How Do Acts Follow 10-Week Hot 100 No. 1s?

On the latest, April 10-dated Hot 100, Lil Nas X (who turns 22 today, capping quite a celebratory week) blasts in at No. 1 with “Montero (Call Me by Your Name).” The song faced the pressure of living up to, oh, only the longest-leading No. 1 in the chart’s entire history: his “Old Town Road,” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, spent a record 19 weeks on top in 2019.

To find out if topping the Hot 100 for at least 10 weeks is more often a feat too tough to follow with another No. 1 or a gateway to greater success, let’s look at all the acts – 36 total – that have topped the chart, in a lead role, with at least one song for 10 weeks or more and whether they ever returned to No. 1 with another track (in either a lead or featured role).
