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.
