As previously reported, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis log a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Can't Hold Us," featuring Ray Dalton, and Daft Punk scores its first top 10 with "Get Lucky," featuring Pharrell Williams. Who else makes news on the Hot 100 and other song charts this week?
-- Lana Del Rey: As the soundtrack to The Great Gatsby spends a second week in the Billboard 200's top five (2-4), two of its songs scale the Hot 100: Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" (59-22), which becomes her first Hot Digital Songs top 10 (19-9; 121,000 downloads sold, up 57%), and Fergie, Q-Tip and GoonRock's "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)," which starts at No. 77 (48,000, up 25%).
-- Robin Thicke: In addition to his guest spot on "Lucky," Williams' current prominence is evident just outside the Hot 100's top 10, as Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines," on which he and T.I. are featured, rockets 54-12 with top Digital Gainer honors. The track soars 23-2 on Hot Digital Songs (206,000 downloads sold, up 204%, according to Nielsen SoundScan) after Thicke performed it on NBC's "The Voice" on May 14. On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, the track soars 16-3.
-- Mariah Carey: The Hot 100's Airplay Gainer award goes to her "#Beautiful," featuring Miguel, which climbs 24-20 in its second week. The lead single from Carey's forthcoming 13th studio album coasts 44-28 on Hot 100 Airplay (42 million audience impressions, up 33%, according to Nielsen BDS) and debuts at No. 41 on Streaming Songs (1.5 million streams, up 223%, according to BDS), although it drops 10-15 on Hot Digital Songs (97,000, down 14%).
Carey sang the song as part of a medley of her hits on last Thursday's (16) "American Idol" season finale. (Keep reading for more on how "Idol" impacts this week's charts.)
-- Anna Kendrick: In its 21st week on the Hot 100, the actress/singer's "Cups (Pitch Perfect's When I'm Gone)" reaches the top 40 (44-36). The song, which rises 31-25 on Mainstream Top 40 and debuts at No. 67 on Hot 100 Airplay (19 million, up 35%), completes the fifth-longest trip to the region by a woman in the Hot 100's nearly 55-year history, a list led by LeAnn Rimes' "Can't Fight the Moonlight" (29 weeks, 2001-02). Of Monsters and Men's "Little Talks" took the most scenic route to the Hot 100's top 40, rising 41-31 in its 30th frame the week of Dec. 29, 2012.
-- Candice Glover: After becoming the 12th "American Idol" champion last week, Glover debuts on multiple Billboard charts with "I Am Beautiful." The ballad starts on R&B Songs at No. 13, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at No. 33, Hot Digital Songs at No. 39 and the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 93. Notably, however, the cut is by far the lowest-debuting of any "Idol" coronation song on the Hot 100. The previous low? Original victor Kelly Clarkson's "A Moment Like This," which began at No. 60 in September 2002. After a small step to No. 52, it vaulted to No. 1 following its first full week of commercial availability. Until this week, Lee DeWyze's cover of U2's "Beautiful Day" (No. 24, 2010) was the second-lowest-starting winner's debut single.
Glover's opening sales sum is also far less than that of last year's "Idol," Phillip Phillips. His "Home" launched with 278,000; "Beautiful" bows with 48,000.
Also "Idol"-related: Clarkson's "People Like Us" enters the Hot 100 at No. 99, as it rises 16-15 on Adult Top 40, and newly-anointed runner-up Kree Harrison's "All Cried Out" debuts on Hot Country Songs at No. 34 (22,000 downloads sold).
-- The Neighbourhood: The group tops Alternative with its debut entry "Sweater Weather." The song is the first introductory leader on the list since the Lumineers leapt to No. 1 with "Ho Hey" in September. "Hey" was the fifth No. 1 for a rookie act last year, following hits by Gotye, fun., Of Monsters and Men and Alex Clare. First-time charting artists scored more No. 1s only in 2010 and 1997 (six each).
Staying on rock radio, Black Sabbath scores its first airplay chart No. 1 as "God Is Dead?" ascends 2-1 on Heritage Rock. The band's Billboard chart history dates to Aug. 29, 1970.
And, Dropkick Murphys' "Rose Tattoo," featuring Bruce Springsteen (No. 25; 17,000 downloads sold) enters Hot Rock Songs at No. 25. The song appears on the band's EP Rose Tattoo: For Boston Charity, all sales of which benefit victims of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings.
