With a third non-consecutive week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Morgan Wallen’s “Last Night” leads a busy top 10. It was the country singer-songwriter’s first No. 1 when it debuted last month.

The track is from the album One Thing at a Time by Wallen, which spends a sixth week atop the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Drake’s “Search & Rescue” debuts at No. 2 in the Hot 100’s top tier. It is the record-breaking superstar’s 68th top 10 position.

Additionally, “Ella Baila Sola” by Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma makes history on the Hot 100, becoming both the first regional Mexican top 10 and Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma’s first top 10 in the chart’s 64-year history.

The Hot 100 combines sales data, radio airplay across all genres, and official U.S. streaming (audio and video). Tomorrow, April 18, Billboard.com will update with all charts (dated April 22, 2022).

According to Luminate, Wallen’s “Last Night,” which was released on Big Loud/Mercury/Republic Records, received 10,000 downloads (up 6%), 36.6 million streams (up 4%), and 34.5 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 16%, good for the chart’s top Airplay Gainer award for a second consecutive week).

The song drops from No. 1 to No. 2 on the all-genre Streaming Songs chart after five weeks at the top; it stays at No. 3 on the Digital Song Sales list after reaching the top; and it moves up 21-17 on the Radio Songs chart. A multi-format radio smash, it opens at No. 27 on Adult Contemporary and climbs to No. 13 on the Country Airplay chart, No. 20 on Pop Airplay, and No. 21 on Adult Pop Airplay.

For the tenth week in a row, “Last Night” is at the top of the Hot Country Songs chart, which follows the same formula as the Hot 100. It was the first time a solo male without any other acts topped both charts since Eddie Rabbitt’s “I Love a Rainy Night” dominated the Hot 100 for two weeks in 1981, becoming just the 20th song to do so.

For the first time among songs that have topped both charts with that many weeks at the top since Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” also spent 10 and three weeks at No. 1 respectively in 2012–2013, “Last Night” has now ruled Hot Country Songs for 10 weeks and the Hot 100 for three.

Drake’s “Search & Rescue” rockets to No. 4 on the Hot 100. It began with 33.8 million streams after it debuted on April 7 (the day after he announced the song’s impending release), 6.9 million people listened to it on radio, and 3,600 copies were sold through April 13.

The song debuts at No. 1 on Streaming Songs and becomes Drake’s 16th all-time leader. (Even though “Search & Rescue” has the second-highest total of raw streams this week, behind Wallen’s “Last Night,” the song tops the chart because all other titles’ paid/subscription and ad-supported on-demand streaming and programmed/radio streams are given equal weighting.)

Drake posts his first top 10 Hot 100 ranking of 2023 and a record-extending 68th overall.

Most Billboard Hot 100 Top 10s:

  • 68, Drake
  • 40, Taylor Swift
  • 38, Madonna
  • 34, The Beatles
  • 32, Rihanna
  • 30, Michael Jackson
  • 29, Elton John
  • 28, Mariah Carey
  • 28, Stevie Wonder
  • 27, Janet Jackson

In addition, “Search & Rescue” marks Drake’s record-breaking 35th top five Hot 100 success, further separating himself from runners-up The Beatles’ 29; his 174th top 40 single, beating out Taylor Swift’s 105; and his 294th entry overall, trailing only the Glee Cast’s 207. He now has 20 hits in the top two (The Beatles and Mariah Carey have the most with 23 each).

When the song debuted, it simultaneously topped the Hot Rap Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, marking Drake’s record-extending 27th and 28th No. 1s on the charts.

We conducted some further “search” and discovered that “Search & Rescue” has surpassed Survivor’s No. 4-peaking love song “The Search Is Over” in 1985 as the highest charting Hot 100 single containing the word “search” in its title. (An honorable mention goes to The Searchers’ “Love Potion Number Nine,” which peaked at No. 3 in 1965.) The biggest charting song using the word “rescue” is Drake’s latest single. It surpasses “Emotional Rescue” by The Rolling Stones (No. 3, 1980), which was followed by “Rescue Me” by Fontella Bass (No. 4, 1965).

After spending eight weeks at No. 1 starting with its January premiere, Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” is still at No. 3 on the Hot 100. It claims a ninth week at the top of Radio Songs (audience of 93.5 million, down 9%).

