After several weeks of trying, Bruno Mars has finally hit number-one on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart with “That’s What I Like,” so almost a month as a runner-up on the chart has finally paid off. Watch the complete top-10 countdown above.
“That’s What I Like” spent four nonconsecutive weeks at number-two. the first three of those were behind Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You,” which dominated the chart for 12 weeks. Then last week Sheeran finally slipped from his perch, but he was bumped by Kendrick Lamar‘s “Humble,” which got a boost from the April 14 release of Lamar’s bestselling album “DAMN.” Lamar’s reign only lasted a week, but instead of Sheeran taking back to top spot, it was Mars who capitalized.
This is Mars’s seventh chart-topping single on the Hot 100, following “Nothin’ on You” with B.o.B (2009), “Just the Way You Are” (2010), “Grenade” (2010), “Locked Out of Heaven” (2012), “When I Was Your Man” (2013) and “Uptown Funk” with Mark Ronson (2014). And it’s the first number-one single from his latest album “24K Magic,” which was released last fall.
This week Sheeran’s “Shape of You” is number-two for the second straight week, followed by Lamar’s “Humble” down in third place. The number-four spot belongs to “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber, which makes a big jump from number-nine on the strength of this week’s best digital sales. Future’s “Mask Off” holds steady in the number-five position.
Other noteworthy entries in the top 10 include The Chainsmokers and Coldplay with “Something Just Like This” at number-six, which marks the Chainsmoker’s 52nd straight week in the top 10. That gives them the second longest top-10 run in history, behind only Katy Perry (69 weeks). And coming in at number-10 is “It Ain’t Me” by Kygo and Selena Gomez, which is up from number-13.
