The band matches the No. 1 totals of Katy Perry and Rihanna.

Maroon 5 matches the mark for the most No. 1s in the history of Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart, as "Memories" takes over atop the Feb. 8-dated tally.

The track is Maroon 5's 11th Pop Songs No. 1, lifting the band into a tie with Katy Perry and Rihanna for the most leaders since the list launched in 1992. (The survey ranks the most-played songs each week on 168 mainstream top 40 stations, as measured by Nielsen Music/MRC Data.)

Maroon 5 last led Pop Songs with "Girls Like You" (featuring Cardi B), for five weeks beginning in August 2018. The group first ruled with "This Love" in 2004.

Here's an updated look at the acts with the most Pop Songs No. 1s:

11, Maroon 5
11, Katy Perry
11, Rihanna
9, Bruno Mars
9, P!nk
9, Taylor Swift
8, Justin Timberlake
7, Beyoncé
7, Lady Gaga

Maroon's Adam Levine has also achieved two Pop Songs No. 1s in featured solo roles: on Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts" (2011) and R. City's "Locked Away" (2015).

"Memories" concurrently crowns the Adult Pop Songs chart (based on airplay on 84 adult top 40 stations) for a 10th week, marking Maroon 5's fourth No. 1 to lead for double-digit frames (among the act's record 14 No. 1s). "Girls Like You" dominated for 14 weeks in 2018 and "She Will Be Loved" and "This Love" each ruled for 13 weeks in 2004. Only matchbox twenty also boasts four Adult Pop Songs No. 1s that have led for at least 10 weeks each (with frontman Rob Thomas also having tallied two as a soloist).

Back on the Pop Songs chart, other moves include three high-profile debuts: Lizzo's "Cuz I Love You" (No. 29), Taylor Swift's "The Man" (No. 31) and Selena Gomez's "Rare" (No. 36). Swift's new single also starts at No. 35 on Adult Pop Songs.
