The song has followed you around for the last year and a bit, and it was the highlight of The Weeknd's Super Bowl Halftime Performance. "Blinding Lights" has also officially been crowned the biggest Billboard Hot 100 chart hit of the century.

The Canadian singer-songwriter’s mega hit racked up 2.2 million chart sales to top the end-of-year chart, made up of 195,000 downloads and 250 million streams. Blinding Lights spent eight weeks at Number 1 between February and April and features on his fourth studio album After Hours, which topped the Official Albums Chart last March.

Spending over one full year on the Billboard Hot 100, with many weeks in the Top 10 as the artist threatened to take the #1 position, "Blinding Lights" has been named the biggest chart hit of the century. Passing other popular songs like "Old Town Road", "Blinding Lights" has continued to reign as one of the best songs in the world, with another sales boost following The Weeknd's performance this weekend.

According to Chart Data, the song returned to the #1 position on iTunes during his performance on Sunday night, marking a huge uptick in streams as well. They are recognizing the track as the biggest of the last twenty-one years, which is a huge feat for any artist to accomplish. Congratulations to The Weeknd.

Full lyrics of “Blinding Lights” of the Weeknd


I've been tryin' to call

I've been on my own for long enough

Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe

I'm going through withdrawals

You don't even have to do too much

You can turn me on with just a touch, baby

I look around and

Sin City's cold and empty (oh)

No one's around to judge me (oh)

I can't see clearly when you're gone

And I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights

No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch

I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night

Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust

(Hey, hey, hey)

I'm running out of time

'Cause I can see the sun light up the sky

So I hit the road in overdrive, baby, oh

The city's cold and empty (oh)

No one's around to judge me (oh)

I can't see clearly when you're gone

And I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights…

“Blinding Lights” by the Weeknd

"Blinding Lights" is a song by Canadian singer the Weeknd, recorded for his fourth studio album After Hours. It was released on November 29, 2019 as the second single from the album, two days after the release of "Heartless". The Weeknd wrote and produced the song with Max Martin and Oscar Holter, with Belly and Jason Quenneville receiving additional credits.

"Blinding Lights" peaked at number one in thirty-four countries, including the United States and Canada, where it became the Weeknd's fifth number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Canadian Hot 100 for four and seven weeks, respectively. It also became his first number one single in Germany for ten weeks, the United Kingdom for eight weeks, and Australia for eleven weeks. It is his most successful single worldwide to date and currently holds the record for most weeks spent in the top 5 and top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

"Blinding Lights" has three official remixes: one by electronic band Chromatics, one by electronic dance music group Major Lazer, and one featuring singer-songwriter Rosalía.

When asked exactly what the storyline was behind this heist-y looking, high speed video, The Weekend gave a little insight into what his hit is about. "'Blinding Lights' [is about] how you want to see someone at night, and you’re intoxicated, and you’re driving to this person and you’re just blinded by streetlights," he explains in the profile. "But nothing could stop you from trying to go see that person, because you’re so lonely. I don’t want to ever promote drunk driving, but that’s what the dark undertone is.”
