To show how Malone and Jackson stack up against other artists on the chart, here are the top four:
Weeks in Top 10, Title, Artist, Year(s) in Top 10:
77, Stoney, Post Malone, 2016-18
76, Thriller, Michael Jackson, 1983-84
64, Whitney Houston, Whitney Houston, 1985-86
63, The E.N.D., The Black Eyed Peas, 2009-10
It is worth noting that the list switched from a strictly sales-based formula to one calculating multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums and streaming equivalent full lengths. This new metric over time means that Michael Jackson could have outdone Post Malone, if only streaming were around during Thriller’s release.
