As previously reported, Flo Rida's "Whistle" blows Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" out of the Billboard Hot 100's top spot after nine weeks, while Mumford & Sons and Taylor Swift debut with the first singles from their highly-anticipated forthcoming albums.
Who else makes notable moves this week on the Hot 100 and other song charts? See more below.
-- Mariah Carey: While the diva's new single "Triumphant (Get 'Em)" sells 23,000 downloads in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, that's not enough to generate a debut on the Hot 100.
Owed to both its modest sales and airplay, the cut misses out on becoming her 45th chart entry. It's the first taste of Carey's upcoming studio album, tentatively due in March 2013. Though, the song's sales could jump in the coming weeks: she'll perform Sept. 5 on NBC's pregame show before the New York Giants/Dallas Cowboys football game.
The rap-heavy "Triumphant" (featuring Rick Ross and Meek Mill) has had a relatively low-key promotional push by its label, Island Def Jam. So far it has only been serviced to rhythmic and urban radio stations. For the week ending Aug. 14, it garnered two million in radio audience from 77 monitored stations included in the Hot 100's radio panel (of more than 1,200 outlets).
While there are dance remixes of the song without Ross and Meek Mill -- which could be more suitable for top 40 airplay -- they have yet to be serviced to radio nor released digitally.
-- Maroon 5: "One More Night" halves its Hot 100 rank, blasting 30-15 as the chart's top Digital Gainer. The group's sixth top 10 on Hot Digital Songs bounds 16-7 with a 71% gain to 134,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It keeps climbing on Hot Airplay (54-43; 31 million all-format audience impressions, up 26%, according to Nielsen BDS), Mainstream Top 40 (20-18) and Adult Top 40 (24-21).
-- Alex Clare: "Too Close" lifts 24-21 on the Hot 100, aided by a 53-46 push on Hot 100 Airplay (29 million, up 18%). His introductory single concurrently crowns the Alternative airplay chart (4-1), making Clare the fourth lead act to reach the list's top spot with a maiden chart entry this year, following Gotye ("Somebody That I Used to Know"), fun. ("We Are Young") and Of Monsters and Men ("Little Talks"). One act reigned on a first try last year: Foster the People, with "Pumped Up Kicks."
-- Nicki Minaj: The rapper scores her 20th top 40 Hot 100 hit, as "Pound the Alarm" charges 50-29 with top Airplay Gainer honors. It roars 52-39 on Hot 100 Airplay (32 million, up 29%). On Hot Digital Songs, the track flies 35-17 (76,000, up 59%).
-- Kelly Clarkson: As "Dark Side" inches closer to the Hot 100's top 40 (44-42), the cut becomes her second No. 1 on Dance Club Songs (2-1). Clarkson's first No. 1 was her previous single, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," which topped the survey in March. "Dark Side" continues to gain on the Mainstream Top 40 (24-23) and Adult Top 40 (9-8) airplay rankings.
-- Green Day: "Oh Love," the lead single from the band's forthcoming trilogy of albums, enters the Hot 100 at No. 100. It rules Rock Songs for a third week and holds at No. 3 on Alternative, where it's the act's record 16th top three hit.
