Top 10 tracks

TOP 10 TRACKS: Whoa, this Meghan Trainor record is blowing up, leaving 200k in the dust during the most recent sales week behind a 21% increase and set to easily cross the 1 million threshold in the next accounting. This baby is looking more gigantic by the day, as Epic hits one out of the park. It’ll be interesting to see how “All About the Bass” stacks up against Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” which is going through the roof in its debut week. Then there’s Republic’s Ariana Grande, who has not one, not two, but three records on the leaderboard, with a fourth, the 2.9m-selling smash “Problem,” at #11 behind a 12% uptick. And by the way, Grand Hustle/Def Jam’s Iggy Azalea, who’s featured on “Problem” (duh), has done it again, moving #7-3 with a +17% on the follow-up to her 3.4m-selling “Fancy.” Looking at the Top 10, we can only come to one conclusion: Chicks rule!

1. Meghan Trainor, “All About That Bass” – 198k
2. Jessie J + Ariana Grande + Nicki Minaj, “Bang Bang” – 131k
3. Iggy Azalea f/Rita Ora, “Black Widow” – 125k
4. Ariana Grande f/Zedd, “Break Free” – 116k
5. Sam Smith, “Stay With Me” – 105k
6. Ariana Grande f/Big Sean, “Best Mistake” – 104k
7. Magic!, “Rude” – 104k
8. Clean Bandit f/Jess Glynne, “Rather Be” – 141k
9. Jason Aldean, “Burnin’ It Down” – 93k
10. Sia, “Chandelier” – 93k

Rock isn’t dead, either, kiddies, despite what you may have heard from your younger siblings. Echosmith’s “Cool Kids (Warner Bros.) and KONGOS’ “Come With Me Now” (Epic) have both entered the Top 20 as they flash their crossover moves. (8/21p)
