Hot 100: The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ is Now the LONGEST-RUNNING Top 10 Hit in History

Published: Monday 23rd Nov 2020 by Rashad

The Weeknd‘s colossal hit, ‘Blinding Lights,’ has outshone the competition once again.

See how inside:

‘Blinding Lights,’ the fifth Hot 100 chart-topper of The Weeknd’s career (second from the ‘After Hours’ era alone), made headlines last week when it tied the all-time record for most weeks in the tally’s top 10 (click here to read more).

Already owning the title for longest-running top 5 in the hitlist’s 62-year history (click here to read more), the Max Martin-made bop only needed one more week to be etched as the chart’s longest-running top 10 hit.

Thanks to a handsome mix of digital downloads, streams, and radio airplay, the refreshed chart reveals ‘Lights’ has powered to the historic position.

To add, Billboard reports:

“The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” backtracks 5-7 on the Hot 100, after spending four weeks at No. 1. It banks a record 40th week in the top 10, breaking a tie with Post Malone’s “Circles” for the top total in the chart’s archives.
