TGJ Chart Check: Wiz Khalifa & Britney Spears Make Impressive Moves On Hot 100

This week’s Hot 100 sees ‘See You Again’ – the latest hit from Wiz Khalifa – in the #1 spot again. Notching his fifth week at the tally’s perch, the emcee clocks the longest run at #1 by a rapper since Eminem reigned with his Rihanna-assisted number ‘Love the Way You Lie’ in 2010.

With no indication of slowing down anytime soon, the ‘Fast and the Furious’ soundtrack number leads a fairly stagnant, male dominated top 5 with The Weekend, Fetty Wap, and Bruno Mars helping fill out the rest of the space.

Elsewhere on charts, the week’s most talked about entry – Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea‘s ‘Pretty Girls’ – is sitting pretty in the top 30 with an impressive debut fueled mostly by sales.  Before we find out the boost it receives courtesy of its accompanying music video (which was unveiled yesterday), tuck in below to see this week’s refreshed Billboard Hot 100 top 10:

TGJ Chart Check: Wiz Khalifa, Bruno Mars, & Fifth Harmony Have History-Making Week On Hot 100

Nicki Minaj Back In Top 20 Alongside David Guetta As Rihanna Falls Out of Top 30

Bruno Mars’ may have fallen three weeks short of dethroning Mariah Carey for longest run at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, but he still has much to celebrate.  For, in addition to ‘Uptown Funk’ tying at second place for longest run on the tally’s perch, it now reigns as the song with the longest run in the top 3 of Hot 100 history.

With this week notching its whopping 21st week in the top 3, the tune extends its lead in front of nearest competitors (Santana, Toni Braxton, and Carey) for the title.

Elsewhere on charts, the boys are proving they still run this mutha- as Wiz Khalifa holds tight to the #1 spot for a fourth week and is followed by rapper Fetty Wap‘s ‘Trap Queen.’  The rappers’ reign over the chart comes as the first time in 6 years two emcees have concurrently held the #1 and #2 spot (see:  2009’s ‘Right Round’ by Flo Rida and T.I.‘s ‘Dead & Gone’).

But, if the boys thought they were the only ones celebrating this week, they have another thing coming – just ask Fifth Harmony.  The female quintet saw their Kid Ink-assisted single ‘Worth It’ climb 11 spots to #21!  An impressive feat as the ladies are the first and only girl group this decade to notch a top 30 hit.

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’ has upped the number of names listed on its songwriting credits, Billboard reports.

The move, prompted by legal claims put in motion by hit 70s/80s R&B group Gap Band, comes as the song continues worldwide domination of charts despite recently ending a 14-week run at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

Chart Check: Wiz Khalifa Continues Control of Hot 100 As Rihanna Notches New Top 20

rihanna-wiz khalifa-thatgrapejuice

2014 proved that girls really did run the world as the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 consistently listed more female tenants than their male counterparts for most of the year.  2015 is looking to show otherwise with this week bringing the first time since June 2013 that no female singer was listed in the Billboard’s Hot 100 top 5.

After an impressive 14 week tenure at the #1 spot, last week shared news that Bruno Mars’ monster hit ‘Uptown Funk’ moved downtown to #2 – dethroned by Wiz Khalifa‘s newest hit ‘See You Again.’  A fitting title as this week’s refreshing of the tally sees him again holding tight to the #1 spot, a career highlight unknown to the rapper since his monster 2010 hit ‘Black and Yellow.’

Leading an all-male top 5, Khalifa may not want to get too comfortable in his #1 position as recent gains from the likes of The Weeknd, Jason Derulo, and Rihanna may prove themselves viable threats.
