Post Malone dominated the RS 100 this week thanks to the release of his new album Hollywood’s Bleeding. Songs off the album accounted for nine of the Top Ten and 14 of the Top 20, with the leader being “Circles,” in its second week at Number One. Malone’s chart onslaught was driven by a deluge of streams. The only artist that wasn’t swept out of the Top Ten was Malone’s labelmate, the rising rapper Lil Tecca, whose “Ransom” held on at Number Nine.
Aside from “Circles,” Malone’s best-performing tracks were “Take What You Want,” which made headlines thanks to the unusual combination of guest vocalists (Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott), the new album’s title track, which is the first song on the set, and “Enemies,” which includes a verse from the red-hot rapper Dababy. “Saint-Tropez,” perhaps the most conventional radio-ready track on Hollywood’s Bleeding, was also well received, debuting at Number Five.
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.
Only one other artist enjoyed multiple debuts on the RS 100 this week: Camila Cabello. “Liar,” a jaunty, ska-flecked single arrived at Number 49, while the arena-rock track “Shameless” reached Number 54. Both singles were produced by Andrew Watt in conjunction with The Monsters & Strangerz.
