Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake make strides on Billboard Hot 100
Where does 'Suit & Tie' enter the chart?
Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out Of Heaven” locks the competition out of the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for the sixth consecutive week. But next week it will face serious threats for No. 1 from not only Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, but Justin Timberlake, as well.
The track, from “Unorthodox Jukebox,” holds off a charge from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s “Thrift Shop,” which jumps 5- 2 on the Hot 100. Sales and airplay propel the title to No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, where it knocks Rihanna’s “Diamonds” out of No. 1 after 14 weeks. “Thrift Shop” is also No. 1 on Digital Songs, making it the first independently-distributed tune to top that chart since Artists for Haiti’s “We Are The World 25: For Haiti” in March 2010, according to Billboard.
The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey” rises 4-3, trading places with Taylor Swift’s “I Knew Your Were Trouble.” Rihanna’s “Diamonds” falls 2-5.
Will.i.am and Britney Spears’ “Scream & Shout” rises 8-6. Swedish House Mafia earns its first Top 10 with “Don’t You Worry Child” featuring John Martin surging 11-7. Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and a Beat” featuring Nicki Minaj slides 7-8, Phillip Phillips’ “Home” slips 6-9 and Flo Rida’s “I Cry” holds at No. 10.
So how does Justin Timberlake’s new single, “Suit & Tie” fare? The track debuts at No. 84 based solely on two days of airplay. The tally does not include the 350,000 downloads the track is expected to sell in its first week of release. That’s because Nielsen Soundscan tracks sales from Monday-Sunday, so this week’s sales tracking was completed by the time the track went on sale at midnight Sunday. Conversely, radio information runs Wednesday-Tuesday, so this week’s chart includes the first two days’ worth of radio play. Billboard is predicting that “Suit & Tie” could leap into the Top 5 next week.
