Chart Check [Hot 100]: The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ Ends Its HISTORIC Top 10 Run

Published: Tuesday 8th Dec 2020 by Rashad

It took an influx of holiday music to dim the Hot 100 shine of ‘Blinding Lights’The Weeknd‘s colossal ‘After Hours’ hit.

As we reported here, the Max Martin-produced cut was written in Billboard history books two weeks ago for becoming the longest-running top 10 hit in history when it logged 40 weeks in the tally’s topmost dectet.

Although it managed to hang on for yet another rung in the 7 days that followed, the refreshed Hot 100 shows ‘Blinding Lights’ has been booted from the chart region in what would’ve been its 42nd week.  Landing at #11, the drop marks the first time the song’s been outside of the top 10 since it first arrived there in February 2020.

Look inside to see who accompanies the 80’s-inspired bop on this week’s ‘TGJ Chart Check.’

    And what a run it WAS! 🥰 Historic, the biggest EVER *Beyonce voice* 😂 And to those Bruno fans who had SO much to say when this song was initially released…..
    Learn to BE HUMBLE lol 😎💋🤳🏽

      I love Bruno but the last album was too “Copy-cat” for me like its one thing to sample past hits but he seemingly swaggerjacked the sound and behavior past greats without a artist identify. Humbly he even mentioned recent months ago that he’s totally “uninspired” and wants to be a model for Rihanna’s Fenty Line in which I’ll be down to see lol

      • TORi December 8, 2020

        But the same could honestly be said about The Weeknd’s last album. For instance, “Blinding Lights” could easily fit into any 80’s commercial or movie. It doesn’t sound “inspired” by 80’s pop, it sound like a leftover track from the 80’s.

      I wish I was a real woman so he could give me his D every night straight after my daddy gives it to me good.

      #Bruno Mars is the KING

        Danzou # 1…I was wondering where you were. Thought I’d finally run yo ass outta town. Guess I gotta try harder 💋💋💋🖕🏻😂😂

    • Fancy BISH December 8, 2020

      And please look at the REFRESHED chart, you will see that Blinding Lights increases and jumps from #9 to #6 where it spends its 49th week inside the Top 10 on the Global Chart, again the MOST EVER *Beyonce voice* lol…HISTORIC 🤳🏽

    The Grammys should really be a damn shame of themselves for this SNUB like After Hours is great album and the singles staying power are proof of it. Smh watch Taylor leave with another damn ” Album of the Year ” yet this album came and SLAYED way before hers. Sounds just about white

        Certainly am because they won’t be getting my viewership and I’m certain they’ll lose more and hit lowest due to the pandemic and for the bs politics behind scenes with their favoritism.

    Coming back to listen to this song after all this time coupled with the Grammy and Twitter drama and I can honestly say…I dont see why people expected this to be nominated for a Grammy. Considering chart figures are added up with a number of different other figures in this day and time, having a “historic run” doesn’t mean a particular song is of any good or groundbreaking in anyway, case in point, “Blinding Lights”.

    • Fancy BISH December 8, 2020

      Oh please 🙄 This song was a TRUE favorite ❤️ of the PEOPLE in a year when an HISTORIC number of people LOST their LIVES…this song was entertaining during a global PANDEMIC, the biggest song of 2020 WORLDWIDE 🌎 Don’t come for Blinding Lights or Super Bowl Abel! FCK the SCAMMYS and their Driving Miss Daisy mentality lmaooooo 💯🤳🏽

      • TORi December 8, 2020

        …you how many people don’t even know this song exist? Or that The Weeknd even has a full length album released this year? Just because it was big within his fan base doesn’t make a favorite among the people. The song isn’t even mind-blowing or groundbreaking for you to be doing this much, hence he couldn’t score a nomination within Pop nor R&B thus throwing a public temper-tantrum because white people don’t love his pandering.

      • Fancy BISH December 8, 2020

        What are you talking about? 😂 I’m going to say this as respectful as I can…FCK racist white people lmaooooo….2043 it’s over, bye Miss Daisy lol 🤳🏽 Either shape up or ship out 💯 This song is amazing, check your taste level 🤣 Funny how you haven’t mentioned the OTHER nominees and their musical contributions lol 👀 You REALLY wanna go there? 😂

      • Fancy BISH December 8, 2020

        DEAR WHITE PEOPLE, I’m sorry for being the biggest hypocrite on this blog as I’m a racist piece of shіt and a smelly ugly cцnt but I can’t help it.
        Please forgive me,

        FANCY CLOWN xxxx

      • tyty December 8, 2020

        @tori don’t be ridiculous artists count on their fanbase for the first two weeks of a release then the rest is radio airplay and the GP streaming the song. The weekend is a huge artist. The song might not be groundbreaking but he did deserve a nomination or two. If billie eish or Justin bieber mediocre music can get Grammys nominations so can the weekend.

      • Fancy BISH December 8, 2020

        Fancy CLOWN the only big thing you have is that waistline.

      • Fancy BISH December 8, 2020

        Stay jealous and remember Clark, everytime you COME to this site, everytime you press add, you’re trying to be me 🤣 Go look in the mirror, do you like what you see lmaooooooooo 😂 Go LOOK darling lol…take a good look, single white Clark 🤣

      • Fancy BISH December 11, 2020

        I doubt anyone would be jealous of you and your clown tricks

  5. 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) December 8, 2020

    That’s what we called a monster hit💅🏿💅🏿Reminds me of Usher’s Yeah, Bruno’s uptown funk

  6. musixxman96 December 8, 2020

    Amazing! If it held on this week at 10, it would be 42 weeks at least because next week it should go back with the rosalia remix! Ah well he already broke the record – major!

    • Fancy BISH December 8, 2020

      If he goes back it still counts, do you have the tea lol ❤️ ☕️
