- Peaked at #1 14 weeks in Billboard Hot 100. #1 in UK Singles Chart. I am not going to list all the other countries where it was #1- every country listed- it was #1- I have never seen anything like that. Boyz II Men had just broken Debby Boone’s record of 10 weeks in a row at #1- a record from 1977 to 1992– then just a couple weeks later- “I Will Always Love You’ starts its run at #1- which breaks the just set record- going 14 weeks in a row- from November 28. 1992- March 6, 1993. Note in 1993 Billboard changed the formula for determining their charts. ‘I Will Always Love You’- written by Dolly Parton in 1973- her farewell song for Porter Waggoner. I liked Dolly’s original over Houston’s. This was Whitney Houston’s 10th #1- she would only have one more.
