After ceding its Billboard Hot 100 throne to Drake’s “Toosie Slide” last week, The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” returns to #1 on this week’s chart.

The song earns a third overall week as America’s top song.

The return to #1 comes as “Blinding Lights” continues to fire on all chart cylinders. It remains #1 on Radio Songs, reclaims #1 on Digital Song Sales and holds at #3 on Streaming Songs.

“Toosie Slide” falls to #2 this week, while Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” and Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” hold at #4 and #5, respectively.

Up three places, Doja Cat’s “Say So” earns #5 on this week’s chart. The multi-format breakthrough marks Doja Cat’s first trip to the chart’s Top 5.
