How did their groove-worthy house music not pay off for so long?
After eight weeks of staying at the No. 2 spot, ‘Starboy’ with The Weeknd and Daft Punk has finally reached the pinnacle of Billboard’s Hot 100 and defeated Rae Sremmurd’s ‘Black Beatles’.
When the eye-catchy duo of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter’s Random Access Memories was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronica Album in 2014, one would think they have produced innumerable No.1’s throughout their musical journey that started as early as 1996.
Back in 2013, the song “Get Lucky” was likely to reach your eardrums, even in your sleep, and it was Daft Punk’s collaboration with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. You would have thought they were a huge name in the industry because of their characteristic music and just the right flavor of dance music you need in your life to turn even the gloomiest day into a chirpy one! “Get Lucky” only reached as high as No. 2 in the Billboard charts and Daft Punk never had a No.1 single, until now!
2016 was a year of good music, don’t you think ? How else would we have enjoyed “Starboy” and seen it reach the top of music royalty? While this is the first time for Daft Punk, it is just another feather in The Weeknd’s cap, giving him his third chart-topping hit following two of his multiplatinum-recording singles “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face”.
The track also holds the No. 3 spot on the Streaming Songs chart and the No. 4 spot on the Radio Songs chart !
