From "Royals" to "Happy," check out the 10 songs that have ruled the Hot 100 chart the longest since the start of the decade.

This week, "Uptown Funk!" by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars logs its 13th consecutive week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart, becoming the longest-running chart-topper of the 2010s so far by spending over three months in the top spot. The smash hit has been methodically surpassing other singles that have ruled the chart for extended periods this decade, and now the collaboration's streak sits atop the list of the longest-leading Hot 100 No. 1s of the 2010s so far.

Full Breakdown of 'Uptown Funk!'s' Chart Run

Check out the full Top 10 of the longest-running No. 1s of the decade so far, and see if your favorite recent hit is among them:

Gotye feat. Kimbra, "Somebody That I Used To Know"
No. 1 For: 8 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: April 28, 2012

With the help of an eye-popping video and a xylophone, Belgian-Australian artist Gotye and his New Zealand collaborator Kimbra came out of nowhere to crash the Hot 100 in the spring of 2012.

Meghan Trainor, "All About That Bass"
No. 1 For: 8 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: September 20, 2014

Months after impressing Antonio "L.A." Reid with a ukulele version of "All About That Bass," Meghan Trainor sent the studio single straight to No. 1, and continued to bring booty back when she scored a Top 5 hit with follow-up "Lips Are Movin'."

Lorde, "Royals"
No. 1 For: 9 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: October 12, 2013

The New Zealand teenager may have never seen a diamond in the flesh, but she did send her debut single to the top of the Hot 100 chart after conquering alternative radio and igniting a label bidding war. "Royals" was following by the Top 10 hit "Team," also from Lorde's debut album, Pure Heroine.

Maroon 5, "One More Night"
No. 1 For: 9 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: September 29, 2012

Famously, Maroon 5's monster hit "One More Night" helped block PSY's "Gangnam Style" from the top of the Hot 100 when it began its run at the peak in September 2012. The song joins "Moves Like Jagger" and "Makes Me Wonder" as the only Maroon 5 songs to hit No. 1 on the chart (although current hit "Sugar" has peaked at No. 2 thus far).

Carly Rae Jepsen, "Call Me Maybe"
No. 1 For: 9 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: June 23, 2012

After Justin Bieber shouted out fellow Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen on Twitter, the pop singer-songwriter's "Call Me Maybe" began its slow rise up the Hot 100, eventually becoming the song of the summer in 2012. Jepsen -- who also crashed the Top 10 with the Owl City collaboration "Good Time" -- later opened for Bieber on his Believe tour.

Kesha, "TiK ToK"
No. 1 For: 9 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: January 2, 2010

Kesha (it was Ke$ha in 2010) started off the decade with a bang as debut single "TiK ToK" ruled pop radio throughout that winter, and set up a fruitful career for the former chorus singer of Flo Rida's "Right Round."

Pharrell Williams, "Happy"
No. 1 For: 10 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: March 8, 2014

After a career-reviving year in 2013 thanks to his role in the creation of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky," Pharrell Williams scored by far the biggest hit of his solo career with "Happy," originally from the soundtrack to Despicable Me 2. The euphoric single was nominated for an Oscar and preceded the solo album GIRL, which was itself nominated for the album of the year Grammy.

Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris, "We Found Love"
No. 1 For: 10 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: November 12, 2011

Rihanna was no stranger to the top of the Hot 100 when she released "We Found Love" as the lead single to 2011's Talk That Talk. However, the exhilarating dance track, which featured then-rising DJ Calvin Harris, has become perhaps her best-known smash after spending 10 weeks in the penthouse of the Hot 100.

Robin Thicke feat. T.I. + Pharrell, "Blurred Lines"
No. 1 For: 12 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: June 22, 2013

One can easily be put off by "Blurred Line's" music video, the copyright infringement lawsuit against Marvin Gaye's family and Robin Thicke's chaotic career in its aftermath. However, there was no denying the single in the summer of 2013, when it gave Thicke an unlikely smash and was forever enshrined by a MTV VMAs performance alongside Miley Cyrus.

Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars, "Uptown Funk!"
No. 1 For: 13 weeks
Date Reached No. 1: January 17, 2015

We're a quarter of the way through 2015, and "Uptown Funk!" has ruled the Hot 100 for nearly all of it: the collaboration between Ronson and Mars is still too hot (hot damn!) for any other potential No. 1 to handle, and gives Ronson his first No. 1 single as an artist and Mars his sixth career chart-topper.
