Your weekly recap celebrating significant milestones from more than seven decades of Billboard chart history.

Jan. 21, 2012
Days-old Blue Ivy Carter made Billboard chart history, receiving featured credit on dad Jay-Z's "Glory." As the track, enhanced by her cooing, debuted on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at No. 74, she became the youngest person ever credited on a Billboard chart.

Jan. 22, 1994
25 years ago: Playing off the movie The Three Musketeers, the trio of Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart and Sting tripled up atop the Billboard Hot 100 for the first of, fittingly, three weeks, with the film's hit single "All for Love."

Jan. 23, 1988
Michael Jackson scored his third Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 from Bad, as "The Way You Make Me Feel" reached the summit. The song became one of a historic five No. 1s from the album, the only set by a male to produce a quintet of Hot 100 leaders. Katy Perry tied the record with five toppers from Teenage Dream in 2010-11.

Jan. 24, 1998
As the movie reigned at the box office, the Titanic soundtrack began its 16-week Billboard 200 rule. The set and the title it replaced at No. 1, Celine Dion's Let's Talk About Love, both include the film's signature ballad, "My Heart Will Go On."

Jan. 25, 1992
Color Me Badd collected its second Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, as "All 4 Love" followed prior single "I Adore Mi Amor" to the top.

Jan. 26, 1991
Sting crowned Alternative Songs with the first single from his album The Soul Cages, as "All This Time" hit No. 1.

Jan. 27, 2018
One year ago: Camila Cabello hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Havana," featuring Young Thug. "It's been such a journey with 'Havana,' because, I mean, I released the song last summer," Cabello marveled to Billboard upon receiving the news of the coronation. "It's just amazing to see that people have connected to it so much. When we were making the song, even though it was really special to me, I don't think anyone expected for this to happen. It's an incredible surprise."
