MAGIC! continues their ruling of the Hot 100, continuing to keep Iggy Azalea and Charlie XCX’s “Fancy” from reaching the summit again.
According to Billboard, the group earned a third week at number one with their breakout hit “Rude,” but demands for the song has dropped. The song no longer rules the Digital Songs chart (after being dethroned by Jason Aldean’s “Burnin' It Down") and took a dip in streaming. However, the song did gain radio audience by 3 percent this week with a 164 million all-format audience impression.
“Fancy” is stationed at No.2 for a third straight week after ruling the summit for seven consecutive weeks, giving her the title of the female rapper with the longest No. 1 single. Below Iggy and Charlie is Sam Smith and his power ballad, “Stay With Me” at No. 3.
Nico and Vinz’s “Am I Wrong” continued its success atop the Hot Radio Songs Chart, spending a fourth week at No. 1 on the chart. Ariana Grande has one less "Problem," as she remained in the top five this week.
The bottom tier of the Hot 100 includes two new peaks, a new entry and a new record.
Maroon 5’s “Maps” reached a new peak of No. 6, their highest peaking song since “One More Night.” Disclosure and Smith reached a high-point of No. 7 with “Latch.” John Legend’s “All Of Me” broke Pharrell’s “Happy” and Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” records for the longest stay in the top 10 for 2014 with 23 weeks. “Happy” and “Dark Horse” each spent 22 weeks.
Meanwhile, Sia hit No. 9 with “Chandelier,” marking her first Top 10 Hot 100 hit as a solo act. She previously reached the top 10 as a featured artist on Flo-Rida’s “Wild Ones” and David Guetta’s “Titanium.”
Calvin Harris rounded out the top 10 with “Summer” at No. 10.
