After debuting high on the chart last week, both Post Malone’s “Motley Crew” and Bia’s “Whole Lotta Money” remix fell out of the Top Ten. Malone’s track settled at Number 11 (11.3 million streams), while Bia’s collaboration with Nicki Minaj dropped to Number 25 (8.7 million streams).

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 RS 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.

The biggest debut of the week belonged to Normani and Cardi B, who launched at Number 10 with “Wild Side.” Pop Smoke launched the most new songs onto the RS 100, charting a slew of tracks from the posthumous album Faith. The leader was “Tell the Vision” with Kanye West and Pusha T, which reached Number 23 (9.3 million streams). “Bout a Million” with 42 Dugg and 21 Savage also landed in the Top 40. 

Next week, expect Lil Nas X’s new single “Industry Baby” with Jack Harlow to land high on the RS 100. Two other collaborations, Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood’s “If I Didn’t Love You” and Smiley and Drake’s “Over the Top,” are also likely to perform well.
