The Weeknd’s “Starboy” Finally Hits No. 1

The Weeknd comes alive in the winter time.

After eight weeks at No. 2 on the Hot 100, The Weeknd finally lands atop the charts with his album title track “Starboy,” giving the singer his third No. 1 and Daft Punk’s first ever.

Numbers jargon from Billboard:

“Starboy,” released on XO/Republic Records, and the title cut from his new album (which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 dated Dec. 17), reaches No. 1 in its 14th week on the Hot 100. It also crowns the Digital Song Sales chart for the first time (5-1), logging the chart’s greatest week-over-week sales gain (up 28,000), surging by 49 percent to 86,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 22. Its coronation on both charts was boosted by 69-cent sale-pricing in the iTunes Store during the tracking week.

“Starboy” holds at No. 3 on Streaming Songs (25 million U.S. streams, down 2 percent) and dips 4-5 on Radio Songs (106 million in airplay audience, down 7 percent). It peaked at No. 2 on both lists.
