It's the record that just won't die. Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive" rebounds from #33 to #13 in its 75th week on the Hot 100. The smash is just one week away from tying Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" for the longest chart run in Hot 100 history. The band performed the song on the Grammys in a mash-up with Kendrick Lamar's "m.A.A.d city." (That hit, which features MC Eiht, is also experiencing a resurgence. It re-enters the chart at #75—higher than its original peak at #94.)
"Radioactive" has sold 6,494,000 copies, which is the 18th highest total of the Nielsen SoundScan era. And it's still going strong. It sold 208K copies this week, its highest weekly tally since June. (The song's sales peaked in the week ending March 31, 2013, when it sold 235K copies.)
Imagine Dragons' "On Top Of The World" debuts at #100. It's the fourth Hot 100 single from the band's debut album, "Night Visions." It follows "It's Time" (#15), "Radioactive (#3) and "Demons" (#6).
The big news on this week's Hot 100 is that "Drunk In Love" by Beyonce featuring Jay Z vaults from #13 to #2. I covered that, and the rest of the top 10 action, in a Chart Watch blog that we posted earlier today. If you missed it, here's a link. This blog is a look at key movers and debuts below the top 10.
Shakira lands her biggest hit since 2009 as "Can't Remember To Forget You" (featuring Rihanna) rebounds from #61 to #15 in its third week. It's already Shakira's best showing since "She Wolf" hit #11 in September 2009.
John Legend lands his highest-charting hit to date as "All of Me" jumps from #27 to #17 in its 17th week. It surpasses "Ordinary People" (#24 in 2005) and "Green Light" (#24 in 2008). (There's a pop and jazz standard titled "All Of Me." The song originated in the 1932 rom-com "Careless Lady." Louis Armstrong and his Orchestra and Paul Whiteman and his Orchestra both had big hits with it that year.)
Sara Bareilles' "Brave" jumps from #26 to #23 (its highest ranking to date) in its 34th week. Bareilles performed the song on the Grammys in a medley with Carole King, who performed her 1971 classic "Beautiful." It was an inspired pairing…Miley Cyrus' "Adore You" jumps from #30 to #25 in its eighth week…Luke Bryan's "Drink A Beer" holds at #35 for the second week in its 13th week. It's #1 on Hot Country Songs for the fourth week.
Bruno Mars lands his fourth top 40 hit from "Unorthodox Jukebox" as "Young Girls" jumps from #54 to #38 in its fifth week. You may be surprised to learn that Mars pulled just three top 40 hits from his debut album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans" (but they were biggies.)
Hunter Hayes' "Invisible" leaps from #88 to #44 in its second week. It's vying to become the fourth song with that title to crack the top 40. Ashlee Simpson took a song by that title to #21 in 2006. Alison Moyet's "Invisible" reached #31 in 1985. Clay Aiken's song with that title hit #37 in 2004.
"Odio" by Romeo Santos featuring Drake is the week's top new entry at #45. It's the second Hot 100 hit from Santos' second studio album, "Formula, Vol. 2."
Kacey Musgraves lands her highest-charting hit to date as "Follow Your Arrow" debuts at #60. It's the week's second highest new entry. Musgraves' "Merry Go Round" peaked at #63. "Follow Your Arrow" created a stir in the country field with its casual approach to gay rights and marijuana use. It's not the first country song to take a stand on gay rights. Among the first was Garth Brooks' "We Shall Be Free," which reached #12 on the country chart in 1992.
One Direction's "Midnight Memories" re-enters the chart at #68. It has already climbed as high as #12 … "Confident" by Justin Bieber featuring Chance The Rapper re-enters the chart at #69. It has already climbed as high as #41. (Far more than a hit, Bieber needs some time off to rest and get his head on straight. Scooter Braun, are you listening?)
Keith Urban's "Cop Car" debuts at #74. It's vying to become the third top 40 hit from "Fuse," following "Little Bit Of Everything" (#33) and "We Were Us" with Miranda Lambert (#26).
Eric Church's "A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young" debuts at #89. It's the third Hot 100 hit from his fourth studio album, "The Outsiders," which is due Feb. 11. Will that become Church's second album in a row to enter The Billboard 200 at #1? Place your bets.
K. Michelle's "Can't Raise A Man" debuts at #94. It's the second Hot 100 hit from her debut album, "Rebellious Soul." "VSOP" reached #89.
