SALES UPDATE:
TOP 10 TRACKS

RCA’s banner singles year got another jolt of adrenaline last week with the debut of another track enhanced by a featured artist—Britney SpearsIggy Azalea-assisted “Pretty Girls,” which debuted just south of six figures. Whether this tandem, taking the place of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars, avoids the standard second-week dip remains to be seen. Britney joins labelmates Walk the Moon, who’ve taken a long-term lease on the leaderboard. Another fixture, Republic’s The Weeknd, rose 14% during a down week.

  1. Wiz Khalifa f/Charlie Pluth, “See You Again” – 251k
  2. Walk the Moon, “Shut Up + Dance” – 135k
  3. Petty Wap, “Trap Queen” – 120k
  4. Jason Derulo, “Want to Want Me” – 102k
  5. T-Wayne, “Nasty Freestyle” – 101k
  6. Britney Spears f/Iggy Azalea, “Pretty Girls” – 96k
  7. The Weeknd, “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)” – 95k
  8. Andy Grammer, “Honey I’m Good” – 94k
  9. David Guetta f/Nicki Minaj & Afrojack, “Hey Mama” – 90k
  10. Maroon 5, “Sugar” – 83k

Tove Lo’s latest, “Talking Body” (Island) appears to be headed for the Top 10, its momentum goosed by a well-timed iTunes 69-cent sale. The track moved 78k with a 22% pickup, settling at #12.
