If anyone in the world knows the answer to this then they will inhabit this forum.

What is the highest number of number 1 hits in a chart?

That is past, present and future number 1s on the chart.

I am guessing it will be late 90s, early 2000s , or a period when the chart didnt move much.

If anyone knows i would be grateful to know the answer.

I'm sure I've seen this question answered here before, but it may have been top 40 or 75 only (I'm guessing you mean top 100), and it probably wouldn't be easy to find, so I had a look myself. The highest I can see is W/E 10/01/2015, with 33:

1 1 4 1 UPTOWN FUNK MARK RONSON FT BRUNO MARS
3 3 28 1 THINKING OUT LOUD ED SHEERAN
4 2 3 1 SOMETHING I NEED BEN HAENOW
7 7 18 1 ALL ABOUT THAT BASS MEGHAN TRAINOR
8 8 6 1 THESE DAYS TAKE THAT
12 11 15 1 BANG BANG JESSIE J/GRANDE/MINAJ
23 22 33 1 STAY WITH ME SAM SMITH
27 27 31 1 SING ED SHEERAN
28 50 50 1 RATHER BE CLEAN BANDIT FT JESS GLYNNE
29 32 17 1 BLAME CALVIN HARRIS FT JOHN NEWMAN
30 30 30 1 GHOST ELLA HENDERSON
32 39 37 1 WAVES MR PROBZ
33 53 16 1 CHANGING SIGMA FT PALOMA FAITH
34 51 58 1 HAPPY PHARRELL WILLIAMS
39 55 19 1 PRAYER IN C LILLY WOOD & ROBIN SCHULZ

84 Re 18 1 ME AND MY BROKEN HEART RIXTON
90 Re 30 1 NOBODY TO LOVE SIGMA
91 Re 23 1 I WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN RITA ORA
94 Re 66 1 WAKE ME UP AVICII

All those are past (or current) #1s, with no future ones (though several future #2s).

By my count, these are the numbers of #1s (past, present and future) in each week's chart from 1990 until a few weeks ago (using the charts from the OCC's site, so that's top 100 for all except top 75 for a period in 1991-1994). This is not 100% accurate because of the potential for songs that changed credits - for example, 'Cheerleader' only started crediting the remix the week it hit #1, so as far as my calculations are concerned, 'Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)' is a #1 and 'Cheerleader' is not, which is obviously nonsensical but that's how the data I have is formatted. Still, even if a few of the numbers should be perhaps 1 or 2 higher, you can see clear patterns with the early '00s, digital sales, and the addition of streaming - it seems this was generally highest in Q3 of 2014, when streaming was present but weekly #1 debuts were still common. Then I suppose the slow turnover of #1s in 2016 dragged it down and so did ACR from 2017 onwards.

Great work. Many thanks.

For a spell in 1991 the current number 1 was the only disc in the entire chart to reach the summit.

Nowadays of course popular songs hang around the lower reaches of the charts much longer.

It would be interesting to see a comparison with the album chart, where some chart for hundreds of weeks and reenter dozens of times.
