Every Friday to Thursday, the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart monitors the most well-liked songs by considering their sales, online streams (audio and video), and radio airplay.


The following is a weekly updated list of songs of 2023 featuring every chart-topping hit.


  • SZA, "Kill Bill"



SZA's "Kill Bill" held the top spot for seven days, starting from April 2.


SZA has achieved her first chart-topping success with the track that had previously spent eight weeks at the second position. The remix version of the song, featuring Doja Cat, helped it climb to the number-one spot.

Her chart-topping album "SOS," which received critical acclaim, features the hit.


  • Jimin, "Like Crazy"


One week in the top spot from April 8. Also Trending on Gold Derby. 


Previously a member of the boy band BTS, Jimin has achieved his first solo number-one single. He is also the inaugural South Korean solo artist to attain a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100.


  • Morgan Wallen, "Last Night"


The song remained on top for six weeks, including March 18, April 15 to April 22, and May 6 to May 20.


Wallen's first number-one single coincided with the release of his album "One Thing at a Time," which also debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.


Eddie Rabbitt's "I Love a Rainy Night" in 1981 it is initial time a solo male artist achieved the top spot on the country music charts.


  • The Weeknd and Ariana Grande's "Die for You (Remix)"


Holding the top spot for a week, starting on March 11.


"Die for You" was initially recorded for The Weeknd's "Starboy" album several years ago. However, it gained renewed popularity in 2022 and 2023, mainly due to its widespread presence on social media.


It quickly climbed to the chart's peak after recording a fresh remix with Ariana Grande. For both artists, this marks their seventh chart-topping hit and their second time achieving this feat as a duet, with their previous collaboration being "Save Your Tears (Remix)."


  • Miley Cyrus, "Flowers"


The song held the number-one position for eight weeks, from January 28 to March 4 and from March 25 to April 1."


On the chart dated January 28, Miley Cyrus' "Flowers" debuted at number one, marking her second chart-topping hit almost a decade after "Wrecking Ball" secured the top spot in 2013.


The longest-running chart-topper of Cyrus's eighth studio album "Endless Summeit'sacation" is it's lead single 


  • Taylor Swift, "Anti-Hero"


From January 14 to January 21 in 2023, it held the number-one spot for two weeks out of a total of 8 weeks.


In 2022, Swift's ninth song to reach the top of the charts debuted at number one and held its position for six consecutive weeks. However, it eventually fell from the top when Mariah Carey's popular holiday hit, "All I Want for Christmas Is You," took over.


After the holiday season ended, "Anti-Hero" reclaimed the top spot and remained Taylor Swift's chart-topping hit for the most extended period.


  • Mariah Carey, "All I Want for Christmas Is You"


From January 7, the song spent 12 weeks on the chart, with one of those weeks at number one in 2023.


Carey's Christmas classic, first released in 1994, achieved the top spot in 2019 and has remained a holiday chart-topper ever since, accumulating 12 weeks at number one (to date).


She achieved her 19th top spot on the Hot 100, furthering her lead as the solo artist with the most number-one hits and bringing her closer to the record of 20 number-one singles currently held by The Beatles.


Since 1958, the Billboard Hot 100 has been tracking the most famous music, starting with "Poor Little Fool" by Ricky Nelson. Over 1,000 songs have since topped the chart, but the methodology used by Billboard has changed over time to keep up with the evolving music industry and technology.


Nielsen used to track sales from Monday to Sunday, but in 2015 they changed it to Friday to Thursday. During the early years of the charts, sales held more significance than radio airplay due to the prevalence of single purchases, which has since decreased in recent times.


In 1998, Billboard revised its regulations again, permitting a song to feature on the Hot 100 chart despite being solely available for airplay and not for sale. In 2007, Billboard began incorporating audio streaming data into the Hot 100 rankings, while YouTube video streams were included in the formula in 2013.


With 20 different chart toppers, The Beatles have set the record for the highest number-one hits. Mariah Carey closely trails behind The Beatles with 19 number-one songs. In 1995, Carey's duet with Boyz II Men, "One Sweet Day," broke the record for the most weeks at number one with 16.


It held its position for over 20 years until it was equaled by "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber in 2017. However, it was eventually surpassed by Lil Nas X, whose "Old Town Road," featuring Billy Ray Cyrus reigned supreme on the charts for 19 weeks in 2019.


The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" was crowned by Billboard as the greatest song of all time, despite only holding the number-one spot for four weeks. However, it shattered the record for the most weeks spent in the top 10, remaining in that elite tier for over a year.
