Lizzo Leads Billboard Hot 100, Post Malone Brings Back Ozzy Osbourne & Lewis Capaldi Lands First Top 10

Lizzo logs a third week atop the Billboard Hot 100 with her first No. 1 on the chart, "Truth Hurts."

Lizzo logs a third week atop the Billboard Hot 100 with her first No. 1 on the chart, “Truth Hurts.”

Plus, Post Malone‘s “Goodbyes,” featuring Young Thug, surges 10-3; “Circles” leaps from No. 7 to No. 4; “Take What You Want,” featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott, debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 8; and former No. 1 “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse),” with Swae Lee, rises 14-10.

Notably, “Take” marks Osbourne’s first Hot 100 top 10 in over 30 years, as the rock legend breaks the record for the most time between top 10s in the chart’s 61-year history. All four songs appear on Post Malone’s new LP Hollywood’s Bleeding, which roars in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Additionally, singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi notches his first Hot 100 top 10, as “Someone You Loved” lifts 11-9.

Let’s run down the top 10 of the Hot 100 (dated Sept. 21), which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Sept. 17).

“Truth Hurts,” released on Nice Life/Atlantic Records, spends a third week atop the Digital Song Sales chart, although down 19% to 31,000 sold in the week ending Sept. 12, according to Nielsen Music. It rises 4-2 on Radio Songs, up 6% to 110.8 million audience impressions in the week ending Sept. 15, while tumbling 3-14 on Streaming Songs, down 16% to 29.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending Sept. 12.

The track concurrently adds a fourth week at No. 1 on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs genre charts (which employ the same methodology as the Hot 100).

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s “Señorita” holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100, after topping the Aug. 31-dated chart. It rules Radio Songs for a second week, up 2% to 111.9 million in audience.


Post Malone’s “Goodbyes” flies 10-3 on the Hot 100, matching its high first set upon its July 20 entrance; “Circles” soars 7-4 in its second week; “Take What You Want” launches at No. 8 on the chart; and “Sunflower” rebounds 14-10. The songs drew 39.1 million, 33 million, 35.7 million and 32.1 million U.S. streams, respectively, in the tracking week; on Radio Songs, “Circles” debuts at No. 32 (28.1 million impressions) and “Goodbyes” and “Sunflower” rank at Nos. 9 (65.8 million) and 33 (27.7 million), respectively.

With “Take,” Post Malone tallies his ninth Hot 100 top 10, while Scott scores his sixth. Osbourne, meanwhile, earns his second Hot 100 top 10 (and ties his best rank), over 30 years after his first: “Close My Eyes Forever,” with Lita Ford, hit No. 8 in 1989. Osbourne’s return to the top tier is record-setting, as he narrowly rewrites the mark, formerly held by Dobie Gray, for the longest break between top 10s:

Longest Gaps Between Hot 100 Top 10s

Ozzy Osbourne, 30 years & three months
June 17, 1989, “Close My Eyes Forever” (duet with Lita Ford)
Sept. 21, 2019, “Take What You Want” (Post Malone feat. Osbourne & Travis Scott)

Dobie Gray, 30 years, two months & one week
May 26, 1973, “Drift Away”
Aug. 2, 2003, “Drift Away” (Uncle Kracker feat. Gray)

Paul McCartney, 29 years & two weeks
Feb. 8, 1986, “Spies Like Us”
Feb. 21, 2015, “FourFiveSeconds” (Rihanna & Kanye West & McCartney)

McCartney continues to hold the record for the longest wait between Hot 100 top 10s among artists in lead roles on both bookending hits. (In between his two songs noted above, McCartney hit the top 10 in 1995-96 as part of The Beatles on “Free as a Bird.”)


Back to Post Malone, he charts four simultaneous Hot 100 top 10s for the first time. He becomes only the sixth act to achieve the feat, joining 50 Cent, The Beatles, Drake, Lil Wayne and T-Pain. Drake set the record for the most concurrent top 10s by charting seven on the July 14, 2018-dated survey (while The Beatles are the only other act with as many as five, which they managed for two weeks in 1964; in the first of those frames, that April 4, they claimed the entire top five, a haul that no other artist has matched).

Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” which led the Hot 100 dated Aug. 24, drops 3-5; Lil Tecca’s “Ran$om” retreats to No. 6 from its No. 4 high, as it spends a fourth week atop Streaming Songs (46.7 million, down 5%); and Chris Brown’s “No Guidance,” featuring Drake, descends to No. 7 from its No. 6 Hot 100 peak, while earning a third week at No. 1 on Hot R&B Songs.

Lewis Capaldi collects his first Hot 100 top 10, as “Someone You Loved” rises 11-9. The ballad bumps 6-4 on Digital Song Sales (17,000, up 2%) and 8-6 on Radio Songs (79 million, up 11%), while dipping 13-23 on Streaming Songs, but with a 9% increase to 22.3 million.

The song by the 22-year-old Scottish artist completes a steady ascent to the Hot 100’s top 10, reaching the bracket in its 18th week in the chart, dating to its May 25 debut. It previously topped the Official UK Singles chart for seven weeks in March and April and has scaled a host of other international surveys. Two proper videos for the song have helped the song’s profile: one released in February and a new clip that premiered at the end of August.


The track is from Capaldi’s debut LP, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, which opened atop the Official UK Albums chart in June and reached a No. 32 high on last week’s, Sept. 14-dated Billboard 200.
