As previously reported, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis post a fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Can't Hold Us," featuring Ray Dalton. Who else makes notable news on the Hot 100 and other song charts this week?

-- Bruno Mars: The disco-tinged "Treasure" shimmies 71-36 in its second week on the Hot 100, fueled by a 56-27 vault on Hot 100 Airplay with a 66% gain to 41 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. Following the first full week of sales after he performed the song to open the Billboard Music Awards (May 19), it enters Hot Digital Songs at No. 35 (56,000 downloads sold, up 130%, according to Nielsen SoundScan).

-- Rocko: Five years after his only other Hot 100 appearance, the No. 66-peaking "Umma Do Me," the rapper reaches the Hot 100's top 40 with "U.O.E.N.O." (featuring Future and Rick Ross), which lifts 45-38. It rises 11-7 on the Streaming Songs chart with 3.4 million U.S. streams during the chart week (up 7%), according to BDS. On Rap Songs, the track pushes 10-8, moving within a spot of the No. 7 peak of his 2008 breakout hit on the ranking.

-- Maroon 5: Following the premiere of the song's video on NBC's "The Voice" (May 20), "Love Somebody," the fourth single from Overexposed, begins on the Hot 100 at No. 54. It launched on Hot Digital Songs at No. 27 (72,000, up 561%) and Hot 100 Airplay at No. 60 (21 million, up 59%). Among the song's co-writers: OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder.

-- David Guetta: The U.S. is now discovering what EDM fans worldwide have been grooving to for months: "Play Hard" (featuring Ne-Yo & Akon), which debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 76. The song, which samples Alice DeeJay's classic "Better Off Alone" (which reached No. 3 on Dance Club Songs in 2000), enters the Hot 100 (48,000 downloads sold, up 313%) after reaching the top 10 of 16 international charts since September. It spends a fourth week in the Official U.K. Singles chart's top 10. It's additionally receiving exposure in the current Beats By Dre ad campaign.

-- Labrinth: Like Guetta's new entry, Labrinth's maiden Hot 100 hit, "Beneath Your Beautiful," featuring Emeli Sande, arrives on the Hot 100 (No. 88) after conquering multiple international surveys, including the Official U.K. Singles chart, which it topped in November. Sande, meanwhile, reaches a new peak with her solo debut "Next to Me" (No. 25).
 
-- Stone Temple Pilots: The retooled band soars onto Rock Airplay at No. 25 and Alternative at No. 30 with the self-released "Out of Time." The song is the group's 22nd on the latter list, and first since 2010, dating to its first more than 20 years ago. The act's history features 11 top 10s, including one No. 1 (2010's "Between the Lines"). The new single, however, is the first sporting Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington on vocals in place of Scott Weiland. In a message posted to his website addressed to his fans, Weiland skewered his former bandmates, calling the band's new incarnation "not Stone Temple Pilots." Weiland added that the remaining STP members "don't have the ethical right to call themselves Stone Temple Pilots because it's misleading and dishonest to the millions of fans that have followed us for so many years."
