Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" leads the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated April 15) for a 10th week, joining an exclusive club of hits that have ruled for double-digit weeks in the chart's 58-year history.
Overall, "Shape" is the first title to top the Hot 100 for double-digit frames since The Chainsmokers' "Closer," featuring Halsey, which led for 12 weeks in 2016. Earlier in 2016, Drake's 10-week No. 1 "One Dance," featuring WizKid and Kyla, became the last such smash among solo males prior to Sheeran's.
Back to this week, with more Mars: his "That's What I Like" holds at its No. 2 high on the Hot 100. It pushes 3-2 on Radio Songs (119 million, up 15 percent), earning the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for the fifth time in the last six weeks. The track keeps at No. 2 on Digital Song Sales (79,000, down 1 percent) and rises 6-3 on Streaming Songs (30.1 million, up 9 percent). "Like" notches a seventh week at No. 1 on Billboard's Hot R&B Songs chart and a third atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
And, more Chainsmokers: the twosome of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart zooms 7-3 on the Hot 100 with "Something Just Like This," its collab with Coldplay. The song passes its prior No. 5 high to tie for The Chainsmokers' second-highest-charting hit: before their 12-week No. 1 "Closer," "Don't Let Me Down," featuring Daya, reached No. 3 in July 2016. Coldplay has charted higher only with "Viva La Vida," its sole No. 1 in 2008.
"Something" stays at No. 4 on Digital Song Sales (59,000, down 1 percent) and surges 18-12 on Radio Songs (59 million, up 20 percent) and 25-15 on Streaming Songs (18.3 million, up 3 percent). It leads the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a fourth week.
Thanks to "Something," as well as the duo's No. 6-peaking "Paris," which rebounds 10-9, The Chainsmokers have now spent 48 consecutive weeks in the Hot 100's top 10, dating to May 21, 2016 (and encompassing four top 10s), tying Ace of Base's record streak among non-solo acts.

Rounding out the Hot 100's top five, The Weeknd's "I Feel It Coming," featuring Daft Punk, hits a new peak, rising 5-4, led by its identical 5-4 lift on Radio Songs (98 million, up 1 percent). Plus, KYLE returns to the top 10 at a new high, charging 12-5 with his debut hit "iSpy," featuring Lil Yachty; it had reached a prior No. 10 best rank two weeks ago.

Streaming leads the way for "iSpy," which jumps 8-6 on Streaming Songs (26.9 million, up 14 percent). The track also continues to add airplay, as it rises 44-36 on Radio Songs (34 million, up 20 percent).
"iSpy" additionally takes over at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart, becoming KYLE's first leader and Lil Yachty's second; "Broccoli" ruled the list for nine weeks.
