Here’s a list of those artists, in chronological order: Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Bee Gees, Ashanti (one lead, one featured), Nelly, OutKast, 50 Cent (one lead, one featured), Mariah Carey, Akon (one lead, one featured), T.I. and the Black Eyed Peas.
Williams, 40, is a three-time Grammy winner. In February 2004, he and his creative partner Chad Hugo (known collectively as the Neptunes) won two Grammys: Producer of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for Justin Timberlake’s debut, Justified, which they produced. Three years later, Williams and Ludacris shared the award for Best Rap Song for co-writing their hit collabo “Money Maker,” which reached #1 on both the pop and R&B charts.
“Get Lucky” is #1 on Dance/Electronic Songs for the fifth week. The song has sold 1,225,000 copies, which enables it to surpass “One More Time” (1,052,000) to become Daft Punk’s best-seller to date.
“Radioactive” is #1 on Rock Songs for the 13th week. The song has the sound of an instant rock classic in the Coldplay or U2 vein. And when were these bands last in the top five? For Coldplay, it was five years ago with “Viva La Vida.” For U2, it was way back in 1988 with “Desire.” Hits of this magnitude don’t come along very often, no matter who you are.
“Mirrors” is #1 on the all-format Radio Songs chart for the fifth week. Things just never quite came together for the song to reach #1 on the Hot 100. It peaked at #2. But it’s in its 10th week in the top 10 and may give Timberlake’s 2006 hit “My Love” (featuring T.I.) a run for its money as the longest-running top 10 hit of his solo career. That smash held tight for 14 weeks.
“Cruise” has sold 4,299,000 digital copies—more than any other song by a country duo. More than that, it’s currently in fourth place among hits by ongoing duos from any genre. It trails LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” (7,695,000) and “Sexy And I Know It” (6,137,000) and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop,” which is in second place between the two LMFAO hits (6,557,000). Two more songs by ongoing duos rank among the top 200 songs in digital history: Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” (3,401,000) and 3OH!3’s “Don’t Trust Me” (3,322,000).
Florida Georgia Line’s new “Round Here” debuts at #89.
For the second time in four weeks, nothing moved in or out of the top 10. That’s not the easiest neighborhood to break into.
