The Kid LAROI & Justin Bieber Extend 'Stay' Atop Hot 100, The Weeknd's 'Take My Breath' Debuts in Top 10
By Gary Trust | 8/16/2021

The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber's "Stay" spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, a week after ascending to the summit.

Olivia Rodrigo's "Good 4 U," at No. 2 on the Hot 100 after a week at No. 1, takes over as the most-heard song on U.S. airwaves, as it tops the Radio Songs chart. It also ties for the most weeks totaled in the Hot 100's runner-up spot (11), a mark first set by Whitney Houston's "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)" in 1995-96.

Plus, The Weeknd's "Take My Breath" enters the Hot 100 at No. 6, arriving as his 13th top 10.

"Stay," released July 9 on Raymond Braun/Columbia Records/Def Jam, drew 40.5 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 26%; good for top Airplay Gainer honors on the Hot 100) and 31.8 million U.S. streams (up 3%) and sold 12,700 downloads (down 12%) in the week ending Aug. 12, according to MRC Data.

The track adds a fourth week atop the Streaming Songs chart, dips 5-6 on Digital Song Sales and bounds 19-10 on Radio Songs. The Kid LAROI tallies his second Radio Songs top 10, after "Without You" hit No. 5 in May, and Bieber earns his 19th.

Olivia Rodrigo's "Good 4 U," which ruled the Hot 100 in its debut week in May, holds at No. 2 as it rises to No. 1 on Radio Songs, up 2% to 77.4 million in audience. Rodrigo claims her second Radio Songs leader, after "Drivers License" for five weeks in March and April.

"Good 4 U" logs its record-tying 11th week at No. 2 on the Hot 100, encompassing the chart's 63-year history. It matches Whitney Houston's "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)," which also debuted at No. 1 before settling in at No. 2. "Good 4 U" has ranked directly below BTS' "Butter" (for eight weeks) and "Permission to Dance" (one week) and now The Kid LAROI and Bieber's "Stay" (two weeks). "Exhale" spent all 11 of its weeks at No. 2 a spot below Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day" in 1995-96.

Songs to Spend the Most Weeks at No. 2 on the Hot 100:
11, "Good 4 U," Olivia Rodrigo, first week at No. 2: June 5, 2021
11, "Exhale (Shoop Shoop)," Whitney Houston, Dec. 2, 1995
10, "Bad Guy," Billie Eilish, June 8, 2019
10, "That's What I Like," Bruno Mars, April 1, 2017
10, "Work It," Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, Nov. 16, 2002*
10, "Freak Me," Silk, March 27, 1993
10, "Waiting for a Girl Like You," Foreigner, Nov. 28, 1981*
(*Five of the seven songs above hit No. 1 on the Hot 100; only "Work It" and "Waiting for a Girl Like You" peaked at No. 2.)

Ed Sheeran's "Bad Habits" rises to a new No. 3 Hot 100 high, from No. 5, and Doja Cat's "Kiss Me More," featuring SZA, climbs 6-4, after reaching No. 3.

Dua Lipa's "Levitating," featuring DaBaby, drops 3-5 on the Hot 100, after hitting No. 2. As for another longevity mark in the chart's upper reaches, it posts a 32nd week in the top 10, tying for the sixth-longest run in the region (and for the longest top 10 stay among songs not to reach No. 1, equaling the time spent in the tier by LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live").

Most weeks in Hot 100's top 10:
57, "Blinding Lights," The Weeknd, No. 1 peak (four weeks), beginning April 4, 2020

31, "Uptown Funk!," Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars, No. 1 (14 weeks), Jan. 17, 2015

The Weeknd's "Take My Breath" debuts at No. 6 on the Hot 100. The song, released Aug. 6, starts with 30. 7 million in radio audience, 19.3 million streams and 18,000 sold (digital and physical singles combined). It enters at No. 4 on both Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales and No. 25 on Radio Songs.

"Breath" was available for purchase in its first week as a download (discounted to 69 cents) for its original version and in extended and instrumental form, while its original mix was also available as a CD single for $1.99. Plus, six clips of the song were posted to The Weeknd's official YouTube channel in the tracking week: its official music video; official audio and lyric videos; its extended and instrumental versions; and an "XO Lens" treatment.

The Weeknd achieves his 13th Hot 100 top 10, a run that began in November 2014 with the No. 7-peaking "Love Me Harder," with Ariana Grande. "Breath" is his fourth song to debut in the top 10. BTS' "Butter" descends 4-7 after nine weeks atop the Hot 100, as it leads Digital Song Sales for an 11th week (62,900, down 20%).

Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow's "Industry Baby" slips 7-8 on the Hot 100, two weeks after launching at No. 2, and tops the multi-metric Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which use the same methodology as the Hot 100, for a third week each.

Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, Lil Nas X's former one-week No. 1 "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)" drops 8-9 and Olivia Rodrigo's "Deja Vu" backtracks 9-10, after reaching No. 3.

The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights' Spends Record-Breaking 88th Week on Billboard Hot 100
By Gary Trust | 8/16/2021

The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" logs a record-breaking 88th week on the Billboard Hot 100 (on the chart dated Aug. 21). It passes Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive," which spent 87 weeks on the survey in 2012-14.

"Blinding Lights," released on XO/Republic Records, debuted at No. 11 on the Hot 100 dated Dec. 14, 2019. The song, which ranks at No. 18 in its 88th week, hit No. 1 for its first of four weeks on top on the chart dated April 4, 2020. Over its run, it has rewritten the records for the most time spent in the Hot 100's top five (43 weeks), top 10 (57 weeks), top 20 (79 weeks) and top 40 (84 weeks).

Here's an updated look at the titles to tally the most time on the Hot 100, dating to the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception through the latest list, dated Aug. 21, 2021.

Most Weeks Spent on the Billboard Hot 100:
88 weeks, "Blinding Lights," The Weeknd, No. 1 peak (four weeks), April 4, 2020 peak date
87 weeks, "Radioactive," Imagine Dragons, No. 3, July 6, 2013
79 weeks, "Sail," AWOLNATION, No. 17, Oct. 12, 2013
76 weeks, "I'm Yours," Jason Mraz, No. 6, Sept. 20, 2008
69 weeks, "How Do I Live," LeAnn Rimes, No. 2, Dec. 13, 1997
68 weeks, "Counting Stars," OneRepublic, No. 2, Jan. 18, 2014
68 weeks, "Party Rock Anthem," LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock, No. 1 (six weeks), July 16, 2011
65 weeks, "Rolling in the Deep," Adele, No. 1 (seven weeks), May 21, 2011
65 weeks, "You Were Meant for Me"/"Foolish Games," Jewel, No. 2, April 19, 1997
64 weeks, "Before He Cheats," Carrie Underwood, No. 8, June 2, 2007

"Blinding Lights," which The Weeknd performed as the finale of his Super Bowl LV halftime show medley Feb. 7, is one of three Hot 100 No. 1s from his 2020 album After Hours.

"After Hours was always meant to be a very personal project. It's a story I had to tell," The Weeknd told Billboard after "Blinding Lights" became the first (and, so far, only) song to spend a year in the Hot 100's top 10. "The fact I've been able to tell it with the world listening is incredible."

Meanwhile, The Weeknd adds his latest Hot 100 hit, as his new single "Take My Breath" launches at No. 6 on the Aug. 21 chart, arriving as his 13th top 10.

The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights' By the Numbers: All the Stats Behind Its Record-Breaking Run
By Xander Zellner | 8/17/2021

The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" is now, officially, the longest charting hit in the Billboard Hot 100's history, as the song -- originally released in 2019 -- tallies its 88th week on the survey, dated Aug. 21, 2021.

It passes the 87-week Hot 100 run of Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" in 2012-14.

As "Blinding Lights" adds perhaps its most notable chart record yet, here's a look at its most luminous stats (as of charts dated Aug. 21, with all data through Aug. 12, according to MRC Data).

88: Record number of weeks that "Blinding Lights" has spent on the Hot 100, from its debut on the chart dated Dec. 14, 2019.

43: Record number of weeks totaled in the Hot 100's top five. It passed The Chainsmokers' "Closer," featuring Halsey, and Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You," each with 27 weeks in the tier, for the achievement.

57: Record number of weeks spent in the Hot 100's top 10, previously held by Post Malone's "Circles" (39).

79: Record number of weeks spent in the Hot 100's top 20, a mark also previously belonging to "Circles" (60).

84: Record number of weeks spent in the Hot 100's top 40, having passed "Radioactive" (63).

13: The number of U.S.-specific Billboard charts on which "Blinding Lights" has hit No. 1. It has led the all-genre Hot 100, Streaming Songs, Radio Songs and Digital Song Sales surveys; Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs and R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales; Hot R&B Songs, R&B Streaming Songs and R&B Digital Song Sales; and the Pop Airplay, Adult Pop Airplay and Adult Contemporary radio genre charts.

48: Record weeks spent at No. 1 on Hot R&B Songs, more than double the sum of three runners-up (with 20 apiece). It has also logged the most weeks in the top 10 and on the tally overall (66 each).

