As previously reported, Iggy Azalea spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, while holding at No. 2 as a guest on Ariana Grande's "Problem." Plus, MAGIC! and Calvin Harris each enter the top 10. Who else makes moves on Billboard song charts this week?
 
-- Justin Timberlake: JT takes over atop Adult Top 40 with "Not a Bad Thing" (2-1). (The song dips 9-11 on the Hot 100.) While his solo history on Adult Top 40 dates to 2003, when he charted the No. 24-peaking "Rock Your Body," he's now earned his first two No. 1s in the past year; "Mirrors" topped the July 27, 2013, list. Timberlake tallied four Adult Top 40 entries as part of 'N Sync, led by "Bye Bye," which reached No. 19 in 2000.
 
-- Luke Bryan: "Play It Again" (up 18-16 on the Hot 100) logs an eighth week at No. 1 on Hot Country Songs, marking the fourth-most weeks atop the chart since the ranking switched from measuring core country radio audience to a sales/airplay/streaming hybrid methodology on Oct. 20, 2012. Last summer, Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" set an all-time record with 24 weeks atop the chart before it was replaced at No. 1 on the Aug. 31 survey by Bryan's "That's My Kind of Night," which spent 12 weeks on top. With 10 weeks at No. 1, Taylor Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" boasts the third-longest reign since the methodology makeover.

 
-- Idina Menzel: The singer/Broadway star scores her first No. 1 on Dance Club Songs with "Let It Go" (2-1). (It's down 22-28 on the Hot 100 after reaching No. 5.) Originally from the "Frozen" soundtrack and remixed by Armin van Buuren for Disney's "Dconstructed" compilation, "Go" has also drawn remixes from Dave Aude and Papercha$er, among others.
 
-- Lil Wayne: The rapper soars 48-9 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with his newest single, "Believe Me," featuring Drake, extending Wayne's record for the most top 10s (39) since the chart adopted Nielsen data on Dec. 5, 1992. (Drake is in second place, with 35.) The track, which sold 84,000 first-week downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan, previews Wayne's set "Tha Carter V," for which an official release date is pending.
 
On the Hot 100, "Believe" begins at No. 36, marking Lil Wayne's 122nd hit, a sum second only to the cast of Fox's "Glee" (207). Elvis Presley is third with 108 entries. (Of Weezy's visits, nearly two-thirds have been in featured roles.)
 
-- Lee Brice: He claims his fifth Hot Country Songs top 10, as "I Don't Dance" twirls 12-8. He'd last reached the region with "I Drive Your Truck," which motored to a No. 6 peak on the March 30, 2013, list. On the Hot 100, "Dance" darts 60-52.

 
-- John Mayer: His folk-rock rendition of Beyoncé's "XO" starts at No. 90 on the Hot 100 and No. 13 on Hot Rock Songs with 46,000 downloads sold (accounting for 90 percent of its chart points). After performing the cover while on tour in Australia in April, Mayer released a studio version of his interpretation of the love song on May 13th. Mayer last appeared on both charts with "Who You Love," a duet with former flame Katy Perry from his most recent album, "Paradise Valley."
 
-- Ne-Yo: The crooner debuts at No. 22 on Hot R&B Songs with "Money Can't Buy," featuring Jeezy. The entrance marks Ne-Yo's first song on the chart since 2012, when "Should Be You" featuring Fabolous and Diddy, peaked at No. 24. "Money" opens at No. 13 on R&B Digital Songs (15,000 sold). The song also enters at No. 49 on the inaugural Twitter Top Tracks chart, a weekly ranking of the most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the U.S. listed by the volume of shares over a seven-day period.
 
-- Jack White: On the Alternative airplay chart, "Lazaretto" lifts 11-9 to become his first top 10 as a soloist. White boasts nine Alternative top 10s combined with the White Stripes and the Raconteurs.
 
-- Gerardo Ortiz: Ortiz climbs 6-1 on Regional Mexican Airplay with "Quien Se Anima," landing his fourth No. 1 on the list. The song grows by 13 percent in its fifth week on the chart to 7.5 million audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. It also becomes his fifth to reach the top 10 of Hot Latin Songs (11-9). "Anima" is the second single from "Archivos de Mi Vida," his fourth studio album, which debuted at No. 1 on Top Latin Albums in December.
 
-- Nari & Milani, Cristian Marchi: "I Got My Eye On You" (featuring Luciana), originally released in 2011, takes the Hot Shot Debut tag on Dance/Electronic Songs at No. 14, thanks to its inclusion in a viral video on YouTube featuring … dancing Korean babies. The clip pulled in 1.2 million U.S. YouTube streams for the week ending June 1.
 
-- The Lonely Island: The comedy trio debuts at No. 22 on Hot Dance/Electronic Songs with the EDM culture parody "When Will the Bass Drop" (13,000 sold). The song's video, first aired as an SNL Digital Short during the May 17 season finale of NBC's "Saturday Night Live," stars Andy Samberg as Daviinci, a fictional superstar DJ seemingly based on David Guetta and Avicii.

 
-- Destiny's Child: The trio makes its latest quasi-reunion, as Michelle Williams' "Say Yes," featuring Beyonce and Kelly Rowland, debuts on Hot Gospel Songs at No. 20. Last summer, the threesome spent a week on R&B Digital Songs with "You Changed" (credited to Rowland featuring Beyonce and Williams). Destiny's Child charted 10 Billboard Hot 100 top 10s, including four No. 1s, in 1998-2005.
 
The impetus for the new collaboration? Beyonce and Rowland received an advance copy of the inspirational "Yes" and beamed, "'There has to be a Destiny's Child mix of the song,' " Williams told The Hollywood Reporter. "Kelly and Beyonce got right in the studio."
