According to Billboard, MAGIC! spends a fourth week at No. 1 with “Rude” as the crown of Radio Songs for the first time. However, Sam Smith made some major gain this week by leaping to the No. 2 spot. It’s anybody’s game next week.
“Fancy” by rap belle Iggy Azalea drops to No. 3 this week; it’s the song's lowest ranking in over 10 weeks. Nico and Vinz's radio hit, “Am I Wrong,” is a non-mover at No. 4. Meanwhile, Ariana Grande boasts the No. 5 and 6 spot with her hit “Problem” featuring Iggy Azalea (No. 5) and the hot shot debut of the week, “Bang Bang,” which makes its first appearance at No. 6 on the chart. Jessie J and Nicki Minaj are also leading artists on “Bang Bang” and the song also crowned Digital Songs in its debut week with 230,000 downloads.
The rest of the top 10 are “Maps” by Maroon 5 at No. 7, “Chandelier” by Sia at No. 9, “Latch” by Disclosure and Sam Smith at No. 10 and Meghan Trainor’s “All About the Bass” enters the top 10 at No. 8.
