Drake's 'God's Plan' Joins Smashes by Taylor Swift, Adele & More as One of Most Dominant Hot 100 No. 1s of Last 25 Years
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... t-100-hits
2/28/2018 by Trevor Anderson

The song is the latest rare chart monster to boast twice the weekly Hot 100 points of the runner-up title.
As Drake's "God's Plan" spends a fifth week atop the Billboard Hot 100 (dated March 3), the colossal hit joins rarefied air, becoming a smash so big that it flaunts more than twice as many Hot 100 chart points as its nearest competitor -- the current No. 2, "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran. In essence, "Plan" is twice as popular as the No. 2 song of the week.

Yup, we're getting deep into the numbers in this one.

First, though, there's some fine print to explain: The Hot 100 ranks the most popular songs of the week in the U.S. based on a blend of streaming, airplay and sales data. The chart, which launched on Aug. 4, 1958, began using Nielsen Music's electronically-measured point-of-sale and radio airplay information on the list dated Nov. 30, 1991, which is when our research for this post begins. Since that date, only 20 songs have run away with enough sales, airplay and, since 2012, streaming activity to rule with at least a two-to-one points lead. With 311 No. 1s in that span (beginning with P.M. Dawn's "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss"), a mere 6 percent of all leaders have ballooned to such heights.

Unsurprisingly, the list contains enduring megahits such as Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You," which recorded the first two-to-one points lead. The ballad blasted the competition with a lead of that ratio (or more) for nine of its 14 weeks at No. 1, the most for song in the past 25-plus years.

Elton John's "Candle in the Wind 1997"/"Something About the Way You Look Tonight," meanwhile, claims the biggest ratio lead over a No. 2 song: It debuted at No. 1 on Oct. 11, 1997, with a massive points lead of 17 times the amount of the No. 2 challenger (Boyz II Men's "4 Seasons of Loneliness").

How did John score the most lopsided lead? "Candle," his tribute to the then-recently deceased Diana, Princess of Wales, sold a Nielsen-record 3.4 million physical singles in its first week of tracking. (And remember! This occurred in 1997, before the dawn of consumer-friendly options such as YouTube and digital downloads. At the time, the only way to access a Hot 100 hit on-demand was to go to a physical retail venue and buy a commercially-released single on CD, cassette tape or even 7-inch vinyl.)

With "God's Plan" achieving such double-dominance on the Hot 100, Drake secures his place as the latest all-star to have outscored his competition by at least a two-to-one points margin. Here's the full roster:

"I Will Always Love You," Whitney Houston

Drake Returns to No. 1 on Artist 100 for First Time in Nearly a Year
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... -gods-plan
2/28/2018 by Xander Zellner

He logs his 26th total week on top, second only to Taylor Swift's 36.
Drake returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (dated March 3) for a 26th total week at the summit, and for the first time since April 15, 2017. His smash single "God's Plan" spends a fifth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and BlocBoy JB's "Look Alive," on which he's featured, hits the Hot 100's top five, rising from No. 6 to No. 5.

The Artist 100, which launched in July 2014, measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.

"Plan" continues its reign on the Hot 100 thanks to a major boost from its official video release Feb. 16. The song surges by 35 percent to a massive 101.7 million U.S. streams in the week ending Feb. 22, according to Nielsen Music, becoming just the second song ever to top the 100-million-streams weekly milestone, joining Baauer's viral hit "Harlem Shake" (103.1 million; March 2, 2013).

"Plan" also sold 81,000 downloads (up 45 percent), as it spends a fourth week atop the Digital Song Sales chart, and drew 76 million in all-format radio airplay (up 21 percent), as it zooms to the top 10 (13-8) on Radio Songs.

Drake rises 3-1 on the Artist 100 to rule the tally for a 26th total week. Only Taylor Swift has spent more time at No. 1, with 36 weeks.

Streaming accounts for the majority of Drake's Artist 100 points (51 percent), followed by digital song sales (31 percent).

Post Malone's 'Psycho,' Featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Headed for Top Five Debut on Billboard Hot 100 Next Week
https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... 0-top-five
3/2/2018 by Gary Trust

The song could start at No. 2 below Drake's "God's Plan."

Post Malone's "Psycho," featuring Ty Dolla $ign, is aiming to roar onto next week's Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated March 10) in the top five.

The song, released on Republic Records, could likely start as high as No. 2, perhaps matching his best bow; "Rockstar," featuring 21 Savage, debuted at No. 2 last October, before spending eight weeks at No. 1.

Incumbent No. 1 Drake's "God's Plan" appears set to maintain its spot on top for a sixth total week at No. 1.

Let's run some projections. Highlights of next week's Hot 100, which blends streaming, airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music, will post on Billboard.com Monday (March 5), with all charts posting the following day (March 6).

Based on preliminary data projecting the tracking period feeding next week's Hot 100, "Psycho" could draw over 45 million U.S. streams in the week ending March 1, likely sparking a No. 2 debut on the Streaming Songs chart. It should arrive atop the Digital Song Sales chart, selling over 70,000 downloads. The song is also likely to draw over 10 million in radio audience in the tracking week ending March 4.

"God's Plan" appears safe to stay at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with over 75 million U.S. streams, 50,000 downloads sold and 80 million in airplay reach.
