The Longest-Leading Billboard Hot 100 Number Ones

Here are the Billboard Hot 100 Number 1’s that stayed at the top the longest.

“Shape of You” by ED SHEERAN has been #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 weeks, and it’s only the 34th song to be #1 for double-digit weeks in the history of the chart, which dates back to 1958.

Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men hold the overall record. Their 1995 jam “One Sweet Day” was #1 for 16 weeks . . . more than any other song. After that, there are seven songs that were #1 for 14 weeks. They are:
