DJ Khaled's All-Star 'I'm the One' Debuts at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

The song, featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper & Lil Wayne, is Khaled’s first Hot 100 leader.

DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One,” featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, launches at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated May 20). The high-profile collab, released on We the Best/Def Jam/Epic Records, is the first Hot 100 leader for Khaled (who co-produced and co-wrote it and adds vocals) and Chance the Rapper, as well as the first for Quavo, of rap act Migos, as a soloist. Bieber earns his fourth No. 1 and Lil Wayne scores his third.

Bieber’s second No. 1 bow: Bieber becomes just the third artist to have debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with multiple titles. He first opened on top with his first leader, “What Do You Mean?” (Sept. 19, 2015). Carey leads with three No. 1 entrances (“Fantasy,” “One Sweet Day,” both in 1995, and “Honey,” 1997), while Britney Spears, like Bieber now, has made two such starts (“3,” in 2009, and “Hold It Against Me,” 2011).

Bieber & Lil Wayne’s latest Hot 100 leaders: Bieber and Lil Wayne are the chart-topping veterans on “One,” tallying their fourth and third Hot 100 No. 1, respectively. In addition to “One” and “Mean,” Bieber ruled in 2016 with “Sorry” and “Love Yourself.” Lil Wayne led with “Lollipop,” featuring Static Major, in 2008, and as featured on Jay Sean’s “Down,” in 2009.

Chance the Rapper achieves not only his first Hot 100 No. 1 or top 10, but even his first top 40 hit: he’d climbed to a prior No. 41 best with his first entry, 2013’s featured turn on “Confident” by… Bieber.

Bieber goes fourth: Notably, Bieber has now earned more top five Hot 100 hits after his 2015 album Purpose than he did from the set: following the LP’s No. 1s “Mean,” “Sorry” and “Love Yourself,” he’s added four top fives in featured roles, on Major Lazer’s “Cold Water” (also featuring MO; No. 2); DJ Snake’s “Let Me Love You” (No. 4); Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” (up to No. 3 this week, see below); and now Khaled’s No. 1 “One.”

Five at 1 with ‘One’: “One” marks the first Hot 100 No. 1 by five individually credited acts. Twice before, a high of four acts had shared a leader on the list, via “Give Me Everything,” by Pitbull featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer (2011), and “Lady Marmalade,” by Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya and P!nk (2001).

Summer Number ‘One’? It’s worth noting that Drake’s “One Dance,” featuring WizKid and Kyla, hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 a year ago this week (on the chart dated May 21, 2016), given that it went on to become the No. 1 song of the summer of 2016 (based on chart performance between Memorial Day and Labor Day). Could “I’m the One” similarly sizzle this summer? One major-market radio program director told Billboard that, in his opinion, it’s the “first contender” for song of the summer this year.

That’s a rap: Additionally, “One” debuts at No. 1 on both the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts. Khaled earns his second leader on each list, following “I’m on One.” Lil Wayne, meanwhile, ups his count to 10 No. 1s. Bieber, Quavo and Chance the Rapper tally their first No. 1 each on the survey.

As “One” overtakes the Hot 100 in its first week, Mars’ “Like” drops to No. 2 after a week on top. Still, it rises 2-1 on Radio Songs (172 million, up 4 percent), becoming Mars’ seventh No. 1 on the airplay chart, tying him with Usher for the most among solo males. The two equal Perry for the third-most among all artists, after Rihanna (12) and Carey (11). “Like” leads Hot R&B Songs for a 12th week.

More Bieber: Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito,” featuring Bieber, hits a new Hot 100 high, lifting 4-3. It descends to No. 2 after a week atop Digital Song Sales, but gains by 16 percent to 100,000 sold (with 70 percent of its total sales from the Bieber remix). It dips 2-3 on Streaming Songs, but similarly increases by 10 percent to 48 million. On Radio Songs, the track surges 32-18 (49 million, up 30 percent), winning the Hot 100’s top Airplay Gainer award. “Despacito” leads Hot Latin Songs for a 14th week.

Even more Bieber: He’s the first artist to place two titles in the Hot 100’s top three simultaneously since… he himself doubled up with “Love Yourself” (No. 1) and “Sorry” (No. 3) on Feb. 27, 2016.
