Morgan Wallen’s ‘Last Night’ Leads Billboard Hot 100, Rema & Selena Gomez’s ‘Calm Down’ Goes Top Five

“Last Night” becomes the first song to top the Hot 100 and Country Airplay charts simultaneously.

Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night” adds a fifth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. It first led in March, becoming his initial leader on the list.

Notably, as “Last Night” ascends to No. 1 on the Country Airplay chart, it becomes the first song ever to have topped that tally and the Hot 100 simultaneously.

Elsewhere, Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma’s “Ella Baila Sola” holds at its No. 4 Hot 100 high, the best rank ever for a regional Mexican song. It concurrently hits No. 1 on Streaming Songs – becoming the first regional Mexican title to rule that chart.

Plus, Rema and Selena Gomez’s “Calm Down” rises 6-5 on the Hot 100, marking the former’s first top five hit and Gomez’s fourth.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated May 13, 2023) will update on tomorrow (May 9). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.

Wallen’s “Last Night,” released on Big Loud/Mercury/Republic Records, drew 55.9 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 17%) and 32.4 million streams (down 4%) and sold 9,000 downloads (down 7%) in the April 28-May 4 tracking week, according to Luminate.

The single slips to No. 2 after seven weeks atop the Streaming Songs chart; rebounds 4-2 on Digital Song Sales, following a week on top; and pushes 7-5 on Radio Songs, where Wallen earns his first top five hit.

As previously reported, “Last Night” crowns the Country Airplay chart, vaulting from No. 5 (as it also scales the top 15 of both Pop Airplay and Adult Pop Airplay). It makes history as the first song to top the Hot 100 and Country Airplay simultaneously, dating to the latter’s January 1990 inception. (The Hot 100 began in August 1958.) It’s just the second song to have ruled both the Hot 100 and Country Airplay overall, after Lonestar’s “Amazed” led the Hot 100 for two weeks in March 2000, propelled in part by pop and adult crossover airplay. The ballad had dominated Country Airplay for a then-record eight weeks in July-September 1999.

“Last Night” concurrently leads the Hot Country Songs chart, which uses the same methodology as the Hot 100, for a 13th week. It became just the 20th song to have topped both charts. As it has now ruled the Hot 100 for five weeks and Hot Country Songs for 13, among those 20 songs, its 18 combined weeks atop the rankings mark the most, surpassing Johnny Horton’s “The Battle of New Orleans,” which spent six and 10 weeks at No. 1, respectively, in 1959.
