US Chart Roundup: Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" Becomes Their First Top 10 Hit

Outside of the the sample on Kanye West's "Stronger," this marks the first week where Daft Punk are in the Top 10. "Get Lucky," a song that's already topped several countries' charts, has jumped up to #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. It's a far sexier position than #61, which is where both "Around The World" and "One More Time" (the duo's only other Hot 100 entries to date) peaked.

Yes, it's a week for pop miracles, as even Mariah Carey manages to move into the Top 20 — albeit at #20 — with her Miguel pair-up "#Beautiful." Whistle-shriek that shit to the bank, Mimi.

Another one I wouldn't have predicted: now that The Great Gatsby is a box office hit, Lana Del Rey's "Young And Beautiful" flies up from #59 to #22. Like Daft Punk, Lana is now experiencing her first Top 40 hit, stateside.

On a final note, Capital Cities' "Safe And Sound," a single I've been championing forever, inches up to #90. Below is their latest video for the song. (This one has a nice budget.)

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Can't Hold Us" - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Ray *3 weeks*
2. "Just Give Me A Reason" - Pink feat. Nate Ruess
3. "Mirrors" - Justin Timberlake 
4. "When I Was Your Man" - Bruno Mars
5. "Stay" - Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko 
6. "Cruise" - Florida Georgia Line feat. Nelly
7. "Come & Get It" - Selena Gomez
