“Uptown Funk” just won’t funking move from the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The Bruno Mars/Mark Ronson collaboration is #1 for an 11th week.
The song is now only the 19th #1 in the history of the chart — and there have been more thant a thousand — that have been #1 for at least that many weeks. It’s only the second this decade: the last one was “Blurred Lines,” which toppped the chart for 12 weeks in June of 2013.
Elsewhere on the chart, Sam Smith‘s new single “Lay Me Down” jumps from #58 to #8 , mostly thanks to a new remix featuring John Legend. This is Sam’s third top 10 hit from his album In the Lonely Hour. It’s the first album by a solo male artist to spin off three top 10 hits since Eminem‘s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 did it in 2013 and 2014.
“Lay Me Down” is actually Sam’s fourth top 10 hit overall, since he was also featured on “Latch” by Disclosure, which reached #7 last summer.
