“Does that even happen anymore? 16 weeks…at number one?”
Yes, Bruno, for you it can!

HOLD ON, FUNK MASTERS. ONLY A FEW MORE WEEKS TO GO. SOON YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO SURPASS THE ELUSIVE CHANTEUSE. 

BILLBOARD US: Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!,” featuring Bruno Mars, is the longest-leading Billboard Hot 100 of the 2010s, ruling the chart for a 13th week (chart week ending March 29 2015). It’s also just the 10th single in the Hot 100’s entire history to spend at least 13 weeks at No. 1. With “Funk” now just three weeks from potentially tying “One Sweet Day” for the record, and four weeks from possibly claiming it all to itself, can it rewrite Hot 100 history? It’s too early to forecast charts a month away, but “Funk” still sports strong leads in all main Hot 100 metrics.
