Benny Blanco, Halsey & Khalid’s ‘Eastside’ Ties Longevity Record On Pop Songs Chart

The song spends a 45th week on the airplay survey.

Benny Blanco, Halsey and Khalid‘s “Eastside” ties the record for the most weeks spent on Billboard‘s Pop Songs radio airplay chart, as the collab collects a 45th week on the list (dated June 8).

The song, released on Interscope Records, matches the runs of Khalid and Normani‘s “Love Lies” and Dua Lipa‘s “New Rules.” (“Eastside” descends from No. 13 to No. 15; songs are removed once ranking below No. 15 after 20 weeks on the chart.)

The Pop Songs chart, which launched in October 1992, measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music, among its reporting panel of 164 mainstream top 40 stations.


“Eastside” led the March 2-dated Pop Songs survey, completing a record 31-week climb to the top.

Here’s an updated look at the longest-charting Pop Songs hits:

Weeks on Chart, Title, Artist, Peak Pos./Date
45 weeks, “Eastside,” Benny Blanco, Halsey & Khalid, No. 1 (one week), March 2, 2019
45 weeks, “Love Lies,” Khalid & Normani, No. 1 (two), Sept. 22, 2018
45 weeks, “New Rules,” Dua Lipa, No. 1 (four), Feb. 3, 2018
42 weeks, “I Like Me Better,” Lauv, No. 7, July 21, 2018
41 weeks, “I’ll Be,” Edwin McCain, No. 10, Oct. 17, 1998
39 weeks, “Youngblood,” 5 Seconds of Summer, No. 1 (five), Oct. 6, 2018
39 weeks, “Slide,” Goo Goo Dolls, No. 1 (two), Feb. 6, 1999
39 weeks, “Iris,” Goo Goo Dolls, No. 1 (four), July 25, 1998
39 weeks, “Another Night,” Real McCoy, No. 1 (six), Nov. 26, 1994

Notably, the top four songs on the list above have all peaked within the last year. Increased competition from streaming services appears to be helping radio play proven hits more, with “Eastside” still on Pop Songs three months after reaching No. 1.

Atop Pop Songs, Jonas Brothers‘ “Sucker” (on Republic Records) reigns for a seventh week, passing Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” for the chart’s longest command this year.

All charts will update tomorrow (June 4) on
