We’re soaring with the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending February 10, 2018.
This is a rare week. Not only do we get a new No. 1 single, it’s also the Hot Shot Debut.
Number 5: Bruno Mars Featuring Cardi B “Finesse”
Number 5: Let’s open in fifth place, where Bruno Mars and Cardi B slip a slot with “Finesse.”
Bruno has a message for the National Football League: Pick a hip-hop artist to be the halftime entertainer at the 2019 Super Bowl. Justin Timberlake was the headliner at the February 4 game. Bruno’s opinion carries a lot of weight: He performed at the 2014 Super Bowl with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and again in 2016 with Beyonce and Coldplay.
Number 4: Post Malone Featuring 21 Savage “Rockstar”
Post Malone and 21 Savage also dip a notch in fourth place with their former champ “Rockstar.”
Post still hasn’t set a release date for his Beerbongs & Bentleys album, but when it arrives, it should be interesting. Post says he’s been listening to the blues, Nirvana, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Fleet Foxes for inspiration, and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee reportedly appears on one track.
Number 3: Camila Cabello Featuring Young Thug “Havana”
Camila Cabello and Young Thug lose their Hot 100 crown this week, as “Havana” sinks to third place.
Camila has been confirmed as a guest performer on an upcoming episode of the popular UK TV series “Dancing On Ice.” The big night happens on February 18. We’re guessing that Camila will not actually sing on the ice.
Number 2: Ed Sheeran “Perfect”
Ed Sheeran holds in the runner-up slot with “Perfect.” Ed wrote this song for his then-girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn. The pair are now engaged. Ed is friends with footballer Wayne Rooney — who says he will sing at Ed’s wedding … whether he likes it or not.
Number 1: Drake “God’s Plan”
We always like a new singles champion, and this one’s huge: Drake debuts in the top slot with “God’s Plan.” It’s a record-breaker, too.
The song broke an on-demand streaming record, with 68 million streams coming out of the gate. Drake has two debuts in this week’s Top 10, with “Diplomatic Immunity” opening in seventh place. This is the second time he’s done this …”Passionfruit” and “Portland” both debuted in the Top 10 last April. Drake is the only artist to accomplish this chart feat.
