The Weeknd remains one of the most popular singers in the modern music industry and that is largely due to the themes shown in his albums, notably his After Hours album.
The Weeknd has already cemented himself as one of the all-time greats, being regularly discussed among pop music’s greatest icons. His After Hours album featured Blinding Lights, which is for many, the best song on the album.
The song, which is an eighties-inspired anthem, earned the singer Weeknd the most successful single of his career. The song became the most-streamed on Spotify back in 2020 and currently sits at #2 in overall streams, just behind Ed Sheeran’s Shape Of You.
Now it seems Blinding Lights has broken yet another record. In a post shared by XO co-founder Amir “Cash” Esmailian, who also co-manages the singer, it was confirmed that Blinding Lights has become the first solo song to spend eighty weeks on the Hot 100 charts and it is unlikely it will ever drop from the charts anytime soon.
The Weeknd continues to shine as one of the greatest musicians of this generation and likely, more generations to come. We will have to see when he will be dropping his next album for fans to enjoy.
