Panic! At The Disco breaks ten-year radio record
Panic! At The Disco broke a major radio record in the United States, this has been confirmed.
The group Brendon Urie-Erie-Led usurped Maroon 5 and their single “Girls Like You” by Cardi B to achieve the feat.
The band’s single ‘High Hopes’ may have been released on May 23, 2018, but it still tops the charts, according to Billboard. The track has just marked its 15th consecutive week at the top of the company’s chart for adult pop song radio shows, making it the number one longest song of this decade.
“Girls Like You” previously held the record in 2018, racking up 14 weeks atop the same ranking.
Panic! At The Disco is not the only group to have remained number one for 15 weeks. No Doubt did the same in 1996 with ‘Don’t Speak’, while The Fray also dominated for as long in 2006 with ‘How To Save A Life’. The oldest number one on the adult pop song chart is still Santana’s “Smooth,” who stayed there for 25 weeks.
Earlier this month (March 18), the group shared their new video for ‘Dancing’s Not A Crime’. The clip features Uriah’s puppet alter-ego, The Amazing Beebo. The puppet has already appeared in the video for “Hey Loom Ma, I Made It”.
Panic! At The Disco is currently on tour in the UK, with two dates remaining. A portion of the money from each ticket sold will be donated to Hopes Great Hopes Foundation.
Other UK tour dates are as follows:
28 – London, O2 Arena
30 – Manchester, Arena
