The Billboard Hot 100:
As previously reported, fun. becomes the first rock band in more than a decade to send a debut Billboard Hot 100 hit to No. 1, as "We Are Young," featuring Janelle Monae, ascends 3-1.
Who are other notable movers and shakers on this week's chart?
-- Far*East Movement: "Live My Life" (featuring Justin Bieber), the lead single from the group's forthcoming album, Dirty Bass, arrives as the Hot Shot Debut at No. 21 with 127,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It marks just the second of Bieber's 22 Hot 100 visits in a featured role; he reached No. 26 last year as a guest on Chris Brown's "Next to You."
-- B.o.B, Carly Rae Jepsen: Two titles that launched at high ranks last week due to strong digital sales go in opposite directions this week. B.o.B's "So Good" slides 11-29 (88,000, down 46%), while Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" jumps 38-31 (95,000, up 18%). Both songs gain in airplay, with "Good" (up 292% in plays) and "Maybe" (up 164%) approaching the Mainstream Top 40 chart.
-- Adele: At 61 weeks, Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" breaks a tie with Los Del Rio's "Macarena" (1995-96) as the longest-charting No. 1 hit in the Hot 100's history. "Deep" drops 23-35. New single "Rumour Has It," meanwhile," becomes the fourth top 40 entry from 21 (51-39), fueled by lifts in digital sales (62,000, up 10%) and airplay (11 million, up 121%).
-- Eric Church: Bruce Springsteen's new album, Wrecking Ball, will storm next week's Billboard 200, possibly with sales of 200,000 (although 21 may block the set from the summit). In the meantime, Church praises the Boss with his tribute, "Springsteen," which enters the Hot 100 at No. 79. It rocks 26-23 on Hot Country Songs and 25-13 on Country Digital Songs.
-- Madonna: After peaking at No. 10 (as her record-extending 38th Hot 100 top 10), the Material Girl's "Give Me All Your Luvin'," featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A., falls 58-86 in just its fifth week. (It's also peaked at Mainstream Top 40, dropping 28-36 after reaching No. 24). "Girl Gone Wild," the second single from MDNA, due March 26, debuts on the Hot 100's Bubbling Under chart at No. 6 and Pop Digital Songs at No. 33 with 22,000 downloads sold.
The Billboard 200:
Adele's 21 stays put for a 23rd week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 selling another 247,000 copies (down 17%) according to Nielsen SoundScan. Only one album debuted among the top 10 this week -- WZRD, the collaborative set by Kid Cudi and producer Dot da Genius. It launched at No. 3 with 66,000.
We already recapped the top 10 on the chart this week in earlier stories, so let's look at some of the movers and shakers farther down the list:
-- Pink Floyd: The band's final installment in its Why Pink Floyd? remaster series makes chart waves as a refurbished version of The Wall zooms 190-17 on the tally, selling 20,000 (up 537%). The album's various reissue configurations received a staggered release, with the standard reissue (dubbed the Discovery edition) arriving Sept. 27, 2011. The ultra-deluxe Immersion box, Experience version and vinyl LP collection streeted last week. So far in 2012, Pink Floyd's albums have moved 181,000 copies, while last year they sold 798,000 and in 2010, 563,000.
-- Jason Mraz: Similar to how his last studio set was introduced by two live EPs, his upcoming Love is a Four Letter Word is led by this four-song set Live is a Four Letter Word (11,000; debuting at No. 56). It is his eighth overall album to reach the list.
-- Bob Marley & Elton John: The icon's Legend greatest hits package was sale priced for $2.99 for one day during Google's leap day sale (Feb. 29). In turn, it sports a 178% overall sales gain and rises 146-58 -- its best rank since the July 9, 2011 chart, when it slipped 26-40. Not only does Google aid the "legend"ary reggae act, their promotion also assists Elton John, who sees his Rocket Man: Number Ones zoom back onto the list at No. 89 with a 315% increase.
-- Toby Keith: His most recent album, Clancy's Tavern (No. 73, with 452,000 sold), has surpassed his last studio set's sales (2010's Bullets in the Gun, 380,000) and will likely become his biggest studio effort since 2007's Big Dog Daddy (702,000). He's released a studio album every year since 2005. Why is Clancy's Tavern selling so well? It might have something to do with the crossover success of its single, "Red Solo Cup." It's his highest charting single ever on the Billboard Hot 100 (having peaked at No. 15) and was covered by Fox TV's "Glee" on Dec. 6, 2011.
-- "The Artist" -- After the film won five Academy Awards on Feb. 26, including best picture and best original score, its soundtrack debuts at No. 19 on Top Soundtracks with a 72% sales gain. (The chart is viewable at Billboard.biz/charts.) The score album, by Ludovic Bource, sold 2,000 copies last week -- its best sales frame yet. The set was released Nov. 22, 2011, and has moved a total of 10,000.
