Top 10 tracks

TOP 10 TRACKS: As we get closer to the holidays, track sales are warming up, not surprisingly. The big story in the latest tally is A Great Big World and Xtina’s “Say Something,” which zoomed past Pitbull-Ke$ha and Eminem-Rihanna to grab the top spot, with a robust 41% increase, taking the single north of 1 million in just seven weeks. Another ballad, Passenger’s “Let Her Go,” with +11%, also moved up one position to enter the Top 5. Two new entries rounded out the Top 10: Ellie Goulding’s “Burn,” which moved up from #11 in its 21st week, and last week’s offering from Justin Bieber, this one featuring Chance the Rapper; they supplanted Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” and Katy Perry’s “Roar” after long runs. Nothing else in the Top 10 dipped more than 9%, that decline registered by Lorde’s “Royals in week 27.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “White Walls” (62k, +11%) is knocking on the door at #11, and just behind it is Jason Derulo’s “Marry Me,” which rocketed 34-12 behind 68k, a 96% uptick. The Neighbourhood’s “Sweater Weather” (#17-15, 61k, +9%) remained tantalizingly close to the leaders, while American Authors’ “The Best Day of My Life” (#46-21, 51k, +94%) is looking like a good horse to bet on.
