Maroon 5's 'One More Night' Ties For Hot 100's Longest No. 1 of The Year
Maroon 5's 'One More Night' Ties For Hot 100's Longest No. 1 of The Year

The song matches the nine-week reign of Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe.' Plus, a reinvented '80s hit returns to the top 10 courtesy of Flo Rida.

Maroon 5's "One More Night" spends a ninth week atop the Billboard Hot 100, tying for the year's longest reign.

The song equals the nine-week command of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," Billboard's Song of the Summer. It also passes Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know," featuring Kimbra, for the year's longest No. 1 run for a song sporting male vocals.

Here's a look at 2012's longest-leading No. 1 Hot 100 hits, ranked by weeks on top:

9, "One More Night," Maroon 5
9, "Call Me Maybe," Carly Rae Jepsen
8, "Somebody That I Used To Know," Gotye featuring Kimbra
6, "We Are Young," fun. featuring Janelle Monae
3, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," Taylor Swift
3, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," Kelly Clarkson
2, "Whistle," Flo Rida
2, "Set Fire to the Rain," Adele
2, "Sexy and I Know It," LMFAO
2, "We Found Love," Rihanna featuring Calvin Harris (*spent eight weeks at No. 1 in November/December 2011
1, "Part of Me," Katy Perry

In besting Gotye's No. 1 run and matching Jepsen's, Maroon 5 gains a measure of revenge on both acts. The group's prior single, "Payphone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, peaked at No. 2 for six weeks. "Somebody" blocked it from the summit for the first of those frames, while "Maybe" did the same for five more.

"Night" remains atop the Hot 100 thanks to continued gains in radio audience and streaming. The track logs a sixth week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart with a less than 1% increase to 136 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS, and increases by 5% to 826,000 on-demand streams, according to BDS, despite dipping 3-4 on On-Demand Songs. On the Hot Digital Songs chart, "Night" drops 4-5 (125,000, down 7%, according to Nielsen SoundScan).

While Maroon 5 maintains its Hot 100 dominance, the top two welcomes a change after a seven-week logjam of "Night" at No. 1 and PSY's "Gangnam Style" at No. 2. The Korean rapper's breakout smash slides to No. 5 (after peaking at No. 2 for seven weeks), although it leads Hot Digital Songs for a fifth frame (188,000, down 17%). It relinquishes its five-week lead on On-Demand Songs, dropping to No. 3 (855,000, down 1%) and tumbles 14-22 on Hot 100 Airplay (44 million, down 22%).

Rihanna's "Diamonds" takes PSY's place in the Hot 100's runner-up spot, jumping from No. 4 with top Digital Gainer honors. It lifts 2-1 on On-Demand Songs (959,000, up 19%) to become her first leader on the list (which launched in March) and rises 5-3 on Hot Digital Songs (144,000, up 19%) and 7-4 on Hot 100 Airplay (97 million, up 12%).

As "Night" remains essentially even in overall Hot 100 chart points and "Diamonds" gains by a hefty 16%, trailing the former title by approximately 3,000 points, Rihanna could land her 12th Hot 100 No. 1 as soon as next week.

Ke$ha's "Die Young" bounds 6-3 on the Hot 100 as chart's top Airplay Gainer. It jumps 11-7 on Hot 100 Airplay (85 million, up 19%), becoming her sixth top 10 on the tally, and pushes 4-2 on On-Demand Songs (894,000, up 15%). "Young" descends 3-4 on Hot Digital Songs (138,000, down 1%), although it passes 1 million downloads sold to date.

Above "Style" on the Hot 100, fun.'s "Some Nights" retreats from its No. 3 peak to No. 4, although it bullets at No. 2 on Hot 100 Airplay (104 million, up 2%) and No. 5 on On-Demand Songs (810,000, up 10%).

Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" reaches a new peak on the Hot 100, climbing 7-6, followed by Taylor Swift's former three-week No. 1 "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" (5-7), Ne-Yo's "Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)" (10-8) and Alex Clare's "Too Close" (9-9).

Rounding out the top tier, Flo Rida nets his ninth Hot 100 top 10, as "I Cry" advances 12-10, fueled by a 17-13 ascent on Hot 100 Airplay (60 million, up 17%) and a 46-29 vault on On-Demand Songs (416,000, up 33%). The club-ready song reinvents R&B singer Brenda Russell's sultry ballad "Piano in the Dark," which rose to No. 6 on the Hot 100 in 1988. ("Cry" actually samples a sample: Dutch duo Bingo Players first retooled "Piano" as "Cry (Just a Little)," which reached No. 15 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay in March.) "It's pretty cool that artists like Flo Rida and Bingo Players can be inspired to interpret a song like 'Piano in the Dark' in completely new genres," Russell recently told Billboard. "As an artist and writer, it's the highest compliment we can be paid."
