Dua Lipa’s ‘New Rules’ ties for longest charting pop song ever

Dua Lipa has yet again made headlines as her bop ‘New Rules’ has tied the record for longest charting song on Billboard’s Pop Songs chart.

The song charted for 41 weeks straight, tying with with Edwin McCain’s ‘I’ll Be’ in 1998; I’ll Be peaked at #5,

New Rules peaked at #1, taking out the top spot for four weeks in February.

The chart is ranked via mainstream top 40 radio airplay detections as measured by Nielsen Music.

New Rules has now gone 5x platinum in Australia.

The next pop empress

Dua Lipa has been a force to be reckoned with since she burst onto the scene with her singles ‘Be The One‘ in 2015 and ‘Hotter Than Hell‘ in 2016. These tracks were inescapable on radio worldwide.

Her appeal is widespread and easy to understand; relatable lyrics, an incredible voice, and a strong personality create the perfect storm. She has a strong message of self-love, empowerment and acceptance – a positive message sorely needed in the pop world right now.
