​​Things quiet down from here:  DJ Snake and Lil Jon put their feet up and relax, as their double-platinum smash “Turn Down For What” holds at number four. Lil Jon is more than a Grammy-winning producer of party records: he’s also the father of a 16-year-old son, Nathan. He says “When I’m out in the studio I’m Lil Jon, but when I’m at home, I’m Jonathan Smith.” That, my friends, is his real name.

John Legend remains in third place with his former number one hit “All Of Me.” John’s currently on the road here in North America promoting his latest album, Love In The Future. He hits the United Kingdom in October, and in November journeys to Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa.
Ariana Grande performs on stage at the Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, May 18, 2014, in Las Vegas.

​​Still at number two are Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea with “Problem.” The 20-year-old singer-actress gave a dynamite performance last Sunday in Toronto at the MuchMusic Video Awards. Back in April, Ariana confirmed that her second album is finished, but we still have no title or release date.
Iggy Azalea arrives at the Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, May 18, 2014, in Las Vegas.

​​Holding at number one for a third week are Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX with “Fancy.” Iggy’s personal life made the news this week; a man claiming to be her estranged father has surfaced in Australia. Brendon James Kelly posted online photos of Iggy as a child; she says he left the family when she was 10 years old.

 That’s all for now, but you know how it works: come back next week and we'll hit you with an all-new lineup.
