Baauer's unlikely No. 1 single on the Hot 100 has led to a slightly less unlikely co-headlining tour with gonzo Detroit MC Danny Brown. The "Worst of Both Worlds" tour will kick off on April 9 in Houston, Tex.

Both artists are performing at Coachella 2013, and have plotted seven other West Coast dates around the two weekends of the Indio, Calif. festival. Later this year, Brown will release his next album, "Old," through Fool's Gold, while Baauer will perform at Sonar, Roskilde, Hideout and more European festivals following Coachella.
"Harlem Shake" spends a second week at No. 1 on this week's Hot 100, after debuting in the penthouse on last week's tally. The viral smash, which has benefited from YouTube streaming data now factoring into the Hot 100 (and other genre charts), earned the top Digital Gainer award on the Hot 100, with a 13% gain to 297,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
