"Blinding Lights" has received the highest honor Billboard can reward, as the song is now the No. 1 Hot 100 song of all time!
"A designation that factors in total weeks on the chart as well as exact chart positions, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least."
"Blinding Lights" jumps Chubby Checker's "The Twist" from 1960, which had the position since 2008. Other songs in the top five "Uptown Funk!" by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars and "Smooth" by Santana and Rob Thomas.
The song is the longest charting Hot 100 song ever, longest-reigning No. 1 song on the Hot 100 and it spent an entire year in the top 10 of the Hot 100.
"I’ve always been tinkering with the [sounds of the] ’80s. It was much more subtle before, but I’ve always wanted to completely dive into it. And 10 years in, I think I’ve earned it." The WeeKND said.
