Songs That Haven’t Left the Billboard Global Charts After 100 Weeks – Billboard
Written by GRB on 09/08/2022
The latest Billboard Global 200 and Billboard Global Excl. U.S. charts, dated Aug. 13, 2022, mark 100 weeks since the worldwide song lists launched in September 2020. This week, we’re celebrating the hits that topped, lingered on, and shaped the surveys throughout their first 100 weeks. Today, we continue with the enduring songs that have lasted all 100 weeks.
Becoming a member of the 100-week club on Billboard‘s global charts does not simply require longevity – timing matters, too. Some of the longest running No. 1s that we covered yesterday – “Drivers License,” “Stay” and “As It Was,” among them – do not qualify since they were released after the charts launched. Despite never falling off, they have each tallied fewer than 100 weeks (so far …).
The songs on the triple-digit-weeks list were released in 2017, 2018, 2019 and, in one case, 2020. These are some of the most popular songs of the last half decade, those that have lingered on playlists and spread around the world.
Here’s a look at the 14 songs. ordered alphabetically, that have been here the whole time – plus a bonus track that falls one week short – with their ranks on the inaugural global charts and the current editions.
And take a listen to the biggest global hits of the last 100 weeks. We’ll be updating the playlist throughout the week as we highlight more of the charts’ most definitive hits.
