Ariana Grande continues her chart domination, as her single “7 Rings” spends a third week on top of the Billboard Hot 100.

The song, Ari’s second to debut at #1, is from her new album Thank U, Next. In addition to staying at #1 on the Hot 100, it’s also #1 on the Streaming Songs and Digital Songs charts. On Billboard’s Radio Songs chart, which is based on airplay, it’s reached the top 10. It took only three weeks for the song to reach that rank — the fastest of any track since Drake‘s “In My Feelings” last summer.

Meanwhile, “Happier” by Bastille and Marshmello, has jumped from #8 to to #2 on the Hot 100, which is the highest its ever gotten. It previously reached #3 back in November, but this new peak is thanks to Marshmello’s virtual Fortnite concert. The 10-minute concert, held February 2, featured Marshmello mixing a bunch of his tracks in the game’s Pleasant Park location. 

The performance was later uploaded to YouTube and Apple Music, and all that streaming helped boost “Happier’s” chart position. The track is the biggest Hot 100 hit for both Bastille and Marshmello.
