The latest Billboard charts have seen a whirlwind of fresh releases, unexpected successes, and seasonal classics, spanning a diverse range of artists from Dolly Parton to Drake.

Jack Harlow secures his third No. 1 single on the Hot 100 with “Lovin on Me,” which cleverly samples the 1995 R&B track “Whatever.” This track swiftly replaced Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer,” which had debuted at No. 1 the previous week but now sits at No. 2. Bolstered by nearly 24 million streams and 21 million radio impressions, “Lovin on Me” quickly gained traction, owing much of its success to its impact on TikTok, where Harlow teased the song before its official release on Nov. 10. Harlow had earlier topped the charts with “First Class,” which also incorporated elements from Fergie’s “Glamorous.”

Having made his mark as a solo artist with his album “Jackman,” which debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 in May, Harlow hinted at more music in the pipeline through an Instagram post, signaling forthcoming releases.

As December approaches, holiday-themed singles are making a resurgence on the charts. Mariah Carey’s perennial favorite, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” lands at No. 4, amassing 22 million streams and 16 million airplay impressions. Concurrently, Carey is touring with her “Merry Christmas One and All!” North American tour, set to conclude at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 17. Brenda Lee’s “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” also rejoins the top 10 at No. 8.

Towards the tail end of the Hot 100’s top 10, newcomers Tate McRae and Tyla make their mark. McRae’s “Greedy” rises to No. 7 just ahead of the release of her second LP, “Think Later,” scheduled for Dec. 8. Tyla’s “Water,” recognized with a Grammy nomination, climbs to No. 10, marking her first Hot 100 Top 10 entry.

On the Billboard 200, Drake’s “For All The Dogs” reclaims the top spot following the release of its deluxe edition, moving the equivalent of 145,000 albums in the United States. Swift’s “1989” trails closely at No. 2, achieving her highest entry on the Billboard 200. Dolly Parton’s “Rockstar,” featuring a star-studded lineup including Brandi Carlile, Pink, Lizzo, and more, secures the No. 3 position.

Another notable entry in the top 10 albums chart is Enhypen’s “Orange Blood,” debuting at No. 4 with 90,000 units sold, primarily driven by collectible CD sales and streaming. The K-pop group, formed in 2020 through the reality show “I-LAND,” now boasts three primarily Korean-language albums in the top 10 of the Billboard 200, solidifying their presence in the industry.
