List of Billboard Hot 100 chart achievements and milestones

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

The Billboard Hot 100 is a singles chart published by Billboard which measures the most popular singles in the United States. Prior to the creation of the Hot 100, Billboard published four singles charts: "Best Sellers in Stores", "Most Played by Jockeys", "Most Played in Jukeboxes" and "The Top 100". These charts, which ranged from 20 to 100 slots, were phased out at different times between 1957 and 1958. Though technically not part of the Hot 100 chart history, select data from these charts are included for computational purposes, and to avoid unenlightening or misleading characterizations. Throughout the history of the Hot 100 and its predecessor charts, many songs have set records for longevity, popularity, or number of hit singles by an individual artist. Among these records is the longest-running number one single "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X, which spent 19 weeks at that position. The Beatles have the most number one hits on the chart, with 20 songs having reached that position.

All-time achievements

In 2008, for the 50th anniversary of the Hot 100, Billboard magazine compiled a ranking of the 100 best-performing songs on the chart over the 50 years, along with the best-performing artists.[1][2] In 2013, Billboard revised the rankings for the chart's 55th anniversary edition.[3] In 2015, Billboard revised the rankings again.[4] In 2018, the rankings were revised again for the Billboard chart's 60th anniversary.[5] In 2021, Billboard revised the rankings again upon the ascendance of "Blinding Lights" to the top spot on the list.[6] Shown below are the top 10 songs and top 10 artists over the 63-year period of the Hot 100, through November 2021. Also shown are the artists placing the most songs on the overall "all-time" top 100 song list.

Changes in when the eligibility of a single first begins, as well as more accurate digital download totals, have made abrupt chart jumps more commonplace. From 1955 to 2001, under Billboard's previous methodologies, only two singles ascended directly to No. 1 from a previous position beneath the Top 20: The Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love", which jumped from No. 27 to the top slot in April 1964, and Brandy and Monica's "The Boy Is Mine" which jumped from No. 23 to No. 1 in June 1998.

Under Billboard's previous methodologies, jumps of this magnitude were rare. One exception was Jeannie C. Riley's "Harper Valley PTA," which advanced 74 slots in August 1968;[77] this upward acceleration went unmatched for 30 years, but has been surpassed over a dozen times since 2006. Changes in when the eligibility of a single first begins, as well as more accurate digital download totals, have made abrupt chart jumps more commonplace.

†† – "Purple Rain" and "When Doves Cry" reappeared on the Hot 100 for two weeks in 2016 after Prince's death, and the above reflects their re-entries only. On their original releases, in their respective last weeks before falling off the chart, "When Doves Cry" ranked No. 96 in October 1984,[123] and "Purple Rain" ranked No. 91 in January 1985.[124]

Prior to 2008, the biggest drop off the Hot 100 was "Nights in White Satin" by The Moody Blues, which ranked at No. 17 in its final week on the chart in December 1972. This high drop-off position was matched in January 1975 by "Junior's Farm" by Paul McCartney and Wings. The record descent held for over three decades. With the exception of "Calm Down", each song above dropped off the Hot 100 upon four or fewer weeks; "Nights in White Satin" and "Junior's Farm" dropped off after 18 and 12 weeks, respectively.

Holiday songs

During November and December beginning some time in the 2010s, these songs have regularly appeared on the Hot 100, generally departing from the chart once the holiday season ends in January. More recently, they have reached into the top ten, and in 2019, for only the second time ever on the Hot 100 (the first since 1958), made it to number one. This has led to all-time records for dropping off the Hot 100, including from number one, as the songs depart regardless of their final chart positions during the season. Only the highest drop-off position per song is listed and its most recent date if achieved more than once, such as "All I Want for Christmas Is You", which first dropped off the Hot 100 from number one on January 11, 2020, and did so again in 2022 and 2023.

