Rema’s ‘Calm Down,’ featuring Selena Gomez, continues its record-breaking streak by achieving the longest-charting status in the history of the Billboard Pop Airplay chart.

Since its release in 2022, the song has captivated fans globally, consistently securing top positions on various charts.

The endurance of ‘Calm Down,’ spending an impressive 64 weeks on the Billboard Pop Airplay chart, underscores its popularity in the United States, where it has earned platinum status.

As it enters its 68th week on the Billboard Pop Airplay chart, ‘Calm Down’ has now surpassed Harry Styles’ ‘As It Was,’ which held the previous record of 67 weeks, making it the longest-charting song in the chart’s history.

This achievement adds to the song’s growing list of accolades, which the song has enjoyed, including being the first African track to reach the pinnacle of the Billboard Pop Airplay chart, the first African song to maintain a position for 52 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, the longest No. 1 song in the history of the Billboard Afrobeats songs chart, and the initial Afrobeats track to surpass 1 billion streams on Spotify.
