Maroon 5 Ties One Republic for Most Weeks in Top Three on Hot 100

Maroon 5's single "Payphone", featuring rapper Wiz Khalifa, has seemingly tied up for the single with the most weeks spent in the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. The song never peaked atop the chart, at No. 1, as it dipped from Nos. 3-5 this week on the tally. The tune spent fifteen weeks in the top three bouncing between positions 2 and 3. 

If "Payphone" does not receive a call back to the top three, it will have equaled the top three runs of these non-No. 1s: LeAnn Rimes' "How Do I Live," Shania Twain's "You're Still the One" and Timbaland featuring OneRepublic's "Apologize." All four songs peaked at No. 2.
 
It could have been worse -- at least "Payphone" reached No. 2. There are those hits that stall out at No. 3 for weeks upon weeks, but never go higher. Take Real McCoy's 1994 hit "Another Night," for example. The song spent 11 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 3, but never went any higher. In turn, it secured the record as the song with the most weeks stuck at No. 3 in the Hot 100's history.
