Finally, there is some moving-and-shaking on the Billboard Hot 100!
After weeks of saying newcomer Lorde reign with her blockbuster debut single ‘Royals’, the single is abdicated from its Billboard throne by the unlikeliest of opponents – Miley Cyrus.
Thanks to a viral parody video, Cyrus reclaims her spot atop the singles chart with ‘Wrecking Ball’ – much to the dismay of Eminem and Rihanna fans who were sure the duo’s latest ‘Monster’ hit would scare Lorde from the #1 position. They needn’t worry, however. For, upon debut of its accompanying video, it may be gifted the much needed lift.
Elsewhere on the charts the likes of Kanye West, Pitbull, and One Direction have seen considerable gains and may also be in line to challenge Cyrus’ renewed reign. Unlike them, Cyrus’ former top two contenders – Katy Perry and Lady Gaga – are seeing their respective megahits ‘Roar’ and ‘Applause’ slide downward on charts with the latter finally losing its long-held grip on the top 10.
This week’s full chart check below:

Fans have fallen in love with Pitbull’s new Ke$ha-assisted single ‘Timber’ - that is, of course, if you’re judging by the song’s current top 10 placement on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Now, in a bid to push the tune to the top of the tally’s ranking, the duo have finally premiered its accompanying music video. Fresh from their electrifying performance at last night’s American Music Awards, the music video serves as the first official single from the Miami rapper’s new EP ‘Meltdown’ (available today).
Was it worth the wait? You tell us:

While album sales have and will always hold more weight than single sales, the last decade has birthed acts who have seen their singles make quite a pretty profit for their supporting labels- by way of deals that see these companies take a sizeable piece of those artists commercial pies.
So, one doesn’t have to wonder why Peter Edge‘s ‘RCA Records’ now hold Pitbull in high regard, despite his inability to replicate his Hot 100 success story on the Billboard 200.
For, thanks to his Dance dominated discography, the Pop emcee has now seen sales of his single fist pump past the 40 million mark!