"Billboard Hot 100"

Songs charting every week for a given calendar year on the Hot 100

There have been a handful of songs that charted more than 52 weeks throughout their runs, but only four songs have managed to chart on the Hot 100 every week within a given calendar year. The first to accomplish such milestone was Jewel's "You Were Meant for Me" charting each week of 1997.

† - Still charting as of the Hot 100 chart dated April 6, 2024.

  • Note - Jewel's "Foolish Games" began appearing on the Hot 100 in September 1997, but was paired with "You Were Meant for Me" for the remainder of that song's chart run.
  • Note - Dua Lipa's "Levitating" (solo or with DaBaby) charted every week of 2021 through December 4, 2021, and most likely could have charted all 52 weeks despite Billboard's recurrent rules. For the remaining three weeks of 2021, the song charted at number one on Billboard's recurrent chart, due to holiday songs taking up much of the Hot 100 and pushing many non-holiday songs off the chart. Once the holiday season ended, "Levitating" returned to the Hot 100 in early 2022.
  • Note - SZA's "Kill Bill" charted every week of 2023 through December 2, 2023, and most likely could have charted all 52 weeks despite Billboard's recurrent rules, due to holiday songs taking up much of the Hot 100 and pushing many non-holiday songs off the chart. Once the holiday season ended, "Kill Bill" returned to the Hot 100 in early 2024.

‡ – Pre-Hot 100 charts and Hot 100.

  • Billboard now credits the dual No. 1 Presley single "Don't Be Cruel"/"Hound Dog" as a single chart entity, and credits Presley with 17 number one singles.[150] "Don't Be Cruel"/"Hound Dog" spent 11 weeks at No. 1, "Hound Dog" for 6 weeks, and "Don't Be Cruel" for 5 weeks. Many chart statisticians, however, such as Joel Whitburn, still list Presley as having 18 number ones.

† – Pre-Hot 100 charts and Hot 100. Presley is sometimes credited with an "80th week" that occurred when "All Shook Up" spent a ninth week on top of the "Most Played in Jukeboxes" chart. Although Billboard's chart statistician Joel Whitburn still counts this 80th week based on preexisting research, Billboard magazine itself has since revised its methodology and officially credits Presley with 79 weeks.[150] Much of Presley's total factors in pre-Hot 100 data. If counting from the August 1958 Hot 100 inception, Presley totaled 22 weeks at No. 1.

  • Note: For singer Fergie, if Black Eyed Peas is included, this would put Fergie on the list with 34 weeks at No. 1.
  • Note: For singer Michael Jackson, if The Jackson 5, which would also be later known as The Jacksons, is included, this would give Michael Jackson 47 cumulative weeks at No. 1.[162]
  • Note: For singer Beyoncé, if Destiny's Child is included, this would give Beyoncé 63 cumulative weeks at No. 1.[162][163]
  • Note: For singer Diana Ross, if The Supremes are included, this would give Diana Ross 42 cumulative weeks at No. 1.
  • Note: For each of the Beatles:[162]
    • If John Lennon's total weeks were to include the Beatles, this would give John Lennon 65 cumulative weeks at No. 1.
    • If Paul McCartney's total weeks were to include the Beatles, as well as Wings, this would give Paul McCartney 89 cumulative weeks at No. 1.
    • If George Harrison's total weeks were to include the Beatles, this would give George Harrison 65 cumulative weeks at No. 1.
    • If Ringo Starr's total weeks were to include the Beatles, this would give Ringo Starr 61 cumulative weeks at No. 1.
  • Note: For rapper Drake, if the track "Sicko Mode" is included, this would give him 57 weeks at No. 1.

  • Houston's "Thinking About You" is not counted as interrupting the streak, as it never appeared on the Hot 100, due to not being released to Pop radio. Likewise, Perry's "Not Like the Movies" and "Circle the Drain" were only promotional singles, not radio singles.
  • With the streak spanning from her debut single "Vision of Love" until "Emotions," Mariah Carey became the first artist in Hot 100 history to have their first 5 solo singles reach No. 1 on the chart.

