COLD 100

@gthot20 I noticed that "Ice" by Kelly Rowland feat. Lil Wayne (was) at no. 100 -- again. What's the record for most weeks spent at that spot?


Hi Sam,

Although "Ice" heats up slightly this past week, rising from No. 100 to 98 on the Hot 100, the song has ranked at No. 100 four times: last week (Jan. 19) and its first three (Sept. 15, Nov. 10, 17).

With four frames at No. 100, "Ice" ties a Hot 100 record: the most weeks a title has spent at the chart's anchor spot. Here are the seven songs to do so, along with their peak positions:

"Ice," Kelly Rowland featuring Lil Wayne, No. 88, 2012
"Maps," Yeah Yeah Yeahs, No. 87, 2004
"I'd Rather," Luther Vandross, No. 83, 2002
"Crawling in the Dark," Hoobastank, No. 68, 2002
"Angels in Waiting," Tammy Cochran, No. 73, 2001


"Brian Wilson," Barenaked Ladies, No. 68, 1998
"Da Doo Ron Ron," Shaun Cassidy, No. 1, 1977

While the mark could be considered dubious, the list above contains such memorable songs as Barenaked Ladies' '90s rock classic, Vandross' nine-week Adult R&B No. 1 and Cassidy's pure pop Hot 100 leader.
