Zedd’s ‘The Middle’ smashes Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart record for most weeks at No. 1
Why don’t you just meet Zedd…at the top of Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart? He’s been there for awhile–28 weeks, to be exact.
Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey‘s joint hit, “The Middle,” moved into its 27th week atop the Billboard chart, collecting a total of 10.3 million U.S. streams in the week ending August 9, as Nielsen Music reports. The single fronts Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales for the 25th week, selling 8,000 units.
“The Middle” surpasses formidable occupancies at the top of the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart previously held by The Chainsmokers‘ “Closer,” which peaked for 27 weeks in 2016-2017. Avicii‘s “Wake Me Up!” spent a comfortable 26 weeks in the number one slot in 2013-2014. Not far behind, The Chainsmokers and Coldplay‘s collaboration, “Something Just Like This” logged 25 weeks in 2017, while Major Lazer and DJ Snake‘s “Lean On” enjoyed a consecutive 23 week run in 2015-2016.
“The Middle” now becomes the newest record setting track within the context of the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs Chart with 28 weeks in its rearview.
