‘Break My Heart’ hitmaker Dua Lipa was a week away from breaking a seemingly untouchable record on the Hot 100.
The aggressive push around her sophomore album, ‘Future Nostalgia,’ may have calmed in the last three months after its surprisingly soft opening (as we reported here), but – much like the set’s buoyancy on the Billboard 200’s top 25 – its singles ‘Heart’ and ‘Don’t Start Now’ have been mainstays in the Hot 100’s upper rankings.
The latter hopped into the tally’s top 10 the second week of February and remained there for a whopping 20 weeks. Tying fellow Brit beauty Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Rolling In The Deep’ (both songs spent 20 weeks in the Hot 100’s top 10 each), Lipa’s ‘Start’ was one week shy of snatching the title of “longest-running top 10 by a British female act.”
The refreshed chart, unveiled Tuesday (June 23), revealed the song had slipped out of the top 10 – thereby leaving the record unbroken. Landing at #14 after the impressive run, look inside to see who joins her in the top 25 on the new ‘TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100.’
