Billboard Hot 100: Adele’s “Easy On Me” Earns 5th Week As #1 Song In America, “Oh My God” Makes Top 5; Glass Animals’ “Heat Waves” Rises

Adele is back atop the Billboard Hot 100.

As Adele’s new “30” debuts atop the Billboard 200 albums chart, lead single “Easy On Me” returns to #1 on the Hot 100 songs chart.

Up one place from last week, the global hit secures a fifth overall week as the #1 song in America. The song concurrently claims #1 in the three metric categories — streaming, sales, and radio — that define placement on the Billboard Hot 100.

The Grammy-winning artist also has another song in this week’s Top 5, as “Oh My God” debuts at #5 on the chart. “Oh My God” is launching as the next radio single from “30.”

The two Adele songs bookend a Top 5 that includes The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber’s “STAY” at #2 (+1), Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” at #3 (-2), and Lil Nas X & Jack Harlow’s “INDUSTRY BABY” at #4 (=).

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Glass Animals’ enduring “Heat Waves” rises one spot to a new high of #7.
