Adele's "Hello" is just the 31st of 1,048 total Hot 100 leaders to reign for double-digit weeks.

Adele broke records at the end of 2015 with the release of her album 25. Now, to kick off the new year, her smash song "Hello" has joined the elite list of hits to log 10 or more weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Since the chart's launch in 1958, just 31 No. 1s (including "Hello") have hit that milestone, of 1,048 total leaders. That places "Hello" in the top 3 percent of the longest-leading No. 1s.

Debby Boone was the first artist to earn the honor, with "You Light Up My Life" in 1977; Boyz II Men have the most such songs, with three: "End of the Road," "I'll Make Love to You" and "One Sweet Day," with Mariah Carey; "One Sweet Day" is the all-time record-holder with 16 weeks at No. 1.
