“Flowers” retains its dominance in terms of streaming and sales. In addition, David Guetta and Bebe Rexha’s “I’m Good (Blue)” became the most-heard song on radio.

Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” remains at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, reigning for the second week in a row, as it maintains its supremacy in both streaming and sales.

Meanwhile, David Guetta and Bebe Rexha’s “I’m Good (Blue),” which reaches No. 6 on the Hot 100, becomes the most-heard song on radio, topping the Radio Songs chart, while JVKE achieves his first Hot 100 top 10 with “Golden Hour,” which moves from No. 11 to No. 10.

The Hot 100 combines all-genre streaming (official audio and video), radio airplay, and sales data in the United States. On Billboard.com, all charts (dated February 4, 2023) will be updated tomorrow (Jan. 31). On Twitter and Instagram, you may follow @billboard and @billboardcharts for all chart news.

According to Luminate, “Flowers” had 59.8 million streams (up 14%, earning the Hot 100’s top Streaming Gainer title) and 40.8 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 22%) in its second full tracking week, Jan. 20-26, and sold 65,000 (down 6%). (after it arrived Jan. 12 at 7 p.m. EST).

The song enjoys a second week at the top of the Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales charts, while it jumps 18-11 on the Radio Songs list.

Cyrus initially revealed the release date of “Flowers” on her Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party NBC special on January 13, which fans recognized as her ex-husband Liam Hemsworth’s birthday. That story and discussion on TikTok have helped raise the song’s prominence ahead of the release of Cyrus’ eighth studio album, Endless Summer Vacation, on March 10.

“Flowers” is the highest weekly streaming total since Drake’s “Way 2 Sexy,” featuring Future and Young Thug, which tallied 67.3 million (Sept. 18, 2021).

“Flowers” is also the first song to have 50 million or more streams in two weeks in two years, when Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” debuted with 76.1 million and was followed by 59.7 million (Jan. 23, 30, 2021).

Furthermore, with its climb from 52.6 million to 59.7 million weekly streams, “Flowers” is the only song in almost three years to post at least 50 million streams in a week and gain the following frame, since Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” increased from 68.2 million to 77.2 million (Jan. 18, 25, 2020).

Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” returns to No. 3 on the Hot 100 after a personal-best eight weeks at the top; Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, and 21 Savage’s “Creepin'” maintains its No. 4 high while winning the chart’s top Airplay Gainer trophy (67.2 million, up 16%); and Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ “Unholy” remains at No. 5, after ruling for a week in October.

“I’m Good (Blue)” by David Guetta and Bebe Rexha remains at No. 6 on the Hot 100 after peaking at No. 4, while rising to No. 1 on Radio Songs (85 million, up 2%). After “Meant To Be,” with Florida Georgia Line, reigned for five weeks in 2018, Guetta achieves his first Radio Songs leader (among seven top tens), while Rexha earns her second (among four top tens). (Eiffel 65’s “Blue [Da Ba Dee],” which “I’m Good” heavily interpolates, reached No. 6 on Radio Songs in 2000.)

“I’m Good” continues to top the Pop Airplay chart and rises to No. 1 on Adult Pop Airplay, becoming Guetta’s first and Rexha’s second (after “Meant To Be”). For the 19th week in a row, “I’m Good” tops the multi-metric Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart.

The Weeknd’s “Die for You” remains at No. 7 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 6; Drake and 21 Savage’s “Rich Flex” remains at No. 8, after reaching No. 2, as it tops the multi-metric Hot Rap Songs chart for an 11th week; and Harry Styles’ “As It Was” rebounds 10-9 on the Hot 100, after spending 15 weeks at No. 1 beginning last April, the chart’s fourth-longest reign.

JVKE rounds out the top tier of the Hot 100 with his first top 10 entry, “Golden Hour,” which jumps 11-10 with 29.1 million in radio reach (up 4%), 14 million streaming (basically flat week-over-week), and 2,000 sales (up 2%).

The song, which was released on JVKE’s namesake indie label, is being marketed by Sony Music Entertainment’s AWAL label, which is making its debut on the Hot 100. AWAL previously peaked at No. 27 with Lauv’s “I Like Me Better” in 2018.

“Golden Hour” also becomes Rhode Island native JVKE’s (born Jake Lawson) first top 10 on the Pop Airplay list, owing in part to momentum on TikTok (11-10). It’s his second chart entry, after “This Is What Falling in Love Feels Like” at No. 35 last July.

(Little state, huge hits: Bill Conti, whose Rocky theme song “Gonna Fly Now” topped the Hot 100 for a week in 1977; John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, whose “On the Dark Side,” from the film Eddie and the Cruisers, rose to No. 7 in 1984; and Blu Cantrell, whose “Hit ‘Em Up Style [Oops!]” reached No. 2 in 2001, are among the other acts with Rhode Island roots to achieve chart success.
