The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” banks a fourth week at No. 1 the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart this week.

Plus, Post Malone‘s “Circles,” at No. 6, breaks the record for the most weeks (34) ever spent in the Hot 100’s top 10 and DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, roars onto the chart at No. 9.

Let’s run down the top 10 of the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated May 2) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (April 28).

“Blinding Lights,” released on XO/Republic Records, rules the Radio Songs chart for a third week, with 110.3 million audience impressions, up 2%, in the week ending April 26, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It tops Digital Song Sales for a fourth week, despite an 11% drop to 19,000 sold in the week ending April 23, and slips at 3-4 on Streaming Songs, down 2% to 24.9 million U.S. streams in the same span.

The track concurrently rules the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart a fourth week and Hot R&B Songs for a ninth frame. (Both rankings employ the same multi-metric formula as the Hot 100.)


Drake’s “Toosie Slide” keeps at No. 2 on the Hot 100 following its debut at No. 1 two weeks ago. It leads Streaming Songs for a third week (31.5 million streams, down 15%); drops 2-5 on Digital Song Sales (12,000, down 23%); and rises 14-12 on Radio Songs (58.3 million, up 22%), winning the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer award for a second week. It leads the multi-metric Hot Rap Songs chart for a third frame.

Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100, which it commanded for 11 weeks; Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” is stationary at No. 4, after reaching No. 2; and Doja Cat’s “Say So” repeats at its No. 5 high.

Post Malone’s “Circles” rebounds 7-6 on the Hot 100, after notching three weeks at No. 1, and breaks the record for the most weeks spent in the top 10 in the chart’s 61-year history, a mark that the rapper-singer already shared:

Most Weeks in Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10
34, “Circles,” Post Malone, 2019-20
33, “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse),” Post Malone & Swae Lee, 2018-19
33, “Girls Like You,” Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B, 2018-19
33, “Shape of You,” Ed Sheeran, 2017
32, “Sicko Mode,” Travis Scott, 2018-19
32, “Closer,” The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey, 2016-17
32, “How Do I Live,” LeAnn Rimes, 1997-98
31, “Uptown Funk!,” Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars, 2014-15
30, “Bad Guy,” Billie Eilish, 2019
30, “Smooth,” Santana feat. Rob Thomas, 1999-2000

Plus, as “Circles” has logged all 34 of its weeks on the Hot 100 in the top 10, dating to its arrival at No. 7 on the Sept. 14, 2019-dated chart, it passes Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” for the most weeks tallied in the region from a song’s debut.

“Circles” additionally becomes the first title to have spent 30 weeks in the top 10 on Billboard‘s mainstream top 40-based Pop Songs radio airplay chart. The song previously led the list for 10 weeks.

Harry Styles’ “Adore You” slips to No. 7 from its No. 6 Hot 100 high.

Justin Bieber’s “Intentions,” featuring Quavo, returns to its best Hot 100 rank (9-8) and rises 12-10 on Radio Songs (68.1 million, up 11%), becoming Bieber’s 15th top 10 on the airplay tally and Quavo’s fourth.

Bieber has charted four songs in the Radio Songs top 10 in 2020, as “Intentions” follows “10,000 Hours,” with Dan + Shay (No. 3); “Yummy” (No. 10); and his Ed Sheeran collab “I Don’t Care,” which led the chart for a week in September. Bieber boasts double the amount of top 10 titles as any other artist this year; Camila Cabello, Lizzo and The Weeknd have notched two each.

DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, bounds onto the Hot 100 at No. 9, led by its No. 2 entrance on Streaming Songs, with 28.1 million first-week U.S. streams, and No. 7 bow on Digital Song Sales (10,000).

DaBaby adds his second Hot 100 top 10, after his debut hit “Suge” (No. 7, last July), as does Roddy Ricch, following “The Box.”


“Rockstar” is from DaBaby’s album Blame It on Baby, which soars in as his second No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

(“Rock” on: The rappers chart the third Hot 100 top 10 titled “Rockstar.” Post Malone’s different composition, featuring 21 Savage, led for eight weeks beginning in October 2017, after Nickelback’s hit No. 6 in September 2007. Shout-out also to Shop Boyz’s “Party Like a Rockstar,” which rose to No. 2 in June 2007.)

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, Future’s “Life Is Good,” featuring Drake, descends 8-10, after peaking at No. 2 for eight weeks.
