It’s the end of an era! Post Malone’s smash hit “Circles” has exited the Billboard Hot 100. After an historic 61 weeks on the chart, the song has spent its last week at the No. 19 position.
As a single off of Post Malone’s third studio album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, the song debuted on the charts on September 14, 2019. Since then, it has broken record after record and is the true definition of a smash hit.
“Circles” has spent the most weeks in the top 10 than any song in history (39). The song has spent its entirety in the top 25, the most for any song. It’s also one of the 15 songs to spend at least 60 weeks on the chart, and the first song to achieve that since Billboard debuted the recurrent rule.
Billboard explains the recurrent rule as any song that has spent 52+ weeks on the chart and suddenly ranks below the position No. 25, will be removed from the chart. Ariana Grande’s chart bomb with her album ‘Positions’ debuting 14 songs on the Hot 100 has since caused “Circles” to go recurrent.
The song ultimately became Post Malone’s fourth No. 1, and will go down in history as one of the biggest hits of all time.
