The Weeknd continues to make history with his hit song, “Blinding Lights.”
The former #1 record moved down to the #8 spot this week but the drop allowed The Weeknd to score yet another impressive record, officially passing LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” as the longest-reigning #1 record on the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10.

“Blinding Lights” has officially become the fourth-longest overall stay on the influential music chart, spending a total of 69 weeks on the list.
As the longest-reigning chart-topper ever on the Hot 100, “Blinding Lights” still has a way to go to become the longest-reigning overall song in the chart’s history. Imagine Dragons’ hit “Radioactive” spent 87 weeks in the Top 10 despite never reaching #1.
