Miley Cyrus’s hit single “Flowers,” which was released over six months ago, continues to dominate a number of Billboard charts, including one of the three pop radio-focused lists. In just a matter of days, the singer is poised to hit another significant milestone, further solidifying the enduring popularity of her chart-topping anthem.

Billboard reports that Cyrus’s “Flowers” is set to maintain its position at the summit of the Adult Contemporary chart next week. The weekly ranking showcases the most-played songs on radio stations catering to adult contemporary audiences, essentially akin to pop music tailored for older listeners. The chart will refresh on Tuesday, September 26, and when it does, Cyrus will stand alone in her accomplishment.

When “Flowers” notches its twenty-fifth consecutive week at No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart in a few days, Cyrus will make Billboard history once again. The upcoming milestone will make her the woman with the longest reign atop the chart, passing Adele, who previously held the record.

At present, Cyrus is enjoying her twenty-fourth consecutive week at the chart’s pinnacle, placing her on par with the British superstar. Adele’s hit single “Easy on Me” once dominated the Adult Contemporary chart for a remarkable 24 weeks during its heyday a few years ago, setting a new record at the time.

Once Cyrus breaks her tie with Adele, she will rule among women, but not when all artist are taken into account. The record for the most weeks spent at No. 1 on the Adult Contemporary chart belongs to Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You,” which held the top spot for an impressive 36 weeks. Interestingly, it was a remix featuring Cardi B that propelled the song to No. 1 on many charts, but it’s the solo version that performed the best on the Adult Contemporary list, so the rapper isn’t included in this bit of history.

Sitting between Cyrus and Maroon 5’s record-setting hit are two other chart-topping singles: The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights,” which reigned over the Adult Contemporary chart for 35 weeks, and Uncle Kracker and Dobie Gray’s “Drift Away,” which held the No. 1 position for 28 weeks. Whether Cyrus can hold her position and reach the 30-week milestone remains uncertain, though it’s certainly not out of the question.
