Top 5 Songs for Week Ending June 23

We’re shaking hands with the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending June 23, 2018.

Two new entries and a new champion: if you’re looking for action this week, you came to the right place.

No. 5: Drake “God’s Plan”

Drake backs off two slots to No. 5 with his former champ “God’s Plan.” Sunday, June 17 was Father’s Day, and Drake celebrated by buying his Dad a Bentley. TMZ reports that Drake gifted his father, Dennis Graham, with the luxury car, worth an estimated $150,000. Drake will give the rest of us a gift June 29, when he drops his fifth album “Scorpion.”


No. 4: Maroon 5 & Cardi B “Girls Like You”

The biggest jump on our chart happens in fourth place, where Maroon 5 and Cardi B rise 90 slots with “Girls Like You.” 

Billboard says it’s the fourth-largest one-week leap in Hot 100 history. Kelly Clarkson holds the record: Back in 2009, “My Life Would Suck Without You” shot from 97th to first place. Maroon 5 holds the record for the biggest one-week jump by a group.


No. 3: Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin “I Like It”

Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin pump it up four slots to third place with “I Like It.”

Cardi is likely weeks away from giving birth, and both she and her baby bump adorn the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Also in the photo is the father, Offset of Migos. The issue will hit newsstands July 2. Cardi has canceled her summer touring dates, but is still scheduled to join Bruno Mars on tour in September.

No. 2: Drake “Nice For What”

Drake loses his Hot 100 crown in second place with “Nice For What.” While he drops his “Scorpion” album June 29, details are still sparse. We don’t have a guest list or a track list — although DJ Khaled was photographed holding a jacket bearing the “Scorpion” name.

Drake also reportedly plans to address his recent high-profile beef with Pusha-T on the album … and next month, he’ll hit the road with Migos in North America.

No. 1: Post Malone Featuring Ty Dolla $ign “Psycho”

Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign jump that all-important final slot, as “Psycho” takes the Hot 100 crown. It is Post’s second career countdown win, after “Rockstar.” This week, Kacey Musgraves went on Twitter to request a collaboration with Post … they both grew up in Texas.

That’s it for this week … join us for a new lineup in seven days.