If counting Drake's feature on Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode", he would be included on the list with 4 for 2018 ("God's Plan", "Nice for What", and "In My Feelings")

Had he remained on the Hot 100 for that single week, he would have logged 221 consecutive weeks on the chart, making it the 3rd longest streak of all time.
  • Prior to her 154-week streak spanning from September 23, 2017–August 22, 2020, Halsey produced a 55-week streak stretching between the debut of "Closer" on August 20, 2016 up until September 9, 2017, when "Now or Never" spent its final week on the chart. Halsey was only off the Hot 100 for a single week before beginning her new streak on September 23, 2017. Had she remained on the Hot 100 for that single week, she would have logged 210 consecutive weeks on the chart, making it the 4th longest streak of all time.

  • The shortest No. 1 song of all time is "Stay" by Maurice Williams And The Zodiacs (November 21, 1960). It is 1 minute and 38 seconds long.[269][270]
  • The longest No. 1 song of all time is "All Too Well (Ten Minute Version) (Taylor's Version)(From the Vault)" by Taylor Swift (November 27, 2021). It is 10 minutes and 13 seconds long.[271]
  • The No. 1 song with the longest title contains 41 words and topped the charts for Stars on 45 in June 1981. Though DJs announced it as the Stars on 45 Medley, its official title is "Medley: Intro 'Venus' / Sugar Sugar / No Reply / I'll Be Back / Drive My Car / Do You Want to Know a Secret / We Can Work It Out / I Should Have Known Better / Nowhere Man / You're Going to Lose That Girl / Stars on 45."
  • The No. 1 song in the first week Billboard incorporated sales and airplay data from Nielsen SoundScan and Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems was "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss" by P.M. Dawn (November 30, 1991).[272]

  • The No. 1 song in the first week Billboard allowed songs without a commercial single release to chart on the Hot 100 was "I'm Your Angel" by R. Kelly and Céline Dion (December 5, 1998). Though the song was making its first appearance on the Hot 100 that week, Billboard did not consider it a debut at No. 1, since it appeared on unpublished test charts prior to the allowance of airplay-only songs on the main chart.[274] "I'm Your Angel" also entered the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart that week at No. 1,[275] so it would have been ineligible to chart on the Hot 100 before then.

They achieved this feat for nine consecutive weeks, from February 29, 1964, to April 25, 1964. For the first five weeks of that run, through March 28, 1964, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You" were the No. 1 and No. 2 singles (which swapped positions during March 1964), while Meet the Beatles! and Introducing... The Beatles held the top 2 spots on the albums charts. For the remaining weeks of the run, "Can't Buy Me Love" and their cover of "Twist and Shout" were the No. 1 and No. 2 singles, while Meet the Beatles! and Introducing... The Beatles continued their reign as the top 2 albums.[279][280]
  • Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ariana Grande, Drake, and Taylor Swift hold the record of writing all of the top-three singles for one week.

Swift wrote the entire top 10 songs for the week of November 5, 2022, and the top 3 on the week of November 11, 2023.[284]
  • Justin Bieber is the first artist in history to achieve new No. 1 songs in consecutive weeks on the Hot 100. On the chart dated May 27, 2017, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" dethroned DJ Khaled's "I'm the One" which debuted at No. 1 a week prior, both songs on which he is a featured artist.[285]

  • André 3000's "I Swear, I Really Wanted to Make a "Rap" Album but This Is Literally the Way the Wind Blew Me This Time" is the longest song to chart on the Hot 100, at 12:20.[295]

Her second time was with her ninth studio album, Evermore, and its lead single "Willow" (December 26, 2020);[273] the third with Red (Taylor's Version) and "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" (November 27, 2021);[192] the fourth with Midnights and its lead single, "Anti-Hero" (November 5, 2022);[221] and the fifth with 1989 (Taylor's Version) and "Is It Over Now?"
