We’re igniting the top songs on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending March 17, 2018.

It’s a big week on the hit list because we get a Hot Shot Debut in the Top Five … that doesn’t happen very often.

Number 5: Camila Cabello Featuring Young Thug “Havana”

Things start quietly in fifth place, where Camila Cabello and Young Thug sink a slot with “Havana.”

Later this year, Camila will go on tour with Taylor Swift; Charli XCX will also be on the bill. Camila tells “ET” that she first met Taylor four years ago at the MTV Video Music Awards. She says Taylor inspired her to write songs. Camila says she’s looking forward to spending some downtime with her tour mates and says her touring necessities include a laptop, headphones and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.

Number 4: Bruno Mars & Cardi B. “Finesse” 

Also losing a slot to fourth place this week are Bruno Mars and Cardi B with “Finesse.” Over on the Radio Songs lineup, it moves into first place …putting Bruno in the chart record books. This is Bruno’s eighth champion song, making him the most successful male artist in the 33-year history of the Radio Songs chart (it was formerly known as Hot 100 Airplay). Rihanna is the all-time champ, with 13 No. 3 hits; Mariah Carey is next with 11.

Number 3: Ed Sheeran “Perfect” 

Ed Sheeran gets dinged a notch in third place with “Perfect”. On March 10, Ed performed in Melbourne, Australia, and things literally heated up. Temperatures outside the venue, Etihad Stadium, reached 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit), and some concertgoers said the air conditioning inside the stadium was too weak to keep up with the heat.

The retractable roof was closed, and witnesses say several fans were taken away after fainting. Reps for Etihad Stadium said the roof was closed at the request of Sheeran’s tour management, and that water stations were available throughout the venue.

Number 2: Post Malone Featuring Ty Dolla $ign “Psycho” 

Here’s your big new arrival: Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign grab Hot Shot Debut honors in second place with “Psycho.”

This is the second time Post has opened in the runner-up slot. He also did it with “Rockstar” — which went on to top the chart. It’s Post Malone’s third Top 10 hit, after “Rockstar” and “Congratulations.”

Number 1: Drake “God’s Plan” 

Let’s congratulate Drake on a sixth week at No. 1 with “God’s Plan.”

There may be more hits to come: Recently on Instagram, Drake posted a simple sentence: “next one soon splash.”

Whatever happens, we’ll be there to cover it, and we hope you’ll join us. (VOA)

Number 5: Post Malone & Ty Dolla $ign “Psycho”

Let’s open in fifth place, where Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign hold with “Psycho.” While we await Post’s next album “Beerbongs & Bentleys,” we do think we have some information about its length. Post’s manager recently posted an Instagram photo of a track list on a white board. It was numbered to 18 … meaning there will likely be 18 songs on the new set. Track number one was Post’s chart-topping hit “Rockstar.” No word on a release date, however.

Number 4: Bruno Mars & Cardi B “Finesse” 

Bruno Mars and Cardi B lose a slot, as “Finesse” falls to fourth place. On March 26, Cardi finally let us know about her debut album. Titled “Invasion Of Privacy,” it arrives April 6.

Initially set to drop in October, she pushed it back multiple times. The cover art is right out of the 1980s, and if you want to see it, go to our Facebook page, VOA1TheHits.

Number 3: Ed Sheeran “Perfect” 

Ed Sheeran also steps back this week, as “Perfect” falls a slot to No. 3. Two songwriters are suing Ed for copyright infringement: They say his song “The Rest Of Our Life,” which Ed wrote for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, steals elements of their 2014 song “When I Found You.” On April 2, Ed filed documents denying any resemblance between the two songs and calling their claims baseless. The judge has yet to decide, but you can compare the two songs by going to our Facebook page, VOA1TheHits.

Number 2: Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line “Meant To Be” 

Up two slots to second place go Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line with their runaway country smash “Meant To Be.”

It also leads Billboard’s Hot Country Songs list for a massive 18th week. This is a new countdown high for both acts: Bebe previously hit seventh place with “Me, Myself, and I” featuring G-Eazy, while Florida Georgia Line made it to fourth place with their debut pop hit, “Cruise.”

Number 1: Drake “God’s Plan” 

Drake makes it nine weeks at No. 1 with “God’s Plan,” and he’s dropping hints about a new album.

In January, Drake released a two-song EP titled “Scary Hours,” and more music may be on the way. On April 1, the Canadian rapper posted an Instagram photo captioned, “You can see the album hours under my eyes.”

Our time is done for today, but we’ll return next week with a new lineup. VOA
