Ed Sheeran Makes Billboard Chart History With "Shape Of You"
GRAMMY winner Ed Sheeran is making Billboard chart history with his smash hit, "Shape Of You."
On Aug. 21 "Shape Of You" hit the 32-week mark in the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, which is now tied for first place for most weeks in the Top 10 in the chart's history. GRAMMY-winning dance/electronic duo the Chainsmokers also hold the first place title with "Closer," featuring Halsey, spending 32 weeks in the Top 10, as does GRAMMY winner LeAnn Rimes for 1997's "How Do I Live."
A close follow-up with 31 weeks in the Top 10 is Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' Record Of The Year GRAMMY-winning hit "Uptown Funk." Santana's "Smooth," featuring Rob Thomas — also a Record Of The Year winner — holds the next spot with 30 weeks in the Top 10.
The other record-holding Top 10 hits include LMFAO featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock's 2011 "Party Rock Anthem" (29 weeks), Jewel's 1997 hit "Foolish Games"/"You Were Meant for Me" (28 weeks), Mars' current hit "That's What I Like (27 weeks), and Savage Garden's 1998 track "Truly Madly Deeply" (26 weeks).
Notably, Mars' "That's What I Like" could move up in the ranks of Top 10 winners, as it still sits at No. 8, while Sheeran's "Shape Of You" could pull away as the longest-running Top 10 hit in Billboard Hot 100 history with just another week in the Top 10. It's currently at No. 9.
