LOS ANGELES (AP), “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons has just set a new record for longest run on the Billboard Hot 100.

It just fell off the chart after 87 weeks.

It beat out the record held by Jason Mraz for “I’m Yours,” which spent 76 weeks on the chart.

Awolnation’s “Sail” nearly was the record-holder, with 79 weeks on the chart, but it was on the chart at the same time that “Radioactive” beat the “I’m Yours” record.
