Post Malone’s “I Had Some Help,” featuring Morgan Wallen, logs a fifth total and consecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. The song, Post Malone’s sixth leader and Wallen’s second, is the first to notch at least its first five weeks on the chart at No. 1 since Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” spent its first six weeks on the survey at the summit in January-March 2023.

“I Had Some Help” is also the first hit to spend five consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 overall in nearly a year, since Wallen’s “Last Night” linked 10 straight frames on top, of 16 total, in May-July 2023. The former also ties for the most weeks in the lead in 2024, matching Jack Harlow’s “Lovin On Me” (which tallied five of its six weeks at No. 1 this year).

Meanwhile, Sabrina Carpenter boasts two songs in the Hot 100’s top three – marking her first appearances in the tier – as “Please Please Please” debuts at No. 2 and “Espresso” ascends to a new No. 3 best. With the tracks, which introduce her album Short n’ Sweet, due Aug. 23, she becomes the first soloist – and just the second act overall, after The Beatles 60 years ago – in the Hot 100’s history to place two initial top-three hits with no other billed artists in the region simultaneously.

Plus, Hozier earns his first No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart with “Too Sweet,” at No. 7 on the Hot 100 after reaching No. 1, and Billie Eilish’s “Birds of a Feather” makes an 11-9 flight on the Hot 100, becoming her seventh top 10.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital singles sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites are excluded from chart calculations. All charts (dated June 22, 2024) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow, June 18.
