On the charts: Week ending 01/29

This week’s top 10 songs and albums on the Billboard charts (02/13 issue).

Hot 100
01. (02) Justin Bieber – “Love Yourself”
02. (01) Justin Bieber – “Sorry”
03. (04) twenty one pilots – “Stressed Out”

10. (05) Alessia Cara – “Here”

Justin Bieber replaces himself at #1 with “Love Yourself.” The song is his 3rd #1 hit in the US, all coming from the same album.

A small adjustment to the chart formula to weigh digital sales more than streaming allows Rihanna to debut at #9 with her new single “Work,” the 4th released from her ANTI album in the span of a year.

Selena Gomez has a new entry in the top 10 as the music video for her new single “Hands to Myself” was released. The song is up from just outside the top 20 to #7, pushing her older single down a spot.

With only a new entry in the top 10, the chart remains pretty static for the week.

New this week at #45 is Fantasia’s new single “No Time For It,” fueled by a strong performance at Urban Adult radio thus far. The top debut is, however, “Work” by Rihanna and Drake at #15 thanks to a hourly play deal at Clear Channel-owned Urban stations upon its debut.
