US Chart Roundup: Christina Aguilera Somehow Has A Hit, And Pitbull Is To Blame

Baauer's "Harlem Shake" is #1 for a fourth week, so great job there furthering the country as a force in modern culture, America.

What we really need to talk about is the fact that Christina Aguilera a.) has a Top 20 hit, and 4.) it's by featuring on Pitbull's shitty "Feel This Moment." That trash is up to #13, and every time I hear that a-ha "Take On Me" riff it interpolates on the radio, I think, great job there furthering the country as a force in modern culture, Xtina.

Plus, I love how Christina is now basically only having hits by featuring on other people's songs. She's basically the new Kelly Rowland. In fact, maybe she should feature on a Kelly Rowland single, so Kelly can actually land a hit.

Elsewhere, Icona Pop and Charli XCX's "I Love It," which topped Chart Rigger's 10 Best Pop Singles Of 2012 list, has now climbed to #54 while Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors" rebounds, following his Saturday Night Live performance of the song, and is up to #77.

And speaking of Kelly Rowland, her "Kisses Down Low" debuts down low at #96.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Harlem Shake" - Baauer *4 weeks*
2. "Thrift Shop" - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz
3. "When I Was Your Man" - Bruno Mars
