US Chart Roundup: Fifth Harmony Finally Crack The Top 40, Plus 2014's Best-Selling Singles

Third time has proved to be a charm for vyxyn troupe Fifth Harmony, who finally cracked the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 this week with single number three. The Meghan Trainor co-write "Sledgehammer" climbs to #40 in its fifth week on the chart, besting the #76 and #43 positions of 5H's respective previous singles, "Miss Movin' On" and "BO$$".



To be honest, it's their best effort to-date, so well done, dolls.

The rest of the chart remains pretty stagnant this week, so why not take a look at what wound up being the 10 best-selling singles of 2014:

* "Happy" - Pharrell Williams (6.45 million downloads)
* "All Of Me" - John Legend (4.67 million)
* "Dark Horse" - Katy Perry feat. Juicy J (4.43 million)
* "All About That Bass" - Meghan Trainor (4.36 million)
* "Fancy" - Iggy Azalea feat. Charli XCX (3.97 million)
* "Talk Dirty" - Jason Derulo feat. 2 Chainz (3.96 million)
* "Turn Down For What" - DJ Snake & Lil Jon (3.45 million)
* "Shake It Off" - Taylor Swift (3.43 million)
* "Let It Go" - Idina Menzel (3.37 million)
* "Stay With Me" - Sam Smith (3.34 million)

And below is this week's Top 10. Have a grand New Year's Day!
