As Camila Cabello’s “Havana (featuring Young Thug)” hits #1, songs by Halsey and Dua Lipa also reach new peaks.

Halsey’s “Bad At Love” rises two spots to #5. It becomes her first Top 5 hit as a lead artist (her only previous Top 5 visit came as a featured artist on The Chainsmokers’ “Closer”).

Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” meanwhile rises three places to #8. “New Rules” is Dua Lipa’s first Top 10 hit in the United States.

Lipa receives additional good news as her “IDGAF” debuts at #92.

The Hot 100 ranks songs based on combined activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.
