'Can't' Stop Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Atop Hot 100
The duo dominates for a third week with 'Can't Hold Us'; Daft Punk scores its first top 10; and Justin Timberlake rules at radio
After performing their breakthrough Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 "Thrift Shop" on the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night (May 19), Macklemore & Ryan Lewis spend a third week atop the survey with "Can't Hold Us," featuring Ray Dalton. Daft Punk, meanwhile, darts to its first Hot 100 top 10 and Justin Timberlake lands his first Radio Songs No. 1 as a lead artist since 2006.
"Hold" registers a third week atop the Digital Songs chart, decreasing by 4% to 231,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It leads the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs survey for a fifth frame and rebounds to its peak (3-2) on Streaming Songs, drawing 5.9 million streams (up 1%), according to Nielsen BDS. It pushes 4-3 on Radio Songs with 126 million all-format audience impressions (up 4%), according to BDS.
"Hold" collects a fifth week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Rap Songs charts.
Down less than 1% in overall chart points, "Hold" maintains the Hot 100's top spot over P!nk's former three-week Hot 100 No. 1 "Just Give Me a Reason," featuring fun.'s Nate Ruess (down 9%), which spends a third week at No. 2. "Reason" retreats 1-2 after a week atop Radio Songs, although up 1% to 137 million; 2-3 on Digital Songs, which it led for four weeks (193,000, down 16%); and 7-10 on Streaming Songs (3.6 million, down 9%).
P!nk's slip on Radio Songs means that a new leader crowns the list, an honor that goes to Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors," which holds at No. 3 on the Hot 100. The track lifts 2-1 on the airplay-based ranking with a 7% gain to 141 million. It's Timberlake's fourth No. 1 on the chart and first since he spent seven weeks at the summit as a guest on T.I.'s "Dead and Gone" in 2009. He previously led with "SexyBack" (four weeks) and "My Love," featuring T.I. (five), both in 2006. As previously reported, "Mirrors" tops the Pop Songs airplay chart this week, pushing Timberlake into a lead with Bruno Mars for the most No. 1s among males (six each) in the tally's 20-year history.
"Mirrors" dips 3-6 on Digital Songs (156,000, down 7%) and rises 10-9 on Streaming Songs, although with a 2% backslide to 3.6 million.
The Hot 100's top five remains static, as Mars' former No. 1 "When I Was Your Man" and Rihanna's No. 3-peaking "Stay," featuring Mikky Ekko, hold at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively.
Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" charts a new peak (10-6) in its 33rd week on the Hot 100. The song surges by 25% in sales to 189,000, bulleting at No. 4 on Digital Songs, and sails 15-11 on Radio Songs (52 million, up 8%) and 25-18 on Streaming Songs (3 million, up 41%). The track tops Hot Country Songs for a 12th week. It crowned Country Airplay for three weeks in December; remixed with vocals by Nelly, it's since crossed to pop radio, pushing 15-12 on Pop Songs and 21-20 on Adult Pop Songs this week.
Selena Gomez regresses 6-7 on the Hot 100 with her first top 10 on the chart, "Come & Get It." Still, following her performance of the song on the Billboard Music Awards, it charges 6-5 on Digital Songs (164,000, up 15%) and 24-13 on Radio Songs (49 million, up 16%). It loses momentum only in streaming, dropping 4-8 on Streaming Songs (3.9 million, down 31%); the song had roared 36-4 on the list last week following the premiere of its video on May 7.
Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" remains at No. 8 in its 38th week on the Hot 100, and rules Hot Rock Songs for a ninth week, aided by a 41-33 jump on Radio Songs (36 million, up 14%).
Yet another BBMA performer bullets in the Hot 100's top 10: Icona Pop, with "I Love It" (featuring Charli XCX), which holds at No. 9, powered in part by an 8-6 lift on Radio Songs (75 million, up 6%).
Daft Punk, meanwhile, scores its first Hot 100 top 10 (approximately two decades after the duo's formation), as "Get Lucky," featuring Pharrell Williams, vaults 15-10 as the chart's top Streaming Gainer. Assisted by the buzz of the release of the pair's album "Random Access Memories" on Tuesday (21), its first full-length studio set since 2005, the track bounds 12-5 on Streaming Songs (4.5 million, up 30%); 17-10 on Digital Songs (118,000, up 45%), marking the act's first top 10 on the chart; and 46-29 on Radio Songs (41 million, up 32%).
Daft Punk had charted two previous Hot 100 entries: "Around the World" (1997) and "One More Time" (2001), each of which reached No. 61.
In addition to his guest spot on "Lucky," Williams' current prominence is evident just outside the Hot 100's top 10, as Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," on which he and T.I. are featured, rockets 54-12 with top Digital Gainer honors. The track soars 23-2 on Digital Songs (206,000, up 204%) after Thicke performed it last week on NBC's "The Voice."
The Hot 100's Airplay Gainer award goes to Mariah Carey's "#Beautiful," featuring Miguel, which climbs 24-20 in its second week. The lead single from Carey's forthcoming 13th studio album coasts 44-28 on Radio Songs (42 million, up 33%) and debuts at No. 41 on Streaming Songs (1.5 million, up 223%), although it drops 10-15 on Digital Songs (97,000, down 14%). Carey sang the song as part of a medley of her hits on last Thursday's (16) "American Idol" season finale.
