DaBaby Rules Hot 100 for Fourth Week; Jack Harlow Surges; Harry Styles, Lil Baby & 42 Dugg Hit Top 10

DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” featuring Roddy Ricch, tops the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for a fourth week.

Plus, Jack Harlow’s “Whats Poppin” vaults from No. 8 to No. 2 on the Hot 100 and two tracks reach the top 10: Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” (16-8) and Lil Baby and 42 Dugg’s “We Paid” (18-10).

Let’s run down the top 10 of the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated July 11) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (July 7).

“Rockstar,” released on SouthCoast/Interscope Records, posts a seventh week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, with 43.7 million U.S. streams, up 15%, in the week ending July 2, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It dips 2-3 on Digital Song Sales, although with a 32% gain to 16,000 sold in the same span. On Radio Songs, it pushes 12-10 with 46 million airplay audience impressions, up 16%, in the week ending July 5, becoming DaBaby’s second top 10, and first in a lead role, and Roddy Ricch’s third.

The song benefits from the release of its official video on June 26, as well as DaBaby and Roddy Ricch’s virtual performance of the track on the 2020 BET Awards on June 28.

“Rockstar” concurrently rules the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which use the same multi-metric formula as the Hot 100, for a fourth week each.

Jack Harlow’s “Whats Poppin” soars 8-2 on the Hot 100. The rapper’s first Hot 100 entry jumps 5-2 on Streaming Songs (34.1 million, up 72%) and 23-11 on Digital Song Sales (10,000, up 109%), following the June 24 arrival of its DaBaby, Tory Lanez and Lil Wayne remix, as the song wins dual top Streaming and Sales Gainer honors on the Hot 100. It also rises 29-23 on Radio Songs (29.9 million, up 15%).

Now listed as featured artists on “Whats Poppin,” as the remix accounts for the bulk of the song’s activity in the tracking week, DaBaby adds his third Hot 100 top 10, Tory Lanez scores his first and Lil Wayne logs his 25th.

Thanks to “Rockstar” and “Whats Poppin,” DaBaby is the first act to claim the Hot 100’s top two spots simultaneously since Ariana Grande, who monopolized the top three on Feb. 23, 2019, with, in order from Nos. 1 to 3, “7 Rings,” “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” and “Thank U, Next,” becoming the second act, after The Beatles in 1964, to earn such a triple. Over the Hot 100’s history, which dates to Aug. 4, 1958, DaBaby is the 20th act to concurrently rank at Nos. 1 and 2 in at least one week.

Lil Wayne, meanwhile, becomes the 12th act with at least 25 Hot 100 top 10s, following Drake and Madonna, the leaders with 38 each, The Beatles (34), Rihanna (31), Michael Jackson (30), Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder (28 each), Janet Jackson, Elton John (27 each) and Elvis Presley and Taylor Swift (also 25 apiece).

The Weeknd’s former four-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Blinding Lights” holds at No. 3. It leads Radio Songs for a 13th week (77.3 million, up 1%) and the multi-metric Hot R&B Songs chart for a 16th frame. Megan Thee Stallion’s former one-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Savage,” featuring Beyoncé, drops 2-4.

SAINt JHN’s first Hot 100 top 10 “Roses” slips to No. 5 from its No. 4 high. It also becomes his first Radio Songs top 10, rising 11-8 (46.7 million, up 11%). Doja Cat’s former one-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Say So” keeps at No. 6 and Justin Bieber’s “Intentions,” featuring Quavo, drops to No. 7 from its No. 5 best.

Harry Styles’ “Watermelon Sugar” surges 16-8 on the Hot 100. The song (which re-entered the chart at No. 64 and then rose 45-40-29-19-16 following the May 18 premiere of its official video) lifts 13-12 on Streaming Songs (15.3 million, up 7%), holds at No. 13 on Digital Song Sales (9,000, up 30%) and climbs 24-17 on Radio Songs (36.1 million, up 25%), good for the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer award.

