Top 10 tracks

TOP 10 TRACKS: The dominant story continues to be Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” which, for the third week in a row, has topped 400k—and that is one shitload of downloads, pardon our French. It should be noted, though, that this smash has leveled out in week-over-week sales for the first time since the game-changing, Diane Martel-directed video hit the Internet. On the other hand, if the track’s apogee is 420k+, Interscope won't have anything to complain about. Will this huge single translate to significant album sales on July 30, or will “Blurred Lines” go down as a single-specific phenomenon? How the hell should we know? But it’s an intriguing question. By the way, the clip for the week’s #2 track, Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop,” was also directed by the previously low-profile Martel. Finally, check out recent arrivals "Cups" and "Same Love," movie-driven and issue-driven, respectively.

1. Robin Thicke, “Blurred Lines” – 422k
2. Miley Cyrus, “We Can’t Stop” – 210k
3. Florida Georgia Line f/Nelly, “Cruise” (remix) – 193k
4. Imagine Dragons, “Radioactive” – 184k
5. Daft Punk f/Pharrell, “Get Lucky” – 179k
6. Bruno Mars, “Treasure” – 144k
7. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, “Can't Hold Us” – 130k
8. Anna Kendrick, “Cups” – 117k
9. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, “Same Love” – 114k
10. Selena Gomez, “Come & Get It” – 101k

No track below the Top 10 surpassed 100k on what was a down sales week overall. But there is some movement below, notably “Safe and Sound” from Capitol’s crossing Capital Cities, which moved nearly 65k to go #28-23 in its 13th week on the chart. Meanwhile, Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop is now north of 6.7m, while AWOLNATION’s “Sail,” still catching a steady breeze three years after release, is closing in on 3.2m. (7/11a)
