Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Still Atop Hot 100, Robin Thicke Reaches Top 10, Daft Punk hold #1

The duo maintains its command for a fifth week with 'Can't Hold Us,' while 'Blurred Lines' soars upward.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis notch a fifth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Can't Hold Us," featuring Ray Dalton. Robin Thicke, meanwhile, lands his first Hot 100 top 10, as "Blurred Lines," featuring T.I. and Pharrell, roars 11-6, fueled in part by a 3-1 rise on Digital Songs.

"Can't Hold Us" remains atop the Hot 100 despite not currently leading any of the list's three main component charts (a feat last managed by Pink's "Just Give Me a Reason," featuring Nate Ruess, five weeks ago). "Hold" falls 1-5 after five weeks in charge of Digital Songs, decreasing by 13% to 184,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and 2-3 on Streaming Songs, drawing 5 million U.S. streams in the tracking week (down 11%), according to Nielsen BDS. The cut's airplay continues to grow, however, as "Hold" pushes 3-2 on Radio Songs with 131 million all-format audience impressions (up 3%), according to BDS.

With the pair's prior establishing hit "Thrift Shop," featuring Wanz (now at No. 14), having reached the top 10 on the Hot 100 dated Jan. 5 (before it reigned for six weeks), Macklemore and Lewis this week become the only act to place at least one title in the chart's top 10 each week this year (24 weeks in all in that span). The rapper and producer had shared the feat with Bruno Mars, who'd achieved the distinction with "Locked Out of Heaven" and "When I Was Your Man." (All four songs spent time atop the Hot 100). "Man," however, falls out of the top tier this week (10-11).

After four weeks of no movement in the Hot 100's top three, Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors" contributes to a slight shake-up, lifting 3-2. Passing the No. 3 peak of his previous single "Suit & Tie," featuring Jay-Z, Timberlake tallies his highest rank since "Dead and Gone," on which he assisted T.I., peaked at No. 2 in early 2009. He last placed higher as a guest, with Nelly Furtado, on Timbaland's two-week No. 1 "Give It to Me" in April 2007. A month earlier, he'd crowned the chart with his own "What Goes Around…Comes Around."

"Mirrors" tops Radio Songs for a third week (up 2% to 154 million, his best weekly audience for any of his singles), while dropping 9-10 on Digital Songs (131,000, down 7%) and 10-12 on Streaming Songs (3.2 million, down 9%).

As Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories" notches a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, the set's lead single, "Get Lucky," featuring Pharrell Williams, rises 4-3 with top Streaming Gainer kudos for a third straight week. The track scores a second week at No. 1 on the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (2.2 million, up 2%) and jumps 3-2 on Streaming Songs (5.6 million, up 9%), 5-4 on Digital Songs (190,000, up 5%) and 12-8 on Radio Songs (64 million, up 22%), marking the duo's first Radio Songs top 10. "Get Lucky" registers a third week at No. 1 on Dance/Electronic Songs and a second on top of Dance/Club Play Songs (3-1), where it's the first title to claim multiple weeks at the summit since Rihanna's "We Found Love," featuring Calvin Harris (Nov. 19-26, 2011). ("Found" topped the Hot 100 for 10 weeks, Rihanna's longest command on the chart.)

P!nk's previously noted former three-week No. 1 "Reason" descends 2-4 on the Hot 100, while Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise," featuring Nelly, stays at its No. 5 peak in its 35th week. "Cruise" docks at No. 10 on Radio Songs (down from No. 9, although with an 11% gain to 62 million). It backtracks 2-3 on Digital Songs (196,000, down 1%) and climbs 16-14 on Streaming Songs (although with a 7% loss to 2.8 million). The track tops Hot Country Songs for a 14th week.

Thicke boasts the lone new entry in the Hot 100's top 10, as "Blurred Lines" blasts 11-6 with top Airplay Gainer honors. The sultry song surges 46-17 on Radio Songs with a 68% gain to 48 million. It concurrently becomes his first Digital Songs No. 1 (3-1) via a 20% increase to 229,000. On Streaming Songs, the cut climbs 33-25 (2.1 million, up 16%).

Thicke had previously peaked as high as No. 14 on the Hot 100 with his first entry, "Lost Without U," in 2007. "Blurred Lines" featured act Williams – also at No. 3 on Daft Punk's "Get Lucky"– adds his sixth Hot 100 top 10 (after collecting his first four in 2003-06), and his first set of concurrent top 10s, while T.I. tallies his 11th and first since the aforementioned "Dead and Gone" (2009).

Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It" retreats from its No. 6 peak to No. 7, although it climbs 10-9 on Radio Songs (64 million, up 18%); Imagine Dragons'"Radioactive" rebounds 9-8, while ruling Hot Rock Songs for an 11th week; Icona Pop's "I Love It," featuring Charli XCX, regresses to No. 9 from its No. 7 highpoint, although it charges 6-5 on Radio Songs (89 million, up 5%); and, Rihanna's former No. 3 hit "Stay," featuring Mikky Ekko, falls 8-10; since debuting at No. 57 the week of Feb. 23, the ballad has spent its subsequent 16 weeks in the top 10.


Alice in Chains, John Fogerty and Little Mix all make Top 5 debuts, while Daft Punk holds at Number 1.

Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories" holds at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a second week, as the set shifts another 93,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's down 73% in its second week, a not alarming sophomore frame decline, considering a lot of the album's first week was bolstered with digital pre-orders.

Comparably, Daft Punk's second week slide is only slightly less steep that the average fall for No. 1 debuts this year. Of the 15 No. 1 bows so far in 2013, the average second week decline has been 68%. "Random Access Memories" is the seventh No. 1 debut this year to slip by more than 70% in its second week. The largest tumble is owned by Justin Bieber's "Believe" (79.4%) while the lightest fall belongs to Josh Groban's "All That Echoes" (50.4%).

