Post Malone's 'Psycho' Hits No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100, Maroon 5's 'Girls Like You' Leaps to Top Five
By Gary Trust | June 11, 2018

Post Malone's "Psycho" featuring Ty Dolla $ign climbs from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, marking Post Malone's second leader on the list and Ty Dolla $ign's first.

Meanwhile, Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin jump 7-3 on the Hot 100 with "I Like It." As for more Cardi B in the top five, Maroon 5 blasts from No. 94 to No. 4 with "Girls Like You" featuring Cardi B; following the premiere of the song's official video, it's the newly-minted top-selling track of the week.

Kanye West blasts onto the Hot 100 at No. 8 with "Yikes," from his new No. 1-debuting album on the Billboard 200,Ye, while all seven tracks from the set enter in the Hot 100's top 40.

Plus, rapper Juice WRLD notches his first top Hot 100 top 10, as "Lucid Dreams" lifts 15-9.

Post Malone's Second Hot 100 No. 1, Ty Dolla $ign's First: "Psycho," released on Republic Records, is the 1,074th No. 1 in the Hot 100's history, which dates to its Aug. 4, 1958, inception. The song is from Post Malone's second album, beerbongs & bentleys, which holds at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 after spending its first three weeks at No. 1, beginning May 12.

Post Malone earns his second Hot 100 leader, after "Rockstar," featuring 21 Savage, which ruled for eight weeks beginning Oct. 28, 2017. Ty Dolla $ign scores his first No. 1; he previously hit a No. 4 peak (in his only prior top 10 visit) as featured on Fifth Harmony's "Work From Home" in 2016.

15 Weeks to No. 1: "Psycho" reaches the Hot 100's top spot in its 15th week on the chart (all spent in the top five, after it debuted at No. 2 on March 10), ending a record-tying streak of three straight No. 1s that debuted at the summit: Drake's "God's Plan" (11 weeks at No. 1) and "Nice for What" (six total weeks) and Childish Gambino's "This Is America" (two).

"Psycho" is the first Hot 100 No. 1 that didn't debut on top since Camila Cabello's "Havana" (featuring Young Thug), which ascended to the apex in its 23rd week (Jan. 27). ("Rockstar" reigned in its third week, after spending its first three frames at No. 2.)

The last rap song before "Psycho" to take a longer trip to the top? Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop," featuring Wanz, which hit No. 1 in its 16th week on Feb. 2, 2013. And, until this week, the last rap hit by a lead soloist that needed at least 15 weeks to reign was Wiz Khalifa's debut hit "Black and Yellow" (18 weeks; Feb. 19, 2011).

No. 2 in Airplay & Sales, No. 10 in Streaming: Notably, "Psycho" tops the Hot 100 despite not leading any of the tally's three main component charts: Radio Songs, Digital Song Sales or Streaming Songs. It rises 4-2 on Radio Songs (98.2 million in audience, up 4 percent, in the week ending June 10, according to Nielsen Music) and drops to No. 2 after two nonconsecutive weeks atop Digital Song Sales, although up 18 percent to 37,000 sold in the week ending June 7, helped by a continued 69-cent sale price in the iTunes Store.

On Streaming Songs, "Psycho" falls from No. 4 to No. 10 (after reaching No. 2), down 5 percent to 30.3 million U.S. streams in the week ending June 7. That's the lowest that a Hot 100 No. 1 has ranked on Streaming Songs in over four years, since Pharrell Williams' "Happy" also led the Hot 100 while placing at No. 10 on the Streaming Songs chart dated April 12, 2014. Still, a point to consider: the gap between the No. 1-streamed song ("All Mine" by Kanye West; keep reading for details) and the No. 10 title in the latest tracking week is a relatively small 6 million U.S. streams.

Rap Rules for 20th Straight Week: Rap songs have now led the Hot 100 for a record-extending 20 consecutive weeks, thanks to Drake's "Plan" and "Nice," Childish Gambino's "America" and now "Psycho." The genre previously linked as many as 16 straight weeks on top in 2003 courtesy of 50 Cent's "In Da Club" (nine), Sean Paul's "Get Busy" (three) and 50 Cent's "21 Questions," featuring Nate Dogg (four).

No. 1 in R&B/Hip-Hop, Rap & Pop: "Psycho" concurrently takes over atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, as Post Malone notches his second No. 1 on each list; "Rockstar" ruled for 14 and 15 weeks, respectively. Ty Dolla $ign earns his first Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs No. 1 and second on Hot Rap Songs, following "Sucker for Pain" (by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and Imagine Dragons with Logic and Ty Dolla $ign featuring X Ambassadors) in 2016.

