Hot 100: The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ Blasts To Top 10 Glory

Published: Monday 24th Feb 2020 by Rashad

The Weeknd may have suffered the biggest fall from #1 in Hot 100 history when his hit single, ‘Heartless,’ dropped to #17 after reigning atop the tally for just one week, but its follow-up – ‘Blinding Lights’ – continues to shine on the chart.

Aided by exposure afforded from a global Mercedes Benz campaign for which the singer – born Abel Tesfaye – serves as creative director (click here to read more), the Max Martin-produced jam was formerly lifted a #11 peak on the singles chart once its cinematic video made its premiere.

Now, with excitement building for its recently announced parent album, ‘After Hours’ (click here to read more), sales and streaming tallies have seen reawakened interest in the cut.  So much so, it’s been lifted to a new Hot 100 summit.

Details inside:

Billboard reports:

“…The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” lifts 12-10. It also ranks at No. 10 on Streaming Songs (19.4 million, up 11%). The Weeknd achieves his 10th Hot 100 top 10 and second from his album After Hours, due March 20, after “Heartless” topped the chart dated Dec. 14, becoming his fourth No. 1.”


‘Blinding’ isn’t the only Weeknd tune enjoying a resurgence thanks to his recently announced LP.  Its forerunner, ‘Heartless,’ jumped up to #14 on this week’s chart.

Elsewhere on the tally, Justin Bieber – like Tesfaye – also cracked the refreshed Hot 100’s top 10.  Click here to read more.
