Ray McDonald's Top 5 for Countdown for Week Ending June 14
Let’s start the journey in fifth place, where Pharrell Williams falls a slot with “Happy.”
The video for this cut has become a global online sensation… It has inspired people the world over to step in front of cameras and dance. One Egyptian rendition has collected more than 1.1 million hits…among the highest in the region. It also replaces the English lyrics with an Arabic translation.
Taking over fourth place are DJ Snake and Lil Jon, with “Turn Down For What.”
This has become Lil Jon’s biggest hit in a decade. Back in 2004, he reached third place with “Lovers and Friends,” featuring Usher and Ludacris.

The Hot 100
isn’t the only chart where this pair is thriving…this track is an across-the-board hit: it leads Billboard’s
first weekly Twitter Top Tracks chart, becoming the most-shared song on that platform. It also jumps to second place on the Streaming Songs list.
Iggy Azalea arrives at the Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, May 18, 2014, in Las Vegas.

That’s it for today, but the chart never rests! We'll be back with you next week for an all-new lineup.
