Hot 100: Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” Continues Run At #1

Ed Sheeran’s smash “Shape Of You” extends its reign as America’s hottest song.

The song enjoys a third straight week — and fourth overall week — at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The position is attributable to another week of mammoth sales, stream and radio airplay. Performances on “Saturday Night Live” and Sunday’s Grammy Awards broadcast added fuel to the commercial fire, but “Shape Of You” was scorching hot even prior to that exposure.

Other developments on this week’s Hot 100 include the debut of Katy Perry’s “Chained To The Rhythm (featuring Skip Marley)” and new Top 10 appearances by Bruno Mars, Rihanna and The Weeknd.

The full top 10 follows:

10) Big Sean – Bounce Back (-4)
9) The Weeknd – I Feel It Coming ft. Daft Punk (+7)
8) Rihanna – Love On The Brain (+5)
7) Bruno Mars – That’s What I Like (+30)
6) Machine Gun Kelly x Camila Cabello – Bad Things (-2)
5) The Chainsmokers – Closer ft. Halsey (+2)
4) Katy Perry – Chained To The Rhythm ft. Skip Marley (new)
3) Migos – Bad And Boujee ft. Lil Uzi Vert (-1)
2) ZAYN & Taylor Swift – I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (+1)
