"Girls Like You" debuted at number 94 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and ascended to number four following its first full week of tracking after the music video's arrival. The single made the fourth-biggest jump (90 positions) in the Hot 100's history, and became Maroon 5's 14th and Cardi B's sixth top-ten single overall. After spending six weeks at number two behind Drake's "In My Feelings", "Girls Like You" reached number one on its 17th charting week, becoming Maroon 5's fourth chart topper–their first since 2012's "One More Night"–and Cardi B's third. Cardi extended her record for most number ones among female rappers. "Girls Like You" became the first pop song to lead the chart after the record run of 34 consecutive weeks that rap songs had ruled the Hot 100. Maroon 5 became the duo or group with the most Hot 100 number ones in the 2000s and 2010s. The fourth week atop the Hot 100 for the single made Cardi the female rapper with the most cumulative weeks atop the chart, with eight weeks.
With "Girls Like You" following "I Like It" at the top of Radio Songs, Cardi B became the first female rapper to ever replace herself at number one on that chart. With the single, Maroon 5 scored its record-extending 13th number one on the Adult Top 40 radio airplay chart. It also became the 10th song by a duo or group to top Radio Songs for at least 10 weeks since that chart launched in 1990, and the longest-leading number one on that chart by a duo or group this century.