"Psycho" also hits No. 1 on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart, where it's Post Malone's first leader, and Ty Dolla $ign's second (after "Work for Home").

No. 1 for the Summer, So Far: And, two weeks into the Songs of the Summer chart battle, "Psycho" dethrones "Nice" for the early lead on the ranking, which measures the top cumulative performing titles on the Hot 100 between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Beyond "Psycho," Drake's "Nice for What" drops to No. 2 on the Hot 100 and Cardi B, Bad Bunny and J Balvin's "I Like It" lifts 7-3. Following the first full week of tracking after its official video premiered May 29, "Like" gains by 9 percent to 33.8 million U.S. streams, as it holds at No. 5 on Streaming Songs.

Cardi B makes her fourth visit to the Hot 100's top five, Bad Bunny earns his first and J Balvin tallies his second and matches his best rank; "Mi Gente," with Willy William and featuring Beyoncé, hit No. 3 in October 2017.

Maroon 5's "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, rockets 94-4 on the Hot 100. The song was originally available on Maroon 5's 2017 album Red Pill Blues by the band solo and released May 30 as a single featuring Cardi B, along with its star-studded video. Following its first full week of tracking after the clip's arrival, "Girls" soars 12-1 on Digital Song Sales (82,000, up 331 percent), becoming Maroon 5's fourth leader (and first since "Payphone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, in 2012) and Cardi B's first. On Streaming Songs, "Girls" debuts at No. 12 (24.5 million, up 527 percent).

With "I Like It" and "Girls," Cardi B boasts two concurrent Hot 100 top five hits for the second time. On Jan. 20, she ranked at No. 3 with "Finesse," with Bruno Mars, and No. 5 as featured, with A$AP Rocky, on G-Eazy's "No Limit." Only one other artist has doubled up in the top five in 2018: Drake, who this week earns his 11th week this year with at least two titles in the top five simultaneously, as, rounding out the region, "God's Plan" slides 3-5.

"Girls" makes the fourth-biggest jump (90 positions) in the Hot 100's history. It trails only vaults by Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" (96 spots; 97-1, Feb. 7, 2009); Britney Spears' "Womanizer" (95 spots; 96-1, Oct. 25, 2008); and Beyoncé and Shakira's "Beautiful Liar" (91 spots; 94-3, April 7, 2007). "Girls," thus, claims the greatest jump by a group, surpassing matchbox twenty's "How Far We've Come" (81 spots; 93-12, Sept. 22, 2007).

Ella Mai's first Hot 100 top 10, "Boo'd Up," hits a new high, rising 8-6, as it leads Hot R&B Songs for a fourth week, and Childish Gambino's "This Is America" drops 4-7.

Kanye West propels seven songs onto the Hot 100, all from his new album, Ye, which launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. "Yikes" starts highest on the Hot 100, at No. 8, followed at No. 11 by "All Mine," which opens atop Streaming Songs with 36.3 million U.S. streams; "Yikes" enters Streaming Songs at No. 3 (34.2 million), but logged bigger opening-week sales than "Mine" (13,000 vs. 6,000), thus, helping enable its higher Hot 100 entrance.

West's other Hot 100 debuts this week: "Ghost Town" (No. 16), "Wouldn't Leave" (No. 25), "Violent Crimes" (No. 27), "I Thought About Killing You" (No. 28) and "No Mistakes" (No. 36).

With "Yikes," West adds his 16th Hot 100 top 10 and first since "FourFiveSeconds," with Rihanna and Paul McCartney, which hit No. 4 in February 2015. Among rappers, West ties Nicki Minaj for the sixth-most top 10s, after Drake (26), JAY-Z (21), Lil Wayne (20), Ludacris (18) and Eminem (17).

West notches his first top 10 debut on the Hot 100 since October 2009, when Drake's "Forever," featuring West, Lil Wayne and Eminem, also opened at No. 8. He inks his first top 10 debut as a lead artist since "Heartless" soared in at No. 4 in November 2008.

West also ups his count to 91 career Hot 100 appearances, tying James Brown for the sixth-best sum among all acts, following the Glee Cast (207), Drake (164), Lil Wayne (137), Elvis Presley (108) and JAY-Z (97).

Meanwhile, West earns his first Streaming Songs No. 1 with "All Mine." He previously reached a No. 2 high with "Bound 2" in 2013.

Juice WRLD earns his first Hot 100 top 10, as "Lucid Dreams" darts 15-9, led by its 7-2 surge on Streaming Songs (35.9 million, up 24 percent). The rapper's debut studio album, Goodbye & Good Riddance, pushes 8-6 on the Billboard 200.

Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey's "The Middle" falls to No. 10 from its No. 5 peak, as it leads Radio Songs for a fifth week (114.2 million, down 1 percent) and Hot Dance/Electronic Songs for a 19th frame.

think it's because it only just peaked last week. that or the label have asked for special measures as they don't believe the song has properly peaked yet.

bizarre IDGAF was not kicked out, thats the old 1991 rule to filter out tracks that have been on the charts for at least 20 weeks and fell below position 50. They had indeed applied it to Kendrick/SZA and the song was 40-ish last week (week 20) and is now out (week 21)

yay maybe there's some exception if the song is climbing on some chart like airplay or sales or something

I hope I Like It or Girls Like You can compete for #1 eventually, although with Drake’s album coming I imagine he’ll return to the top (unless something new shows up, or Better Now gets pushed)

'Psycho' might as well be Post Malone farting into a microphone. Jesus wept.

According to Reddit 'Psycho' has got to #1 on very weak numbers, seems a bit out of nowhere that it's suddenly got there now but it seems to just be a case of its radio play still going up while Drake is now in decline. Glad to see it eventually getting that #1 peak anyway. Would love to see Cardi B and/or Juice WRLD reaching #1 in the next few weeks (although I guess the next #1 is probably going to be that Maroon 5 snoozefest once radio starts spamming it endlessly, if they haven't started already). Either that or some Drake album track ofc but 'I'm Upset' has completely bombed so that's no guarantee.

Is it possible 'IDGAF' is still there because it increased its numbers despite falling on the chart? What with the 7 Kanye new entries ahead of it. I seem to remember something like this happening a few years back with AWOLNATION's 'Sail' and I think that was why.

'Huge airplay numbers' that are not even enough for it to be #1 on the airplay chart... tongue.gif

High airplay is pretty much a necessity for any #1 hit in the USA. 'Psycho' has done extremely well on sales and streaming as well (in fact it was #1 on the sales chart just last week). I don't see how you can say it's not a deserving #1 when it's been in the top 10 (top 5?) for nearly 4 months and only missed out on being #1 already because it clashed with Drake's gargantuan streaming tallies.

boh it's #2 on airplay
I meant it doesn't deserve it cos it's just a very mediocre song, of course in my opinion, but Better now is a million times better and even Congratulations or Rockstar, I could see the appeal, but this is plain bad and lazy, and pushed to #1 on name alone

Yes, Psycho, as well as the past 2 weeks of Nice For What, and most likely Psycho next week as well, are all amongst the weakest #1s of the whole decade. Another weak period was when Cheap Thrills was at #1, but apparently these #1s are even weaker.

Even though Psycho and Nice For What have been #1 the past few weeks, there are other weeks where their current performance would have only put them at only #7 instead of #1. Maybe other weeks where they'd be even lower.

Nice For What and Psycho both got great "points" at their peaks, so it's not like they've not been successful, but now they're just hanging around at the top because nothing else is doing any better.

Next week would honestly be a good time for someone who's desperate to get a #1 to release a single. Because at the moment you can get there with half the sales + airplay + streaming that you would need in some other weeks. After the next big hit comes along, we don't know how long it will be until it's this easy to get to #1 again.

What's peculiar about "IDGAF" is that it doesn't even have the 'gains in performance' stamp next to it on the Hot 100, which is usually used to say 'it's climbing on airplay' and doesn't always even mean it's actually gained overall points (I've even seen a 'bulleted' song overtaken by a song that isn't bulleted on occasion). Obviously it is still climbing on Pop because Pop radio is turning into a glacial quagmire (Lauv is still climbing well into his 38th week on the chart), but I don't know why it's missing the stamp. This wasn't covered in Dua's set of rules. basil.gif

boh it's #2 on airplay
I meant it doesn't deserve it cos it's just a very mediocre song, of course in my opinion, but Better now is a million times better and even Congratulations or Rockstar, I could see the appeal, but this is plain bad and lazy, and pushed to #1 on name alone


Which means it did well enough on the other formats to beat whatever the airplay #1 is, so saying it's #1 because of 'huge airplay numbers' doesn't really make sense.

Fair enough at the second part. I do agree 'Psycho' is a relatively weak single from him (it took quite a while to grow on me and I still much prefer all of his other hits).

I certainly wasn't expecting Psycho to get to #1, what a brilliant surprise! Even with the discount I'm amazed at how high it's been on iTunes. Pleased to see a lot of movement in the top 10, Maroon 5 aside maybe tongue.gif

I *think* Billboard allows themselves some discretion to keep a song from going recurrent if it's likely enough to keep climbing. If so it doesn't happen often and probably not very consistently, but fair enough in this case since 'IDGAF' would still be top 50 if it wasn't for Kanye's album.
