Hot 100: OMI’s “Cheerleader” Rules Again, Major Lazer’s “Lean On” Hits New Peak


The mid-week music video launch resulted in sizable streaming and sales gains.

Those gains do not, however, allow The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” to dethrone OMI’s “Cheerleader” on the weekly Billboard Hot 100.

OMI’s breakthrough smash enjoys a fourth stint atop Billboard’s all-encompassing chart. It concurrently holds #2 on Digital Songs (148K), #3 on Streaming Songs (16.1M) and #3 on Radio Songs (140M impressions).

The aforementioned “Face” holds at #2. It meanwhile rises to #1 on Digital Songs (148K) and #5 on Streaming Songs (13.1M). It again appears at #2 on the Radio Songs subchart (144M impressions).

The subsequent Top 5 entiries – Silento’s “Watch Me,” Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” and Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again (featuring Charlie Puth)” – also stay put on this week’s edition of the chart.

This week’s first change comes at #6. There, Major Lazer’s “Lean On (featuring MØ and DJ Snake)” rises to a new peak of #6. It was #10 last week.

Fetty Wap’s #7 “Trap Queen,” Fetty Wap’s #8 “My Way (featuring Monty),” Rachel Platten’s #9 “Fight Song” and Walk The Moon’s #10 “Shut Up and Dance” complete the top ten.
