For the fifth week in a row, a song hits No. 1 on the Hot 100 for the first time, with the current ruler lifting to the peak spot after more than a month of living inside the top five and attempting to climb as high as a title can.

Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak’s new duo Silk Sonic push their debut single “Leave The Door Open” to No. 1 on the latest Hot 100, giving the band their first leader. .Paak reaches the throne for the first time in his career, while Mars earns his eighth champion on the tally.

Behind the powerful pairing and their introductory smash, two songs reach the Hot 100’s uppermost tier, with one act breaking into the region for the first time while another big single debuts inside the space.

A quartet of former leaders come next, with most of them descending as Mars and .Paak rise. After debuting at No. 1 last week, Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” dips to the runner-up space in its second frame on the Hot 100. Last period, it became his second champion and his first immediate ruler.

Down from No. 2 to No. 3 is another chart-topping debut, “Peaches” by Justin Bieber, Giveon and Daniel Caesar. Cardi B’s “Up” slips to No. 4, and while that smash didn’t start in first place, it eventually worked its way to the throne. Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License,” which opened atop the Hot 100 and held there for eight consecutive turns, keeps at No. 5, but that track only tells part of her success story this week.

The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” holds at No. 6, just a few spaces ahead of the R&B/pop musician’s other current top 10, “Blinding Lights.” That single, which sits at No. 9, extends its record as the longest-charting top 10 hit of all time on the Hot 100, as it has now lived inside the region for 57 weeks. Dua Lipa and DaBaby see their joint effort “Levitating” remain at No. 7.

Is it deja vu? No, it really is Olivia Rodrigo again! The pop sensation debuts her new single “Deja Vu” at No. 8, immediately making it another big win for the rising talent. The track is her second top 10, and only her second proper single, outside of music she’s released as part of the Disney+ show High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Both songs are set to be featured on her forthcoming debut album *O*R, currently scheduled for a May release date.

Down at No. 10 is “Astronaut in the Ocean,” the breakout smash single from Australian rapper Masked Wolf. The tune originally dropped several years ago, but after a re-release not long ago, it began bounding up charts all around the world. Now, it’s become his first top 10 hit in the U.S. as it surges from No. 12 to No. 10.
