Chainsmokers Ties For 3rd Longest Artist With Most Consecutive Weeks In The Hot 100’s Top 10

COn the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, the twosome of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers zooms 7-3 on the Hot 100 with “Something Just Like This,” its collab with Coldplay. The song passes its prior No. 5 high to tie for The Chainsmokers’ second-highest-charting hit: before their 12-week No. 1 “Closer,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” featuring Daya, reached No. 3 in July 2016. Coldplay has charted higher only with “Viva La Vida,” its sole No. 1 in 2008.

“Something” stays at No. 4 on Digital Song Sales (59,000, down 1 percent) and surges 18-12 on Radio Songs (59 million, up 20 percent) and 25-15 on Streaming Songs (18.3 million, up 3 percent). It leads the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a fourth week.

Thanks to “Something,” as well as the duo’s No. 6-peaking “Paris,” which rebounds 10-9, The Chainsmokers have now spent 48 consecutive weeks in the Hot 100’s top 10, dating to May 21, 2016 (and encompassing four top 10s), tying Ace of Base’s record streak among non-solo acts. Here’s an update among all artists:
