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 the period 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).

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;[27] 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.

Biggest drops off the Hot 100

† — "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson reappeared on the Hot 100 for one week in 2014, and the above reflects the re-entry only. When the song originally charted in 1983, it fell off the chart from a much lower position.

Prior to 2008, the biggest drop off the Hot 100 was "Nights in White Satin" by The Moody Blues, which ranked at #17 in its final week on the chart in December 1972. This high drop-off position was matched in January 1975 by "Junior's Farm" by Paul McCartney and Wings. The record went unchallenged for more than three decades, but every title listed above achieved its drop-off after just one week on the Hot 100, with the exception of Justin Bieber's "Heartbreaker" (two weeks). "Nights in White Satin" and "Junior's Farm" dropped off after 18 and 12 weeks, respectively.

  • The biggest number-one listed by each artist reflects its overall performance on the Hot 100, as calculated by Billboard, and may not necessarily be the single which spent the most weeks at #1 for the artist, such as Madonna's "Like a Virgin" (six weeks at #1, compared to seven for "Take a Bow") and Michael Jackson's duet with Paul McCartney, "Say Say Say" (six weeks at #1, compared to seven for both his solo singles "Billie Jean" and "Black or White").
  • Billboard now credits the dual #1 Presley single "Don't Be Cruel/Hound Dog" as a single chart entity. "Don't Be Cruel/Hound Dog" spent 11 weeks at #1, Hound Dog for 6 weeks, Don't Be Cruel for 5 weeks. Many chart statisticians however, such as Joel Whitburn still lists Presley as having 18 number ones.

*† Pre-Hot 100 charts and Hot 100. 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.[67]
*Much of Presley's total factors in pre-Hot 100 data. If counting from the August 1958 Hot 100 inception, Presley totaled 22 weeks at #1.

Selected additional Hot 100 achievements

  • The first #1 song on the Hot 100 was "Poor Little Fool" by Ricky Nelson (August 4, 1958).
  • The #1 song in the first week Billboard incorporated sales and airplay data from Nielsen SoundScan and Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems was "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss" by P.M. Dawn (November 30, 1991).
  • The #1 song in the first week Billboard allowed songs without a commercial single release to chart on the Hot 100 was "I'm Your Angel" by R. Kelly & Céline Dion (December 5, 1998). Though the song was making its first appearance on the Hot 100 that week, Billboard did not consider it a debut at #1, since it appeared on unpublished test charts prior to the allowance of airplay-only songs on the main chart.[113] "I'm Your Angel" also entered the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart that week at #1,[114] so it would have been ineligible to chart on the Hot 100 before then.
  • The first "airplay-only" song to reach #1 (no points from a commercial single release) was "Try Again" by Aaliyah (June 17, 2000).
  • The Beatles hold the record for the most entries in the Hot 100 during a one-week period. They had 14 for the week April 11, 1964.[115] Taylor Swift holds the record by a female artist with 11 entries on the Hot 100 for the week of November 13, 2010.[116]
  • The Beatles are the only artists to simultaneously hold the top 2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and Billboard 200 albums chart. From the week of April 4, 1964 through the week of April 25, 1964, "Can't Buy Me Love" and their cover of "Twist and Shout" were the #1 and #2 singles, while "Meet the Beatles!" and "Introducing... The Beatles" held the top 2 spots on the albums charts.[117]
  • Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, John Lennon, and Paul McCartney hold the record of writing all of the Top 3 singles for one week. The Gibbs co-wrote the top 3 singles for the week of March 18, 1978 – #1 "Night Fever" and #2 "Stayin' Alive" for the Bee Gees, and #3 "Emotion" for Samantha Sang. Lennon and McCartney co-wrote the top 3 singles for the week of March 14, 1964 - #1 "I Want to Hold Your Hand", #2 "She Loves You", and #3 "Please Please Me", all for The Beatles. They continued this record the following week of March 21, 1964, when "She Loves You" switched places with "I Want to Hold Your Hand".
  • For the week of June 7, 2008, American Idol season 7 winner David Cook set a record with the most debuts in a single week (11).[118]
  • The Black Eyed Peas hold the record for the longest uninterrupted time at #1 on the Hot 100, a total of 26 consecutive weeks from April to October 2009. "Boom Boom Pow" spent the first 12 weeks on top, with "I Gotta Feeling" taking over for the remaining 14 weeks.[119] Prior to August 2009, Usher held this record, spending 19 consecutive weeks on top of the chart in 2004 with "Yeah!" (12 weeks at #1) and "Burn" (first 7 of its 8 total weeks at #1).[120]
  • Taylor Swift holds the all-time record for most top ten debuts on the Hot 100, with 12.[121][122][better source needed]
  • On December 4, 2010, Rihanna's "Only Girl (In the World)" reached the top spot two weeks after "What's My Name?", becoming the first time in Hot 100 history that an album's debut single hit #1 after the second single did.[123]
  • Billboard magazine, in its 55th anniversary issue, named "The Twist" by Chubby Checker as the all-time most successful single on the Hot 100. It is the only single to have two entirely separate runs to the #1 spot, in 1960 and 1962.[124]
  • In the 55th anniversary issue, Billboard magazine named The Beatles as the top Hot 100 artist of all time.[1]
