List of Billboard Hot 100 chart achievements and milestones


This is a comprehensive listing that highlights significant achievements and milestones based upon Billboard magazine's singles charts, most notably the Billboard Hot 100. This list spans the period from the issue dated January 1, 1955 to present. The Billboard Hot 100 began with the issue dated August 4, 1958, and is currently the standard popular music chart 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.

All items listed below are from the Hot 100 era, unless otherwise noted (pre-Hot 100 charts).

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] Shown below are the top 10 songs and top 10 artists over the 60-year period of the Hot 100, through July 2018. 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;[46] 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, and the above reflects their re-entries only. When the songs originally charted in 1984, their chart positions in their final week on the Hot 100 were well below the top 10.

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. 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.

† The biggest number-one listed by each artist reflects its overall performance on the Hot 100, as calculated by Billboard, and may not necessarily be the single which spent the most weeks at No. 1 for the artist, such as Madonna's "Like a Virgin" (six weeks at No. 1, compared to seven for "Take a Bow"), Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" (fourteen weeks at No. 1, compared to sixteen for her duet with Boyz II Men, "One Sweet Day") and Michael Jackson's duet with Paul McCartney, "Say Say Say" (six weeks at No. 1, compared to seven for both his solo singles "Billie Jean" and "Black or White").

‡ 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.[110] "Don't Be Cruel"/"Hound Dog" spent 11 weeks at No. 1, "Hound Dog" for 6 weeks, "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.[110] 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.
  • Note: For singer Beyoncé, if Destiny's Child is included, this would give Beyoncé 60 cumulative weeks at No. 1.
  • 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:
    • 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 put him on the list with 52 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.

