The Weeknd‘s “Blinding Lights” has become the first single to spend a full year in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track dropped in November 2019 and has managed its 52nd consecutive week in the list as it charted at number three.
Post Malone previously held the record for having a song in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart consecutively for the longest, when his song “Circles” was there for 39 weeks.
“Blinding Lights” has been in the Top 10 for 65 weeks overall and is on its way to break Imagine Dragons’ record of their song “Radioactive” which spent 87 weeks in the Hot 100 from 2012 through 2014.
“Blinding Lights” also previously broke the record for the longest time spent in the top five. It has been in the top five in the chart – which began in August 1958 – for the past 43 weeks.
