Marshmello’s ‘Happier’ breaks Billboard chart record
American megastar Marshmello is pure history in the making. The masked DJ and producer has broken a brand new record and it’s not a weak one. His iconic track along with Bastille, ‘Happier‘, has become the all-time longest-running number 1 track on the Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Songs Chart.
Being at the forefront of the list for an astonishing total of 34 weeks, ‘Happier’ overcame some of the very best EDM songs of the last decade. The unstoppable Marshmello track ousted none-other than the legendary ‘The Middle‘ by the German-Russian star Zedd and the American brothers Grey, which also features vocals from the amazing Texas-based singer Maren Morris. The already former leader held the position for 33 weeks, while The Chainsmokers‘ multi-award winner song ‘Closer‘ comes next in third place, having topped the chart for an accumulated 27 weeks.
While is no surprise that ‘Happier’ conquered this record, as it has undoubtedly been one of the most popular songs of 2018, it’s highly surprising that despite capturing the second position for some time, this catchy tune didn’t hit the No. 1 song at Billboard’s Hot 100 tracks chart. However, this mega-hit has achieved things any other track in the world has, like being virtually played on Fortnite.
While we wait for the next Marshmello’s gems to be released, let’s enjoy and re-listen to the record-winning track ‘Happier’ below.
