LISTEN:

Number 5: Shawn Mendes “Stitches”

Shawn Mendes rises three slots to fifth place with “Stitches.” Born in Toronto, Canada, Shawn began posting song snippets on Vine in 2013 - bear in mind that Vine videos are only six seconds long - And he still collected millions of followers in a matter of months.

Back in April, Shawn’s debut album Handwritten opened at number one on the Billboard chart. He’s been touring North America with Taylor Swift and has plenty of momentum going right now.

Rapper Fetty Wap performs at Power 105.1's Powerhouse 2015 at Barclays Center on Oct. 22, 2015, in Brooklyn, New York.

Number 4: Fetty Wap and Remy Boyz “679”

Fetty Wap and Remy Boyz take it a slot higher to fourth place with “679.” Fetty returned to the stage on October 22 after breaking his leg last month in a motorcycle accident. He performed atop a golden throne…much like Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl, who broke “his” leg in June, after falling offstage in Sweden.

Number 2: Drake "Hotline Bling"

Drake holds in second place on the Hot 100 with “Hotline Bling” – he has yet to hit number one as a lead artist. Last week, Drake released the brightly-colored video, which showed him dancing in a variety of outfits…it turns out Drake dances like the rest of us, which led to many creative Internet memes.

The Weeknd performs at Made in America on Sept. 6, 2015, in Philadelphia.

Number 1: The Weeknd "The Hills"

This week’s top artist has only one request: please don’t pet his hair.

The Weeknd logs a fifth week atop the Hot 100 with “The Hills.” Speaking with Rolling Stone Magazine, the Canadian singer recalls chatting with Taylor Swift last February at a Grammy after-party. He says she kept praising his music…while petting his hair. (He did say that everyone was a bit drunk at the time.)

We'll be rolling your way next week with a brand new lineup, so join us if you can.
