"Despacito" Scores 10th week at #1, Ed Sheeran ties Top 5 record

Universal Music Latino / Raymond Braun / SchoolBoy / Def Jam / UMLE / Republic RecordsThere's no stopping "Despacito." The Luis Fonsi/Daddy Yankee/Justin Bieber collabo has just hit its 10th week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.   It's just the 35th song ever to rack up at least 10 weeks at the top in the entire history of the chart, which dates back to 1958.

"Despacito" is the longest-running #1 since Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You," which spent 12 weeks at #1 earlier this year.  And speaking of that song, it's just tied the record for the most weeks in the top 5: 27.  The Chainsmokers just set that record recently with "Closer;" now Ed has matched it.

But "Despacito" needs to hang on for seven more weeks if it hopes to set the all-time record for most weeks at #1.  The current record is held by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day."  That one topped the chart for 16 weeks from 1995 to 1996.

Finally, Shawn Mendes' latest hit "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back" rises to #8, giving the Canadian singer his third top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, following "Stitches" and "Treat You Better."
