As 'Uptown Funk!' leads for a sixth week, the all-star trio vaults with 'FourFiveSeconds' and Goulding soars with 'Love Me Like You Do.'
Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk!," featuring Bruno Mars, rules the Billboard Hot 100 for a sixth week, while two songs surge into the top 10: Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney's "FourFiveSeconds" -- marking McCartney's first top 10 after a record-setting 29-year gap -- and Ellie Goulding's Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack single "Love Me Like You Do."
With an extra-action-packed chart, let's run through the key numbers behind the top 10 on the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot 100, as we do each Wednesday.
As "Funk!," released on RCA Records, tops the Hot 100 for a sixth week, Mars matches his longest reign: "Locked Out of Heaven" (which Ronson co-produced) led for six frames in 2012-13. "Funk" spends a seventh week atop Digital Songs with 319,000 downloads sold (down 12 percent) in the week ending Feb. 8, according to Nielsen Music; leads Streaming Songs (17.9 million U.S. streams, down 27 percent) and the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs (5.4 million, down 5 percent) for a fourth week each; and tops Radio Songs for a third week with a 3 percent lift to 176 million in all-format audience.
