Cardi Bis holding the Top 10 fort on the music charts…

The 26-year-old half-Dominican American rap sensation’s collaboration with Maroon 5, “Girls Like You,” ties a longevity record on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Feb. 16).

The former seven-week No. 1 single holds at No. 10, logging a 33rd week in the top 10. 

The song matches Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You” for the longest top 10 run in the chart’s 60-year history. Sheeran’s smash led the list for 12 weeks in 2017.

Here’s an updated look at the songs that have spent the most time in the Hot 100’s top 10, dating to the chart’s August 4, 1958, inception:

Most weeks in Hot 100’s top 10
33, “Girls Like You,” Maroon 5 feat. Cardi B, 2018-19
33, “Shape of You,” Ed Sheeran, 2017
32, “Closer,” The Chainsmokers feat. Halsey, 2016-17
32, “How Do I Live,” LeAnn Rimes, 1997-98
31, “Uptown Funk!,” Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars, 2014-15
30, “Smooth,” Santana feat. Rob Thomas, 1999-2000

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and digital sales data and, along with all charts, will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Feb. 12). 

“Girls” charges 22-6 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 123 percent to 19,000 downloads sold in the week ending February 7, according to Nielsen Music. It also pushes 24-21 on Streaming Songs with a 13 percent boost to 20.5 million U.S. streams in the same tracking week. It keeps at No. 6 on Radio Songs (77.8 million audience impressions, down 2 percent, in the week ending Feb. 10), which it led for 16 weeks.

Maroon 5 had previously spent a high of 21 weeks in the top 10 with three hits: “Sugar” (2015), “One More Night” (2012-13) and “Moves Like Jagger,” featuring Christina Aguilera (2011).
