We’re counting down the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending February 13, 2016.
This week’s chart offers yet another new title in the number five position…We could get used to this!
Number 5: Flo Rida «My House»
Flo Rida returns to the hit list, as “My House” surges seven slots to fifth place.
This Florida native – real name Tramar Dillard – has been a regular hit-making machine over the past nine years. “My House” is his 14th Top 20 single, and his seventh to hit the Top Five. April finds him at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, with an eight-date mini-tour of Germany falling in early June.
Number 4: Adele » Hello»
Adele continues her downward trend, as “Hello” slips a slot to fourth place. The song spent 10 weeks at number one. It’s now past the eight-million-seller mark in the United States and…as if we needed another reminder of her popularity…she’s been officially declared the best-selling artist of 2015. That honor comes from the IFPI – the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.

Number 1: Justin Bieber «Love Yourself»