“Kill Bill” by SZA drops from No. 2, where it peaked for eight weeks, to No. 4 on the Hot 100. For the 17th week in a row, it also tops the multiple-metric Hot R&B Songs charts. (Its new remix with Doja Cat was released on Friday, April 14, and it will start to factor into the charts for the following week [dated April 29], with all renditions of the song combining into a single chart entry.)

After peaking at No. 3, “Creepin'” by Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, and 21 Savage drops to No. 4-5 while Rema and Selena Gomez’s “Calm Down” soars to a new peak of No. 7 on the Hot 100. The latter maintains its lead atop the Billboard U.S. Afrobeats Songs chart for a record-breaking 33rd week (in collaboration with music event and international brand Afro Nation).

Following a week at No. 1 in March, The Weeknd and Ariana Grande’s “Die for You” descends 5-7 on the Hot 100, and PinkPantheress and Ice Spice’s “Boy’s a Liar, Pt. 2” drops 6-8 after peaking at No. 3. Nevertheless, the latter enters the Radio Songs top 10 for the first time for each performer (14-10; 40.9 million, up 3%).

Following a personal-best eight weeks at No. 1 in November-January, Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” drops to Nos. 8 and 9 on the Hot 100. It has now spent 24 weeks in the top 10, matching Swift’s previous record, which “Shake It Off” achieved back in 2014–15. Her next three singles, “I Knew You Were Trouble.” (16 weeks, 2012-13), “You Belong With Me” (16, 2009), and “Blank Space” (totaling 17 weeks in the top 10 in 2014–15), came after that.

Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma’s “Ella Baila Sola,” which completes the Hot 100’s top 10, climbs 17-10 and jumps 6-3 on Streaming Songs thanks to 24.4 million streams, an increase of 30%. This song also receives the Hot 100’s top Streaming Gainer award.

Peso Pluma from Mexico and Quartet Eslabon Armado from California both make it to the top of the Hot 100 for the first time as “Ella Baila Sola” becomes the first regional Mexican song to ever reach the top 10. This decade has seen a rise in the genre, in part because to exposure on TikTok and other social media platforms. In May 2021, “Botella Tras Botella” by Gera MX and Christian Nodal became the first regional Mexican Hot 100 hit, peaking at No. 60.

Peso Pluma also has the second-highest regional Mexican Hot 100 success after “Ella Baila Sola,” “La Bebe,” with Yng Lvcas, which climbs to a new best of No. 17 on the most recent chart with a date of April 22. The next two such songs reached their maximum peaking positions: “Bebe Dame” by Fuerza Regida and Grupo Frontera (No. 25 this January) and Yahritza y Su Esencia’s “Soy El Unico” (No. 20, April 2022).

Regional Mexican follows Latin pop, a genre that experienced a boom in the late ’90s and beyond thanks to songs (in varying degrees of English and Spanish) by Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, and Ricky Martin, among other stars, after English-language hits by Gloria Estefan in the 1980s (plus Los Lobos’ “La Bamba,” in Spanish). Marc Anthony assisted tropical’s chart-topping success at the same period. In more recent years, “Despacito,” a song by Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi that features Justin Bieber and is primarily in Spanish, had a then-record-tying 16 weeks at No. 1, while this decade, Bad Bunny has carried the Latin rhythm banner in the top 10 with songs in Spanish.

Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma became the third Spanish-language top 10 artists on the Hot 100 this year, joining Karol G and Shakira’s “TQG” at No. 7 in March and Bizarrap and Shakira’s “Bzrp Music Sessions, Vol. 53” at No. 9 overall for Latin music.

“Ella Baila Sola” was published by Prajin Parlay/DEL Records, two labels that are also making their debut appearances in the Hot 100’s top 10.

On the multiple-metric Hot Latin Songs chart, where it became the first leader for both Eslabon Armado and Peso Pluma, the collaboration simultaneously earns a second week at No. 1. “We weren’t expecting the song to make such a racket,” The song’s only writer and lead singer, Pedro Tovar, said Billboard after it was crowned. “When I first composed the song, I really enjoyed it, but I didn’t really think it would be such a great hit. The song went viral on TikTok two days after I shared a preview of it on my Instagram stories, and at that point I knew it would be a tremendous hit.

Peso Pluma astonished, “Usually I don’t expect to chart with songs.” “We just took pleasure in doing it,”
