Making this all the more impressive is the fact that this is the first country song to ever achieve this feat, with the Sneedville megastar consolidating his status as the genre's biggest artist today.
‘Last Night’ has so far spent sixteen nonconsecutive weeks at the pinnacle of the Billboard Hot 100, setting a new record as the longest-running No. 1 for a non-collaboration.
If Morgan Wallen's ‘Last Night’ can return to the top spot on the Hot 100 for another three weeks, the ‘Thought You Should Know’ hitmaker will equal Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ ‘Old Time Road’ for the lengthiest spell at No. 1 of all time.
However, Wallen was displaced this week at No. 1 by Oliver Anthony's viral and controversial single, ’Rich Men North of Richmond’, which has drawn criticism for its portrayal of those on welfare.
The fact that ‘Last Night’ has been announced as the US’ most-streamed song of the summer on Spotify once again highlights the groundbreaking success of the One Thing At A Time anthem. In July, the track became the first song ever to rack up one billion streams in a single year.
