Billboard Hot 100: 10 weeks on top for Ed Sheeran (‘Shape of You’), The Chainsmokers keep making history

Billboard has announced the songs that made its Hot 100 singles chart for the week dated April 15, and after a long reign at the top spot it should surprise no one that Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You” achieves a milestone 10th week at number-one. It is only the 34th song to spend 10 weeks or more as the Billboard charts leader in almost 60 years of the Hot 100, which dates back to August 1958.

The last song to spend that long on top was “Closer” by The Chainsmokers featuring Halsey, which stayed at number-one for 12 weeks in 2016. “Closer” recently dropped out of the top 10 after a historic run, but The Chainsmokers are still in the top 10 — twice. “Something Just Like This,” their collaboration with Coldplay, jumps from number-seven to a new peak position at number-three. And “Paris” moves up to ninth place from number-10. That gives the electronic dance music duo their 48th consecutive week in the top 10, tying Ace of Base for the longest top-10 run ever for a duo or group. The only artists who have spent more time in the top 10 consecutively were Katy Perry (69 weeks from 2010 to 2011) and Drake (51 weeks from 2015 to 2016).

Also making gains this week were “iSpy” by Kyle featuring Lil Yachty, way up from number-12 to number-five, and “I Feel it Coming” by The Weeknd and Daft Punk, up from number-five to number-four. And “That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars holds steady in second place. But Mars probably doesn’t like the shape of you, Mr. Sheeran, as he keeps trying to grab the top spot.
