MAGIC!’s “Rude,” Calvin Harris’ “Summer” Hit Top 10 on Hot 100

Facing the antithesis of a “Rude” reception from radio programmers, music buyers and music video viewers, MAGIC!’s breakthrough single ascends into the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

“Rude,” which continues to rise at radio and reached a new peak of #4 on the digital sales chart, reaches a new high of #8 on the publication’s definitive chart for single tracks.

The first top ten hit for MAGIC!, “Rude” is the fourth song written by frontman Nasri Atweh to achieve the feat. He previously penned Justin Bieber’s #6 hit “As Long as You Love Me,” Bieber’s #8 hit “Never Say Never” and Pitbull’s #8 hit “Feel this Moment.”

Calvin Harris’ exploding “Summer” also lifts into the Top 10 this week. The song, which reaches #9, becomes the third Harris song to enter the chart’s uppermost 10%.

He previously reached the Top 10 as a featured artist on Rihanna’s #1 “We Found Love” and on his own “Sweet Nothing” (#10).

The top of the chart belongs to Iggy Azalea, whose “Fancy (featuring Charli XCX)” leads for a second week. Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” which features Azalea, repeats at #2.

John Legend’s “All of Me” claims #3, while DJ Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down for What” rises to #4. Pharrell’s “Happy” slips to #5.

Nico and Vinz’ “Am I Wrong” ascends to a new peak of #6, while Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse (featuring Juicy J)” drops to #7. Jason DeRulo’s “Wiggle (featuring Snoop Dogg)” follows the aforementioned MAGIC! and Harris songs at #10.
