Top 10 tracks

TOP 10 TRACKS: What do they call this in soccer? Oh, right—a friendly. Looks like we’re in for an in-house battle of Columbia smashes between Pharrell’s “Happy,” which is oh so gradually losing attitude—although moving nearly 300k digits after umpteen weeks is hardly cause for lamentation—and John Legend’s “All of Me,” which is still ascending, if only by 1%. Will Legend succeed his labelmate on the top perch in the next week or two, or will some other record crash the party? As usual, we have no clue, but considering the fact that Luke Bryan’s “Play It Again” is the only Top 10 entry on a noticeably upward trajectory (+40%), the next chart-topper could be something shiny and new…

1. Pharrell Williams, “Happy” – 284k
2. John Legend, “All of Me” – 228k
3. Jason Derulo f/2 Chainz, “Talk Dirty” – 156k
4. Idina Menzel, “Let It Go” – 154k
5. Katy Perry f/Juicy J, “Dark Horse” – 122k
6. Aloe Blacc, “The Man” – 106k
7. DJ Snake & Lil Jon, “Turn Down for What” – 96k
8. Luke Bryan, “Play It Again” – 88k
9. Bastille, “Pompeii” – 85k
10. The Chainsmokers, “#Selfie” – 79k

As for the possible contenders, don’t count out Florida Georgia Line, another post-cowboy-hat country act, whose “This Is How We Roll” (#10-11, 78k, +1%) is rumored to be undergoing a cross-genre remix a la the previous “Cruise” with Nelly; Justin Timberlake’s “Not a Bad Thing” (#14-12, 75k, +16%); or a pair of Capitol rookies in Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me" (#37-17, 60k, +64%) and 5 Seconds of Summer’s debuting “She Looks So Perfect” (#26, 51k), both of which appear to be positioned for extended stays on the big board.
