Blinding Lights by Canadian pop star The Weeknd has become the number one song of all time on the Billboard music charts.
According to Billboard, Blinding Lights has now spent 90 weeks at the top 100 chart.
The song ousted Chubby Checker's 1960s hit, The Twist, to clinch No. 1.
The Billboard 100 has listed the best songs based on radio plays, sales and streaming for the past 63 years.
The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, released Blinding Lights in November 2019. By September 2021, it had been streamed over 2.5 billion times on Spotify.
Its popularity was aided by a TikTok dance challenge during the pandemic and The Weeknd 's performance by during Super Bowl halftime in 2021.
Ironically, Chubby Checkers' 'The Twist ' was also a dance craze, but has now been relegated to second place.
