Three songs have each logged 33 weeks in the top tier.

In addition to soaring in atop the Billboard 200 with his new album, Hollywood's Bleeding, and charting all 17 songs from the set on the Billboard Hot 100, Post Malone ties an historic Hot 100 mark.

Swae Lee, too.

Post Malone and Swae Lee's "Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)" rebounds from No. 14 to No. 10 on the Hot 100 (dated Sept. 21) to spend a 33rd week in the top 10, matching Maroon 5's "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, and Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" for the longest top 10 run in the chart's 61-year history.

"Sunflower," first released on the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack and included on Hollywood's Bleeding, notched  its first week in the Hot 100's top tier upon its No. 9 debut on the chart dated Nov. 3, 2018. Its top 10 résumé includes a week at No. 1 (Jan. 19).

Here's an updated look at the songs that have spent the most time in the Hot 100's top 10, dating to the chart's Aug. 4, 1958, inception:

Most weeks in Billboard Hot 100's top 10
33, "Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)," Post Malone & Swae Lee, 2018-19
33, "Girls Like You," Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B, 2018-19
33, "Shape of You," Ed Sheeran, 2017
32, "Sicko Mode," Travis Scott, 2018-19
32, "Closer," The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey, 2016-17
32, "How Do I Live," LeAnn Rimes, 1997-98
31, "Uptown Funk!," Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars, 2014-15
30, "Smooth," Santana feat. Rob Thomas, 1999-2000

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music. (Notably, six of the top seven songs on the list above have charted since the mid-2010s, as sustained streaming success has helped extend the top 10 runs of certain hits.)

As reported Monday, Lizzo's "Truth Hurts" tops the Hot 100 for a third week, Post Malone achieves the rare feat of charting four titles in the top 10 simultaneously and Lewis Capaldi lands his first top 10 with "Someone You Loved."

Over on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, "Sunflower" spends a record-extending 46th week in the top 10, having led the list for 11 weeks in January through March.
