Sheeran's "Shape," released on Atlantic Records, also logs a ninth week at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart (97,000 downloads sold, down 7 percent, in the week ending March 23, according to Nielsen Music), as well as a seventh week at No. 1 on Radio Songs (171 million in audience, up 3 percent, in the week ending March 26). Notably, the song is the first to crack the 170-million audience barrier since Adele's "Hello" (172 million) on Jan. 16, 2016. "Shape" also leads the Streaming Songs chart for a third frame (46.4 million U.S. streams, down 3 percent, in the week ending March 23)
Impressively, "Shape" has topped the Hot 100's three main component charts (Digital Song Sales, Radio Songs and Streaming Songs) simultaneously for three weeks running. Since Streaming Songs launched in early 2013 (as the youngest of the three lists), only two songs had previously led the trio of tallies (as well as the Hot 100) for at least three straight weeks at the same time: The Chainsmokers' "Closer," featuring Halsey (six weeks, 2016), and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk!," featuring Bruno Mars (streaks of six and three weeks, 2015).
Speaking of Mars, his "That's What I Like" holds at its No. 2 high on the Hot 100. It climbs 3-2 on Digital Song Sales (80,000, up 3 percent) and 5-3 on Radio Songs (103 million, up 18 percent), while dipping 4-6 on Streaming Songs despite a 3 percent rise to 27.7 million. The song also nabs the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for the fourth time in the last five weeks. "Like" logs a sixth week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot R&B Songs chart and a second week atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
Rounding out the Hot 100's top five, Zayn and Taylor Swift's "I Don't Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)" rebounds 4-3, after hitting No. 2; Migos' "Bad and Boujee," featuring Lil Uzi Vert, drops 3-4 following three nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1, while topping the Hot Rap Songs chart for a 12th week; and The Weeknd's "I Feel It Coming," featuring Daft Punk, is steady at its No. 5 peak.
Kodak Black's first Hot 100 top 10, "Tunnel Vision," bullets for a third week at its No. 6 Hot 100 high, while The Chainsmokers again chart two songs in the top 10: "Something Just Like This," with Coldplay, rises 8-7 after reaching No. 5, while leading the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a third (nonconsecutive) week, and "Paris" dips 9-10 on the Hot 100 after rising to No. 6.
Meanwhile, The Chainsmokers, the twosome of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, have now spent 47 consecutive weeks in the Hot 100's top 10, dating to May 21, 2016 (and encompassing four top 10s), moving to within a week of matching Ace of Base's record streak for a duo or group.
In between The Chainsmokers two current Hot 100 top 10s, Drake soars in with two debuts, both from his new album More Life: "Passionfruit," at No. 8, and "Portland," at No. 9. Drake is only the second artist to debut two songs in the Hot 100's top 10 simultaneously, following Sheeran, whose "Shape" and "Castle on the Hill" launched at Nos. 1 and 6, respectively, on the Jan. 28-dated chart.
More Drake honors: With the debuts, Drake ups his count to 20 career Hot 100 top 10s, becoming the 17th artist in the chart's 58-year history to hit the mark (and tying the totals of Chicago, The Supremes and Swift). Madonna leads with 38 top 10s, followed by The Beatles (34), Rihanna (30) and Michael Jackson, the front-runner among solo males with 29.
