India.Arie’s long-running marvelous song ‘Video’ falls off Billboard’s Hot 100 this week, but not before coming close to breaking a record.
See, the funny thing is, over the course of two chart runs, India’s single, this is the one that got her those Grammy nominations, spent a total of 31 weeks on the chart, never rising higher than No. 47.
According to the people at Billboard, they’ve noted that ‘Video’ is actually the second-longest running title to not reach beyond the top 40 regions.
The record holder belongs to Ricky Martin and his ‘The Cup of Life’ which spent 34 weeks on the chart, also in two chart runs, without advancing higher than No. 45.
