OMI’s “Cheerleader” Stays #1 on Hot 100; The Weeknd Hits Career High

OMI’s “Cheerleader” earns a second week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, but its reign is coming under clear fire from The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face.”

That song, which was #3 on last week’s chart, improves to #2 this week. In doing so, it becomes the artist’s highest-charting hit yet.

In conjunction with its Hot 100 victory, “Cheerleader” holds #1 on Digital songs (172,000 sales), #3 on Radio Songs (13.7 million US streams) and #5 on Radio Songs (122 million audience impressions).

“Can’t Feel My Face” grabs #2 on Digital Songs (161,000), #4 on Radio Songs (128 million) and #6 on Streaming Songs (10.7 million).

Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again (featuring Charlie Puth)” slips to #3 on this week’s Hot 100, while Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” (#4) and Silento’s “Watch Me” (#5) complete the top five.

Fetty Wap’s #6 “Trap Queen,” Walk the Moon’s #7 “Shut Up and Dance,” Rachel Platten’s #8 “Fight Song,” Major Lazer’s #9 “Lean On” and The Weeknd’s #10 “The Hills” complete the Top 10.
