1000 No. 1s: Watch Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler Chat About Topping The Hot 100

1000 No. 1s Video Series Day 27:
Steven Tyler Talks About Aerosmith Topping the Hot 100

2011 was the year that Billboard celebrated the 1000th No. 1 song on the Hot 100. As we look back on this year in music, we’re celebrating that milestone with a month-long series of videos — one for each day of December — chatting with 31 of the hitmakers who rocketed to the top of the chart since its inception in 1958. SEE THE FULL CHART HERE.

On day 27 of our 1,000 Hot No. 1s video series, we move on from yesterday’s late ’80s Bobby Brown charttopper, “My Prerogative,” and fast-forward to a ’90s rock ballad as we chat with Steven Tyler about Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.” “It was a shock, not because we had our first No. 1,” Aerosmith frontman Tyler says. “But because it was our only No. 1. I thought that [of] all those other Aerosmith songs, at least one or two did.”
“I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing,” which was penned by famed songwriter Diane Warren and prominently featured in the “Armageddon” soundtrack, spent four weeks at No. 1 beginning Sept. 5. 1998, knocking Brandy and Monica’s “The Boy Is Mine” out of the top slot. Tyler explains that part of the tune’s success was the “the magic of [producer] Jerry Bruckheimer calling me up and saying, ‘We’re doing a movie called ‘Armageddon.’ Your daughter [Liv Tyler] is in it. And I want four Aerosmith songs plus the one you did with Diane Warren.’”

Be sure to come back tomorrow (Dec. 28) for the next 1000 No. 1s video: Enrique Iglesias talks about his No. 1s, “Be With You” and “Bailamos.”
