Powered by another week of mammoth streams and sales and big growth at radio, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road (featuring Billy Ray Cyrus)” retains its #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Old Town Road” again maintains considerable distance over the #2 song. The dominant sales and streams explain that cushion; the song’s weekly streaming total is actually the second-best ever recorded (trailing only the number “Old Town Road” put up last week).

Post Malone singles claim the chart’s next two slots as his own “Wow.” and Swae Lee collaboration “Sunflower” follow at #2 and #3, respectively. Ariana Grande’s “7 rings” takes #4, while Halsey’s “Without Me” earns #5.
