Pharrell Williams and 'Happy' top 400,000 downloads again, Jason Derulo and Katy Perry struggle to keep up

Close

The Billboard 200 was awash with debut albums this week, but things largely remained the same over on the Digital Downloads chart. Although every track in the Top 10 is the same as last week, there was some shuffling. 

That shuffle didn't start at the top however. Pharrell Williams dominated everyone else on the list with his hit "Happy," which nearly doubled the sales of the second-place track. The single moved 413,000 downloads, making it the first song since "Blurred Lines" (another track featuring Williams) to sell more than 400,000 downloads in consecutive weeks. 

Jason Derulo is a distant no. 2, selling 217,000 copies of his single "Talk Dirty." The total moved him up from no. 3 last week, but it was still a 12 percent overall drop in sales. Eight of this week's Top 10 saw drops from last week. Katy Perry dropped to no. 3 with 212,000 downloads of "Dark Horse" selling, a 16 percent drop off. John Legend saw a less dramatic drop in sales, and he stayed put at no. 4 with "All of Me," which moved 198,000 units. 

As we mentioned before, two tracks managed to rise in downloads. One was no. 5 song "Let It Go" by Idina Menzel, which sold 130,000 units (a 4 percent increase). The other was Williams' "Happy." What do the pair have in common? They were both performed live on Sunday night at the Academy Awards. The Frozen soundtrack also saw a boost, over on the albums charts. 

Bastille and "Pompeii" were the first of a few tracks that fell to make room for "Let It Go's" rise. The track moved to no. 6 with 128,000 downloads. Aloe Blacc also lost one spot with "The Man," dropping to no. 7 with 120,000 sold. A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera kept its place at no. 8 with "Say Something," but fell in sales to 110,000. 

Last week's last two tracks switched places. Lorde and "Team" sold 101,000 downloads to take no. 9, and Pitbull and Ke$ha closed out the list with 95,000 downloads sold for "Timber."
