Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Hold Four-Week Hot 100 Reign, Deceased Zach Sobiech Debuts
For the amazingly fourth week in a row, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ “Can’t Hold Us,” featuring Ray Dalton, holds the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as a fourth week atop the Digital Songs chart, even though it had an 8% decrease in downloads this week.
It slips from #1 to #2 on the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart, holds its #2 peak to date on Streaming Songs, and advances airplay at #3 on Radio Songs.
With the duo’s breakout hit single “Thrift Shop,” which reached the #1 spot earlier this year, it makes them one of only two acts to place at least one title in the chart’s top 10 each week this year following Bruno Mars who accomplished the feat with “Locked Out of Heaven” and “When I Was Your Man.”

Also for a fourth week, coming in at #2 on the Hot 100, as well as the Radio Songs chart is P!nk and Nate Ruess‘ “Just Give Me a Reason.”
The song manages to fall from #3 to #4 this week on the Digital Songs chart, and #9 to #13 on Streaming Songs.
In fact, the Top 3 songs on the chart remain the same for a fourth week, with Justin Timberlake‘s “Mirrors“ sitting steady at #3.
As the track spends a second week at #1 on Radio Songs, he boasts a new career-best audience reach, beating his 2006 single “My Love,” featuring T.I. It falls #6 to #9 on Digital Songs and #8 to #10 on Streaming Songs.
Daft Punk‘s Pharrell Williams-assisted “Get Lucky” leaps from #10 to #4 this week and earns the title of the Hot 100’s top Digital and Streaming Gainer.
It also jumps from #10 to #5 on the Digital Songs chart and leaps from #3 to #1 on the On-Demand Songs chart.

Closing out the top 5 this week is Florida Georgia Line‘s “Cruise” after spending 34 weeks on the chart, setting a record for the slowest climb to the region in the chart’s nearly 55-year history. It eclipses the 30-week ascent to the top five of Lonestar‘s eventual #1 “Amazed” in 1999-2000.
Rounding out the last five songs in the Top 10 we have Selena Gomez‘s “Come & Get It“ at #6, with Icona Pop with their debut hit single “I Love It,” featuring Charli XCX, at #7, Rihanna‘s “Stay“ featuring Mikky Ekko, dropping from #5 to #8, and Imagine Dragons‘ “Radioactive“ retreating to #9, and “When I was Your Man“ by Bruno Mars closing out the list at #10.
Outside of the Hot 100’s top 10 enters “Clouds,” a bittersweet debut for 18-year-old singer/songwriter Zach Sobiech, who succumbed to bone cancer on May 20, 2013.
The inspirational folk ballad, which has become a viral hit, begins its journey at #26. It enters Digital Songs at #7, re-enters Rock Digital Songs at #1, and returns at #3 on Hot Rock Songs after popping onto the chart two weeks ago at #48.
