US Chart Roundup: Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen Bring Their "Good Time" To The Top 10

Both Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen land their second Top 10 singles this week with their duet "Good Time." (It climbs from #13 to #9.) And each of them previously topped the Billboard Hot 100 — Owl City in 2009 with "Fireflies," and Carly Rae, of course, ruled this past summer with "Call Me Maybe."

And good for them, since the two 26-year-olds have been pimping this shit out like crazy — they performed "Good Time" on America's Got Talent, the Today Show, the Tonight Show and Conan in the past week alone.

Here they are on Conan last night:

Owl City's third album The Midsummer Station debuted at #7 on the Top 200 this week. If you didn't pick up that Shooting Stars EP of his I mentioned in the Spring, "Gold" and "Take It All Away" are two decent songs (also on The Midsummer Station) worth checking out.

The U.S. Top 10:

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