There are only a handful of artists who have topped the box office and a major Billboard chart at the same time.
Harry Styles is the latest with "Don't Worry Darling" and his song "As It Was."
He joins the likes of Prince, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Eminem.
Note: Box-office figures were compiled from BoxOfficeMojo, which only dates back to 1977.
Earlier this year, Bad Bunny's album "Un Verano Sin Ti" was No. 1 the same week that "Bullet Train" was topping the box office.
Bad Bunny's "Un Verano Sin Ti" is one of the biggest albums of the year, having spent 11 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
He also starred in the Brad Pitt action movie "Bullet Train," which was No. 1 at the domestic box office for two weeks. Both Bad Bunny's album and movie were atop their respective charts during the first week of August.
In 2006, Beyoncé topped both the box office and the singles chart simultaneously with the movie "The Pink Panther" and the song "Check on It."
"Check on It" from Destiny's Child's greatest hits album,"#1's," was originally supposed to be on "The Pink Panther" soundtrack. But it all worked out for Beyoncé.
Her song was on the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks in February and March.
During the weekend of February 10-12, "The Pink Panther," starring Steve Martin in the title role opposite Beyoncé, was No. 1 at the box office with $20.2 million.
Eminem's "8 Mile," and his song for the movie, "Lose Yourself," were both atop the box office and singles lists in 2002.
Eminem owned the end of 2002.
In November, the movie he starred in, "8 Mile," was atop the box office with a $51.2 million opening.
And his hit single from the movie's soundtrack, "Lose Yourself," reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time (for the week dated November 9, 2002).
The song stayed there for 12 consecutive weeks. It went on to win the Oscar for best original song and two Grammys, for best rap song and best male rap solo performance.
Harry Styles' hit single "As It Was" secured its 15th week atop the Billboard Hot 100 right as his movie "Don't Worry Darling" debuted at No. 1 at the box office.
Currently, Harry Styles is the biggest deal in movies and music.
"As It Was," the lead single from his third solo album, "Harry's House," first debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on the week dated April 16, 2022. It has spent 15 nonconsecutive weeks atop the chart, including the week dated September 24, 2022.
His movie, "Don't Worry Darling," was No. 1 at the box office during the last weekend of September with $19.3 million.
Jennifer Lopez's 2001 album "J.Lo" was No. 1 at the same time her rom-com "The Wedding Planner" was atop the box office.
Jennifer Lopez's second studio album came out at the perfect time.
Not only did it debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 after its release in late January 2001, but her rom-com opposite Matthew McConaughey, "The Wedding Planner," was topping the box office with $13.5 million at the same time.
In 1984, Prince was No. 1 with "Purple Rain," the song from the movie, "When Doves Cry," and the movie's soundtrack.
Decades before everyone else on this list pulled off the rare feat of being a music and box-office champ all at once, Prince did it — and he did it better than the rest.
The summer of 1984 belonged to Prince. His movie "Purple Rain" came out at the end of July and topped the box office its opening weekend with $7.7 million.
The single, "When Doves Cry," hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 at the beginning of the month and held its spot into August for five consecutive weeks.
The "Purple Rain" album also knocked off Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A." from the top of the Billboard 200 after the movie hit theaters. The soundtrack became the No. 1 album from the week dated August 4, 1984, through the start of 1985.
So Prince didn't just top one of the major Billboard charts while his movie was No. 1 — he topped them both.
