WOW

 

This week, Dua Lipa's song "New Rules" became the longest charting song in pop radio HISTORY. The chart began in 1992. 

This week the song spent a 41st week on Billboard's Pop Radio chart. That is about double the time a typical hit spends on the chart. 

This is a big accomplishment. AND it's still charting. It's at #13 this week. It has to stay in the top 20 to stay on the chart. 

She does currently share this title with Edwin McCain's "I'll Be" from 1998. 

 

Here's how it charted so far: 


New Rules (2017/2018) *22 weeks in Top 10*
1st Week: #38
2nd Week: #33
3rd Week: #29

It's probably like the BB100, where once you've been on the chart for 20~ weeks or however many, you have to maintain a high position or you get kicked off

i mean that...

 

Billboard rules are that once a song has spent 20 weeks on this chart, the song must be in the Top 20 to be able to stay on the Top 40 chart.

seriously who is she?

is she that good?

I always hear people talking about her in pop music forums but I have yet to hear about her in real life or hear a song

I guess she is not that big in Latin America

You're not the only one :ph34r:

I think it's annoying tbh :spin: just like any other track by the new pop girls. And that's not shade towards female artists 'cause the boys aren't even on my radar :ph34r: Bebe, Dua, 5H, etc, they just don't do it as well as the queens that rose in the 2000's/early 2010's and they certainly can't stand up to the quality that Gaga puts out. The quality I've gotten used to! It's just commercial pop without the endearing personalities being on display for the GP to see. At least Britney saves face by being adorable, down to Earth, and has a catalog of BOPS. And the next person that comes up here trying to sing in that indie girl/boy voice :giveup: I'm still mad at MO for ruining Cold Water :giveup: Like, why are you recording with a mouth full of cotton balls?! :grr: If you can't really sing then step away from the microphone and make room for a bitch with talent! :grr:

Spoiler

Imo, obviously :ph34r: shade meant but not hatefully :ph34r: To each their own.

Anyway, OT: Call me when she writes from the heart, sings from the soul (and diaphragm), and gives her performances 150%. Then I'll stan :vegas:

Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak whispers.
