Pharrell Williams 'Happy' at top of Hot 100 for eighth week in most unmoving week ever
The top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 remains almost completely stagnant for the third week in a row, marking the first time in the history of the charts that the top seven songs in America remain unmoved.
According to Billboard, for the eighth week in a row, Pharrell Williams' "Happy" is the No. 1 song in America. Though the tear-inducing track lost a few chart points, Pharrell still leads Radio Songs and digital sales for yet another week, easily securing him a second month of hit for the G I R L lead single.
As stated, the top seven songs in the country remain the same for the third week in a row.
That means: John Legend's sappy love ballad "All Of Me" rests at No. 2, Katy Perry strides on her "Dark Horse" at No. 3 again, Jason Derulo holds strong at No. 4 with "Talk Dirty," Idina Menzel remains Frozen with "Let It Go" at No. 5, Bastille remains in the rubble with "Pompeii" at No. 6 and Lorde is a member of the No. 7 crew with "Team."
In a week where Frozen tops the US Album Chart for the 10th nonconsecutive week, let's just say the Billboard charts have been a little dull thus far in 2014.
Even when the Hot 100's top 10 gets a little bit of a shakeup, it's all slight movements.
DJ Snake and Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What" rose two spots, climing from No. 10 to No. 8 thanks to minor gains in sales and streams, though its radio play has risen 15 percent. "Turn Down For What" swapped places with OneRepublic's former No. 2 hit "Counting Stars," which slid to the No. 10 spot.
Between those two songs? Another non-mover. Aloe Blacc's "The Man" is kept at No. 9.
The highest debut and the great hope for a little bit of a shakeup in the Hot 100 for next week comes via Ed Sheeran's funky Pharrell-produced x single "Sing," which shot into the Hot 100 at No. 15.
