US Chart Roundup: Your Daughters (& Sons) Probably Wanna Get Fucked Hard By Rixton, America

The upper reaches of the Billboard Hot 100 remain pretty much the same this week, save for Beyonce's "Drunk In Love" finally getting bumped out of the Top 10 by DJ Snake and Lil Jon's "Turn Down For What"...which, by the way, have you seen the video for that trash? It might be the most fucked-up think you'll watch this year.

Looking elsewhere, Justin Timberlake's "Not A Bad Thing" slides up to #20 and becomes his 12th Top 20 single as a lead artist, his 20th overall as a solo artist (including all his features) and his 29th if we throw the *NSYNC jams in there.

Below that, Naughty Boy and Sam Smith's "La La La" inches up to #31, while Lady Gaga's third ARTPOP single "G.U.Y." debuts #76. That's gotta be based on YouTube views alone, because so far that song has yet to crack the top 100 on iTunes.

On a final note, the latest British boy band to come down the conveyor belt, Rixton, crack the stateside market with "Me And My Broken Heart," which goes in at #87. This is just kind of a knockoff of Cat Stevens' "Wild World," no?

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Happy" - Pharrell Williams *6 weeks*
2. "All Of Me" - John Legend
3. "Dark Horse" - Katy Perry feat. Juicy J
4. "Talk Dirty" - Jason Derulo feat. 2 Chainz
5. "Let It Go" - Idina Menzel
6. "Pompeii" - Bastille
7. "Team" - Lorde
8. "The Man" - Aloe Blacc
9. "Counting Stars" - OneRepublic
10. "Turn Down For What" - DJ Snake & Lil Jon

    I think it's so strange that "Team" is seemingly locked into that 7-9 window. Why won't it rise or fall?
