US Chart Roundup: It's A Sam Smith World...

Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX hold down the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for a third week with "Fancy," while Charli finally lands a chart hit all by her lonesome with "Boom Clap." Her contribution to the Fault In Our Stars soundtrack, the song goes in at #62.

Also staying put this week is Calvin Harris at #9 with his highest-charting US hit to date, "Summer." More people should be buying that song rather than finger-jamming themselves over "Fancy" and "Problem," if you ask me. Oh, wait — what was that about finger-jamming?

Just below Calvin, at #10, Sam Smith scores his first Top 10 single, stateside, with "Stay With Me." Meanwhile, Disclosure earn their first Top 20 hit (at #17) with "Latch," a song that features Smith on vocals.

Isn't it funny how that works?

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Fancy" - Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX *3 weeks*
2. "Problem" - Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea
3. "All Of Me" - John Legend
4. "Turn Down For What" - DJ Snake & Lil Jon

8. "Am I Wrong" - Nico & Vinz
