MAGIC!’s “Rude” topped the Billboard Hot 100 for its second consecutive week, while Iggy Azalea and Charlie XCX’s Song of the Summer “Fancy” stays put at No. 2.

The biggest gain in the top 10 this week, according to Billboard, is Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.” The ballad soared from No. 5 to third on the Hot 100, while also seeing gain in radio, streaming and downloads. The song has already reached No. 1 in his home country, the U.K.

“Fancy” by Iggy and Charlie crowns the Hot Rap Songs for a 14th week and also topped the Songs of the Summer list for an eighth week - the only song to top it so far this year.

Ariana Grande’s “Problem” is pushed backed to No. 4 on the Hot 100, while Nico and Vinz’s “Am I Wrong” rounds out the top five this week. In the lower tier of the top 10 is “All of Me” by John Legend” at No. 6, Maroon 5’s “Maps” reach a new peak at No. 7, Jason Derulo’s “Wiggle” is No. 8, Disclosure's "Latch," whose lead vocals are by Sam Smith, is at No.9 and Calvin Harris’s “Summer” rounds out the top 10.

Over on the Billboard 200 album chart, Weird Al Yankovic debuted to his first No. 1 album with Mandatory Fun, which sold more than 100,000 copies last week.
