Camila Cabello’s ‘Havana’ Logs Longest Run Atop Pop Songs Chart for a Lead Female in Five Years

At seven weeks, the song boasts the longest reign for a female artist in a lead role since Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” in 2013.

Camila Cabello‘s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, tops Billboard‘s Pop Songsradio airplay chart for a seventh week, marking the longest reign for a song by a solo female in a lead role in nearly five years.

The song boasts the longest such command since Taylor Swift‘s “I Knew You Were Trouble,” which also led for seven weeks, beginning on the chart dated Feb. 2, 2013.

The last song by a lead female to rule Pop Songs for more than seven weeks? Rihanna‘s “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris: eight weeks in 2011-12.

The Pop Songs chart (the latest of which is dated Jan. 13) measures total weekly plays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music, among its reporting panel of 161 mainstream top 40 stations.

Here is a look at the longest-leading Pop Songs No. 1s in the 2010s among all acts:

7, “California Gurls,” Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg, July 3, 2010

The longest command in the Pop Songs chart’s entire 25-year history belongs to Ace of Base’s “The Sign”: 14 weeks at No. 1 in 1994. Three songs share the mark for the longest rule among lead females: 11 weeks each for Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn” (1998), Donna Lewis “I Love You Always Forever” (1996) and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day” (1995-96).

“Havana” is from Cabello’s debut solo album Camila, due Friday (Jan. 12). The follow-up single from the former Fifth Harmony member, “Never Be the Same,” bullets at No. 32 on Pop Songs.