    Selected additional Hot 100 achievements


    • The first No. 1 song on the Hot 100 was "Poor Little Fool" by Ricky Nelson (August 4, 1958).[248]
    • The shortest No. 1 song of all time is "Stay" (1 minute, 38 seconds) by Maurice Williams And The Zodiacs (November 21, 1960).[249][250]
    • 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).[251]
    • 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.[252] "I'm Your Angel" also entered the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart that week at No. 1,[253] so it would have been ineligible to chart on the Hot 100 before then.
    • The first "airplay-only" song to reach No. 1 (no points from a commercial single release) was "Try Again" by Aaliyah (June 17, 2000).[254]
    • Drake holds the record for the most entries in the Hot 100 during a one-week period, with 27 on the July 14, 2018 chart.[255] The Beatles had long held this record, occupying 14 positions on the Hot 100 dated April 11, 1964, a feat unmatched for nearly 51 years. On March 7, 2015, Drake tied the Beatles mark,[256] and he equaled it again on October 17 that year.[227] Justin Bieber then reset the record to 17 on December 5, 2015,[257] before Drake reclaimed the record with 20 on May 21, 2016, and broke his own record with 24 on the April 8, 2017 chart and broke it again with 27 on July 14, 2018.[227][258]
    • Drake also holds the record for the most debuting entries on a Hot 100 chart by any artist, with 22 on July 14, 2018.[255]
    • The Beatles are the only artists to simultaneously hold the top 2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and Billboard 200 albums chart. 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.[259][260]
    • Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney hold the record of writing all of the Top 3 singles for one week. The Gibbs co-wrote the top 3 singles for the week of March 18, 1978 – No. 1 "Night Fever" and No. 2 "Stayin' Alive" for the Bee Gees, and No. 3 "Emotion" for Samantha Sang.[246] Lennon and McCartney co-wrote the top 3 singles for the week of March 14, 1964 – No. 1 "I Want to Hold Your Hand", No. 2 "She Loves You", and No. 3 "Please Please Me", all for The Beatles.[261] They continued this record the following week of March 21, 1964, when "She Loves You" switched places with "I Want to Hold Your Hand".[159][262]
    • The Black Eyed Peas hold the record for the longest uninterrupted time at No. 1 on the Hot 100, a total of 26 consecutive weeks from April to October 2009. "Boom Boom Pow" spent the first 12 weeks on top, with "I Gotta Feeling" taking over for the remaining 14 weeks.[263] Prior to August 2009, Usher held this record, spending 19 consecutive weeks on top of the chart in 2004 with "Yeah!" (12 weeks at No. 1) and "Burn" (first 7 of its 8 total weeks at No. 1).[264]
    • On December 4, 2010, Rihanna's "Only Girl (In the World)" reached the top spot two weeks after "What's My Name?", becoming the first time in Hot 100 history that an album's lead single hit No. 1 after the second single did.[265]
    • Ed Sheeran became the first artist to debut more than one song in the top 10 for the same week. On the chart dated January 28, 2017, "Shape of You" debuted at No. 1, while "Castle on the Hill" entered at No. 6.[266] Drake later achieved this feat on three separate occasions, doing so on April 8, 2017,[226] February 3, 2018,[267] and July 14, 2018.[268] In the latter week, Drake broke the record by debuting four songs in the top 10.
    • Drake is the only artist to have a number-one debut replace another number-one debut. He did this April 21, 2018, when "Nice For What" replaced "God's Plan" at the summit, after the latter had spent eleven weeks on top.[269]
    • Ariana Grande is the only artist to have the lead single from each of her first six albums debut in the Hot 100's top 10.[178][270]
    • On July 14, 2018, Drake set the record for the most songs in the top ten at once, with seven. The Beatles had previously held the record, since 1964, with five entries.[179]
    • Ariana Grande is the first artist whose first five number-one songs all debuted at the top spot.[217] She achieved this with the songs "Thank U, Next", "7 Rings", "Stuck With U", "Rain On Me", and "Positions" on the charts dated November 17, 2018, February 2, 2019, May 23, 2020, June 6, 2020, and November 6, 2020 respectively.
    • In the list of August 17, 2019, Tool's "Fear Inoculum" broke the record of longest song to enter the Hot 100, with 10 minutes and 21 seconds and peaking at number 93. Meanwhile, "November Rain" by Guns N' Roses holds the record for longest song to reach the top 10, with 8 minutes and 55 seconds and peaking at number 3, and "American Pie" by Don McLean holds the record for longest number one song of the charts, with 8 minutes and 37 seconds.[271]
    • On April 4, 1998, Madonna became the artist with the most No. 2 peaking hits in history (with 6 songs: "Material Girl", "Causing A Commotion", "Express Yourself" and "Cherish", "I'll Remember", and "Frozen"). Taylor Swift has tied this record with "You Belong with Me", "Today Was a Fairytale", "I Knew You Were Trouble", "I Don't Wanna Live Forever", "Me!" and "You Need to Calm Down".[272]

Group En Vogue has the next most with three ("Hold On", "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)", "Don't Let Go (Love)").[273]
    • Mariah Carey is the first artist to have a number-one single in four different decades after "All I Want for Christmas Is You" topped the chart in January 2020 for a third consecutive week. Previously, she had fourteen number-one hits in the 1990s, four in the 2000s, and "All I Want for Christmas Is You" starting its run at the top spot in December 2019 and becoming the first song to hold the top position in three different chart years (2019, 2020, and 2021).[274]
    • Taylor Swift is the first act to simultaneously debut two songs in the top-four and three songs in the top-six of the chart. She achieved it when "Cardigan", "The 1" and "Exile", debuted at numbers one, four and six, respectively, on the chart dated August 8, 2020.[141]
    • Ariana Grande is the first artist in history to debut three songs at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in a single calendar year. "Stuck With U", "Rain On Me", and "Positions" all debuted at number one in 2020.[218]

It was also the first time that the top three were all simultaneous debuts, with Drake carrying those three songs ("What's Next", "Wants and Needs" and "Lemon Pepper Freestyle") to become the first artist to debut in positions one, two and three on the same chart. (Debuting at number four was "Leave the Door Open" by Silk Sonic).[116]
