Pharrell Again Leads Hot 100, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” Goes Top 10

John Legend’s “All of Me” closed much of the gap, but it was unable to knock Pharrell’s “Happy” from the peak of the Billboard Hot 100.

“Happy,” therefore, spends a tenth week atop Billboard’s definitive chart for singles. It is the third male solo track to achieve the feat and the 28th overall.

In addition to reigning over the Hot 100, “Happy” is also number one on digital songs and streaming songs.

Trailing “Happy” by just 5% in chart points, “All of Me” again settles for number two on the Hot 100.

Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse (featuring Juicy J)” follows at #3, while Jason DeRulo’s “Talk Dirty (featuring 2 Chainz)” slides back to #4. DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” reaches a new peak for #5.

As the “Frozen” buzz finally begins to fade, Idina Menzel’s Oscar-winning “Let it Go” drops to number six.

Iggy Azalea follows with her first career top ten in “Fancy.” The collaboration with Charli XCX lands at seven on the weekly Hot 100. While no previous Azalea track had charted whatsoever on the Hot 100, Charli previously reached #7 as a featured artist on Icona Pop’s “I Love It.”

Azalea becomes the first female rapper to send a Hot 100 debut to the top ten since MIA’s “Paper Planes” reached #4 in 2008.

Bastille’s “Pompeii” settles for eight place, while Justin Timberlake’s “Not a Bad Thing” (9) and Chris Brown’s “Loyal” (10) close out the Top 10.
