Dua Lipa Breaks Adele Hot 100 Record As ‘Levitating’ Nabs 22nd Week in Top 10

Published: Wednesday 9th Jun 2021 by Rashad

As we reported here, Dua Lipa – thanks to her enduring ‘Future Nostalgia’ smash ‘Levitating’ – was set to ascend into Billboard Hot 100 history books because the song had nabbed its whopping 20th week inside the top 10.  By doing so, it entered a historic tie with Adele and Leona Lewis for longest-running top 10 single by a British female act at the time.

Fast forward two weeks, Lipa not only broke the tie but has now extended her run – creating further distance between herself and the previous record holders.

Details inside:

Before last week’s chart printing, ‘Levitating’ was in a five-way tie for the title of longest-running top 10 hit by a British female with Lipa’s other ‘Nostalgia’ hit ‘Don’t Start Now,’ Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Rolling in the Deep,’ and Lewis’ signature tune, ‘Bleeding Love’ (all of which boasted 20 weeks in the top 10).

Officially breaking that tie last week,  ‘Levitating’ – found at #3 on the updated Hot 100 (as we reported here) – lodged its 22nd run in the top 10, meaning it’s held tenancy in the chart region longer than any other top 10 hit by a British female artist in the tally’s 62-year history.

Supported by enduring streaming, digital sales, and radio airplay figures, it doesn’t look like ‘Levitating’ will be descending out of the top 10 any time soon.
