Taylor Swift ended 2012 and began 2013 atop the Billboard 200 chart with her latest studio album Red, and Bruno Mars is doing the same thing on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Locked Out of Heaven spends a fourth week at #1, and a second week at #1 on the Radio Songs chart, with a less than 1% increase to 140 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS.

The song serves as the official lead single from his second studio album Unorthodox Jukeboxwhich was released on December 4, 2012.

Not too far behind him at the #2 spot on the Hot 100 is Taylor’s I Knew You Were Trouble.” The song leaps from #4 and reaches its new peak, after bounding onto the chart at #3 nine weeks ago as a then-preview cut to Red. “Trouble” also serves as the fourth-best weekly sales sum of the digital with 582,000 downloads sold in a week.

“Trouble” trails only Flo Rida’s “Right Round” (636,000, Feb. 28, 2009), “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” which is also a song by Taylor (623,000, Sept. 1, 2012) and Ke$ha’s “TiK ToK” (610,000, Jan. 9, 2010). With its latest frame, “Trouble” passes two million downloads sold to date.
