(CelebrityAccess) – Sony/ATV has pulled off a pretty impressive feat. The global music publishing company has published or co-published the No. 1 song on the Hot 100 chart in the US every single week for an entire year.
The chart-topping run involves some of Sony/ATV’s most popular and successful songwriters including Drake, who just clocked a fourth week at No. 1 with “Nice For What,” Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and Cardi B.
The year-long sequence began when “Despacito,” which was co-written by Sony/ATV songwriters Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Erika Ender, spent a record breaking 16 weeks on the chart between May and September last year – the longest stay at No. 1 in the near six-decade history of the Hot 100.
Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Martin Bandier said: “This is an incredible accomplishment by our worldwide A&R team. At Sony/ATV we strive to be successful creatively on a global basis and the fruits of our labor are shown by the diversity of our songwriters who have been No. 1 on the Hot 100 over the past year.”
