We’re in action with the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending June 9, 2018.
Chart-watchers should like this week’s lineup: not only do we welcome a returning title, the championship also changes hands.
Number 5: Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey "The Middle"
Zedd, Maren Morris and U.S. duo Grey move into fifth place with “The Middle.”
Zedd says his self-driving Tesla car saved his life. The DJ went on Twitter to credit his car’s autopilot function for keeping him on the road after he fell asleep. You can read more by going to our Facebook page, VOA1TheHits.
Number 4: Post Malone & Ty Dolla $ign "Psycho"
Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign continue to slumber in fourth place with “Psycho.” Away from the chart, though, Post is keeping busy. He and Nicki Minaj will co-headline this year’s Made In America Festival.
Scheduled for September 1 and 2, the Philadelphia festival will include Meek Mill, Diplo, Janelle Monae, and other top acts. On June 5, Post also took to Twitter to say he’s writing songs for his third studio album.
Number 3: Drake "God's Plan"
Drake holds in third place with his former 11-week champ “God’s Plan.” Down in sixth place, Drake and Lil Baby are on the move with “Yes Indeed.” It marks Drake’s 26th Top 10 appearance in the Hot 100. That moves him past Elvis Presley for ninth place among artists with the most Top 10 singles. Drake still has work to do, though: Madonna leads the list with 38.
Number 2: Childish Gambino "This Is America"
Childish Gambino loses his singles crown in second place with “This Is America.” He’ll perform at festivals in Spain and the U.K. on July 12 and 14, respectively. September will find him back in North America on a month-long tour with Rae Sremmurd and Vince Staples.
Number 1: Drake "Nice For What"
The chart force known as Drake re-takes the Hot 100 title with “Nice For What.”
Away from the charts, Drake has been mired in a war of words with fellow rapper Pusha T. Last week, Pusha T released “The Story Of Adidon,” which accused Drake of being a deadbeat dad to a secret son. This week, record executive and Drake friend J. Prince said he persuaded Drake not to release a response single which he said could potentially end Pusha T’s career.
The charts just keep on going, so don’t miss any of the action and join us next week!
