Hot 100 - Baauer, Pink

Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” remains at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth week and P!nk’s “Just Give Me A Reason” becomes her 14th Top 10.

If you wanted Baauer‘s overnight hit single, “Harlem Shake,” to disappear, 2013 is not your year. Even with a notable slide in streaming, the song holds the #1 spot for a fifth consecutive week on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Shaking up the chart a few weeks ago due to the addition of U.S. YouTube video streaming data, its lead over Macklemore & Ryan LewisThrift Shop,” featuring Wanz, is starting to shrink.

“Shop” meanwhile still manages to hold the #1 spots on Radio Songs, Digital Songs and On-Demand Songs charts, where it reigns for a record-extending 11th week on the latter.

Steady at #3 this week is Bruno MarsWhen I Was Your Man,” the official second single from his second studio album Unorthodox Jukebox.

Appearing on Jimmy Fallon and Saturday Night Live last week pays off for Justin Timberlake, whose #4-peaking Suit & Tie,” featuring Jay-Z, returns to spot this week.

His second single, Mirrors, is the Hot 100’s top Digital Gainer, leaping from #77 to #25 and jumping #48 to #8 on Digital Songs.

This makes Justin the first artist to earn the Streaming and Digital Gainer awards in the same week with different songs since the Streaming Gainer ribbon was introduced a year ago this month.

Rihanna and Mikky Ekko‘s Stay falls back to #5, Drake‘s Started From the Bottom snags #6, and Taylor Swift declines to #7 with I Knew You Were Trouble.”

will.i.am and Britney SpearsScream & Shout” stays at #8, P!nk‘s Just Give Me a Reason,” featuring fun.’s Nate Ruess, becomes her 14th Hot 100 top 10 at #9, and amid last Friday’s health scare, Lil Wayne‘s Drake and Future-assisted Love Me drops from #9 to #10.