Styles adds his third solo Hot 100 top 10, after “Adore You,” which reached No. 6 in April, and “Sign of the Times,” which debuted and peaked No. 4 in 2017. He also made six trips to the top 10, in 2012-15, as a member of One Direction, ranking as high as No. 2 with “Best Song Ever” in 2013.

With his third solo Hot 100 top 10, Styles passes former 1D bandmate Zayn for the most among members of the group. Zayn’s “Pillowtalk” topped the chart, upon its debut, for a week in 2016 and “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker),” with Taylor Swift, hit No. 2 in 2017. The act’s Liam Payne has notched one top 10, “Strip That Down,” featuring Quavo (No. 10, 2017).

A slice of history: “Watermelon Sugar” becomes the second Hot 100 top 10, and highest-charting hit, with “watermelon” in its title. Mongo Santamaria Band’s “Watermelon Man” first tasted sweet success, reaching No. 10 in April 1963.

From watermelon to blueberry (well-timed for summer), Lil Mosey’s “Blueberry Faygo” holds at its No. 9 Hot 100 high.

Rounding out the Hot 100’s top 10, Lil Baby and 42 Dugg’s “We Paid” bounds 18-10. The song ascends 4-3 on Streaming Songs (24.6 million, up 11%), while gaining by 76% to 1.7 million in radio reach and 3% to 2,000 sold.

Lil Baby lands his fourth Hot 100 top 10, and second in three weeks, after “The Bigger Picture” debuted at its No. 3 peak on the June 27 chart. He previously reached No. 4 with “Drip Too Hard,” with Gunna, in October 2018, and No. 6 with “Yes Indeed,” with Drake, in June 2018.

42 Dugg earns his first Hot 100 top 10, after one prior chart entry, also with Lil Baby: “Grace” debuted and peaked at No. 48 in March. Both “We Paid” and “Grace” are from Lil Baby’s album My Turn, which spends a fifth week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Warner Music Group Partners With Hollywood Hitmakers Imagine Entertainment

Warner Music Group Partners With Hollywood Hitmakers Imagine Entertainment

Imagine Entertainment, the Hollywood production company co-founded by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, has announced a multi-year strategic partnership with Warner Music Group that will see the two industry leaders collaborate closely on music-focused projects across film, TV, documentaries and more.

The partnership gives Imagine access to the music libraries of WMG’s family of labels, as well as publisher Warner Chappell. The first Imagine/WMG joint is Genius: Aretha, the biopic series about Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin set to premiere on the National Geographic Channel this fall.

“I’ve always looked for new ways to bring a story to life. This is my passion. Our new partnership with WMG gives us a new dimension to do exactly that – ignite emotion in stories,” remarked Grazer. “The content that lives inside songs gives life to a fresh sonic and cinematic power. Len Blavatnik is a visionary in the space and everyone at Imagine is thrilled to partner with him and his team.”

 

Founded in 1986, Imagine’s list of music-related productions over the years includes the Oscar-winning film 8 Mile and Fox’s long-running TV drama Empire, as well as documentaries Jay Z’s Made In America, Katy Perry : Part of Me and the recently released Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band.

The company is currently developing a biopic on Gucci Mane, and documentaries on Louis Armstrong, Carlos Santana, and Tekashi 6ix9nine.

Throughout the partnership, Imagine will work closely with WMG’s film and TV division, Warner Music Entertainment, which launched in 2017 and is led by former MGM exec Charlie Cohen.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Ron, Brian, and the stellar team at Imagine to bring to screens the captivating stories of our artists, our songwriters, and our labels,” said WMG CEO Steve Cooper. “With a global roster of superstar talent and a rich musical history in our archives, we have great opportunities to marry music, narrative, and image through biopics, documentaries, and other visual platforms. I can’t wait to see what emerges from the collaboration between our team at Warner Music Entertainment, led by Charlie Cohen, and the inspired creativity of Imagine.”
