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.
Outside of the Top Ten, The Weeknd and Calvin Harris enjoyed the week’s biggest debut: “Over Now,” a downtempo disco collaboration penned by ten different songwriters, picked up 8.6 million streams, good for a Number 17 debut. Internet Money’s “Blastoff,” which features vocals from Juice WRLD and Trippie Redd, arrived at Number 30 (7.8 million streams), and Chris Stapleton was the only other artist to launch a new song, “Starting Over,” into the Top 40.
A series of rap collaborations also debuted on the lower reaches of the RS 100: Ty Dolla $ign and Nicki Minaj’s “Expensive” (Number 71, 4 million streams), Cordae and Roddy Ricch’s “Gifted” (Number 73, 5.3 million streams), and Big Sean and Nipsey Hussle’s “Deep Reverence (Number 86, 4.6 million streams).
