We’re feasting on the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending Nov. 25, 2017.
It’s Thanksgiving week, and right on schedule, the chart sends us a tasty new title.
Number 5: Imagine Dragons “Thunder”
Let’s begin in fifth place, where Imagine Dragons continues to hold with “Thunder.”
This Las Vegas band made out well at the American Music Awards on November 20, when they performed with Khalid. They did a great mash-up of “Thunder” and “Young Dumb and Broke.” Imagine Dragons also took home a third trophy, this time for Favorite Pop/Rock Group.
Number 4: Sam Smith “Too Good at Goodbyes”
It’s a banner week for Sam Smith on the charts — he racks up his third Top Five hit in the Hot 100, as “Too Good At Goodbyes” shoots from 10th to fourth place.
Sam is also this week’s album champ, as “The Thrill Of It All” sells 237,000 album-equivalent units here in the States. Sam’s debut album, “In The Lonely Hour,” only hit the runner-up slot in the U.S.
Number 3: Cardi B “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)”
Cardi B treads water in third place with her ex-champ “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves).”
Fans are clamoring for an album, but the New York rapper says she’s in no hurry. Posting November 19 on Twitter, she explained that she’s feeling pressured to produce a great album … and she’s taking her time to make good songs.
Number 2: Camila Cabello Featuring Young Thug ‘Havana”
Camila Cabello and Young Thug continue to occupy the runner-up slot with “Havana.”
MTV U.K. reports that Camila has ditched the title of her upcoming debut solo album. It will no longer be titled “The Hurting, The Healing, The Loving” — but Camila’s not yet ready to reveal the new name. She says her new, happier state of mind spurred her to make the change. The new set should drop early next year.
Number 1: Post Malone Featuring 21 Savage “Rockstar”
Post Malone and 21 Savage hold the Hot 100 title for a fifth solid week with “Rockstar.”
In a recent podcast interview, Post revealed that his second album “Beerbongs & Bentleys” will arrive December 1. The guest list will reportedly include Nicki Minaj, John Mayer, Ty Dolla $ign and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
We hope you’ll be our guest next week when we’ll crown a new lineup.
