Adele Is Still Breaking Her Own Records On Hot 100 With “Hello”

With a seventh week atop the Hot 100 for “Hello” (which debuted atop the Nov. 14 chart), Adele equals her longest No. 1 stay: her first leader, “Rolling in the Deep,” ruled for seven weeks in 2011 (and went on to become the No. 1 song on the 2011 year-end Hot 100). “Hello” has spent its first seven weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100. That’s the fifth-longest stretch that a No. 1-debuting song has stayed at the summit. Here’s a look at the hits to link the most consecutive weeks atop the Hot 100 from their debuts at No. 1:

16 weeks, “One Sweet Day,” Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men, 1995-96
14 weeks, “Candle in the Wind”/”Something About the Way You Look Tonight,” Elton John, 1997-98
11 weeks, “I’ll Be Missing You,” Puff Daddy & Faith Evans feat. 112, 1997
8 weeks, “Fantasy,” Mariah Carey, 1995
