More from GoldDerby

This is Lamar’s fourth number-one hit and his second chart-topper unaccompanied by another artist, following “Humble.” This diss track is part of his longstanding feud with fellow rapper Drake. The two artists have traded tracks and accusations back and forth, but this single came out on top while Drake’s “Family Matters” debuted at number-seven.

Taylor Swift feat. Post Malone, “Fortnight”

2 weeks at number-one
May 4 – May 11

The lead single from her album “The Tortured Poets Department” debuted at number-one the same week the album dropped. It’s the 12th number-one hit of her career, which ranks her sixth among all artists. “Tortured Poets” launched all of its 31 tracks onto the Hot 100, including a sweep of the top 14 slots on the chart. Meanwhile, Post Malone achieves his fifth number-one hit.

Hozier, “Too Sweet”

1 week at number-one
April 27

This is the first number-one single of Hozier’s career, doing one spot better than his previous high water mark, “Take Me to Church,” which peaked at number-two. It’s also the fifth hit by an Irish artist to ascend to the top.

Future, Metro Boomin and Kendrick Lamar, “Like That”

3 weeks at number-one
April 6 – April 20

This is the third number-one hit for Future, the third for Kendrick Lamar, and the first for Metro Boomin as a credited recording artist; Metro previously topped the chart twice as a writer/producer. In its debut week, the single achieved the most weekly streams for any song since Miley Cyrus‘s “Flowers” in 2023. “Like That” debuted in the top spot the same week its parent album, Metro and Future’s “We Don’t Trust You,” debuted atop the Billboard 200.

Teddy Swims, “Lose Control”

1 week at number-one
March 30

This is Swims’s first song to chart on the Hot 100 and his first to reach number-one. It took 32 weeks on the chart for the song to finally ascend to the top, which is longest road to number-one for any male solo artist.

Ariana Grande, “We Can’t Be Friends (Wait for Your Love)”

1 week at number-one
March 23

This is Ariana Grande’s ninth number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 and the second from her album “Eternal Sunshine,” which a few weeks earlier sent “Yes, And?” to the top of the chart. It’s Grande’s seventh song to debut at the top, which is the most ever among women. Max Martin achieves his record-extending 25th number-one hit as a producer.

Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign feat. Rich the Kid and Playboi Carti, “Carnival”

1 week at number-one
March 16

This is Kanye West’s fifth number-one single, Ty Dolla $ign’s second and the first for both Rich the Kid and Playboi Carti. West becomes the first rapper to score number-one singles in the 2000s, 2010s and 2020s. West also has the longest span of number-one hits for a rap artist.

Beyonce, “Texas Hold ‘Em”

2 weeks at number-one
March 2 – March 9

This is Beyonce’s ninth number-one hit as a solo artist. It’s also her historic first chart-topper on the Hot Country Songs chart: she’s the first Black woman ever to lead that survey. “Texas Hold ‘Em” was released alongside “16 Carriages” as the lead singles from her new album scheduled for release on March 29.

Megan Thee Stallion, “Hiss”

1 week at number-one
February 10

This diss track debuted at number-one. It’s Megan Thee Stallion’s third song to reach the top spot, following “Savage” with Beyonce and “WAP” with Cardi B. This is her first solo number-one.

Ariana Grande, “Yes, And?”

1 week at number-one
January 27

This is the eighth Grande song to top the chart and her sixth to debut at number-one. It also makes history for producer Max Martin, who achieves his 24th number-one hit, the most of any producer in Hot 100 history. Half of Grande’s chart-toppers have been collaborations. This is just her fourth hit to reach the summit without another credited artist, following “Thank U Next,” “7 Rings” and “Positions.”

Jack Harlow, “Lovin on Me”

5 weeks at number-one in 2024 (6 weeks total)
January 13 – January 20; February 3; February 17 – February 24

After all the holiday songs dropped off the chart in the week after Christmas, Harlow’s single leaped up from number-nine back to number-one after previously spending a week on top in December. It’s his third chart-topper, following “Industry Baby” with Lil Nas X and “First Class.” It’s also his longest-running chart-topper.

Brenda Lee, “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”

1 week at number-one in 2024 (3 weeks total)
January 6

The classic holiday song reached number-one during the 2023 holiday season. It was the song’s first time ever at the top a remarkable 65 years after its release way back in 1958. This is just the third holiday song ever to top the chart, following The Chipmunks and David Seville’s “The Chipmunk Song” and Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want for Christmas is You.” It’s also Brenda Lee’s third song to reach the pinnacle. “Rockin’ Around” spent a total of three weeks on top during this competitive holiday period.

SEEMariah Carey number-one songs, ranked from worst to best: All 19 chart-topping hits

The Billboard Hot 100 has tracked the industry’s most popular music since back in 1958, starting with the very first number-one hit, Ricky Nelson‘s “Poor Little Fool.” Since then more than 1,100 songs have reached the top, though Billboard’s methodology has evolved over the years as the music industry and technology have advanced.

For example, sales were once tracked by Nielsen from Monday to Sunday, but in 2015 that changed to Friday to Thursday. Also, in the earlier years of the charts, sales were given more weight than radio airplay because single purchases were much more common than they have been lately. That changed as full-length albums became more prevalent and single sales went down. Similarly, in 1998 Billboard updated its rules again to allow a song to appear on the Hot 100 even if it was airplay-only and wasn’t available to purchase. In 2007 Billboard began counting audio streaming performance towards the Hot 100. And in 2013 YouTube video streams were added to the formula, bringing the chart more in line with how music is consumed in the modern era.

The Beatles hold the record for the most number-one hits with 20 different chart-toppers. They’re followed closely by Mariah Carey, who has had 19 songs reach numberthe summit. Carey’s 1995 duet with Boyz II Men, “One Sweet Day,” set the record for the most weeks at number-one with 16. That record stood for more than two decades before it was tied by “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber in 2017, and then ultimately broken by Lil Nas X, whose “Old Town Road” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus dominated the chart for 19 weeks in 2019. But the song named by Billboard as the number-one of all time was The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights,” which spent only four weeks at number-one but shattered the record for the most weeks in the top 10 with more than a year in that upper echelon.
