Cardi B

“Girls Like You” tops the Radio Songs chart for an 11th week, with 125.9 million in audience, down 2 percent, in the week ending October 7, according to Nielsen Music.

The track ties The Chainsmokers‘ “Closer,” featuring Halsey, in 2016, as the longest-leading Radio Songs No. 1 by a duo or group this century; it boasts the longest reign by a duo or group since TLC‘s “No Scrubs” led for 13 weeks in 1999.

“Girls Like You” has logged the longest run atop the chart by any act since Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You,” which spent 12 weeks at No. 1 in 2017 (and which interpolates “Scrubs“). (Goo Goo Dolls‘ “Iris” holds the longevity record atop Radio Songs among all acts, with 18 weeks at No. 1 in 1998.)

Next week, Metallica, a legit arena-level act, will play the far more intimate Hollywood Palladium (capacity 3,700) to inaugurate “Citi Sound Vault,” Citi‘s new live music initiative in conjunction with Live Nation whereby card holders can obtain tickets to see major acts play smaller venues.

Coinciding with Grammy week, Metallica will join The Chainsmokers, Beck and Sting as acts set to play between February 8-12 with tickets going on sell already, exclusively to Citi credit or debit card users via Live Nation’s website.

The shows are as follows:

Sting, February 8 -9

“For nearly a decade, Citi has been providing our cardmembers with incredible access to entertainment,” said Jennifer Breithaupt, managing director, media, advertising and global entertainment for Citi, in a statement. “Now we’re excited to take it to the next level to bring cardmembers true once-in-a-lifetime experiences with some of the world’s biggest artists.
