Travis Scott Still in Top 10 ‘Mode,’ P!nk Debuts & More Hot 100 Chart Moves

As previously reported, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper's "Shallow" vaults from No. 21 to No. 1 for its first week atop the Billboard Hot 100 (dated March 9). The song reigns after the 91st Academy Awards on Feb. 24, when the ballad, from A Star Is Born, won for best original song and Gaga and Cooper performed it.

Who else makes notable Hot 100 chart moves this week?

"Sicko Mode," Travis Scott
The track becomes just the seventh in the Hot 100's 60-year history to have spent at least 30 weeks in the top 10, and is the first hip-hop hit to achieve the feat. Of those seven, the song, which debuted at No. 4 on Aug. 18, 2018-dated chart and topped the tally dated Dec. 8, is just the third to have logged all of its first 30 weeks on the chart in the top 10, after the second and third titles on the list below:

Most weeks in Hot 100's top 10
33, "Girls Like You," Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B, 2018-19
33, "Shape of You," Ed Sheeran, 2017
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, "Sicko Mode," Travis Scott, 2018-19
30, "Smooth," Santana feat, Rob Thomas, 1999-2000

In its 30th frame on the Hot 100 and in the top 10, "Sicko Mode" slips from No. 7 to No. 10.

"Sweet But Psycho," Ava Max
The song lifts to a new Hot 100 peak (29-24) and becomes Max's first top 10 on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart, rising 11-10 with a 16 percent gain in weekly plays, according to Nielsen Music.

"Walk Me Home," P!nk
The track debuts at No. 54 on the Hot 100 and launches at No. 2 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 30,000 downloads sold. P!nk earns highest rank on the sales list as a lead artist since 2013, when "Just Give Me a Reason" ruled for four weeks; "Reason" features Nate Ruess, who co-wrote "Walk."

On the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart, "Walk" charges 19-14, a notch below P!nk's "A Million Dreams." The latter song, from The Greatest Showman: Reimagined, reached No. 11 on the list largely on the strength of adventurous programmers (as opposed to standard label promotion), including program director Steve Salhany and assistant PD/music director Mike Mullaney of WWBX (Mix 104.1) Boston, which leads all chart reporters with over 900 plays for "Dreams" to date.
