The collaboration continues to conquer the chart, while OneRepublic takes over atop Radio Songs and Beyonce crowns the Streaming Songs chart.
Pitbull and Ke$ha post a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Timber." Meanwhile, OneRepublic scores its first No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart with "Counting Stars" and Beyonce does the same on Streaming Songs with "Drunk in Love," featuring Jay Z. Plus, Lorde and Bastille each climb into the Hot 100's top 10.
As we do each Wednesday, let's run down the numbers behind the Hot 100's top 10 and more.
Pitbull's second Hot 100 No. 1 and Ke$ha's third topper remains in charge of the Hot 100 despite not ruling any of the Hot 100's three main component charts (Digital Songs, Radio Songs and Streaming Songs) for a second week. Still, the continued multi-platform popularity of "Timber" keeps the song atop the Hot 100. It rebounds to its No. 2 highpoint (3-2) on Streaming Songs with 5.4 million U.S. streams (essentially even from last week), according to Nielsen BDS, and holds at its No. 3 peak on Radio Songs, gaining by 6% to 131 million all-format audience impressions, according to BDS. On Digital Songs, which it led for four weeks, "Timber" falls 2-3 with 202,000 downloads sold (down 11%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The track concurrently spends a third week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart.
Below "Timber" on the Hot 100, Katy Perry climbs into the runner-up spot (4-2) with "Dark Horse," featuring Juicy J. The track tops Digital Songs (261,000, up 7%) and the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (1.9 million, down less than 1%) for a second week each. It rises 5-3 on Streaming Songs (5.2 million, up 8%) and becomes Perry's 14th top 10 (and 12th in-a-row) on Radio Songs, where it trots 11-9 (82 million, up 22%), earning the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for a third straight week.
Dating to the Radio Songs chart's December 1990 launch, Perry's 14 top 10s ties Beyonce's sum for fifth-place among women. Mariah Carey, the leader among all artists, boasts 23, followed by Rihanna (22) and Janet Jackson and P!nk (15 each).
