Quick Takes

Jason Mraz sets a chart record

September 01, 2009|Associated Press

Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" has had the longest run of any song in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The tune has spent 71 weeks on the Billboard singles chart. It first charted in May 2008.

Mraz's hippie-friendly jam has been around even longer. He has played it on tour for five years and says fans at live shows always responded differently to it -- and that inspired him to release the song.

The 32-year-old has spent the last two years on the road promoting his latest CD, the platinum-selling "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things." The previous record-holder, LeAnn Rimes' late-1990s hit "How Do I Live," lasted 69 weeks.
