Gomez’s collaboration with Puth holds at No. 4 on the Digital Songs chart (53,000, down 10 percent; it’s on sale for 69 cents in the iTunes Store); pushes 13-12 on Streaming Songs (11.9 million, up 3 percent); and backtracks 16-17 on Radio Songs, but with a 5 percent gain to 64 million.

Gomez and Puth’s single jumps 18-13 on the chart. The single blasts into the Digital Songs sales chart’s top five (21-5), up 71 percent to 57,000 sold, according to Nielsen Music, boosted by 69-cent sale-pricing in the iTunes Store.

The collaboration backtracks 16-17 on the Radio Songs chart, but with a 5 percent lift to 56 million in airplay audience, and it rises 28-23 on the Streaming Songs chart (8.9 million U.S. streams, up 7 percent).

Should Puth and Gomez’s single hit the Hot 100’s top 10, it would become Gomez’s sixth top 10 and Puth’s second.

Gomez’s previous Top 10 singles on the chart include “Good For You” (peaked at No. 5), “Same Old Love” (No. 5), “The Heart Wants What It Wants” (No. 6), “Come & Get It” (No. 6), and “Hands To Myself” (No. 7).

Demi Lovato is cooling her way to the top of the charts…

The 22-year-old part-Mexican American singer/actress’ latest single “Cool for the Summer” rises 3-1 in its second week on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart (dated July 25).

Lovato’s summer-themed single also rises in its second week on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, from No. 36 to No. 28.

“Cool for the Summer” ranks at No. 15 on the Digital Songs chart with 108,000 sold and No. 40 on the Radio Songs chart with 36 million in radio audience (up 29 percent).

The arrival of its lyric video on July 7 also prompts a 185 percent gain in streams to 2.4 million. Surely aiding streams: the clip’s high production value (at least for a lyric video) and pool-party eye candy.

Fifth Harmony Reaches New Best Rank on Billboard Hot 100 Chart

The wait’s been worth it for Ally Brooke Hernandez, Lauren Jauregui and Camila Cabello.

The Latina singers and their fellow Fifth Harmony members have reached a new best rank on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Fifth Harmony

The all-girl group’s latest single, “Worth It,” featuring Kid Ink, rises 41-39 this week to enter the Top 49.

The track tops by one spot the peak of The X Factor finalist’s single “Sledgehammer.”

“Worth It” also pushes 24-22 on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart, despite a 5 percent slip to 48,000, and retreats 47-49 on the Streaming Songs charts, but with a 4 percent increase to 3.6 million.

Mars’ “Uptown Funk” Notches a 12th Week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart

Bruno Mars’ chart-topping run continues…

The 29-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer-songwriter’s collaboration with Mark Ronson, “Uptown Funk,” rules the roost on the Billboard Hot 100 for a twelfth week.

Bruno Mars

Released on RCA Records, “Uptown Funk” becomes only the fifteenth No. 1 in the chart’s five-and-a-half-decade history to rule for at least 12 weeks. It also ties for the longest reign of the 2010s: Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines,” featuring T.I. and Pharrell Williams, also logged a 12-week command beginning in June 2013.

“Uptown Funk” inks a 12th week atop the Digital Songs chart with 187,000 downloads sold (down 1 percent) in the week ending March 22, according to Nielsen Music.  It’s now within one week of tying the record for the most time spent atop Digital Songs: the T-Pain-assisted “Low” by Flo Rida led for a record 13 weeks in 2007-08.

“Uptown Funk” leads the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart (4.6 million U.S. streams, down 6 percent) for an 11th week and Streaming Songs (19.1 million, up 13 percent) for a 10th, adding top Streaming Gainer honors on the Hot 100. Helping fuel its burst in streams: a clip that YouTuber Carson Dean created (featuring the song’s audio), in which he dances, and gets in a good cardio workout, on a treadmill. It drew 2.2 million U.S. clicks in the chart’s tracking week.

On Radio Songs, “Uptown Funk” reigns for a ninth week with 173 million in all-format audience (down 3 percent).

Ronson and Mars’ smash, therefore, leads the Hot 100 and its three main component charts (Digital Songs, Radio Songs and Streaming Songs) simultaneously for a record-extending eighth week (non-consecutively).

Twelve weeks into its Hot 100 reign, “Uptown Funk” manages to widen its lead at No. 1, as it’s up by 3 percent in overall activity, while Maroon 5‘s “Sugar,” at its No. 2 peak for a second week, dips by 4 percent. “Sugar” holds at No. 2 on Digital Songs (156,000, down 13 percent) and No. 4 on both Radio Songs (129 million, up 5 percent) and Streaming Songs (9.8 million, down 1 percent).

Gomez Releases “Therapeutic” New Single “The Heart Wants What It Wants”

Selena Gomez is getting to the heart of the matter…

The 22-year-old half-Mexican American has released a new single, “The Heart Wants What It Wants,” along with its official video.

Selena Gomez

Gomez’s new track is one of the new singles that forms part of her first best-of collection, For You, due November 24.

The set includes prior singles and remixes of previously-released songs, along with the new “The Heart Wants What It Wants,” which enters Billboard Hot 100 chart as the Hot Shot Debut at No. 25.

The song is being credited with totally helping change Gomez’s perspective on her roller coaster relationship with her ex Justin Bieber.

“The song was very therapeutic for her,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com. “It let her share her feelings and let it all out. It didn’t really make her miss Justin though, it made her realize that she should get over him.”

“The Heart Wants What It Wants” begins on Digital Songs chart at No. 6 with 102,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and Streaming Songs at No. 37 with 3.1 million streams.

Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” Reaches No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100

Recent NAACP Image Award three-time nominee Bruno Mars has locked in on the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100

The 27-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer’s single, “Locked Out of Heaven” has moved past Rihanna’s “Diamonds” to reach the No. 1 position in it’s 10th week on the chart.

Bruno Mars

It’s Mars’ fourth chart topper on the Hot 100 since his arrival in the music industry in 2010. His first entry, B.o.B‘s “Nothin’ on You,” on which Mars lent his voice, began a two-week reign the week of May 1, 2010.

His debut album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, which reached No. 3 in a 112-week (and counting) run on the Billboard 200, yielded Mars two Hot 100 No. 1s as a lead artist: “Just the Way You Are” (four weeks, beginning October 2, 2010) and follow-up “Grenade” (four weeks, starting January 8, 2011).

Mars’ amassing of four Hot 100 No. 1s in the span of just two years, 10 months and one week, dating to the February 13, 2010 arrival of “Nothin’ on You” is the fastest collection of a male artist’s first four No. 1s in 48 years.

Bobby Vinton first entered the Hot 100 with “Roses Are Red (My Love)” the week of June 9, 1962. It became his first No. 1 five weeks later. Vinton then added leaders with “Blue Velvet” (1963), “There! I’ve Said it Again” and “Mr. Lonely” (both in 1964). When “Lonely” lifted 2-1 on the Hot 100 dated Dec. 12, 1964 – 48 years ago this week – Vinton had rung up four No. 1s in a stretch of just two years and six months from his first chart appearance.

“Heaven” ascends to No. 1 on the Hot 100 with top Digital Gainer honors, as the song jumps 5-1 on the Digital Songs chart with 197,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan (marking Mars’ fifth Digital Songs No. 1).

It bullets again at No. 2 on Radio Songs with 129 million audience impressions (up 4%) and holds at No. 5 on On-Demand Songs with 890,000 on-demand streams (up 19%), according to BDS.

“Heaven,” the lead single from Mars’ sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox, released this week.
