The Chainsmokers Share A Record With The Beatles And The Bee Gees

The Chainsmokers are only the third duo or group ever to have three songs simultaneously in the Hot 100.

Alex Pall and Drew Taggart make history this week. Their new collaboration with Coldplay on "Something Just Like This" launched from No. 56 to No. 5 and puts them in prestigious company with The Beatles And The Bee Gees as one of the only duos/groups in the chart’s 40-year history to achieve three Top 10 hits at the same time on the Billboard Hot 100. "Paris" sits at No. 7 and and "Closer" featuring Halsey comes in at No. 10.

Numbers jargon from Billboard:

Starting with The Chainsmokers, the duo of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart infuses the Hot 100's top 10 with its Coldplay collab "Something Just Like This," up from No. 56 to No. 5, "Paris" (6-7) and "Closer" (5-10), all released on Disruptor/Columbia Records. The Chainsmokers join elite company as only the third duo or group to log at least three concurrent top 10s, following The Beatles and Bee Gees, dating to the Hot 100's Aug. 4, 1958, launch.

At the height of early Beatlemania, The Beatles tallied 10 weeks in 1964 with at least three titles in the Hot 100's top 10 at the same time, highlighted by two weeks with five hits; on April 4, 1964, all five ranked between Nos. 1 and 5, marking the only week that an act has monopolized the entire top five. Bee Gees danced to three simultaneous top 10s for two weeks in 1978, all from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. As the brother trio last managed the achievement on March 4, 1978, until this week it had been 39 years and two weeks since a duo or group had tripled up in the top 10.

It's worth clarifying this does not include solo artists. For instance, Justin Bieber had last earned the honor when three of his songs off Purpose – "Love Yourself," "Sorry" and "What Do You Mean?" – charted simultaneously in the Top 10. Nonetheless, quite a feat.
