Several seasons changed since Post Malone dropped his mega-hit “Circles”, and people are still listening to it on repeat. It recently broke the record for the most weeks spent in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

“Circles” set this important milestone after being a part of the top 10 for 34 weeks. To make the whole thing even more impressive, the previous record was also held by Post Malone, who spent 33 weeks in the top 10 with the Swae Lee collaboration “Sunflower”.

This catchy tune from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack isn’t the only song to log 33 weeks in the top 10. It shares the second spot with “Girls Like You” by Maroon 5 and Cardi B, and “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran.

When it comes to the rest of the Billboard Hot 100 for this week, The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” is still at no. 1, followed by Drake’s “Toosie Slide” and Roddy Ricch’s “The Box”. DaBaby’s “Rockstar” featuring Roddy Ricch is the only new track to enter the top 10 this week.
