The Billboard Hot 100 is officially “Drunk in Love.”

Fueled by significant gains in streams, on-demand plays and digital sales, the Beyonce single (which features husband Jay-Z) catapults eleven places to number two on the definitive weekly singles chart. Only Katy Perry’s smash “Dark Horse (featuring Juicy J),” which began its reign atop the chart last week, ranks higher.

In reaching number two, “Drunk” becomes Beyonce’s biggest hit since “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).” Best known for its iconic video (and Kanye West’s fondness for the video), “Ladies” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in late 2008.

Since then, only 2009′s “Halo” (#5) and “Sweet Dreams” (#10) and 2010′s “Telephone” (the Lady Gaga track on which Beyonce was featured, #3) have even reached the top ten.

The rise of “Drunk in Love” sends Pitbull’s “Timber (featuring Ke$ha)” down to number three. Jason DeRulo’s “Talk Dirty” ascends to #4, while OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars” slips to 5.

Passenger’s “Let Her Go” returns to its #6 peak, while A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera’s “Say Something” settles for #7.

Positioned at number eight, Pharrell’s “Happy” leads Lorde’s pair of “Royals” (#9) and “Team” (#10).
