Drake’s ‘God’s Plan’ Holds at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100, Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton’s ‘Say Something’ Debuts in Top 10

In its second week, Drake’s leader gains & posts the fourth-biggest streaming week ever. Plus, Timberlake tallies his 19th top 10 & Stapleton earns his first.

Drake‘s “God’s Plan” spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Feb. 10), gaining slightly to post the fourth-biggest week ever in U.S. streams.

Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake blasts in at No. 9 on the Hot 100 with “Say Something,” featuring Chris Stapleton, marking the second top 10 from Timberlake’s new album, Man of the Woods — released Friday (Feb. 2), ahead of his halftime show performance at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis last night (Feb. 4).

As we do every Monday, let’s run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends all-genre streaming, airplay and sales data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Feb. 6).

As on the Hot 100, “Plan,” released on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records, tallies its second week atop the Streaming Songs chart, with 83.3 million U.S. streams in the week ending Feb. 1, according to Nielsen Music; that’s up 1 percent from its debut-week total of 82.4 million.

This week’s sum for “Plan” replaces last week’s as the fourth-greatest for a title in a week ever on Streaming Songs. It trails only Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” (103.1 million and 97.6 million in its first and second weeks, March 2 and 9, 2013, respectively, driven largely by viral videos incorporating the song’s official audio) and Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” (84.5 million; Sept. 16, 2017).

On the audio subscription services-based On-Demand Streaming Songs chart, “Plan” keeps at No. 1, dropping 16 percent to 57.4 million on-demand U.S. audio streams; still, the total is the second-highest in the chart’s history. Last week, the song bowed with a record 68 million, shattering the prior weekly mark of 44.4 million drawn by Kendrick Lamar’s’ “Humble.” (May 6, 2017).

“Plan” dips to No. 4 after starting at No. 1 on Digital Song Sales a week ago, declining by 49 percent to 65,000 downloads sold in the week ending Feb. 1. The track enters the Radio Songs chart as the list’s highest debut, at No. 30, with 35 million in all-format airplay audience, up 47 percent, in the week ending Feb. 4. “Plan” concurrently notches a second week at No. 1 on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.

Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” holds at No. 2 on the Hot 100 after six weeks at No. 1. It leads Radio Songs for a fifth frame (150 million, down 1 percent).

After they performed the song on the Grammy Awards (Jan. 28, when parent set 24K Magic won album of the year honors), Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s “Finesse” rebounds 5-3 on the Hot 100, returning to its peak. It surges 5-2 on Streaming Songs (40.4 million, up 24 percent); 6-5 on Digital Song Sales (49,000, up 40 percent); and 8-5 on Radio Songs (93 million, up 25 percent), as it makes the Hot 100’s top sales and airplay gains. The collab crowns Hot R&B Songs for a fourth week.

Two former Hot 100 No. 1s round out the top five: Camila Cabello’s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, down 3-4 after leading the Jan. 27-dated chart, and Post Malone’s “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage, which slides 4-5 after spending eight weeks at No. 1.

Halsey’s “Bad at Love” is steady at No. 6 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 5; Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” rises 8-7 for a new peak; and Migos, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B’s “MotorSport” returns to the top 10 (11-8, after hitting No. 6), as parent album Culture II debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Following the first full week of tracking after the Jan. 25 premiere of its official video, Justin Timberlake’s “Say Something,” featuring Chris Stapleton, soars in at No. 9 on the Hot 100. It charges 13-1 on Digital Song Sales (98,000 sold, after selling 21,000 in the prior frame), marking Timberlake’s seventh No. 1 on the survey (and first since “Can’t Stop the Feeling!,” which reigned for 10 weeks in 2016). The track begins on Streaming Songs at No. 40 (12.8 million, up from 211,000).

Timberlake collects his 19th Hot 100 top 10 as a soloist and second from his new album, Man of the Woods. Lead single “Filthy” debuted at its No. 9 high on the Jan. 20-dated Hot 100. (In addition, *NSYNC, which included Timberlake, notched six top 10s of its own in 1999-2002.)

Timberlake ties Prince (as well as Frankie Valli, who scored most of his hits as a credited artist alongside his vocal group The 4 Seasons) with 19 Hot 100 top 10s, a feat even more notable give his tribute to the late legend during his his Super Bowl halftime show performance, when he sang a virtual duet with him on his ’80s classic “I Would Die 4 U.” (Eighteen acts have posted more top 10s than Timberlake, Prince and Valli, led by Madonna, with 38.)

Country singer-songwriter Stapleton scores his first Hot 100 top 10. He previously peaked as high as No. 20 on Nov. 28, 2015, with “Tennessee Whiskey,” also thanks in part to Timberlake, as the two performed that track at the Country Music Assn. Awards on Nov. 4, 2015.

“Say Something” is the new pop radio single from Man of the Woods after “Filthy,” which holds at its No. 16 peak on the Feb. 10-dated Pop Songs airplay chart (although down 7 percent in plays); “Say Something” climbs 26-20 on Adult Contemporary and 32-22 on Adult Pop Songs (while nearing Pop Songs). Meanwhile, the album’s “Supplies” jumps 33-25 on the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart.

Capping the Hot 100’s top 10, Imagine Dragons’ No. 4-peaking “Thunder” descends 9-10, as it tops Hot Rock Songs for a 14th week.

Just beyond the Hot 100’s top 10, Migos blast 52-12 with “Stir Fry” and debut at No. 18 with “Walk It Talk It,” featuring Drake (who adds his 160th Hot 100 entry, extending his record for the most among soloists). The trio boasts 14 total titles on the Hot 100, tying for the most ever by a group in a single week; The Beatles charted 14 on April 11, 1964. (Among all acts, Drake charted a record 24 entries on April 8, 2017.)

Also debuting in the Hot 100’s top 30: Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey’s “The Middle” (No. 23) and Jason Aldean’s “You Make It Easy” (No. 28).
