Update: As first reported by Headline Planet, Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” spends a second consecutive week atop the Billboard Hot 100.

It maintains its “hottest song in America” standing thanks to a combination of mammoth streams, strong sales and growing radio airplay.

What else charts well? The full Top 10 is as follows:

1) Childish Gambino – This Is America
2) Drake – Nice For What
3) Drake – God’s Plan
4) Post Malone – Psycho ft. Ty Dolla $ign
5) Bebe Rexha – Meant To Be ft. Florida Georgia Line
6) Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey – The Middle
7) Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry
8) BlocBoy JB – Look Alive ft. Drake
9) Camila Cabello – Never Be The Same
10) Ed Sheeran – Perfect

Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” debuted at #1 on last week’s Billboard Hot 100.

Powered by another week of mammoth streaming and strong sales, it will retain the #1 position on this week’s chart.

Billboard should formally announce the news soon.

In addition to the strong consumption metrics, “This Is America” is quickly taking flight at the urban, pop and rhythmic radio formats.

Not simply Gambino’s first #1 hit, “This Is America” is the artist’s first song to even reach the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Along with confirming “This Is America” as the #1 song, Billboard will soon reveal the entire Top 10. The full Hot 100 chart will be posted later this week.
