As previously reported, Lorde's "Royals" rules the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth week. Who else crowns and makes notable moves on song charts this week?
-- Justin Bieber: All three releases from Justin Bieber's "Music Mondays" series have debuted in the top 10 on the Hot Digital Songs chart. After the Nos. 5 and 6 hits "Heartbreaker" (which has sold 214,000 downloads total, according to Nielsen SoundScan) and "All That Matters" (146,000), he now arrives with "Hold Tight" (No. 7 with 111,000). On the Hot 100, "Hold" opens at No. 29.
-- Taylor Swift: The multi-genre star debuts at No. 34 on the Hot 100 with "Sweeter Than Fiction," her '80s-inspired pop track from the movie "One Chance." (The film tells the story of politician/opera singer Paul Potts, who won the inaugural season of "Britain's Got talent" in 2007.) With the bow, Swift ties Aretha Franklin for the second-most top 40 entries (43) among women in the chart's history. The pair trails only Madonna, with 49.
On Hot Digital Songs, "Fiction" starts at No. 6 (with 114,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan), tying Swift with Rihanna for the most top 10s (28) among all acts.
-- Eric Church: Released simultaneously Oct. 22 to radio and digital retailers, "The Outsiders" debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 51. On Hot Country Songs, it rockets 50-6, while blowing in at No. 1 on Country Digital Songs (81,000).
Following an early bow on Hot Country Songs last week with audience impressions from one day of airplay (due mostly to coordinated hourly play on Clear Channel-owned stations), "Outsiders" takes the biggest leap into the top 10 by any song since the chart's methodology changed from core country radio audience to a sales/airplay/streaming hybrid a little more than a year ago. The 44-spot lift surpasses a 45-6 jump by Blake Shelton's "Sure Be Cool If You Did" in January.
-- Tyga: The West Coast rapper teams up with Bieber on "Wait for a Minute," the lead single off the former's “The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty,” due early next year. The smooth cut (which is more R&B than rap, with Tyga providing a single verse) opens at No. 8 on R&B Songs, No. 17 on Digital Songs, No. 24 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and No. 68 on the Hot 100 due primarily to its 68,000 first-week downloads sold.
-- Bastille: On Hot Rock Songs, the band reaches the top 10 (11-10) with its breakthrough hit "Pompeii" (up 74-73 on the Hot 100). The melodic cut tops Rock Airplay for a second week (11 million audience impressions, up 3%, according to Nielsen BDS) and approaches the top 10 on Rock Digital Songs (13-11; 23,000 downloads sold, up 13%) and Rock Streaming Songs (15-11; 984,000 streams, up 8%, according to BDS).
-- Travie McCoy: With the debut of "Rough Water" (featuring Jason Mraz) at No. 90 on the Hot 100, he makes his first appearance as a lead artist since his first, "Billionaire" (featuring Bruno Mars), reached No. 4 in 2010. Radio accounts for the majority (43%) of the Hot 100 points for "Water"; it debuts at No. 72 on Hot 100 Airplay (16 million, up 15%) and rises 26-24 on Mainstream Top 40.
-- Rihanna: "What Now" begins at No. 96 on the Hot 100, upping the star's count to 44 entries dating to her 2005 arrival. That's the ninth-best total among women in the chart's history. Franklin tops the category with 73 visits.
-- The Fray: The band enters Hot Rock Songs at No. 15 with "Love Don't Die," which bows on Rock Digital Songs at No. 9 (25,000). The song previews the band's fourth album, Helios, due Jan. 14.
-- Calvin Harris & Alesso: The pair scores the top debut on Dance/Electronic Songs as "Under Control" opens at No. 12, powered by 26,000 first-week downloads. The collaboration, featuring vocals by English act Hurts, also enters at No. 6 on Dance/Electronic Digital Songs, affording Harris his sixth top 10 on that chart.
Come December, Harris will be co-headlining the Greater Than tour with Tiesto, which, along with Pete Tong, GTA and Danny Avila, will trek across the U.K. Alesso, meanwhile, is inviting fans to participate in his Uprising tour via uploading pictures of themselves with their hands in the air through Facebook, Instagram and raiseyourhandsup.alessoworld.com, where daily prizes are promised.
-- Wisin: He locks in his first top 10 as a soloist on Hot Latin Songs as "Que Viva La Vida" lifts 11-5. A video for the song premiered on Vevo on Oct. 22, helping the track's streams increase to 67,000, while download sales jump by 49% to 2,000 (pushing the track 13-9 on Latin Digital Songs).
Wisin equals the top 10 Hot Latin Songs showing earned by his counterpart Yandel, who peaked at No. 5 last month with his single "Hable de Ti." As a pair, Wisin & Yandel have amassed 21 top 10s on the tally.
