Here’s a rundown of the top 10 of the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Feb. 29) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Feb. 25).

“The Box,” released on Bird Vision/Atlantic Records, posts an eighth week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, despite a 12% drop to 52.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending Feb. 25, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It pushes 8-7 on Digital Song Sales, down 3% to 11,000 sold in the week ending Feb. 20, and 13-10 on Radio Songs, gaining by 12% to 59.3 million all-format airplay audience impressions in the week ending Feb. 23, as it leads the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop and Rhythmic Songs format airplay charts for a second week each.


“The Box” concurrently tops the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which employ the same multi-metric formula as the Hot 100, for an eighth week apiece.

As for Atlantic Records, “The Box” is the label’s seventh No. 1 ever to rule the Hot 100 for at least seven weeks, and it follows Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts,” which dominated for seven frames beginning in September:

Future’s “Life Is Good,” featuring Drake, spends its sixth consecutive week at No. 2 on the Hot 100, encompassing its entire, and unprecedented, run on the chart; a week ago, it became the first song ever to log its first five weeks on the Hot 100 at No. 2. It also keeps at No. 2 on Streaming Songs (42 million, up 6%), while surging 21-5 on Digital Song Sales (11,000, up 56%) and rising 26-25 on Radio Songs (39.5 million, up 12%). Helping spark the track’s gains, a remix, featuring Drake, DaBaby and Lil Baby, was released on Feb. 15.

Post Malone’s “Circles” is steady at No. 3 on the Hot 100, after three nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1, as it notches a ninth week at No. 1 on Radio Songs (104.5 million, essentially even week-over-week), and Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey” climbs from No. 5 to a new No. 4 Hot 100 high.

Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” rises 6-5 on the Hot 100, marking her first top five hit. Her sole prior top 10, “New Rules,” reached No. 6 in February 2018. “Start” also becomes Lipa’s second No. 1 on the Pop Songs airplay ranking, after “Rules” reigned for four weeks, also in February 2018.

Arizona Zervas’ “Roxanne” bumps 7-6 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 4; Maroon 5’s “Memories” drops 4-7, after hitting No. 2; and Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved” keeps at No. 8, after it spent three weeks at No. 1.

Bieber’s “Intentions,” featuring Quavo, rises 11-9 on the Hot 100, as parent album Changes launches as Bieber’s seventh No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The track holds at No. 3 on Streaming Songs, up 10% to 24.3 million streams.


Bieber adds his 18th Hot 100 top 10, and second from Changes, after “Yummy” bowed and peaked at No. 2 in January. Quavo collects his sixth top 10, and third via a Bieber collab, after DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One,” featuring Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne (No. 1, one week, May 2017), and “No Brainer,” by the same lineup minus Lil Wayne (No. 5, August 2018). Quavo further outpaces the top 10 total of Migos (the trio of himself, Offset and Takeoff), which has tallied four top 10s.

“Intentions” posts a second week at No. 1 on the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” lifts 12-10. It also ranks at No. 10 on Streaming Songs (19.4 million, up 11%). The Weeknd achieves his 10th Hot 100 top 10 and second from his album After Hours, due March 20, after “Heartless” topped the chart dated Dec. 14, becoming his fourth No. 1.
