Glass Animals’ hit song “Heat Waves” first claimed the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart a few weeks ago, and has remained at No. 1 since then. As of the new chart dated April 9, “Heat Waves” remains at No. 1 for the fifth week.
The song continues to make history for British groups tying for the sixth-most weeks spent at No. 1 on the Hot 100. It’s currently behind only The Beatles’ “Hey Jude,” The Police’s “Every Breath You Take,” Bee Gees’ “Night Fever,” UB40’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” and The Beatles’ “I Want To Hold Your Hand.”
“Heat Waves” also has set a new record for the most weeks at No. 1 for a song by a group on the Billboard 200 Global Chart, now leading for six weeks in a row. In addition, the song holds No. 1 on Billboard’s Radio Songs Chart for the fourth week in a row.
Elsewhere on the chart, Latto had a major week as “Big Energy” became her first top-10 hit, rising from No. 11 all the way up to No. 3. JID landed his first-ever top-5 song thanks to his Imagine Dragons collaboration “Enemy,” which rose from No. 7 to No. 5 this week.
