While Miley Cyrus‘s latest single, “Used To Be Young,” gave fans something new to listen to, the spotlight is still on her previous hit, “Flowers.” The chart-topping sensation continues to dominate various Billboard rankings, making history as it holds on to the top spot.
“Flowers” demonstrates remarkable tenacity by remaining at the top of the Adult Contemporary chart, a weekly ranking of the most popular songs on adult contemporary pop radio stations in the United States. Cyrus’ hit single has now reigned supreme for an impressive 25 weeks, securing another place in history.
According to Billboard, Cyrus has surpassed Adele‘s record for the longest consecutive stay at No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart by a female artist. Adele’s “Easy on Me” previously held the record, peaking at No. 1 for an incredible 24 weeks before gradually declining.
When all artists are considered, “Flowers” is the fourth-longest-running No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart’s history. Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” has spent an incredible 36 weeks at the top of the charts. With 35 weeks, The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” is close behind. Cyrus’ hit song follows “Drift Away” by Uncle Kracker and Dobie Grey, which spent 28 weeks on the charts.
“Flowers” shows no signs of slowing down, allowing Cyrus to extend her chart-topping streak on the Adult Contemporary chart in the coming weeks. With its enduring popularity, Cyrus could soon surpass Kracker and Grey, making her hit the third-longest charting No. 1 song in the tally’s history.
