SZA‘s “Snooze” has been a massive hit since its release in late 2022, but the singer has now celebrated a new milestone for the track — it’s the only song to spend the entirety of 2023 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Snooze” is No. 20 on the chart for the week of December 30. This marks the song’s 54th week on the chart, which includes the final two weeks of 2022 and all 52 weeks of 2023

On Thursday (December 28), The Shade Room posted on Instagram to commemorate that accomplishment, noting that “Snooze” was the only song to hit the benchmark of remaining on the singles chart for the entire calendar year.

SZA hopped in the comments section to show gratitude to her fans.

I’m so grateful to everyone in this comment section that streamed and supported me !! GOD BLESS YOU ! Thank you so much,” she wrote.
