Before that, Jason and Keith chat about Taylor Swift replacing herself at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart with “Blank Space,” One Direction’s great new album Four and its first-week sales projection, the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack and why Lorde’s latest opus isn’t attracting consumers, and a rollicking chart stat of the week featuring Olivia Newton-John.
