Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" rules the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for a fifth week.
Meanwhile, Cardi B and Bruno Mars blast onto the Hot 100 at No. 5 with "Please Me," their second shared top 10. Their prior collab, "Finesse," reached No. 3 last year.
Let's run down the top 10 of the Hot 100 (dated March 2), which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data. All charts will update on tomorrow (Feb. 26).
Grande's "7 Rings" spends a fifth week atop the Hot 100, encompassing its entire run on the ranking. "Rings" leads the Streaming Songs chart for a fifth frame, with 44.5 million U.S. streams, down 30 percent, in the week ending Feb. 21, according to Nielsen Music.
"Rings" ranks at No. 3, after posting three weeks at No. 1, on Digital Song Sales (27,000 sold in the week ending Feb. 21) and pushes 9-6 on Radio Songs, up 16 percent to 71.3 million audience impressions in the week ending Feb. 24, as it claims the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for a fourth week.
"Rings" is the first song to spend its first five weeks on the Hot 100 at No. 1 since Drake's "God's Plan," which ranked on top for its first 11 (covering its entire reign) in February-April 2018. "Rings" is the first song by a woman to lead for its first five weeks since Adele's "Hello," which placed at No. 1 for its first 10 frames (also encompassing its entire command) in November 2015-January 2016.
As previously reported, "Rings" parent LP Thank U, Next logs a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Halsey's former two-week Hot 100 No. 1 "Without Me" rebounds 4-2. As reported earlier, Benny Blanco, Halsey and Khalid's "Eastside" (at No. 12 on the Hot 100 after reaching No. 9) completes a record 31-week ascent to No. 1 on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart, dethroning "Without Me" after four weeks on top.
Post Malone and Swae Lee's former one-week Hot 100 leader "Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)" rises 5-3, while topping the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts for an eighth week each.
Grande's "Next" drops 3-4 on the Hot 100.
Cardi B and Bruno Mars surge onto the Hot 100 at No. 5 with "Please Me." The stand-alone single (released on Atlantic Records, both artists' home label) starts at No. 1 on Digital Song Sales with 51,000 sold. Cardi B collects her third No. 1 on the sales survey, while Mars adds his ninth.
