Panic! At The Disco’s High Hopes Becomes Longest-Leading Number One Single In 10 Years
You know those songs you can’t go anywhere without hearing? The ones that are completely inescapable… like Nickelback’s Photograph and No Doubt’s Don’t Speak? The ones that hog the Number One spot in the chart for weeks and weeks and weeks?
Well Panic! At The Disco’s High Hopes is officially one of those songs.
After becoming Panic!’s highest-charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 ever (it reached Number Four in January), it’s now the longest-leading Number One song on the Adult Pop Songs chart this decade – decade! – after sticking at the top for 15 weeks in a row.
The last song to achieve 15 weeks on the Number One spot was The Fray’s How To Save A Life back in 2006/2007.
