The Weeknd’s “Heartless” Song Reaches No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100
The Weeknd has plenty to smile about.
The R&B singer nabbed his fourth No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with his latest single, “Heartless.” According to the publication, the song, co-produced by Illangelo, Weeknd and Metro Boomin, skyrocketed from No. 32 to the top spot in its second week on the chart. The tune is also atop the Digital Song Sales chart as well.
The Canadian singer sold 58,000 copies of the song last week through download sales, as well as CD and vinyl single sales available at The Weeknd’s official website. The song sold 10,000 on Nov. 27-28.
As for streaming numbers, “Heartless” moved 30 million U.S. streams last week with 13.8 million streams pushed on Nov. 27-28.
This is the Weeknd’s fourth No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart. His previous chart-toppers are “Starboy” in January 2017, “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills” in August and October 2015, respectively. "Heartless" is also the Grammy Award-winning singer’s ninth Hot 100 top 10 and his first since "Call Out My Name,” debuted and peaked at No. 4 in April 2018.
On a side note, hitmaker Metro Boomin notched his second No. 1 as a writer on the song following his previous involvement on the chart-topping hit “Bad and Boujee” by the Migos, featuring Lil Uzi Vert, in 2017.
The Weeknd’s “Heartless” ousted Post Malone's "Circles” on the Hot 100 chart, which reigned at No. 1 for two weeks.
Congrats to the Weeknd!
