In addition to welcoming the new year, Imagine Dragons and AWOLNATION have another reason to raise a glass of champagne this week. Imagine Dragons' “Radioactive” and AWOLNATION’s “Sail” have been so successful they both made the top-10 list of the longest-charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 , which was created in 1958.
“Radioactive” has spent a total of 69 weeks on the chart so far, which elevates the single to the #2 spot on the tally, sharing the slot with country star LeAnn Rimes ’ single "How Do I Live," according to Nielsen SoundScan. “Sail” claims the #3 spot on the list, an honor they share with electronic dance music rapper duo LMFAO 's single "Party Rock Anthem." Both singles have spent 68 weeks on the Hot 100.
Another rock act that scored a place on the top-10 list of the longest-charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 is The Lumineers . Their hit single, “Ho Hey,” has spent a total of 62 weeks on the chart.
The song that's spent the most time on the Hot 100 is pop star Jason Mraz 's single "I'm Yours," which tops the list at 76 weeks.
