The Weeknd’s ‘Blinding Lights’ Spends Year In Top 10

The Weeknd‘s Blinding Lights has become the first song ever to spend an entire year in the top 10 of the US Hot 100 singles chart.

Originally released as a single in November 2019, the track went to number one in the US on April 4 2020 and has so far spent a total of 64 weeks in the Hot 100.

In the latest Hot 100 chart (set to be published later today) Blinding Lights will remain in the top 10 for the 52nd consecutive week – making i the first song ever in the Hot 100’s history (which dates back to August 1958) to spend a year in the top 10.

The song became the chart’s longest-running top-ten hit last year (beating Post Malone’s Circles, which ran for 39 weeks), which also makes it the first song to rack up 52 weeks in the top 10.
