On Monday, Feb. 15, Justin Bieber took home his first Grammy Award with Skrillex and Diplo and the following day (Feb. 16), his latest single "Love Yourself" returned to the top of the bow down songs chart. Rising from No. 2 to No. 1 in a second non-consecutive week, "Love Yourself" reclaims the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 while last week's previous No. 1 song slides down towards leaving the top 10.
Bieber's "Love Yourself" moves back up with strong activity on the components of the chart. On Digital Songs, "Love Yourself" moves up a slot to No. 4. The third No. 1 for the young star moved a total of 101,000 digital downloads. Over on Radio Songs, Bieber scores his second No. 1 on the chart with 144 million radio impressions across the United States in all genres. The song continues to rise on Streaming Songs as well, inching towards to the top at No. 2 having 17.1 million streams.
"Love Yourself" spent one week at No. 1 after replacing Bieber's own "Sorry" followed by Zayn Malik's debut single entering the chart at No. 1. "Pillowtalk" became the 25th song in the Hot 100 history to debut at the peak of the chart. The song debuted at the top with 267,000 digital downloads. On the Tuesday chart refresh, "Pillowtalk" drops significantly to No. 7, selling only 86,000 downloads. His lead single also dropped from No. 1 to No. 3 on Streaming Songs with 16.9 million streams. While radio airplay increased, it's not significant enough to make a difference in his ranking on the songs chart, having 29 million impressions nationwide.
Though Justin Bieber has returned to the top of the Hot 100, another song is closing in the gap gaining speed week after week. Twenty One Pilots and their nostalgic "Stressed Out" rose two spots to No. 2. On Radio Songs, it picked up with 141 million impressions, rising 3-2 while also moving to No. 3 on Digital Songs. The single sold 102,000 downloads over the previous week, tracking week ending on Thurs., Feb. 11. "Stressed" slipped a couple notches to No. 6 on Streaming Songs but it did however see an increase in activity with 13.5 million streams. The hit also spends its eighth week at No. 1 on Hot Rock Songs, using the same formula as the Hot 100 but in its respective genre.
With a win and a performance by Justin Bieber at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, he is likely to spend another week at No. 1 before Twenty One Pilots gives a serious run for the most popular song in the country. Award ceremonies tend to give artists a bump in sales and activity, almost securing a third week reigning king.
