Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!,” featuring Bruno Mars, this week becomes just the 19th No. 1 in Hot 100 history to lead for at least 11 weeks. It’s just the second to reach that level this decade: Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” featuring T.I. and Pharrell, began a 12-week command in June 2013.
“Funk” logs an 11th week atop the Digital Songs chart with 189,000 downloads sold (down 10 percent) in the week ending March 15, according to Nielsen Music. It’s now one of just three songs to lead Digital Songs for at least 11 weeks: Flo Rida’s “Low,” featuring T-Pain, racked a record 13 weeks on top in 2007-08, while Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” dominated for 11 weeks last year.
Ronson and Mars’ collab, thus, leads the Hot 100 and its three main component charts (Digital Songs, Radio Songs and Streaming Songs) simultaneously for a record-extending seventh week (nonconsecutively).
