Kendrick Lamar scores his fifth No. 1 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks as “Humble” storms in atop the chart dated April 15, knocking his own “The Heart Part 4” from the summit. With the new No. 1, he becomes the fourth act to succeed himself at the top, following Zayn (who completed the feat twice), Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran.

In addition to “Heart,” Lamar previously reigned on Top Tracks with “I” (one week in 2014) and his featured turns on Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” (three weeks in 2015) and Maroon 5’s “Don’t Wanna Know” (one week in 2016).

Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks is a weekly ranking of the most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the U.S., ranked by the volume of shares over a seven-day period (Monday to Sunday).

“Humble” and its accompanying music video premiered on March 30, and the clip has soared to more than 33.1 million global views on YouTube through April 4.

The release of two new tracks within the past two weeks had lead to speculation over an impending new album from the rapper. He ended “Heart” with the prophetic line – “Y’all got ’til April the 7th to get y’all sh*t together,” which some interpreted as a possible release date for his fourth studio set. However, on Apr. 6, an iTunes page for a new Kendrick album — titled, at least tentatively, as ALBUM — appeared, with Apr. 14 listed as the expected release date.

One last note on “Heart”: Though the song departs the Top Tracks peak, dipping 1-16, it arrives on other Billboard surveys, including a No. 11 start on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and a No. 22 debut on the Billboard Hot 100.

Also in the top five on Top Tracks, Cheat Codes makes its chart debut as “No Promises,” featuring Demi Lovato, arrives at No. 4. With the debut, Lovato earns her seventh top 10 hit and the first since “Body Say” last August. Cheat Codes posted the song’s official audio clip to their YouTube channel on March 30; the clip has climbed to 465,000 global clicks.

Joining the above cuts in the top 10 is The Chainsmokers‘ “The One,” which zooms to a No. 10 debut. The duo posted the song — the first track on their first-full length album Memories: Do Not Open, arriving April 7 — on Facebook on March 27. The clip has 1.9 million views on Facebook, and more than 10.5 million global plays on Spotify through April 6.

“The One” is the fifth top 10 hit for the EDM pair on the Top Tracks chart, following “Closer,” featuring Halsey (No. 1 for one week), “All We Know,” featuring Phoebe Ryan (No. 4), “Paris” (No. 5) and “Something Just Like This,” with Coldplay (No. 10).

Just underneath “The One,” Selena Gomez sprints to a No. 11 entrance on Top Tracks with “Only You,” from the soundtrack to the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, which she co-executive produced. The tune is a cover of Yaz’s 1982 song, which reached No. 67 on the Hot 100.

Gomez’s official YouTube audio for “You,” released March 30, has clocked more than 4.2 million global plays. “You” continues a busy week on the charts for the pop singer, as her collaboration with Kygo on “It Ain’t Me” jumps 19-14 on Top Tracks and completes an identical five-spot rise (from 20-15) on the Hot 100.
