We’re on the move with the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending Feb. 17, 2018.
Our musical deck gets shuffled this week, but no new songs manage to break into the charmed circle.
Number 5: Post Malone Featuring 21 Savage “Rockstar”
Former champs Post Malone and 21 Savage back off a slot to No. 5 with “Rockstar.”
21 Savage loves his shoes … and he went online to prove it. He posted a sales receipt from the high-end Barney’s department store in New York City, totaling $13,913. Among the items was a pair of Adidas black high-top sneakers costing $320.
Number 4: Camila Cabello Featuring Young Thug “Havana”
Also falling a slot this week are Camila Cabello and Young Thug, with “Havana.”
Camila has apparently found a new boyfriend. E News reports that the 20-year-old singer is dating 30-year-old Matthew Hussey. It should be smooth sailing, because Matthew is a dating coach. The two were photographed frolicking on a beach in Mexico.
Number 3: Bruno Mars & Cardi B “Finesse”
Bruno Mars and Cardi B jump two notches to third place with their remix of “Finesse.” Bruno has added a final 23 dates to the North American leg of his 24 K Magic World Tour … and Cardi B will be his special guest.
On February 12, Bruno announced the dates — it all starts September 7 in Denver, Colorado, and ends October 27 in Los Angeles.
Number 2: Ed Sheeran “Perfect”
Ed Sheeran remains your runner-up with “Perfect.”
Speaking on a podcast with fellow artist George Ezra, Ed said that due to social media, he felt pressure to lose weight early in his career. He says he compared himself unfavorably to his peers, such as Justin Bieber and One Direction. These days, Ed says he eats a more sensible diet and works out every day.
Number 1: Drake “God’s Plan”
Drake remains your Hot 100 champ for a second week with “God’s Plan.”
Earlier this month, he stopped by a supermarket in Miami, Florida, where he bought groceries for all the shoppers. It set him back about $50,000. He also gave a local student a $50,000 scholarship to attend the University of Miami, and donated $50,000 to a local shelter for homeless women and children.
With gifts like that, Drake deserves another week at the top. Join me in seven days and we’ll see how he does!
