Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like” climbs from No. 3 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated May 13), becoming the pop/R&B superstar’s seventh Hot 100 No. 1.
Meanwhile, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” featuring Justin Bieber, bounds 9-4 and takes over as the best-selling song of the week; The Chainsmokers become only the second act to chart in the Hot 100’s top 10 for at least a year non-stop (52 weeks consecutively); and Kygo and Selena Gomez’s “It Ain’t Me” hits the top 10, pushing 13-10.
As we do every Monday, let’s run down the top 10 of the Hot 100, which blends sales, airplay and streaming data. All charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow, May 2.
“Like,” released on Atlantic Records, becomes the 1,063rd No. 1 in the Hot 100’s history (which dates to Aug. 4, 1958). It’s Mars’ first leader since he ruled for 14 weeks as featured on Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!” in 2015 and his first as a lead artist since “When I Was Your Man” topped the April 20, 2013-dated Hot 100.
With Mars having tallied his first No. 1 as an artist on May 1, 2010 (exactly seven years ago today), as the featured artist on B.o.B’s “Nothin’ On You,” he moves closer to the mark for the most No. 1s this decade: His seven are the most among male artists in the 2010s and, overall, trail only Rihanna’s nine and Katy Perry’s eight this decade. (Mars boasts more than twice as many Hot 100 No. 1s in the ’10s than any other male; he extends his lead over Bieber, Drake, Eminem and The Weeknd, each with three in that span.)
