With their success over the past 2 years, The Chainsmokers were quickly breaking records for Billboard's hot songs chart. After reaching the #2 position for most consecutive weeks in the Top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100, The Chainsmokers aimed to break Katy Perry's 69-week streak.
Unfortunately, as The Chainsmokers got ‘closer,' they failed to fully break into the #1 position. After 61 consecutive weeks in the charts, The Chainsmokers have officially fallen from the Billboard Top 10 chart, cementing their 61-week streak as the #2 position.
Most Consecutive Weeks in the Billboard Hot 100's top 10

51 weeks, Drake, 2015-16
48 weeks, Ace of Base, 1993-94
46 weeks, Rihanna, 2010-11
The Chainsmokers do now hold the title for the longest top 10 streak on the Hot 100s for duos.
Congratulations to The Chainsmokers on this huge accomplishment.
