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

Published: Thursday 10th Apr 2014 by Rashad

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:

Billboard Hot 100

1. Pharrell – “Happy”

2. John Legend – “All of Me”

3. Katy Perry – “Dark Horse”

4. Jason Derulo – “Talk Dirty To Me”

5. Idina Menzel – “Let It Go”

6. Bastille’s  – “Pompeii”

7. Lorde – “Team”

8. OneRepublic – “Counting Stars”

9. Aloe Blacc – “The Man”

10. DJ Snake & Lil Jon – “Turn Down for What”

    I wish Pharrell would get his elevator music off the airwaves!!!!!!! I want John legend to get that number one. All of me is an incredible song about love and with all the pop garbage out today, it’s nice and surprising to see john in the top 5

    Congrats to everyone in the top 10! This list shows some variety which I’m glad to see. At this point, I’m over Pharrell’s song but I don’t knock him because the message is uplifting and he’s finally getting his time to shine as an artist outside his stellar work as a producer. As for John Legend, I’m really proud of the success of his single. I can’t believe that a decade after his debut single, Ordinary People dropped, that this is his FIRST top 10. He’s always released great albums over the years with relative success and it’s great to also see him winning today. I really hope his single can hit number one because it’s been a while since such a song has been successful by a black artist.

I’m so proud! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congrats to John and Pharrell. I’m happy for Pharrell’s success, but like one person mentioned above, I’m ready to see John Legend top the charts now. A song like that should be number 1, plus it would be his first number 1 on the Hot 100.

    • Mimi Carey April 10, 2014

      wheres flopmar on the charts?

  12. metzo April 10, 2014

    Pompei is m’y Jam!

  13. JOHNVIDAL April 10, 2014

    It would be unbelievable to see John Legend topping the Hot 100. Who would have thought 3 months ago? Sooooo glad his album is having this second life. Mainstream didn´t seem to care when the song (and others from the album) were released last summer. Congrats.
