The Weeknd’s ‘Heartless’ Hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100

Published: Monday 9th Dec 2019 by Rashad

As we reported here, The Weeknd‘s recently released duo of singles – ‘Heartless’ and ‘Blinding Lights’ – were out of the box successes.

Zooming to the top of real-time iTunes sales and Spotify streaming charts, the songs respectively dominated competition on the tallies ahead of the release of their accompanying visuals.  The former saw that dominance cemented courtesy of a boost from its Anton Tammi-directed music video and mind-bending live performance last week on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ (click here to read).

Now, thanks to the aforementioned (alongside a warm reception from radio), the Metro Boomin-produced track has become the singer’s fourth Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper.  Details inside:

Billboard reports:

“‘Heartless’ bounds 15-1 on Digital Song Sales with 58,000 sold… “Heartless” flies 32-2 on Streaming Songs with 30 million U.S. streams… The track also charges 45-38 on Radio Songs, with 26.2 million in all-format airplay audience, after beginning with 22.6 million on Nov. 27-Dec. 1.

The Weeknd adds his fourth Hot 100 No. 1. He earned his first two leaders in August and October 2015, respectively: “Can’t Feel My Face,” which reigned for three weeks, and “The Hills,” for six. In January 2017, he led for a week with “Starboy,” featuring Daft Punk.

“Heartless” is also The Weeknd’s ninth Hot 100 top 10 and first since “Call Out My Name,” which debuted and peaked at No. 4 in April 2018.

The Weeknd has co-written all four of his Hot 100 chart-toppers.


Congrats are certainly due to the singer and team.  We anxiously await news on what songs will accompany ‘Lights’ and ‘Heartless’ on the Grammy-winner’s highly anticipated fourth studio album, the follow-up to 2016’s Billboard 200 chart-topping ‘Starboy.’

    This is what Camila needed to make her album pop better…a number 1 song. I cant even lie anyone bragging on her inflated tour bundle numbers this week is in for a HUGE disappointment when she flops worse than Celine next week.

      This is actually what Camila needed but Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are just huge artist and plus Selena almost everything she does goes too 40 automatically. I mean she does have 16 top 40 hits in a row.

      And Céline Dion???? Lol her new album went number one with over 100,000 copies sold if that’s what you mean and what the hell? A number 3 is not a flop either. You people really are the worst fan group for whoever that I’ve ever heard of and you can’t even get any of your facts straight.

    And just like that….BAM! ?? ? A King ??

    Multiple number 1 songs, some people can not relate

    Second number one album on the way for queen cabello.

    Normani dont have nothing

      The album will not hit #1. Sophomore slump. The world is over Camila and you need to learn how to cope for the sake of your mental health.

      Camila is seriously the 2019 version of Megan Trainor. I mean she even the same flop sketchers ad, and now she’s about to suffer the same sophomore slump Megan did…then Epic will throw her away like they did Megan. At least Megan’s second album had two top 20 hits though….

      BYE CAMILA! Good luck with that tour you speak of 🙂

        Ur hurt and mad that this album gonna hit number one

        It’s a 3 way race for the top spot
        Romance is still number two on itunes after hit number one

        Romance is still the number one album world wide

        They didnt even factor in all the bundle sales.
        When they do ,the album will hit 100k

        Normani will not have a second album
        Normani will never have a number one song or album.

        I was about to say Megs album had two top twenties too and also debut at 3 but also with over 100,000 copies sold. But you two really need a life. Arguing over what both of you are right and wrong.

    • only facts December 9, 2019

      Good luck with that tour you speak of 🙂

        Madison Square garden almost sold out bìtch

        Tour starts In 8 months time before then, Camila will score another hit with that da baby song. The song was released 3 days ago and it already has 5 million streams.

        U hate to see it.
        How can 80k sales be a flop.
        For an album that leaked

    Aye Camilla Cabello! AYE CLARKSON! TAKES Notes! ✏? Now this is how you DEBUT and work a chart. ?

  5. Clarks0oñ December 9, 2019

    .@ShawnMendes & @Camila_Cabello’s “Señorita” departs the top 10 of the Hot 100 for the first time since its #2 debut in July.

    It spent 23 weeks in the top 10, including a week at #1.

    I don’t get it.
    When I first heard the song I thought it was a song from his last album, nothing special to me

  7. Austin December 11, 2019

    I love how people were dumping on Selena for writing about Justin and going number one but now when the weekend writes about her and Bella and goes number one nothing. Lol and Justin had a whole album about Sel remember Journals??? Lol love is a hot seller just face it .
