Maroon 5, Mariah Carey Tie For Most Weeks Spent in Top 5, 'One More Night' Rocks Hot 100

Maroon 5's No. 2-peaking "Payphone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, descends 5-7 in its 18th week on the Hot 100 and its first below the top five. Its sum of 17 weeks lodged in the top five from its debut equals the Hot 100 record; Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's "One Sweet Day" spent its first 17 weeks in the bracket in 1995-96, including its first 16 at No. 1 (the longest command in the Hot 100's archives) and the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" likewise logged 17 weeks in the top five from its start in 2009, including 14 at No. 1.

But, wait, there's more Maroon 5 news: "Payphone" follow-up "One More Night" darts 15-9 with the Hot 100's top Digital and Streaming Gainer badges, rising 7-4 on Digital Songs (170,000, up 26%) and 45-28 on On-Demand Songs (345,000, up 33%), as well as 43-25 on Radio Songs (40 million, up 29%). After notching its first two Hot 100 top 10s ("This Love" and "She Will Be Loved") in 2004 and adding its third ("Makes Me Wonder") in 2007, Maroon 5 has doubled its top 10 total with its last three radio-promoted singles. Prior to "Payphone" and "Night," the group's "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Christina Aguilera, reigned for four weeks in September/October 2011.

In between Maroon 5's two concurrent Hot 100 top 10s, Justin Bieber posts the chart's other arrival into the upper tier, as "As Long as You Love Me," featuring Big Sean, climbs 12-8 to become Bieber's fourth top 10 (and Big Sean's second). The cut zooms 8-6 on Digital Songs (145,000, up 12%), 33-18 on Radio Songs (46 million, up 20%) and 10-9 on On-Demand Songs (554,000, up 12%). Bieber first reached the Hot 100's top 10 with "Baby" (No. 5) in 2010 and returned to the region with "Never Say Never," featuring Jaden Smith (No. 8), last year and his previous radio single, "Boyfriend," which reached No. 2 in April.
