We’re lifting off with the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending Feb. 24, 2018.
Did our top songs change this week? No. Do any songs change this week? No. So if you liked last week’s chart, you’ll love this one as well.
Number 5: Post Malone Featuring 21 Savage “Rockstar”
Post Malone and 21 Savage hold in fifth place with their former champ “Rockstar.”
It seems to be the new trend: When two artists have hit songs, they take it on the road. Post and 21 Savage will tour together beginning on April 26 in Portland, Oregon. Twenty-eight dates later, it all ends on June 24 in San Francisco.
Number 4: Camila Cabello Featuring Young Thug “Havana”
Our fourth-place hit is “Havana” from Camila Cabello and Young Thug. Or should I say Camila Cabello and SEX. That’s right: This week, Young Thug took to Twitter to announce that he was changing his name to SEX — in capital letters. This may be a case of history repeating itself: Two years ago, he supposedly changed his name to “Jefferey,” which turned out to be the title of a mixtape.
Number 3: Bruno Mars & Cardi B. “Finesse”
Bruno Mars and Cardi B remain themselves this week, as “Finesse” stays put at No. 3.
Rumors have been swirling around a possible Cardi B pregnancy, but Offset of Migos just shut them down. Cardi B’s fiance tells TMZ that he already has three kids and that Cardi is not expecting.
Number 2: Ed Sheeran “Perfect”
We all thought Ed Sheeran was Cherry Seaborn’s fiance — but is he much more?
Last month, Ed announced his engagement to his longtime girlfriend Seaborn, but now fans think they may already be married. On February 19, Ed performed at the O2 in London, where he sparked marriage rumors by wearing a gold band on his ring finger. So far, the singer has made no comment.
Number 1: Drake “God’s Plan”
Up at No. 1, Drake rules the roost for a third week with “God’s Plan.” The video features Drake making nearly $1 million in charitable donations in the Miami area. Drake calls it the most important thing he’s done in his career — and it also earned high praise from fellow chart star Justin Bieber. On February 19, Justin took to Instagram to hail it as the best video he’s ever seen.
Can Drake last an even month at the top? We’ll find out next week. (VOA)
