We’re counting down the five most popular songs on the Billboard Magazine Hot 100 pop singles chart
, for the week ending June 29, 2013.
Ray McDonald's Top 5 Countdown for Week Ending June 29
Last week we welcomed a new champion. Does history repeat itself this week? We'll keep you in suspense for now.
Let’s start in fifth place, where Justin Timberlake slips a slot with “Mirrors.”
Next month, Justin goes on tour with Jay-Z…and that’s not all they have planned. Jay-Z has revealed the track list for his upcoming album Magna Carta Holy Grail
and - no surprise - Justin made the guest list. The two previously collaborated on the song “Suit & Tie.” Jay-Z’s album arrives on July 4, and on the 17th, the pair hit the road on their “Legends Of The Summer” tour.
The most successful rock single of the year is finally in the Top Five. Jumping two slots to fourth place, we've got “Radioactive”
from Imagine Dragons' Night Visions
album. This Las Vegas, Nevada group has gone from playing in half-empty casino showrooms to headlining international venues - and “Radioactive” has surpassed two million downloads here in the United States.
Meanwhile, the slide continues for Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, and Ray Dalton this week, as their former champ “Can’t Hold Us”
dips another slot in third place. June 24, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis announced their upcoming U.S. tour - it kicks off on October 22, and features opening acts Talib Kweli and Big K.R.I.T.
Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams have topped charts worldwide with “Get Lucky,”
and they may get lucky here in the States - they jump another slot to second place this week. The song has topped charts from Australia to Iceland and even if it fails to reach number one here in the United States, Pharrell Williams is still a winner. He shows up atop the Hot 100 for a second week in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,”
also featuring rapper T.I. The trio rules the Hot 100 chart for a second straight week. This marks an impressive return to form for Pharrell, who dominated pop at the turn of the 21st Century as part of the production duo The Neptunes.
That’s it for now, but join us in seven days for an all-new lineup.
