US Chart Roundup: Clean Bandit Have A Top 40 Hit In America

Clean Bandit make the leap into the Top 40 this week on the Billboard Hot 100, at #32, while Disclosure's "Latch" jumps into the Top 10 at #10, one position higher than where the single peaked in the duo's home country of the UK. It's all pretty significant stuff, as these are the first two songs from the current house music revival going on in pop right now to really break through stateside.

In other news, Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX's "Fancy" is finally toppled after seven weeks at #1 by Toronto pop-reggae outfit MAGIC! and their debut single "Rude."

Earlier this month I got to spend time reading books with MAGIC!...oh, and shooting a performance of theirs for Idolator, which you can watch here and here.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Rude" - MAGIC! *1 week*
2. "Fancy" - Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX
3. "Problem" - Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea
4. "Am I Wrong" - Nico & Vinz
5. "Stay With Me" - Sam Smith
6. "Wiggle" - Jason Derulo feat. Snoop Dogg
7. "All Of Me" - John Legend
8. "Maps" - Maroon 5
9. "Summer" - Calvin Harris 
10. "Latch" - Disclosure feat. Sam Smith