At No. 2 this week on the Billboard 200 is Alice in Chains, which claims its highest charting set since 1995, as "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" starts in the runner-up slot with 61,000. The rock band last went higher with its 1995 self-titled album, which debuted at No. 1 on the tally dated Nov. 25, 1995. Its new release is its second with lead singer William DuVall, following 2009's No. 5-peaking "Black Gives Way to Blue." That album may have started lower than "Devil," but its sales were stronger out of the gate: 126,000.

In total, "Devil" is the fifth top 10 set for Alice In Chains, stretching back to 1992's No. 6-peaking "Dirt."

Behind Alice in Chains this week is the also-debuting John Fogerty, who logs his highest bow ever, as "Wrote a Song for Everyone" starts at No. 3 with 51,000. It's the veteran rocker's highest charting album (and first top 10) since 1985's "Centerfield" climbed to No. 1. The new set features an all-star line up of guest artists duetting with Fogerty on his own classics like "Fortunate Son" (with Foo Fighters) and "Proud Mary" (with Jennifer Hudson).

The third and final debut in the top 10 is at No. 4, by British vocal quartet Little Mix, with their debut set "DNA" (50,000). It's the highest debut ever for a British female group's first album, surpassing the No. 6 arrival of Spice Girls'"Spice" in 1997. "DNA" was led by the single "Wings," which reached No. 26 on the Pop Songs airplay chart (known as Mainstream Top 40 on billboard.biz).

Overall, Little Mix has the highest start for any female group's debut album since 2006, when Danity Kane's self-titled set started at No. 1.

Little Mix won the 2011 British version of "The X Factor," the same show that brought us their SYCO/Columbia Records label mates One Direction. The latter came in third place on the 2010 series.

Blake Shelton's "Based on a True Story" rises 16-5 with 42,000 -- up 69% -- in the wake of his NBC charity special "Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert." The charity show, benefiting victims of the recent Oklahoma tornados, was organized by the star and aired on live on May 29 at 9 PM.

"Healing in the Heartland" featured performances by Shelton, his wife Miranda Lambert, Usher, Reba McEntire, Luke Bryan and more. The one-hour broadcast earned 8.4 million total TV viewers on NBC according to Nielsen and was the most-watched show of the night. NBC said that 13.2 million tuned in to at least a portion of the concert across NBC and its sister networks Bravo, CMT, E!, G4 and Style.

Shelton's album also grows in part to his May 27 performance on NBC's "The Voice," where he's also a coach. He sang his latest hit, "Boys 'Round Here." On the Digital Songs chart, the tune climbs 11-9 with 147,000 downloads sold (up 36%) for Shelton's highest sales week yet for a song. It surpasses the 139,000 debut of 2011's "Honey Bee."

Back on the Billboard 200 albums chart, Darius Rucker's "True Believers" falls 2-6 in its second week (41,000; 51%) while the soundtrack to "The Great Gatsby" slips 5-7 (36,000; down 33%). Imagine Dragons'"Night Visions" rises 13-8 (33,000; up 22%) thanks in part to an iTunes promotion. The band released its new "iTunes Sessions" EP through the retailer last week, which bows at No. 56 with 7,000.

Closing out the top 10 on the Billboard 200: Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" holds at No. 9 (31,000; down 26%) and Vampire Weekend's "Modern Vampires of the City" falls 7-10 (29,000; down 40%).

Over on the Digital Songs chart, Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," featuring T.I. and Pharrell, jumps 3-1 with 229,000 downloads sold (up 20%). It's the first No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart for Thicke, while T.I. clocks his fourth leader, and Pharrell nets his second.

Leaping 19-2 is 2 Chainz's "We Own It (Fast & Furious)," featuring Wiz Khalifa, with 208,000 (up 138%). It's the best sales week yet for 2 Chainz. The song is from the "Fast & Furious 6" soundtrack and film, which clocked a second weekend atop the U.S. and Canada box office chart this past weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. Through June 3, the film has raked in $174 million, making it the fifth-highest grossing movie of the year.

Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" slips 2-3 on Digital Songs with 196,000 (down 1%), Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" (featuring Pharrell Williams) rises 5-4 with 190,000 (up 5%) and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis'"Can't Hold Us" (featuring Ray Dalton) slides 1-5 with 184,000 (down 13%).

Imagine Dragons'"Radioactive" climbs 8-6 (159,000; up 7%), Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It" dips 6-7 (158,000; down 8%) and P!nk's "Just Give Me a Reason" (featuring Nate Ruess) descends 4-8 (150,000; down 19%).

Blake Shelton's "Boys 'Round Here" (featuring Pistol Annies and Friends) rises 11-9 (147,000; up 36%) while Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors" closes out the top 10, sliding 9-10 with 131,000 (down 7%).

Overall album sales in this past chart week (ending June 2) totaled 4.80 million units, down 7% compared with the sum last week (5.19 million) and down 4% compared with the comparable sales week of 2012 (5.02 million). Year to date album sales stand at 121.40 million, down 5% compared to the same total at this point last year (127.70 million).

Digital track sales this past week totaled 24.24 million downloads, down 1% compared with last week (24.49 million) and down 5% stacked next to the comparable week of 2012 (25.58 million). Year to date track sales are at 579.91 million, down 3% compared to the same total at this point last year (596.86 million).

Next week's Billboard 200 competes with the same week in 2012 when: Adele's "21" returned to No. 1 for a 24th and final week, selling 75,000 (up 30%). The chart's top debut was Alan Jackson's "Thirty Miles West," which entered at No. 2 with 73,000.
