We're counting down the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart for the week ending July 9, 2016.

Not much changes this week.


Number 5: Calvin Harris Featuring Rihanna "This Is What You Came For"

At number 5, we've got Calvin Harris and Rihanna with "This Is What You Came For."

Guess who hyped up the crowd for Calvin Harris’ performance at London’s Wireless festival? Will Smith! Who was also overheard giving Calvin some relationship advice, saying “Hold out until it feels right, you’ll know when that is.”

Considering how long he and wife Jada have been together, I think it is fair to say Will Smith knows what he’s talking about.

Desiigner is a a 19-year-old rapper from Brooklyn, New York.

Number 4: Desiigner "Panda"

Dropping down a notch to number 4 is Desiigner with "Panda".

Even though Desiigner just released his debut mix-tape New English last month, he’s already talking about his new album. He teased that it could come out the top of next year or even tomorrow. We’ll just have to keep our ears to these internet streets.

Number 3: Chainsmokers Featuring Daya "Don't Let Me Down"

"Don’t Let Me Down" by the Chainsmokers featuring Daya slides up a spot to number three. They just announced that their follow up single will drop July 29th. No word yet on the song’s title.

Number 2: Justin Timberlake "Can't Stop The Feeling"

Did you know that David Bowie influenced Justin Timberlake’s success? True story.

JT's latest single "Can’t Stop the Feeling" remains locked in the number two spot this week. He recently shared how another huge hit of his Sexy Back was influenced by David Bowie. JT said he was listening to a lot of Bowie, songs like "Star Dust" and "Diamond Doggs," and he played “Rebel Rebel" over and over again like 15 times the day before” he wrote the Grammy winning smash, SexyBack.

Number 1: Drake Featuring Wizkid and Kyla "One Dance"

Nothing can seem to smash Drakes’ winning streak. "One Dance" featuring Wizkid and Kyla still remains at number one.

In the midst of all his success, both Drake and Rihanna took time to pay tribute to a loyal fan who died of cancer this past week. Teenager Megan Flores met Drake in March through the Make a Wish Foundation & inspired him to dedicate his album Views to her saying “I pray for your well-being every day.”

Megan met Rihanna through Drake and she too took to Instagram to lovingly share how Megan was an angel on earth, saying “You brightened any day. Rest up baby girl. Will miss you.”

That’s it for the countdown, join us next week for a brand new lineup.
