In 1983, Michael Jackson almost became the third artist in chart history to replace himself at #1 with "Billie Jean" and "Beat It". The first two were Elvis Presley and the Beatles.

Kenny Rogers "Islands In The Stream" with Dolly Parton was the last country song to hit #1 on the Hot 100 until Lonestar's "Amazed" in 2000, a 17-year run without a country song hitting #1 on the chart!
