'Watermelon Sugar' becomes one of the biggest chart hits of all-time this Sunday.

Harry Styles' Watermelon Sugar' has become the second longest-running song in the charts of all-time.

As of this Sunday afternoon, the 2019 track has now spent 64 weeks in The Official Big Top 40.

It overtakes Lewis Capaldi's 'Someone You Loved' and Tones and I's 'Dance Monkey', which both managed 63 weeks.

It's now spent more weeks in the chart than any other song, with the exception of The Weeknd's 'Blinding Lights'.

That track holds the record for the song with the most weeks in the Top 40, with a total of 87 weeks in the chart.

However, for the first time since December 2019, 'Blinding Lights' wasn't in the Top 40 this Sunday!

Can Harry hold on for another 24 weeks to take the record? Well, providing The Weeknd's hit doesn't return...
