The classic holiday song reached No. 1 during the 2023 holiday season. It was the first time the song reached the top, 65 years after its release in 1958.

The Billboard Hot 100 has tracked the industry’s most popular music since 1958, starting with the first-ever number one hit, Ricky Nelson“Poor little fool.” Since then, more than 1,100 songs have reached the top, although Billboard’s methodology has evolved over the years as the music industry and technology have advanced.

For example, sales were once tracked by Nielsen from Monday to Sunday, but in 2015 they moved from Friday to Thursday. Additionally, in the early years of the charts, sales carried more weight than radio airplay, because single purchases were much more common than they have been recently. This changed as full-length albums became more prevalent and sales of singles declined. Similarly, in 1998, Billboard updated its rules again to allow a song to appear on the Hot 100 even if it was stream-only and not available for purchase. In 2007, Billboard began counting streaming audio’s performance on the Hot 100. And in 2013, YouTube video streams were added to the formula, bringing the chart more in line with how music is performed. consumed in the modern era.

The Beatles holds the record for most number one hits with 20 different peaks. They are closely followed by Mariah Carey, who had 19 songs to reach the top. Carey’s 1995 duet with Boyz II Men“One Sweet Day”, set the record for most weeks at number one with 16. This record stood for over two decades before being matched by “Despacito” from Luis Fonsi And Daddy Yankee with Justin Bieber in 2017, then finally broken by Lil Nasincluding “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus topped the chart for 19 weeks in 2019. But the song named by Billboard as the number one song of all time was The weekend‘s “Blinding Lights,” which spent only four weeks at number one but broke the record for most weeks in the top 10 with over a year in that upper echelon.
