Daft Punk has officially earned their first No. 1 song, as The Weeknd's "Starboy" (which features the duo) has become the final chart-topper of the year.

In its 14th week on the Billboard Hot 100, the title track of The Weeknd's latest album saw a 49% increase to 86,000 downloads in the sales week ending on Dec. 22. (It's worth noting, a 69-cent iTunes sale during the same period helped boost sales.)

"Starboy" is still holding strong in on-demand plays with 25 million U.S. streams, maintaining the No. 3 spot on the Streaming Songs chart. 

For The Weeknd, this marks his third No. 1, following last year's "Can't Feel My Face" and "The Hills." Meanwhile, it's the first chart-topper for Daft Punk, who previously peaked at No. 2 with their 2013 hit "Get Lucky," featuring Pharrell.
