Number of weeks spent as #1: 2

In 1984, the two acts that held top position the longest were both breakout stars. Julio Iglesias had found immense popularity in the Latin market, but didn’t cross over into the mainstream North American market until his collaboration with Willie Nelson on “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before.” Mother-daughter duo The Judds also hadn’t found success before they released “Why Not Me,” which closed out 1984 as the title-holder.
