Brando now has the distinction of holding the #1 position at radio for longer than any other artist in 2020, as ‘Look Into My Eyes’ hits 10 weeks atop the TMN Hot 100 powered by Radio Monitor.

The American singer-songwriter breaks a nine-week stint set by The Weekend’s ‘Blinding Lights’ earlier this year, and what’s more, Brando’s unbroken streak has reached 10 consecutive weeks.

The tune is out via TMRW Music label Hussle Recordings and follows his 2017 Loud Luxury hit ‘Body’, which hits its own milestone this week with two years on the Hot 100 (104 weeks).

TMRW Music head of A&R, Chris Fraser, tells TMN the response has been “overwhelming”.

“Coming off the back of a huge record like ‘Body’, we certainly felt confident this one could resonate with Australian radio and help establish Brando’s career, but to see it hit this crazy milestone is really amazing,” Fraser said.

“We’d always known that ‘Body’ had an extremely low (if not apparently non-existent) burn rate, but for it to have endured this much on playlists is almost hard to fathom!

“With plenty more super-strong material just around the corner from Brando, we’re looking forward to working with his team to break many more hits out of Australia.”

While Brando remains at the top of the chart, there is plenty of movement below him with Sia’s ‘Together’ (#3), Jawsh 685 & Jason Derulo’s ‘Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat’) (#4) and ‘Some Say by ‘Nea’ (#6) all hitting new peaks within the Top 10.

“Australia has really lead the way on ‘Look Into My Eyes’ globally,” Anna Fitzgerald added, director of publicity & promotions at TMRW Music.

“It’s amazing to see an indie release get so much support from Australian radio and be the biggest song of the year! Thanks to every station who played it and made it #1 for 10 straight weeks!”
