Post Malone’s “Circles” Breaks Record For Most Weeks In The Top 10

Post Malone’s “Circles” Breaks Record For Most Weeks In The Top 10

It’s been a banner week for Post Malone. Not only did Posty put on one of the best livestreams of the COVID-19 era last Friday — a full-band Nirvana tribute with Travis Barker on drums that did justice to the source material and raised millions for the World Health Organization’s fight against coronavirus — he also just set a new Billboard record.

Circles,” a lite pop-rock track from the rapper’s world-conquering Hollywood’s Bleeding album that became his fourth #1 hit on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart, has now lasted longer in the chart’s top 10 than any other song. By charting at #6 this week, “Circles” notches its 34th straight week in the Hot 100’s top 10, pushing it out of a four-way tie at the 33-week mark that also included Posty’s own Swae Lee collaboration “Sunflower,” Maroon 5 and Cardi B’s “Girls Like You,” and Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You.”

It’s pretty wild that two of the four longest-running top 10 hits are both from the same album, but such is the nature of long-tail success in the streaming ’20s — especially for a multi-format hit like “Circles,” which has thrived at Spotify and Top 40 radio alike. Revisit the song’s medieval-themed video below.
