Maroon 5 notches its third No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, as "One More Night" lifts 2-1 in its lucky 13th week on the chart. P!nk and fun., meanwhile, top the Hot 100 Airplay and On-Demand Songs charts, respectively.
Maroon 5 had previously reigned with "Makes Me Wonder" for three weeks in 2007 and with "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Christina Aguilera, for four weeks last year. The latter song sprang from the band's lead singer, Adam Levine, and Aguilera, having collaborated while serving as coaches during the 2011 maiden season of NBC's singing competition "The Voice."
(Despite spending its first 19 weeks in the Hot 100's top 10, Maroon 5's previous single, "Payphone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, just missed the summit, having spent six weeks peaking at No. 2. It ranks at No. 15 this week.)
"Night" moves to the Hot 100's pinnacle with top Airplay Gainer honors, fueled by an 11-5 surge on Hot 100 Airplay (84 million audience impressions, up 17%, according to Nielsen BDS) and an 8-4 charge on On-Demand Songs (705,000 on-demand streams, up 16%, according to BDS). It holds at No. 3 on Hot Digital Songs with a 2% decline to 192,000 downloads sold in the chart's tracking week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's sold 1.4 million since its release.
"'Night" unseats last week's Hot 100 leader, Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" (1-2), as the former title logs a 6% gain in overall chart points, while the latter decreases by 11%. Still, "Never" lands a fifth consecutive week atop Hot Digital Songs (226,000, down 20%) and advances 7-6 on Hot 100 Airplay (83 million, up 8%).
Aiding Maroon 5's coronation: "Never" continues not to register subscription streaming points on the Hot 100, as the track has not yet been made available to on-demand streaming services that also contribute to the Hot 100's data pool. ("Never" also, thus, has yet to appear on the On-Demand Songs ranking).
fun.'s "Some Nights" climbs 4-3 on the Hot 100, powered by a 2-1 push on On-Demand Songs (774,000, up 2%). As fun.'s debut smash "We Are Young," featuring Janelle Monae, led On-Demand Songs for the chart's first five weeks, following its March 24 inception, the trio becomes the first act to take multiple titles to No. 1 on the subscription streaming survey. "Nights" rises 16-11 on Hot 100 Airplay (69 million, up 17%), while dipping 4-5 on Hot Digital Songs (153,000 (down 4%).
Flo Rida's former two-week Hot 100 No. 1 "Whistle" slides 3-4, while P!nk's "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" enters the top five (6-5). On Hot 100 Airplay, "Blow" blasts 4-1, marking P!nk's second No. 1 and first on her own; she previously ruled Hot 100 Airplay for six weeks in 2001 with Aguilera, Lil' Kim and Mya on the quartet's "Lady Marmalade." "Blow" scores a 6% increase to 98 million (representing the first Hot 100 Airplay No. 1 to fall shy of 100 million in weekly audience since Ne-Yo's "Closer" claimed the crown with a still-impressive 88 million four years ago this week.)
"Blow" concurrently climbs 8-7 on Hot Digital Songs (116,000, up 3%) and 28-26 on On-Demand Songs (401,000, up 14%). P!nk is guaranteed more chart headlines next week, when her sixth studio set, The Truth About Love, released today, will storm the upper reaches of the Billboard 200 albums chart.
Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, Justin Bieber's "As Long as You Love Me," featuring Big Sean, rises 7-6, followed by Ellie Goulding's former No. 2-peaking "Lights" (5-7); Alex Clare's "Too Close" (10-8); Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Good Time" (9-9); and, Neon Trees' "Everybody Talks" (8-10).
The Hot 100's top 10 could welcome two titles next week that vault to the region's doorstep this week. K-Pop phenomenon Psy soars 64-11 with "Gangnam Style," which rockets 25-4 on Hot Digital Songs (188,000, up 210%). Psy appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and NBC's "Today" last week and made a cameo on the season premiere of the network's "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend (Sept. 15). "Gangnam," buoyed by the buzz of its accompanying dance featuring horse riding-influenced moves, simultaneously gallops onto On-Demand Songs at No. 43 (300,000) and Hot 100 Airplay (19 million, up 131%).
Directly below "Gangnam" on the Hot 100, Kanye West rockets 55-12 with "Clique," with Jay-Z and Big Sean. The song earns the Hot 100's top Digital Gainer tag, flying 16-2 on Hot Digital Songs (209,000, up 182%). It also opens at the No. 75 anchor position on Hot 100 Airplay (15 million, up 104%). Like P!nk, West is set to arrive high atop next week's Billboard 200 following today's release of Good Music Cruel Summer, his collaborations album featuring tracks of his own with guests and those by such R&B/hip-hop stars as Pusha T, Kid Cudi and John Legend.
