The Rolling Stone Top 100 chart tracks the most popular songs of the week in the United States. Songs are ranked by song units, a number that combines audio streams and song sales using a custom weighting system. The chart does not include passive listening like terrestrial radio or digital radio. The Rolling Stone Top 100 chart is updated daily, and each week Rolling Stone finalizes and publishes an official version of the chart, covering the seven-day period ending with the previous Thursday.
Elsewhere on the chart, “Heat Waves” by Glass Animals hit a new peak at Number 11, continuing to rise on the chart in its 34th week. This is the third longest time a song has charted on the RS 100 and hit a new peak. Ed Sheeran scored the week’s biggest debut with “Shivers” at Number 18, and Chlöe made her RS 100 debut with “Have Mercy” at Number 27.
Next week, expect high debuts from tracks off of Lil Nas X’s Montero, as well as Taylor Swift’s surprise release of “Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)”.
