US Chart Roundup: I Love My (Next) White Trash Husband Macklemore

Somehow, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have become the first duo in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to chart at #1 with their first two singles. You'd think this feat would have happened before with someone far classier, but I'm still glad that My (Next) White Trash Husband Macklemore is able to pop a box of Frangia and celebrate.

And so the pair's "Can't Hold Us" knocks Pink and Nate Ruess' "Just Give Me A Reason" off the top of the chart after the latter's three-week reign. Meanwhile, one of the year's best singles so far, Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors," slides up to #3, while Icona Pop and Charli XCX's "I Love It," Chart Rigger's top pick on our Best Singles list last year, climbs to #7.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Can't Hold Us" - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis feat. Ray *1 week*
2. "Just Give Me A Reason" - Pink feat. Nate Ruess
3. "Mirrors" - Justin Timberlake 
4. "Stay" - Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko
5. "When I Was Your Man" - Bruno Mars

7. "I Love It" - Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX
