Billboard Hot 100 logo.jpg

This is a comprehensive listing which highlights significant achievements and milestones based upon Billboard magazine's singles charts, most notably the Billboard Hot 100. This list spans from the issue dated January 1, 1955 to present. The Billboard Hot 100 began with the issue dated August 4, 1958, and is currently the standard popular music chart in the United States.

Prior to the creation of the Hot 100, Billboard published four singles charts: "Best Sellers in Stores", "Most Played by Jockeys", "Most Played in Jukeboxes" and "The Top 100". These charts, which ranged from 20 to 100 slots, were phased out at different times between 1957 and 1958. Though technically not part of the Hot 100 chart history, their data is included for computational purposes, and to avoid unenlightening or misleading characterizations. All items listed below are from the Hot 100 era, unless otherwise noted (pre-Hot 100 charts).

Most total weeks on the Hot 100

The year displayed is the year the songs ended their respective chart runs. Only songs that spent 53 weeks or more in the Billboard Hot 100 are considered for inclusion in this section.

Number-one debuts

Biggest jump to number one

Changes in when the eligibility of a single first begins, as well as more accurate digital download totals, have made abrupt chart jumps more commonplace. From 1955-2001, under Billboard's previous methodologies, only two singles ascended directly to #1 from a previous position beneath the Top 20: The Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love", which jumped from #27 to the top slot in April 1964, and Brandy and Monica's "The Boy Is Mine" which jumped from #23 to #1 in June 1998.

Biggest single-week upward movements

Under Billboard's previous methodologies, jumps of this magnitude were rare. One exception was Jeannie C. Riley's "Harper Valley PTA," which advanced 74 slots in August 1968; this upward acceleration went unmatched for 30 years, but has been surpassed over a dozen times since 2006. Changes in when the eligibility of a single first begins, as well as more accurate digital download totals, have made abrupt chart jumps more commonplace.

Artist achievements

Self-replacement at number one

†The Black Eyed Peas (with both "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta Feeling") hold the chart record for 26 consecutive weeks in the #1 spot. Usher (with both "Yeah!" and "Burn") stayed for 19 weeks; Elvis Presley and Boyz II Men each had a 16-week run atop the Hot 100 with the above-listed pairs of singles ("On Bended Knee"'s six weeks at #1 were non-consecutive). The longest run for one song is also 16 weeks (see Most weeks at number one, above).

Most Hot 100 entries

Most top 40 singles

Most top 10 singles

NOTE: If Top 10 sides are considered—that is, singles whose A-sides and B-sides both charted as separate Top 10 entries—then Elvis Presley would be tied the most, with 38 Top 10 songs, and Janet Jackson would have 28. The totals for Madonna, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and so on would remain as is.

Most number-one singles

NOTE: Billboard now credits the dual #1 Presley single "Don't Be Cruel/Hound Dog" as a single chart entity. However, chart statistician Joel Whitburn still lists Presley as having 18 number ones. Much of that total factors in pre-Hot 100 data. If counting from the August 1958 Hot 100 inception, Presley attained 7 number one songs.

  • Presley is sometimes credited with an "80th week" that occurred when "All Shook Up" spent a ninth week on top of the "Most Played in Jukeboxes" chart. Although Billboard's chart statistician Joel Whitburn still counts this 80th week based on preexisting research, Billboard magazine itself has since revised its methodology and officially credits Presley with 79 weeks.[32]
