Chart Check [Hot 100]: Pharrell Williams Reigns, John Legend Gains

1815340362059767caa1641a0ee50d79d50aaeb6 Chart Check [Hot 100]:  Pharrell Williams Reigns, John Legend Gains

Pharrell Williams is undoubtedly happy that his 2014 breakout hit is still leading the Hot 100 for a 7th week.  Fending off competition in the form of John Legend‘s ‘All of Me’, Katy Perry‘s ‘Dark Horse’, and more, the Oscar-nominated jam refuses to loosen its grip on the tally (despite suffering a digital sales dip).

At one time threatening to best the 300k a week digital sales record of Robin Thicke‘s ‘Blurred Lines’ (of which Williams shares co-star ranking with rapper T.I.), “Happy” maybe losing affront Itunes, but it is certainly keeping up a fight elsewhere (see: radio spins, online streams, etc).

But, with talks of fresh gains from ‘Talk Dirty To Me’ maestro Jason Derulo, can that fight last much longer?  Full chart check below:

Weigh In: Digital Downloads Fall, Match CD Sales Slump For First Time In History

Conversely, digital streams gaining steam

Screen shot 2014 04 07 at 10.57.17 PM Weigh In:  Digital Downloads Fall, Match CD Sales Slump For First Time In History

Even jointly, late 2013 blockbusters from the likes of Beyonce, Eminem, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga were not enough to save the fledgling music industry as reports confirm worry that the industry is nearing its darkest days yet.

Predictably, physical CD sales have continued their slump as news has it that the CD album format is down 20.5 percent so far this year (31.9 million units sold from the 40.1 million units scanned in the first quarter of 2013).  But, the once flourishing alternative (i.e. digital sales from outlets like iTunes and Amazon.com) are also reflecting swift and downward movement.  So much so, that its decline is nearly matching the rate of physical CD sale decline for the first time in history.

While the industry nears a state of panic, relief has come via popular streaming outlets like Pandora and Spotify as they boast increases in activity and revenue…

Jermaine Dupri Weighs In On Katy Perry…For Mariah Carey

katy perry that grape juice she is diva 4 Jermaine Dupri Weighs In On Katy Perry...For Mariah Carey

Fickle.

Thanks to the music industry’s fickle nature, ‘seasoned’ acts oft find their positions in today’s world questioned at the first sight of a younger, hotter and seemingly more exciting alternative.

In 2006, much to the horror of both she and then partner Jermaine Dupri, the campaign for Janet Jackson‘s ’20 Y.O’ found itself dominated by a then 25 year old Beyonce, as the media questioned Jackson’s ability to compete with the stage-blazing chart topper.

Indeed, by way of the comparisons, the album’s trend-kissing material and 2004′s ‘Super Bowl’ fiasco, ‘20′ cowered in the face of ‘B’, selling 297,000 units in first week…two weeks after the latter moved 541,000 copies in the very same market.

Then, Dupri sought out to remind the world that the ladies ‘weren’t on the same plane‘, and now- eight years later- history repeats itself.

Whose legacy Jermaine has been forced to defend this time? Mariah Carey‘s.

Hit the 29 minute mark to find out why below…
