Because The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber‘s hit, ‘Stay,’ opted to stay at #1 for yet another week on the Hot 100, the win comes as a layered victory for the latter.
See how inside:
As we reported here last week, Bieber was just one-week shy of holding the all-time record for ‘most cumulative weeks in the Hot 100’s top 10’ among male vocalists. The title, previously held by the singer’s mentor/R&B icon Usher, was set at a whopping 273 weeks – a feat tied by Justin once the Laroi duet topped the tally.
Thanks to another impressive mix of streaming, digital downloads, and radio airplay, ‘Stay’s stay at #1 earned Biebs a record-breaking 274th career week in the top 10. The Pop prince now reigns as the male vocalist with the most overall weeks in the chart’s top 10. Among all artists, only Rihanna (360 weeks), Drake (301 weeks), and Mariah Carey (288 weeks) boast a longer overall run in the same chart region.
