By Frank Donovan

We all know that Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” has been heating up our earbuds all through the winter. But did you know that this funky jam is in its 12th week at the top of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart? ‘Cause that’s a big deal.

The all-time record for number of weeks spent at number one on the Hot 100 isn’t far off: it’s Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day” that holds the honor, having reigned for 16 weeks. In fact, Mariah and the Boyz each have multiple entries in the exclusive club of artists who’ve spent double-digit weeks at number one, along with only a few others like Santana and the Black Eyed Peas.

In honor of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ current hot streak on the Billboard charts, we present a comprehensive look back at all the songs that have spent 10 or more weeks at number one.
