I was thinking about this thread while listening to Casey from 8/6/88 describe how the Beatles held the record for most hits in the top 40 at the same time. Yeah, once upon a time that sort of thing was impressive. Now it happens once a month or so.
This year of 2023 has seen the most non-English language Top 10 on the Hot 100 since the chart started in 1958: six Top 10s (and the year isn’t over yet). Previous record holder years: 2022 (with 4 non-English-language Top 10s), and tied 2019 and 2020 (with 3 non-English-language Top 10s each). As for languages themselves, current leaders for the most Top 10s on the Hot 100: Spanish (with 19 songs) and yes Korean in the runner up position with 8.
More stats from Xander Zellner, chart analyst writing the following BB Chart Beat item with help from P. Haney of Record Research + a look at all of the 35 non-English Top 10 titles as of latest Hot 100 chart date which came out this week: www.billboard.com/lists/non-english-songs-hot-100-top/
