Hey, this is crazy: Carly Rae Jepsen 's "Call Me Maybe" is no longer 2012's longest-running #1 hit.  It's now tied with Maroon 5 's "One More Night," which has just racked up its ninth week on top of the Billboard Hot 100

Oddly enough, earlier this year, "Call Me Maybe" blocked Maroon 5's previous hit, "Payphone" from the #1 spot for five weeks, holding it at #2.  It never did get to hit #1, but "One More Night" is more than making up for it now.

In addition, Maroon 5's hit now has a chance of sailing past Carly Rae's and racking up a 10th week at #1, which would make "One More Night" the all-time leader for 2012, with "Call Me Maybe" in second place.  The song that spent the next longest time at #1 on the chart this year is Gotye 's "Somebody That I Used to Know," which ruled for eight weeks.

Elsewhere on the chart , Taylor Swift 's album Red is #1 for a third straight week.  In at #2 is Now 44 , while Ne-Yo 's new album R.E.D. debuts at #4.  It's his fifth straight top 10 album.  Finally, Aerosmith , led by ex- American Idol judge Steven Tyler , debuts at #5 with Music from Another Dimension!, the legendary band's first album of new material since 2001.
