The Black Eyed Peas — "Boom Boom Pow" (twelve weeks) → "I Gotta Feeling" (fourteen weeks) (July 11, 2009)†


†The Black Eyed Peas (with both "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta Feeling") hold the chart record for 26 consecutive weeks in the #1 spot. Usher (with both "Yeah!" and "Burn") stayed for 19 weeks; Elvis Presley and Boyz II Men each had a 16-week run atop the Hot 100 with the above-listed pairs of singles ("On Bended Knee"'s six weeks at #1 were non-consecutive). The longest run for one song is also 16 weeks


Most Hot 100 entries

Glee Cast (204)
Lil Wayne (109)
Elvis Presley (108)
James Brown (91)
Ray Charles (74)
Aretha Franklin (73)
The Beatles (71) (tie)
Jay-Z (71) (tie)


Most top 40 singles

Elvis Presley (80)
Elton John (57)
Lil Wayne (55)
The Beatles (50) tie
Glee Cast (50) tie
Madonna (49)


Most top 10 singles

Madonna (38)
Elvis Presley (36) (Pre-Hot 100 charts and Hot 100)
The Beatles (34)
Stevie Wonder (28) tie
Michael Jackson (28) tie
Elton John (27) tie
Janet Jackson (27) tie
Mariah Carey (27) tie

NOTE: If Top 10 sides are considered—that is, singles whose A-sides and B-sides both charted as separate Top 10 entries—then Elvis Presley would be tied the most, with 38 Top 10 songs, and Janet Jackson would have 28. The totals for Madonna, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and so on would remain as is.


Most number-one singles

The Beatles (20)
Mariah Carey (18)
Elvis Presley (17) (Pre-Hot 100 charts and Hot 100)
Michael Jackson (13)
Madonna (12) tie
Rihanna (12)[31] tie
The Supremes (12) tie
Whitney Houston (11)
Janet Jackson (10) tie
Stevie Wonder (10) tie


NOTE: Billboard now credits the dual #1 Presley single "Don't Be Cruel/Hound Dog" as a single chart entity. However, chart statistician Joel Whitburn still lists Presley as having 18 number ones. Much of that total factors in pre-Hot 100 data. If counting from the August 1958 Hot 100 inception, Presley attained 7 number one songs.