26: Record weeks notched atop Radio Songs. The mark had been held for over two decades by Goo Goo Dolls' "Iris" (18 weeks) in 1998.

35: Weeks spent atop Adult Contemporary, the most among solo males in the chart's 60-year history.

5,410,644,400: Total cumulative audience for "Blinding Lights" on U.S. radio.

1,270,906,753: Total on-demand U.S. streams for the song, audio and video combined.

811,500: Total U.S. downloads sold for the song.

33: "Blinding Lights" has hit No. 1 on surveys in Billboard's charts menu encompassing 33 countries. Its world domination has extended to Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and Venezuela.

LV: Super Bowl whose halftime show this Feb. 7 spotlighted The Weeknd's medley, in which "Blinding Lights" served as the finale.

1: Weeks that "Blinding Lights" has not appeared on the Hot 100 since debuting. It was not on the chart dated Jan. 2, 2021, due in large part to an influx of holiday hits. It returned the following week at No. 3, marking the highest re-entry in the chart's history.

34: The total number of Hot 100 No. 1s since "Blinding Lights" debuted on Dec. 14, 2019, in addition to the song itself, which reigned for four weeks in April and May 2020. In its debut frame, the top title was The Weeknd's own "Heartless." Since then, the songs to ascend to No. 1 have been, chronologically, Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and Post Malone's "Circles," also in 2019 …

In 2020: Roddy Ricch's "The Box"; Drake's "Toosie Slide"; The Scotts, Travis Scott and Kid Cudi's "The Scotts"; Doja Cat's "Say So," featuring Nicki Minaj; Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber's "Stuck With U"; Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage," featuring Beyoncé; Lady Gaga and Grande's "Rain on Me"; DaBaby's "Rockstar," featuring Roddy Ricch; 6ix9ine and Minaj's "Trollz"; Taylor Swift's "Cardigan"; Harry Styles' "Watermelon Sugar"; Cardi B's "WAP," featuring Megan Thee Stallion; BTS' "Dynamite"; Scott's "Franchise," featuring Young Thug and M.I.A.; Jawsh 685, Jason Derulo and BTS' "Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)"; 24kGoldn's "Mood," featuring iann dior; Grande's "Positions"; BTS' "Life Goes On"; and Swift's "Willow" …

And, in 2021, so far: Olivia Rodrigo's "Drivers License"; Drake's "What's Next"; Cardi B's "Up"; Bieber's "Peaches," featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon; Lil Nas X's "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)"; Silk Sonic's (Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak) "Leave the Door Open"; Polo G's "Rapstar"; another leader by The Weeknd: "Save Your Tears," with Grande; Rodrigo's "Good 4 U"; BTS' "Butter" and "Permission to Dance"; and current leader "Stay" by The Kid LAROI and Bieber.

Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds on The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights' Passing 'Radioactive' Hot 100 Record: 'He's a Genius'
1,218: The number of songs that have charted on the Hot 100 since "Blinding Lights" debuted.

20: The number of other songs by The Weeknd that have hit the Hot 100 since "Blinding Lights" entered the chart.

62: The number of songs sent onto the Hot 100 by Lil Baby since "Blinding Lights" debuted, the most of any artist in that timeframe.

3: The number of 2020 year-end charts that "Blinding Lights" topped, wrapping at No. 1 for the year on the Hot 100, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Pop Airplay.

3: Total Billboard Music Awards that "Blinding Lights" has won. It earned honors for top Hot 100 song, top R&B song and top radio song at the 2021 festivities. The Weeknd also won the coveted top artist trophy, among 10 total wins for the year. "Thank you to my fans, of course," he said in his acceptance speech for top artist. "I do not take this for granted."

Bonus … 1 billion times brighter than the surface of the sun: The brightest light ever recorded, created by a group of physicists from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln "by focusing a laser beam extremely intensely." (And perhaps still not a match for the continuing chart glow of "Blinding Lights.")

Arcade is still creeping up after all this time! Looking forward to seeing how far it goes. biggrin.gif

Great achievement for The Weeknd. Looks set to push that record threshold much further too.

I didn't realise KSI was even in contention to make an appearance here, big milestone for him.

no one is mentioning the record or at least huge achievement for Keith Urban/p!nk duo. It had been escaping re-current for 14 weeks (never charted higher than 52)

Feels like more of a product of country radio*'s system of glacially increasing spins for 6-12 months which allows it to exploit Billboard's tenuous rules to keep it on the chart since it's 'still growing on radio'

*most formats seem to be skirting this way lately but country is the most egregious.
