No. 2.

Lewis Capaldi‘s “Someone You Loved” revisits the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The ballad first reached the summit two weeks ago and dipped to No. 2 last week when Selena Gomez’s “Lose You to Love Me” became her first No. 1. Gomez’s song drops to No. 5 on the latest list.

Meanwhile, Maroon 5 achieves its 15th Hot 100 top 10, over 15 years after its first, as “Memories” ascends from No. 11 to No. 9.

Let’s run down the top 10 on the Hot 100 (dated Nov. 16), which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Nov. 12).

Capaldi’s breakthrough hit concurrently adds a second week at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart, with 101 million audience impressions, essentially even week-over-week, in the week ending Nov. 10, according to Nielsen Music. It lifts 8-7 on Digital Song Sales, with 13,000 downloads sold in the week ending Nov. 7, also on par from the week before. On Streaming Songs, it revisits the top 10, rising 11-9 with 24 million U.S. streams, down 3%, in the week ending Nov. 10.

“I never thought we were writing a big song here,” Capaldi mused on Oct. 28, just after learning that he’d achieved his first Hot 100 No. 1. “We just wrote a song and, thankfully, people seemed to like it.”


Post Malone’s “Circles” hits another new Hot 100 high, rising 3-2. The song jumps 5-3 on Digital Song Sales (16,000, up 10%), holds at No. 4 on Radio Songs (83.6 million, up 5%) and climbs 9-6 on Streaming Songs (24.5 million, down less than 1%).

The singer/rapper collects his fifth top-two Hot 100 hit, after the No. 1s “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage (for eight weeks, 2017), “Psycho,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign (one, 2018), and “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse),” with Swae Lee (one, January), and the No. 2-peaking “Wow.” (April).

As previously reported, “Circles” becomes Post Malone’s fourth No. 1 on the Pop Songs airplay chart, while parent album Hollywood’s Bleeding spends a fifth week atop the Billboard 200, marking the first set to achieve the feat in over a year.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s former one-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Señorita” rebounds 4-3 and Lizzo’s former seven-week leader “Truth Hurts” rises 5-4, while spending an 11th week at No. 1 on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs genre charts (which employ the same multi-metric methodology as the Hot 100).


Gomez’s “Lose” falls to No. 5 after a week topping the Hot 100. Still, it surges 41-26 on Radio Songs, up 43% to 34.6 million in reach, good for top Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100. It drops from the summit of both Streaming Songs (No. 3; 26.4 million, down 32%) and Digital Song Sales (No. 4; 16,000, down 60%).

Lizzo’s other, and second total, Hot 100 top 10, “Good as Hell,” holds at its No. 6 high. The song soared from No. 14 a week ago following the Oct. 25 premiere of its remix with Ariana Grande. (For a second straight week, the Grande remix accounts for less than half of all Hot 100 points for “Good” in the tracking week, thus, again precluding her from being listed on the chart.) The track adds a second week atop the Hot R&B Songs survey.

Chris Brown’s “No Guidance,” featuring Drake, rises 8-7 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 5, and Lil Nas X’s “Panini” pushes 9-8, also after hitting No. 5.

Maroon 5’s “Memories” steps 11-9 on the Hot 100, lifting 3-2 on Digital Song Sales (18,000, up 11%), 13-11 on Radio Songs (57.7 million, up 9%) and 26-19 on Streaming Songs (16.6 million, up less than 1%).

The Adam Levine-led band notches its 15th Hot 100 top 10, over 15 years after its first, “This Love,” which reached No. 5 in April 2004. The sum is the best among group/duos in that span, ahead of runners-up The Black Eyed Peas, with nine. Next up in the category over that stretch: One Direction (six) and The Chainsmokers (five).

Along those lines, for a second straight week, an act extends its span of Hot 100 top 10s to over 15 years: last week, Kanye West’s “Follow God” launched at No. 7, marking his 18th top 10, after he’d first appeared in the region in January 2004. (“Follow” falls to No. 37 on the latest Hot 100; still, it leads Hot Christian Songs and Hot Gospel Songs for a second week each.)


Additionally, 12 of Maroon 5’s 15 promoted singles dating to 2011’s four-week No. 1 “Moves Like Jagger,” featuring Christina Aguilera, have hit the Hot 100’s top 10 (and the other three each hit the top 25). The band also banks its first set of consecutive top 10s since “Animals” and “Sugar” in 2014-15, as “Memories” follows the band’s second-longest-leading No. 1 (of four), “Girls Like You” (featuring Cardi B), which ruled for seven weeks beginning in September 2018.

Speaking of “Sugar,” “Memories” is Maroon 5’s first Hot 100 top 10 unaccompanied by another act since that single. Between “Sugar” and “Girls,” the group reached No. 6 with “Don’t Wanna Know,” featuring Kendrick Lamar, and No. 9 with “What Lovers Do,” featuring SZA, both in 2017.

Capping the Hot 100’s top 10, Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber’s “10,000 Hours” returns to the bracket (12-10), after debuting at its No. 4 high. The collaboration crowns Hot Country Songs for a fifth frame.
