"Rockstar" rules for a third week, while "Havana" & "Perfect" soar to the top tier.

Post Malone‘s “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage, tallies a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Nov. 11). Meanwhile, two songs surge to the top 10: Camila Cabello‘s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, bounds 20-7 and Ed Sheeran‘s “Perfect” pounces 18-10.

As we do every Monday, let’s run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends all-genre streaming, airplay and sales data. All charts will update on tomorrow (Oct. 31).

“Rockstar,” released on Republic Records, logs a fifth (nonconsecutive) week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 53 million U.S. streams (down 2 percent), in the week ending Oct. 26, according to Nielsen Music. It dips 2-4 on Digital Song Sales (which it led for a week), down 4 percent to 52,000 downloads sold in the week ending Oct. 26, and jumps 26-19 on Radio Songs with 56 million in all-format audience (up 16 percent) in the week ending Oct. 29.

“Rockstar” concurrently leads the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for a third week each.

Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100 for a third week following three weeks at No. 1. It keeps at No. 2 on Streaming Songs (38.6 million, down 8 percent) and falls 5-8 on Digital Song Sales (33,000, down 11 percent) and 10-11 on Radio Songs (71 million, down 3 percent).

Logic’s “1-800-273-8255,” featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid, is stationary at its No. 3 Hot 100 high. It holds at No. 3 on Streaming Songs (29.3 million, down 6 percent), while rising 6-4 on Radio Songs (88 million, up 5 percent).


Portugal. The Man‘s “Feel It Still” keeps at its No. 4 Hot 100 peak while crowning Radio Songs for a third week (128 million, up 11 percent). The track tops Hot Rock Songs for a fifth week and the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart for a third week and takes over atop the Pop Songs airplay list (2-1), where it’s the group’s first No. 1.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top five, Imagine Dragons’ “Thunder” repeats at its No. 5 Hot 100 high. It slips to No. 2 after two (nonconsecutive) weeks atop Digital Song Sales (60,000, down 10 percent) and becomes the band’s fourth top 10 on Radio Songs, where it charges 14-7 (81 million, up 16 percent).

Demi Lovato hits another new career high on the Hot 100, as “Sorry Not Sorry” rises 7-6. On Radio Songs, it pushes 7-4 (88 million, up 8 percent).

Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, blasts 20-7 on the Hot 100. Following the Oct. 24 release of its official video (aka #HavanaTheMovie, clocking in at 6:42 long), the song lifts 6-4 on Digital Song Sales (42,000, up 20 percent); concurrently hits the Streaming Songs top 10 (18-8; 24.4 million, up 38 percent); and jumps 36-26 on Radio Songs (48 million, up 28 percent).

Cabello collects her second Hot 100 top 10 as a soloist and first as the sole lead artist; “Bad Things,” with Machine Gun Kelly, hit No. 4 in February. (As a member of Fifth Harmony, she reached the top 10 with last year’s No. 4-peaking “Work From Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign.)

Young Thug tallies his first Hot 100 top 10, among 21 entries dating to his first in 2014.


Cabello (born in Cojimar, Eastern Havana, Cuba) also charts the fourth Hot 100 top 10 this year whose title doubles as the name of a city. It follows prior trips to the top 10 for “Paris” by The Chainsmokers (No. 6 peak in March); “Portland” by Drake (No. 9, April); and “Malibu” by Miley Cyrus (No. 10, June).

J Balvin and Willy William‘s “Mi Gente,” featuring Beyonce, descends 6-8 on the Hot 100 after hitting No. 3, while spending a fourth week at No. 1 on Hot Latin Songs, and Sam Smith’s “Too Good at Goodbyes” slips 8-9 on the Hot 100 after reaching No. 5 (upon its Sept. 30 debut).

Capping the Hot 100’s top 10, Ed Sheeran soars 18-10 with “Perfect.” The ballad gains in all metrics, holding at No. 3 on Digital Song Sales (53,000, up 7 percent) and climbing 30-22 on Radio Songs (53 million, up 16 percent) and 35-27 on Streaming Songs (13.1 million, up 14 percent).

Sheeran scores his sixth Hot 100 top 10, with half logged this year from his alum ÷, following “Shape of You” (12 weeks at No. 1) and “Castle on the Hill” (No. 6). His three previous top 10s (all from his last album, X): “Don’t” (No. 9, 2014); “Thinking Out Loud” (No. 2, 2015); and “Photograph” (No. 10, 2015).

Notably, Sheeran earns his ninth Hot 100 top 10 as a writer, as, in addition to his own six, he co-penned Justin Bieber‘s “Love Yourself” (No. 1 for two weeks in 2016); Major Lazer’s “Cold Water,” featuring Bieber and MO (No. 2, 2016); and Liam Payne’s “Strip That Down,” featuring Quavo (No. 10, September). Meanwhile, Sheeran’s older brother, Matthew, co-wrote “Perfect” and achieves a top 10 in his first Hot 100 appearance as a writer.
