'Radioactive' ties for longest hot 100 run

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Imagine Dragons has just set a new record with their hit single, "Radioactive." "Radioactive" has reached its 76th week on the survey, which now ties the band with Jason Mraz "I'm Yours."

The single comes in at No. 23 on the Hot 100 chart which is a decrease from last week when the song came in at No. 13 due to the hype around the performance from the Grammys with Kendrick Lamar which helped the band to regain momentum, Billboard reported.

The single that featured Lamar accounted for more than half of the sales for the song's digital downloads in the past week, which equaled 208,000 downloads.

Lamar and Imagine Dragons made headlines after their Grammy performance and had one of the most talked about performances on social media and after the show, Rolling Stone added.

One more week on the chart will have Imagine Dragons breaking the record that is held by Mraz.

Both "I'm Yours" and "Radioactive" have never taken the No. 1 spot on the charts. "Radioactive" landed at the third spot on the chart and "I'm Yours" peaked at No. 6.
