"Thrift Shop" Sets Record on R&B/Hip-Hop...

Posted by: Joe DeAndrea (04/05/13)
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" has set the record for the longest running #1 song on Billboard's "R&B/Hip-Hop" chart at 12 weeks. The previous record was held by DJ Khaled's "I'm On One," which stayed at #1 for 11 weeks back in 2011.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" picks up a 12th week atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, setting the mark for the longest-running No. 1 rap song in the chart's history. DJ Khaled's "I'm On One," featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, previously held the record with 11 weeks in 2011 and is the only other rap song to post double-digit weeks at the top.

this chart has been around since 2005 I believe. the overall "rap/r&b" category on billboard has been around since 1942 but since it has a different name now I guess the records don't count, cause the overall record is a louis jordan song from 1946. charted 18 weeks in a row.

but yeah. I like charts. haha.

At least "I'm On One" was actually a great song.

Ben & Ryan were extremely chill when I talked with them last year - truly proud of their success.

Good for them. Thrift Shop doesn't even crack the top five tracks on The Heist in my opinion.
