“One,” released April 28, opens at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 53.9 million U.S. streams in the week ending May 4, according to Nielsen Music. It also arrives atop the Digital Song Sales chart with 171,000 downloads sold in the week ending May 4. On Radio Songs, “One” is the week’s top debut at No. 33 with 35 million in all-format airplay audience in the week ending May 7. HustleTV 

Bieber earns his eighth Digital Song Sales No. 1 and third Streaming Songs No. 1, while Lil Wayne lands his third No. 1 on the sales list (and first on Streaming Songs). The other three acts on “One” rule each ranking for the first time.

Number ‘One’ debut: “One” is just the 28th title to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100. It’s the first since Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You” on the Jan. 28, 2017-dated chart. (“One” is the 1,064th total No. 1 in the history of the Hot 100, which began on Aug. 4, 1958.)

Meanwhile, “One” is the first rap song to debut atop the Hot 100 since Eminem’s “Not Afraid,” seven years ago this week (May 22, 2010).

Plus, “One” is the second song to debut atop the Hot 100 with, appropriately, the word “one” in its title: On Dec. 2, 1995, another superstar team-up, Mariah Careyand Boyz II Men‘s “One Sweet Day,” launched at the summit. It went on to spend a record 16 weeks at No. 1. Speaking of Carey… HustleTV

Bieber’s second No. 1 bow: Bieber becomes just the third artist to have debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with multiple titles. He first opened on top with his first leader, “What Do You Mean?” (Sept. 19, 2015). Carey leads with three No. 1 entrances (“Fantasy,” “One Sweet Day,” both in 1995, and “Honey,” 1997), while Britney Spears, like Bieber now, has made two such starts (“3,” in 2009, and “Hold It Against Me,” 2011).

Bieber & Lil Wayne’s latest Hot 100 leaders: Bieber and Lil Wayne are the chart-topping veterans on “One,” tallying their fourth and third Hot 100 No. 1, respectively. In addition to “One” and “Mean,” Bieber ruled in 2016 with “Sorry” and “Love Yourself.” Lil Wayne led with “Lollipop,” featuring Static Major, in 2008, and as featured on Jay Sean’s “Down,” in 2009.

The rest of the “One” team easily earns new Hot 100 highs. Khaled logged one prior top 10: “I’m On One,” featuring Drake, Rick Ross and (oh, look) Lil Wayne, which reached No. 10 in 2011. HustleTV

Quavo also collects his second top 10 (apart from Migos). Drake’s “Portland,” featuring Quavo and Travis Scott, debuted and peaked at No. 9 in April.

Chance the Rapper achieves not only his first Hot 100 No. 1 or top 10, but even his first top 40 hit: he’d climbed to a prior No. 41 best with his first entry, 2013’s featured turn on “Confident” by… Bieber.

Bieber goes fourth: Notably, Bieber has now earned more top five Hot 100 hits after his 2015 album Purpose than he did from the set: following the LP’s No. 1s “Mean,” “Sorry” and “Love Yourself,” he’s added four top fives in featured roles, on Major Lazer‘s “Cold Water” (also featuring MO; No. 2); DJ Snake‘s “Let Me Love You” (No. 4); Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee‘s “Despacito” (up to No. 3 this week, see below); and now Khaled’s No. 1 “One.” HustleTV
