US Chart Roundup: Clean Bandit's #97 Triumph!

Well, well, well. No sooner does my classy interview with UK beats 'n' violins troupe Clean Bandit go online than they finally crack the Billboard Hot 100 with their European smash "Rather Be"...at the soaring height of #97! The US is about the only country the song hadn't quite hit yet, so set off a few firecrackers and start twerking in celebration, chyldryn!

It's a big week for Brits on the chart, as "Problem" featuree Charli XCX climbs into the Top 40 for the first time as a lead artist, with "Boom Clap." The synthy Fault In Our Stars soundtrack is up to #29.

Ahead of Charli, Disclosure and Sam Smith's "Latch" reaches a new high of #14. Only a few more chart positions to go before the house jam both surpasses the #11 peak the single had in the UK and gives Smith a second Top 10 hit in the States. Well, holy fuck.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Fancy" - Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX *4 weeks*
2. "Problem" - Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea
3. "Rude" - MAGIC!
4. "All Of Me" - John Legend
5. "Wiggle" - Jason Derulo feat. Snoop Dogg
6. "Turn Down For What" - DJ Snake & Lil Jon
7. "Am I Wrong" - Nico & Vinz
