Top 10 tracks

TOP 10 TRACKS: It was a chilly week in Singles Land following the post-Thanksgiving gobbling of downloads, as every one of the Top 10 tracks slipped in week-over-week sales. The positioning of the four top sellers remained static, and the only “new” entry was Avicii’s “Wake Me Up,” which had slipped to #11 on the previous chart. The only other points of interest were the continuing strength of A Great Big World and Xtina’s “Say Something,” which once again finished right behind the dynamic duos of Pitbull-Ke$ha and Eminem-Rihanna despite a probably brief downtick of 16%, and the fact that Passenger and Lorde finished in a virtual tie for #6. 

1. Pitbull f/Ke$ha, “Timber” – 193k
2. Eminem f/Rihanna, “Monster” – 186k
3. A Great Big World f/Xtina, “Say Something” – 165k
4. OneRepublic, “Counting Stars” – 146k
5. One Direction, “Story of My Life” – 108k
6. Passenger, “Let Her Go” – 107k
6. Lorde, “Royals” – 107k
8. Imagine Dragons, “Demons” – 94k
9. Avicii, “Wake Me Up” – 78k
10. Katy Perry, “Roar” – 68k

The biggest-selling track to actually register an increase was #13 “White Walls,” the latest from the Lords of DIY, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, which moved 62k (+2%). A pair of seasonal singles made the Top 20: #19 “Little Drummer Boy” from the sizzling Pentatonix (+152%) and Mariah Carey’s latter-day standard “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which went 66-20 behind 47k (+63%).
