This is the Top Five Countdown! We're punching up the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending Jan. 27, 2018.
Some songs crawl up the chart while others fly … this week we meet one of the latter.
Number 5: G-Eazy Featuring A$AP Rocky and Cardi B. "No Limit"
G-Eazy spends another week in fifth place with "No Limit" featuring A$AP Rocky and Cardi B. Cardi just moved past Beyonce to become the first woman to place five songs simultaneously in the Billboard Hot R & B/Hip Hop Songs chart. The only others to have done this are her fellow rappers Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Congrats, Cardi B!
Number 4: Post Malone Featuring 21 Savage "Rockstar"
Post Malone and 21 Savage take another step back this week, as "Rockstar" drops to fourth place. Post's star burns so brightly that he made it into Forbes magazine's list of Future Moguls Hip-Hop Class of 2018. He dropped two of the five most popular hip-hop songs of 2017.
Number 3: Bruno Mars & Cardi B. "Finesse"

Replacing Post in third place is the red-hot duo of Bruno Mars and Cardi B, with their remix of "Finesse." This marks Bruno's 14th trip to the Top Five in the past eight years. Bruno currently rules the Billboard Hot Tours list, as his 24K Magic World Tour zooms past $200 million in earnings.
Number 2: Camila Cabello Featuring Young Thug "Havana"
Camila Cabello and Young Thug hang on to the runner-up slot with "Havana," but over on the Billboard Pop Albums list, it's another story: Camila opens at No. 1 with her self-titled debut solo album. She's the first woman to start at No. 1 with a debut full-length album in three years. Meghan Trainor last did it in January 2015 with Title.
Number 1: Ed Sheeran "Perfect"
"Perfect" is the title of our No. 1 song, as Ed Sheeran retains the Hot 100 championship for a sixth week.
On January 20, Ed announced his engagement to long-time girlfriend Cherry Seaborn. He told the Daily Star that he intends to retire from music as soon as he becomes a father.
Ed, I'm sure your fans are rooting for you, but give us a few more hits, OK?
Thanks for joining us today. We'll see you next week with a new lineup.
