Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

As 'Thrift Shop' returns for a fifth total week at No. 1, Pitbull and Christina Aguilera enter the top 10 and Bruno Mars and P!nk crown Radio Songs and Digital Songs, respectively..

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop," featuring Wanz, returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth cumulative week, narrowly edging out Baauer's "Harlem Shake" after the latter song led the past five weeks. While both songs register declines in overall weekly chart points, another week of decreasing viral momentum for "Shake" helps enable "Shop" to lead again.
 
"Shop" revisits the Hot 100's top rank despite dipping 1-2 on both the Nielsen BDS-based Radio Songs and Nielsen SoundScan-based Digital Songs charts. It decreases by 1% to 118 million audience impressions, departing the Radio Songs summit after two weeks on top, and by 13% to 234,000 downloads sold, falling from the top of Digital Songs after 10 weeks in charge. Still, "Shop" passes five million in digital sales since its release.
 
"Shop" holds at No. 2 on Streaming Songs for a sixth week (after dominating for four) with 9.4 million streams (down 1%), according to BDS. It logs another No. 2 placement on On-Demand Songs, dropping to No. 2 after a record 11 weeks at No. 1 (1.8 million, down 8%). (On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, it leads for an 11th week.)
