Mars unlocks his eighth Hot 100 No. 1 and Anderson. Paak earns his first.

Plus, Olivia Rodrigo’s “Deja Vu” enters the Hot 100 at No. 8 and Masked Wolf notches his first top 10 as his breakthrough hit “Astronaut in the Ocean” ascends 12-10.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated April 17) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (April 13). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

“Door,” released on Aftermath/Atlantic Records, is the 1,121st No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 62-year history.

Streams, sales & airplay: “Door” drew 21.5 million U.S. streams (up 13%) and sold 28,600 copies, downloads and CDs combined (up 138%), in the week ending April 8, according to MRC Data. It also attracted 59.1 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 9%) in the week ending April 11.

The track pushes 5-2 for a new high on Radio Songs and climbs 4-2 on Digital Song Sales and 7-3 on Streaming Songs, returning to its best rank on each of the latter two charts. Combining digital and physical sales, the song was the most-sold of the tracking week, aided by two CD versions that shipped to purchasers in that span (one for $2.50 and a live version for the standard $1.29 single price), as it wins the Hot 100’s top Sales Gainer award.

Mars’ eighth Hot 100 No. 1: As the Silk Sonic billing counts for both Bruno Mars and Anderson. Paak’s individual chart histories, “Door” marks the former’s eighth Hot 100 No. 1 and the latter’s first.

Bruno Mars’ Hot 100 No. 1s:
“Nothin’ on You” (B.o.B feat. Mars), two weeks, beginning May 1, 2010
“Just the Way You Are,” four weeks, Oct. 2, 2010
“Grenade,” four weeks, Jan. 8, 2011
“Locked Out of Heaven,” six weeks, Dec. 22, 2012
“When I Was Your Man,” one week, April 20, 2013
“Uptown Funk!” (Mark Ronson feat. Mars), 14 weeks, Jan. 17, 2015
“That’s What I Like,” one week, May 13, 2017
“Leave the Door Open” (Silk Sonic [Mars & Anderson. Paak]), one week to-date, April 17, 2021

With eight Hot 100 No. 1s dating to his first, as featured on B.o.B’s “Nothin’ on You” on the chart dated May 1, 2010, Mars ties Drake, Katy Perry and Rihanna for the most in that span. Mars becomes one of 18 artists in the Hot 100’s entire history with at least eight leaders.

Meanwhile, “Door” reaches No. 1 in its fifth week on the Hot 100, completing Mars’ quickest coronation. He wrapped a prior-best eight-week ascent to the summit with “Uptown Funk!” in 2015.

Anderson .Paak reigns in his second Hot 100 visit, after he reached No. 89 in February 2020 as featured on Eminem’s “Lock It Up.”

(Mars is the second artist in less than a year to top the Hot 100 via a collaborative billing that expands beyond his name; Travis Scott did so with “The Scotts,” credited to The Scotts, Travis Scott and Kid Cudi, when it debuted atop the May 9, 2020, chart.)


An Atlantic Records record: “Door” is Mars’ seventh Hot 100 No. 1 credited to Atlantic Records (encompassing all his leaders except for Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!,” featuring Mars, released on RCA). His latest leader is historic in the label’s archives, as he ties Phil Collins for the most Atlantic No. 1s. Collins logged his seven leaders in 1984-90 (and made another trip to the top, also on Atlantic, with “Invisible Touch” by trio Genesis, of which he was a member, in 1986).

‘Door’ No. 1: Meanwhile, an act walks a song with “door” in its title to No. 1 for the first time in the Hot 100’s history. The song one-ups the No. 2-peaking “Lookin’ Out My Back Door” by Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1970. Three other songs with “door” in their titles have hit the Hot 100’s top 10: Neil Sedaka’s “Next Door to an Angel” (No. 5, 1962); Dean Martin’s “The Door Is Still Open to My Heart” (No. 6, 1964); and Pete Townshend’s “Let My Love Open the Door” (No. 9, 1980).

As for artists, The Doors notched two Hot 100 No. 1s: “Light My Fire” (three weeks, 1967) and “Hello, I Love You” (two weeks, 1968).

Plus, Silk Sonic is the second “Silk”-named act to top the Hot 100. Two weeks shy of 28 years earlier, R&B vocal group Silk began a two-week reign with “Freak Me” on the May 1, 1993, chart.

No. 1 R&B and hip-hop: Silk Sonic pushes “Door” from No. 2 to No. 1 for its first week atop the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where it’s Mars’ fourth leader, after “That’s What I Like” (10 weeks, 2017), “Finesse” (one week, 2018) and “Please Me” (one week, 2019), the latter two with Cardi B. Anderson. Paak scores his first No. 1 on the chart.

“Door” concurrently rebounds 2-1 for a third week atop the Hot R&B Songs chart, which, like Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, uses the same methodology as the Hot 100.


Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” drops to No. 2 after it launched atop the Hot 100 a week earlier. It adds a second week atop Streaming Songs (38.1 million, down 19%) and slips 2-3 on Digital Song Sales (14,500, down 31%), while gaining by 189% to 3.2 million in airplay audience.

Justin Bieber’s “Peaches,” featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon, descends 2-3, two weeks after debuting atop the Hot 100, while claiming the chart’s top Airplay Gainer nod (31.6 million, up 37%), and Cardi B’s “Up” holds at No. 4, three weeks after reaching No. 1. “Up” adds a seventh week atop the multi-metric Hot Rap Songs chart.

Olivia Rodrigo’s former eight-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Drivers License” keeps at No. 5, as it spends a fifth week at No. 1 on Radio Songs (62.8 million, down 6%); The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” is steady at No. 6 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 4; and Dua Lipa’s “Levitating,” featuring DaBaby, repeats at No. 7, after hitting No. 5.

Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” follow-up “Deja Vu” debuts at No. 8 on the Hot 100, marking her second top 10. Released April 1, it enters at No. 4 on Streaming Songs with 20.3 million streams and No. 7 on Digital Song Sales with 7,400 sold in the April 2-8 tracking week; it also drew 9.3 million in radio reach in the week ending April 11.

As “License,” which soared onto the Hot 100 at No. 1 in January and “Deja Vu” are Rodrigo’s first two singles promoted to radio, streaming services and other platforms (and mark her second and third Hot 100 entries, respectively, after “All I Want,” from High School Musical: The Musical: The Series [Music From the Disney+ Original Series], reached No. 90 in January 2020), she is the first artist to send her first two proper singles straight onto the Hot 100 in the top 10.

The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” backtracks 8-9 on the Hot 100, after spending four weeks at No. 1 in April-May 2020. It adds a record-extending 57th week in the top 10, after it became the first song to total a year in the region.

The track also tallies a 70th total week on the Hot 100, becoming the fourth single to reach the milestone, while extending its run as the longest-charting No. 1 hit.

Most Weeks on the Billboard Hot 100:
87, “Radioactive,” Imagine Dragons, No. 3 peak, 2012-14
79, “Sail,” AWOLNATION, No. 17, 2011-14

68, “Counting Stars,” OneRepublic, No. 2, 2013-14
68, “Party Rock Anthem,” LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock, No. 1 (six weeks), 2011-12

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top tier, Masked Wolf’s first entry on the chart, “Astronaut in the Ocean,” rises 12-10. It also reaches the Streaming Songs top 10 (11-8; 18 million, up 9%), while dipping 3-4 on Digital Song Sales (12,000, down 1%) and debuting at No. 50 on Radio Songs (15.5 million, up 26%).

The single from the Australian rapper, born Harry Michael, spends a sixth week in the top 10 of both the Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, where it has hit Nos. 3 and 4, respectively.
