DaBaby’s ‘Rockstar’ No. 1 on Hot 100 For Sixth Week, Juice WRLD Becomes Third Act Ever With Five Songs in Top 10 Simultaneously

2020-07-21T10:15:46+00:00July 21st, 2020|

DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, logs a sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, while the late Juice WRLD joins exclusive company historically in the top 10.

Juice WRLD lands five songs in the Hot 100’s top 10, matching Drake and The Beatles as the only acts ever to claim at least half the region in a single week. All five tracks are from his LP Legends Never Die, which launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the biggest week, in terms of equivalent album units, of 2020.

Juice WRLD died at age 21 on Dec. 8, 2019, with the cause of death announced in January.

Let’s run down the top 10 of the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated July 25) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (July 21).

‘Rockstar’ rules: “Rockstar,” released on SouthCoast/Interscope Records, dips to No. 2 on the Streaming Songs chart, after eight weeks at No. 1, with 39 million U.S. streams, down 8%, in the week ending July 16, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It drops 2-3 on Digital Song Sales, with 11,000 sold, down 16%, in the same span. On Radio Songs, it rises 5-3 with 59 million airplay audience impressions, up 9%, in the week ending July 19.

“Rockstar” concurrently rules the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which use the same multi-metric formula as the Hot 100, for a sixth week each.

Juice WRLD has half of Hot 100’s top 10: Juice WRLD sends five songs into the Hot 100’s top 10, led by “Come & Go,” with Marshmello, a debut at No. 2. Three other tracks enter the chart in the top tier: “Wishing Well,” at No. 5; “Conversations,” at No. 7; and “Hate the Other Side,” also with Marshmello and featuring Polo G and The Kid LAROI, at No. 10. Plus, “Life’s a Mess,” with Halsey, vaults from No. 74 to No. 9 in its second week on the chart.

With those five entries, Juice WRLD becomes just the third act with at least five songs in the top 10 simultaneously in the Hot 100’s 62-year history. Drake charted a record seven songs in the top 10 on July 14, 2018, while The Beatles posted five each on April 4 and 11, 1964; on the former list, the group infused the entire top five, a feat that has yet to be repeated.

Top 10 totals: Juice WRLD’s count of Hot 100 top 10s swells to eight, as he previously reached the region with “Lucid Dreams” (No. 2 peak, October 2018); “Bandit,” with YoungBoy Never Broke Again (No. 10, October 2019); and “Godzilla,” by Eminem featuring Juice WRLD (No. 3). Juice WRLD, thus, ties his best Hot 100 rank, as “Come & Go” matches the high of “Lucid Dreams.”

Marshmello adds his second Hot 100 top 10 via “Come & Go,” likewise tying his top rank, after “Happier,” with Bastille, hit No. 2 in February 2019.

“Life’s a Mess” marks Halsey’s sixth Hot 100 top 10, while “Hate the Other Side” brings Polo G and The Kid LAROI their first trip each to the bracket.

Record-tying four top 10 debuts: Juice WRLD ties the record for the most simultaneous top 10 Hot 100 debuts, thanks to “Come & Go,” “Wishing Well,” “Conversations” and “Hate the Other Side,” at Nos. 2, 5, 7 and 10, respectively. Lil Wayne sent four songs onto the chart in the top 10 on Oct. 13, 2018, after Drake first premiered a quartet of titles in the top 10 on July 14, 2018.

No. 1 in streaming: “Come & Go” opens atop Streaming Songs, becoming Juice WRLD’s third leader (after “Lucid Dreams” and “Bandit”) and Marshmello’s first, registering 36.4 million streams in the tracking week. (Note that while that sum is lower than the 39 million for “Rockstar,” the former ranks at No. 1 on Streaming Songs and the latter places at No. 2 due to the application of weighting of paid subscription, ad-supported and programmed streams.) On Digital Song Sales, “Come & Go” opens at No. 2, with 12,000 sold.

Interscope’s six-pack: All five of Juice WRLD’s new Hot 100 top 10s are on Grade A/Interscope. As they join DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” Interscope boasts six songs in the top 10. That’s the most for a label in a single week since Republic also claimed six on the chart dated Sept. 21, 2019. Republic additionally logged six top 10s on charts dated May 18, 2019; Oct. 13, 2018; and July 28, 2018, the most since the label landed seven, all by Drake, on, again, July 14, 2018.

Republic also tallied six simultaneous Hot 100 top 10s on May 12, 2018, the first such occurrence since Interscope achieved the feat on Oct. 13, 2007, with: Soulja Boy Tell’em’s “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” (No. 1); Timbaland’s “The Way I Are,” featuring Keri Hilson (No. 4); Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry” (No. 5); Timbaland’s “Apologize,” featuring OneRepublic (No. 6); Feist’s “1234” (No. 8); and Keyshia Cole’s “Let It Go,” featuring Missy Elliott and Lil Kim (No. 9).

Alt apex: “Come & Go” concurrently premieres atop the multi-metric Hot Rock & Alternative Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts, marking the first No. 1 on each ranking for both Juice WRLD and Marshmello. (The former chart was recently revamped, while the latter list began.)

Jack Harlow’s “Whats Poppin,” featuring DaBaby, Tory Lanez and Lil Wayne, holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 2 two weeks ago, and The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” backtracks 2-4, following its four-week reign.

“Blinding Lights” leads Radio Songs for a 15th week (76.4 million in audience, down 1%), becoming one of only five songs with a reign of at least that long and moving to within a week of tying for the second-longest command since the chart started in December 1990. Here’s an updated recap of the longest-leading Radio Songs No. 1s:

Weeks at No. 1, Title, Artist, Date Reached No. 1
18, “Iris,” Goo Goo Dolls, Aug. 1, 1998
16, “Girls Like You,” Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B, Aug. 4, 2018
16, “We Belong Together,” Mariah Carey, May 28, 2005
16, “Don’t Speak,” No Doubt, Dec. 7, 1996
15, “Blinding Lights,” The Weeknd, April 18, 2020
14, “High Hopes,” Panic! at the Disco, Dec. 1, 2018
14, “No One,” Alicia Keys, Nov. 3, 2007
14, “Because You Loved Me,” Celine Dion, April 13, 1996

“Blinding Lights” tops the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart for an 18th week.

Elsewhere in the Hot 100’s top 10, Megan Thee Stallion’s former one-week leader “Savage,” featuring Beyoncé, slips 4-6 and SAINt JHN’s “Roses” descends 5-8, after hitting No. 4, while leading the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a 12th week.
