Chart Check [Hot 100]: ‘Stay’ Extends Reign as Justin Bieber’s Longest Running #1 Hit

Published: Tuesday 12th Oct 2021 by Rashad

As if earning his 25th Hot 100 top 10 hit this week wasn’t enough to celebrate, Justin Bieber‘s blasted back to #1 on the tally with his enduring Kid LAROI hit, ‘Stay.’

To no surprise, the rebound was accomplished to history-making measure.  See how inside:

Having already enjoyed most of its Hot 100 stay in the top 10, the song first cracked the top spot in mid-August – beginning a nonconsecutive, 7-week bid there.

At week 4, the tune surpassed Bieber’s ‘Sorry’ to become his longest-running chart-topper.  This week, after bumping BTS from the pole position, it’s extended that personal record.

See the numbers that powered its push back to #1.

  • Streaming: 23.2 million streams
  • Digital Downloads: 7,400 downloads
  • Radio Airplay: 86.4 million audience impressions

The win comes as more than a personal milestone for Justin, however.  With the recapture of the chart’s summit, LAROI and Bieber tie the all-time record for the second-longest reigning all-male #1 hit.
