Ahead of his epic Super Bowl LV performance (click here to watch), The Weeknd was already scribbled in Hot 100 history books for the ongoing success of his 2019 ‘After Hours’ hit, ‘Blinding Lights,’ which is listed as the longest-running top 5 and longest-running top 10 hit ever.
Nearly three weeks after scoring a critical touchdown at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, the singer (born Abel Tesfaye) is enjoying continued gains on the streaming and digital download front of the songs he perormed that night.
In addition to watching his tune, ‘Save Your Tears,’ rocket into the Hot 100 top 5 for the first time (marking his third ‘After Hours’ song to reach the chart region), Tesfaye’s learned ‘Lights’ – at #4 on the refreshed tally – is shining in the top 10 for its 50th week.
It not only extends his record for longest-running top 10 (and top 5) hit, but also comes as the first time any artist has enjoyed as lengthy of a run inside the tally’s topmost dectet with one song.
Hop in to see who joins him on this week’s ‘TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100.’
