Perry's 69-week streak in 2010-11 remains the mark to beat. Still, The Chainsmokers boast the longest run ever by a duo or group.
They got closer, just not close enough.
The Chainsmokers depart the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated July 22) after ranking in the region for 61 consecutive weeks. The EDM/pop duo falls eight weeks shy of the record set by Katy Perry, who logged 69 consecutive weeks in the Hot 100's top 10 in 2010-11.
As previously reported, The Chainsmokers' "Something Just Like This," with Coldplay, dips from No. 10 to No. 13 on the latest Hot 100, ending their streak that began on the chart dated May 21, 2016, when "Don't Let Me Down," featuring Daya, jumped 14-7, on its way to a No. 3 peak. The Chainsmokers extended their streak with "Closer," featuring Halsey (12 weeks at No. 1), "Paris" (No. 6) and "Something" (No. 3).
