As previously reported, Lorde's "Royals" rules the Billboard Hot 100 for a fourth week. Who else are makes notable moves on song charts this week?

-- One Republic: The Ryan Tedder-led group lands its first Hot Digital Songs top 10 in two years, as "Counting Stars" (a debut on Mainstream Top 40 at No. 38) pushes 11-9 (103,000 downloads sold, up 17%, according to Nielsen SoundScan). It's sold more only when it roared 59-11 (112,000) the week of July 6 after the band performed it on NBC's "The Voice" on June 18. On the Hot 100, "Stars" shoots 19-15.

-- Luke Bryan: With a 10th straight week atop Hot Country Songs, Luke Bryan's "That's My Kind of Night" is the longest-running No. 1 by a solo male artist in 50 years. The song's reign is the longest since Buck Owens spent 16 weeks at the summit with "Love's Gonna Live Here" in 1963-64. With 64,000 sold during the tracking week, Bryan's single also logs a 10th consecutive week atop Country Digital Songs. It reaches a new peak on Country Airplay, pushing 3-2. On the Hot 100, "Night" bullets at No. 17.

-- Justin Bieber: "All That Matters," the second song of Bieber's planned 10-week "Music Mondays" series, begins on the Hot 100 at No. 24 and Hot Digital Songs at No. 6 with 127,000. He could debut with two tracks next week: the feature's next offering, "Hold Tight," and "Wait for a Minute," the latter with Tyga.

-- Tegan And Sara: Almost a year after it arrived on Alternative (Nov. 17, 2012), where it peaked at No. 30, "Closer" reaches the Hot 100, debuting at No. 90. It concurrently enters Hot 100 Airplay at No. 66 (18 million audience impressions, up 14%, according to Nielsen BDS), spurred in part by its 21-20 lift on Mainstream Top 40.

-- The Animals: A classic enters Hot Rock Songs at No. 20: the Animals' "House of the Rising Sun," which topped the Hot 100 for three weeks in 1964. It soars onto Rock Digital Songs at No. 12 with 20,000 downloads sold (up from 3,000 the week before) after Briana Cuoco and Jacquie Lee covered it on NBC's "The Voice" as Briana's sister Kaley, star of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory," cheered her on. (Per chart rules, timeworn songs can appear on airplay/sales/streaming hybrid surveys if ranking in a tally's top half.)

-- Three Days Grace: The band tallies its 10th No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock airplay chart, as "Misery Loves My Company" lifts 2-1. The band first reigned with "Just Like You" the week of Aug. 21, 2004. Since the chart adopted Nielsen BDS data in 1991, the group leads all acts for the most leaders, outpacing Shinedown (eight) and Collective Soul, Metallica, Nickelback and Stone Temple Pilots (seven each). Three Days Grace's 66 weeks at No. 1 in that span are also the most, ahead of 3 Doors Down's 53 and Nickelback's 49.

-- Daft Punk: The duo tallies its sixth Dance Club Songs No. 1 with "Lose Yourself to Dance" (2-1). The track, which reaches the top rung without the benefit of officially commissioned label remixes, is the follow-up to the pair's smash "Get Lucky," which led the list for two weeks in June. Daft Punk's string of chart-toppers began 16 years ago with its maiden entry "Da Funk."

-- Wisin: The artist scores his first No. 1 as a lead on Latin Rhythm Airplay, stepping 2-1 with "Que Viva La Vida." As part of the duo Wisin & Yandel, he has 14 chart-toppers under his belt, marking the record for most No. 1s in the chart's history.

-- Calibre 50: The group secures its first No. 1 with "Ni Que Estuvieras Tan Buena," which hops 2-1. Calibre 50 performed at the Billboard Mexican Music Awards on Oct. 9, broadcast live on Telemundo, and took home the award for song of the year, vocal event for "Gente Batallosa," featuring Banda Carnaval.

-- Somo: Texas newcomer makes his first R&B Songs appearance, as "Ride" opens at No. 25 on the list. Despite virtually no airplay, the single off of the singer's My Life mixtape rose 14% to 12,000 downloads, pushing it 11-10 on R&B Digital Songs. Somo is currently embarking on the last leg of his 29-city "The Ride Tour," which ends Nov. 17 in Houston.

-- Zac Brown Band: The country act brings a song with the name "Annie" in its title to the Hot 100 for the first time since 1977 (when Roger Daltrey took "Avenging Annie" to No. 88), as "Sweet Annnie" starts at No. 94. The highest-charting such hit? John Denver's two-week 1974 No. 1 "Annie's Song."
