Even a higher power taking ahold couldn’t keep Drake’s “One Dance” at the top of the Hot 100 for a tenth consecutive week: Billboard reports that the rapper’s West Indian–inflected hit has been unseated in the No. 1 spot by Sia and Sean Paul’s “Cheap Thrills,” which features heavy dancehall vibes of its own. “Cheap Thrills” is Sia’s first No. 1 single as an artist; as a writer, the Australian musician hit No. 1 in 2012 with Rihanna’s “Diamonds.” It’s also the first time a woman over 40 has occupied the top spot on the charts since Madonna’s “Music” in 2000. Elsewhere in the top 10, “One Dance” drops to No. 2, while Calvin Harris’s collaboration with the newly unmasked Taylor Swift, “This Is What You Came For,” climbs to No. 3. Finally, a reason for Swift to leave the house!
