It also ties for the band's longest-leading hit on Adult Pop Songs.

Maroon 5's "Memories" rises to No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary radio airplay chart (dated March 21).

The song becomes the band's fourth AC No. 1, after "Maps" (for a week in 2015), "Don't Wanna Know" (five weeks, 2017) and "Girls Like You," which spent a record 36 weeks at the summit beginning in November 2018.

"Memories" also makes for a milestone for Maroon 5 on the Adult Pop Songs airplay chart, as it rebounds for a 14th total frame on top, matching "Girls" for the band's longest reign on the ranking. Until "Girls" and "Memories," Maroon 5 had posted two 13-week Adult Pop Songs No. 1s, in its first two visits, with "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved," both in 2004.

In December, "Memories" became Maroon 5's record-extending 14th Adult Pop Songs No. 1.

On the multi-metric, all-genre Billboard Hot 100, "Memories" hit No. 2 in January, making Maroon 5 the second group, after The Rolling Stones, to have notched top-two Hot 100 hits in three separate decades.
