Dua Lipa’s ‘Levitating’ One Week Shy of Tying All-Time Hot 100 Top 10 Record Among Women

Published: Tuesday 10th Aug 2021 by Rashad

Over its 63-year history, only 11 songs can boast spending at least 31 weeks in the Hot 100’s top 10.  Before this week, only one boasted a female lead – Country star Leann Rimes‘ gargantuan 1997 hit, ‘How Do I Live.’

That changed this week, however, after Dua Lipa‘s ‘Levitating’ rose into the ranks.

Already the longest-running Hot 100 top 10 hit by a female act born outside of the United States, ‘Levitating’ – which landed at #3 on this week’s refreshed tally – logged its 31st week in the chart region.  Becoming the second female-led song to spend as much time in the chart’s topmost dectet of positions, ‘Levitating’ ties Rimes’ nearly 25-year old record (among females)

Among all acts, however, ‘Levitating’ has quite a way to go as the all-time record owner – The Weeknd‘s ‘Blinding Lights’lodged 57 weeks in the chart region.
