Morgan Wallens ‘Last Night Makes a Strong Comeback to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100

“Last Night” by Morgan Wallen rises to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Songs chart. It had already been in place for four weeks when the country singer-songwriter became the list’s first leader.

The track is from Wallen’s LP One Thing at a Time, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for the fifth week.

All-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and video), radio airplay, and sales data are combined in The Hot 100. Today (April 11), all charts (dated April 15, 2023) will be updated on You can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on Twitter and Instagram for all chart news.

According to Luminate, “Last Night,” which was released on Big Loud/Mercury/Republic Records and went up 3-1 on the Hot 100, sold 10,000 downloads (up 1%), received 29.7 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 25%, good for the chart’s top Airplay Gainer award), and had 35.1 million streams (down 2%).

For the fifth week, the song is at the top of the all-genre Streaming Songs chart; after spending a week at No. 1 on Digital Song Sales, remains at No. 3; on Radio Songs, where it rises 30-21. It rises to No. 17 on the Country Airplay chart, No. 21 on the Pop Airplay chart, and No. 23 on the Adult Pop Airplay chart as a growing multi-format radio hit.

For the ninth week, “Last Night” is at the top of the Hot Country Songs chart, which follows the same methodology as the Hot 100. It became the 20th song to top both charts and the first by a solo male artist since Eddie Rabbitt’s “I Love a Rainy Night” ruled Hot Country Songs for a week in January 1981 and the Hot 100 for two weeks in February and March of that same year, more than 42 years ago.

It is the first time a song has topped both the Hot Country Songs for nine weeks and the Hot 100 for two since Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” did so in 2012, when it spent 10 and 3 weeks at No. 1, respectively. Since Glen Campbell’s “Rhinestone Cowboy,” which sold for three and two weeks, respectively, in 1975, it is the first male solo hit of this kind.

The only other songs by solo males that have topped both the Hot Country Songs chart and the Hot 100 chart for multiple weeks are: Charlie Rich’s “The Most Beautiful Girl” (1973), Bobby Goldsboro’s “Honey” (1968), Jimmy Dean’s “Big Bad John” (1961), Marty Robbins’ “El Paso” (1959-60) and Johnny Horton’s “The Battle of New Orleans” (1959).

SZA’s “Kill Bill” rises 4-2 on the Hot 100, adding an eighth week at its No 2 high. It climbs 25-8 to become her fifth top 10 on Digital Song Sales and takes top Sales Gainer honors (6,000, up 158% thanks to the 69-cent sale price in the iTunes Store).

For the 16th week in a row, both the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot R&B Songs charts are dominated by “Kill Bill.” Since the survey became an all-encompassing genre chart in 1958, it surpasses Mary J. Blige’s “Be Without You,” which spent 15 weeks at the top of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in 2006.

After eight weeks at No. 1 since its debut in January, Miley Cyrus’ “Flowers” falls to 2-3 on the Hot 100. It remains atop Radio Songs for the eighth week (102.2 million viewers, a decrease of 4%).

After reaching No. 3, “Creepin'” by Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, and 21 Savage rise 5-4 on the Hot 100; The Weeknd and Ariana Grande’s “Die for You” lifts 6-5, following a week at No. 1 in March; and after reaching No. 3, PinkPantheress and Ice Spice’s “Boy’s a Liar, Pt. 2” advances to 7-6.

Rema and Selena Gomez’s “Calm Down” climbs 8-7 for a new Hot 100 high. It remains at the top of the Billboard U.S. Afrobeats Songs chart for the 32nd week, the longest run since the list began a year ago (in collaboration with the music festival and global brand Afro Nation).

After a personal-best eight weeks at No. 1 in November and January, Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” drops 9-8 on the Hot 100. It has been in the top 10 for 23 weeks, one week less than “Shake It Off,” which was Swift’s longest stay in the region from 2014 to 2015.

The fourth week that “Players” by Coi Leray topped the multi-metric Hot Rap Songs chart has seen it rise 10-9 on the Hot 100, bringing it back to its highest position.

The Hot 100’s top 10 are rounded out by Bailey Zimmerman’s “Rock and a Hard Place,” which rises 13-10 to reclaim its best rank first reached two weeks earlier. The song topped Country Airplay for a third week, as previously reported.
