Bruno Mars' latest single "That's What I Like" has been eyeing the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for several weeks as Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" held on with Kendrick Lamar's "Humble" dethroning Sheeran in the previous tracking week. Reflected on the May 2 chart updates, "That's What I Like" finally reaches the top spot on the Hot 100 after 15 weeks on the tally.
"That's What I Like" moves from No. 3 to No. 1 as it remains the second most downloaded song on Digital Songs selling 78,000 copies. It also holds on at No. 2 on Radio Songs with 165 million impressions in an all-genre format. The track increased in airplay which is tracked Monday through Sunday by 3 percent. On Streaming Songs, the track inches up one position to No. 5 having 39 million listens thanks to remixes released via YouTube.
"That's What I Like" is Mars' seventh Hot 100 leader after scoring his first exactly seven years ago. Mars was featured on B.o.B.'s "Nothin' on You" in 2010. In this decade, Mars has the most No. 1 hits for a male artist and is only two away from tying Rihanna and Katy Perry who each have nine overall. Overall, Mars is halfway to overtaking Michael Jackson's 13 No. 1s for a solo male artist.
The Hot 100 songs chart is comprised of sales, streaming and airplay data, the former two being tracked Friday through Thursday.
