The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Oct. 31) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Oct. 27). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.
“Mood,” released on RECORDS/Columbia Records, and the first Hot 100 No. 1 for both 24kGoldn and Iann Dior, drew 19.5 million U.S. streams (down 4%) and sold 9,000 downloads (up 18%) in the week ending Oct. 22, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It also tallied 72.1 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 15%) in the week ending Oct. 25.
The track jumps 6-3 on Radio Songs, and holds at No. 4 on the Streaming Songs chart and No. 6 on Digital Song Sales. On the Hot 100, it wins the top Airplay Gainer award for the seventh time in the past eight weeks, marking the first song to earn the honor at least that many times in such a span since Pharrell’s “Happy” did so for eight weeks in a row in February-March 2014.
Multiple radio formats are supporting “Mood,” which hits No. 1 on the Pop Songs chart, where it likewise becomes each act’s first leader. It bullets at No. 2 on Rhythmic Airplay, No. 11 on both Alternative Airplay and Rap Airplay and No. 23 on Adult Pop Songs. Reaching the top of Pop Songs in its ninth chart week, the song completes the fastest ascent to No. 1 on the list this year. It also wraps the quickest trip to the Pop Songs summit for a lead artist’s first entry on the chart since Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” which also hit No. 1 in its ninth week in 2014.
“Mood” tops the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts for a ninth week each and Hot Rap Songs for a second frame. (All three charts employ the same methodology as the Hot 100.)
Cardi B’s “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, keeps at No. 2 on the Hot 100, after four weeks at No. 1, as it leads Streaming Songs for a 10th week (23.7 million, down 9%). It concurrently rules the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a 10th frame (marking the first of Cardi B’s five leaders to reign for double-digit weeks, as well as the first of Megan Thee Stallion’s two No. 1s to reach the milestone.)
Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later,” featuring Lil Durk, is steady at No. 3 on the Hot 100, after debuting at its No. 2 peak.
The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” holds at No. 4 on the Hot 100, after spending four weeks at No. 1. It ranks in the top five for a record-extending 30th week, while logging a 36th week in the top 10, the second-most weeks ever spent in the bracket, after Post Malone’s “Circles” (39 weeks, 2019-20). “Blinding Lights” leads the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart for a record-padding 32nd week.
Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo’s “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” rebounds 6-5 on the Hot 100, two weeks after it vaulted to No. 1, aided by BTS remixes.
Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope,” featuring Charlie Puth, hits a new Hot 100 high, rising 8-6. It concurrently crowns Radio Songs for the first time (76.2 million, up 3%), as it halts the record 26-week reign of The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights.” “I Hope” led the Country Airplay chart for a week in April and, aided by its Puth remix released that month, has crossed to adult and pop radio. It leads Adult Pop Songs for a second week and ranks at No. 7 on Pop Songs and No. 8 on Adult Contemporary.
Notably, the song is just the fourth to have topped both the Country Airplay and all-format Radio Songs charts, dating to the surveys’ 1990 inceptions (and the latter list’s 1998 expansion to include country panelists, among other format reporters). Here’s a recap, with all four songs having achieved both country and pop radio success. Of the quartet, “I Hope” is the only song to have led both charts thanks to the addition of a billed artist (Puth) after its Country Airplay coronation.
Radio Songs No. 1s That Also Topped Country Airplay
“You Belong With Me,” Taylor Swift, two weeks at No. 1 on Radio Songs, beginning Oct. 3, 2009
“Need You Now,” Lady A, two weeks, beginning March 27, 2010
“Meant to Be,” Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line, five weeks, beginning April 14, 2018
“I Hope,” Gabby Barrett feat. Charlie Puth, one week to date, Oct. 31, 2020
Barrett, who placed third on ABC’s American Idol in 2018, is first artist to have topped both Country Airplay and Radio Songs with a debut single, thanks to “I Hope.” Puth adds his third Radio Songs No. 1, following his featured turn on Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” (six weeks, 2015) and his own “Attention” (five weeks, 2017).
“I Hope” dominates the multi-metric Hot Country Songs chart for a 14th week.
BTS’ “Dynamite” drops 5-7 on the Hot 100, after three weeks at No. 1, as it tallies a ninth week atop Digital Song Sales (25,000, down 43%), and DaBaby’s seven-week Hot 100 leader “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, descends 7-8.
Justin Bieber’s “Holy,” featuring Chance the Rapper, returns to the Hot 100’s top 10, bounding 14-9. It debuted at its No. 3 peak four weeks earlier. The song resurges after Bieber performed it on the Oct. 17 episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. It climbs 10-5 on Digital Song Sales (11,000, up 70%, good for top Sales Gainer honors on the Hot 100), 13-9 Streaming Songs (14.4 million, up 6%) and 18-17 on Radio Songs (36.9 million, up 5%).
Bieber also performed his newest single, “Lonely,” with benny blanco, on SNL and the track enters the Hot 100 at No. 14. It starts at No. 2 on Digital Song Sales (16,000) and No. 6 on Streaming Songs (16.3 million), while having also drawn 10.7 million in radio reach in its first full tracking week following its Oct. 16 release.
Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, Internet Money and Gunna’s “Lemonade,” featuring Don Toliver and NAV, ranks at its No. 10 best for a second week.
