Yet Again, Maroon 5 Are Number 1 and Block Psy at the Top of the Charts

Maroon 5 Spends Eighth Week Atop Hot 100



Like this week's other major popular competition, the incumbent remains in charge atop the Billboard Hot 100.

Maroon 5's "One More Night" spends an eighth week at No. 1, fending off Korean rapper PSY's "Gangnam Style," which logs a seventh straight frame at No. 2.

With its continued command, Maroon 5 doubles its previous longest Hot 100 reign. The group's "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Christina Aguilera, led the list for four weeks last year. (Its other No. 1, "Makes Me Wonder," ruled for three weeks in 2007.)

The race for No. 1 wasn't as close as last week, when just 600 overall chart points separated "Night" and "Style." As "Night" declines by 4% in points and "Style" decreases by 9%, approximately 2,000 points separate the songs this week.

Instrumental in "Night" remaining atop the Hot 100 is that it continues to gain in radio audience, while "Style" decreases in listenership for a second week. "Night" logs a fifth week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart with a 1% increase to 134 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. "Style" dips by 7% to 55 million, falling 13-14 on the ranking.

"Style," meanwhile, maintains its No. 1 standings on the Hot Digital Songs and On-Demand Songs charts, although it and "Night" both decrease in points on each survey.
