US Chart Roundup: Have Taylor Swift & Adam Levine Done Sex Yet?

Taylor Swift's decidedly pop "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" is now the tenth song to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this year, and it gets there after selling 623,000 downloads in its first week of availability. Clearly America needs this broad to guide the people through breakups.

Taylor's single now holds second place among all-time best sales weeks for a digital single, behind "Right Round" Flo Rida, which sold 636,000 back in February 2009. That's a song best remembered for the emergence of soul legend Ke$ha.

Meanwhile, Maroon 5's "One More Night" — which, like Swift's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," is a Max Martin/Shellback co-production — jumps up to #9, giving the band two Top 10 hits at the moment. And, god, is that song blase or what?

But, really, this brings me to the main point: has Adam Levine rammed Taylor's candy socket yet? Because you just know there's at least a #7 hit in her for when they break up.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" - Taylor Swift *1 week*
2. "Whistle" - Flo Rida
3. "Lights" - Ellie Goulding
4. "Call Me Maybe" - Carly Rae Jepsen
5. "Wide Awake" - Katy Perry
6. "Some Nights" - fun.
7. "Payphone" - Maroon 5 feat. Wiz Khalifa
8. "As Long As You Love Me" - Justin Bieber
9. "One More Night" - Maroon 5
10. "Titanium" - David Guetta feat. Sia
