Update Needed on "Billboard's Hot 100 Achievements" Page

On the page titled Billboard Hot 100 Achievements is the following bulleted item (towards the end of the page):

  • The number one hit with the shortest running time (1:37) is Maurice Williams and the Zodiacs’ “Stay.” The shortest charting record of the rock era was 1964’s “Little Boxes” by the Womenfolk, which was exactly one minute long, and reached number eighty-three.

The second statement in that item is no longer the case (for shortest-charting record). Because on the week ending 29 October 2016, a novelty single titled “PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen)” by Japanese singer/songwriter/comedian Piko-Taro debuted on the Hot 100 chart. Its total length was just 45 seconds (0:45). This single peaked at No. 77 and spent a total of four weeks on the chart.



Thanks for this. That page is overdue for an update. I’ll put that on my to-do list. :slight_smile:
