On this week's chart, "High Hopes" by Panic! at the Disco skips to the number one spot, up one spot from number two. In its lucky thirteenth week on the chart, "High Hopes" benefits from leading the total radio charts and an uncanny boost in streaming numbers thanks to year-end countdowns to heights the song had never hit. With the strong showing in streaming to go along with its radio, "High Hopes" balances out its chart points over last weeks leader, Halsey's "Without Me". This week posts a tight margin between the numbers one, two, and even three positions. With "High Hopes" hitting number one, it is the fourth pop song in a row, after "Happier", "thank u, next", and "Without Me", the first group to lead the chart since Maroon 5 to lead the chart, and move into second place for the longest climb to the top after debuting all the way down at number twenty nine ("Drip Too Hard" by Lil Baby and Gunna debuted at number thirty and then moved to the top of the chart in the coming weeks). Just two weeks ago, it looked as though the song would stall and peak at number three; however, after the substantial increase in streams "High Hopes" takes the throne at last and helps pops continued rise to the top of the chart. While "High Hopes" does supplant Halsey's two week leader "Without Me" Halsey moves into the top ten finally with "Eastside" up one tick from number six in its twenty-third week.
