U.S. Chart Roundup: "Lean On" Is My Jam

I feel like Major Lazer, DJ Snake and 's "Lean On" is the best song of the summer, as far as overplayed Top 40 nonsense goes, and so I'm thrilled to see it jump into the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 this week (at #9). It's the first Top 10 single for all involved except DJ Snake, who had that painfully obnoxious "Turn Down For What" trash last year that somehow slithered its way to #4.

Everything else on the Hot 100 is kind of super butt this week — especially the fact that my other favorite jam of the summer, Demi Lovato's "Cool For The Summer," has slid down to #30. That's, chyldryn, is a crime. But the video premiere is right around the corner, so hopefully the song will get somewhat of a bump after that.

Down in the nether regions, Adam Lambert's "Ghost Town" moves back up from #80 to #74, one notch lower than its original #73 peak position.

Geez, between Demi and Adam, Max Martin is losing his touch.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix)" - OMI *2 weeks*
2. "Can't Feel My Face" - The Weeknd
3. "See You Again" - Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth
4. "Bad Blood" - Taylor Swift feat. Kendrick Lamar
5. "Watch Me" - Silento
6. "Trap Queen" - Fetty Wap
7. "Shut Up And Dance" - Walk The Moon
8. "Fight Song" - Rachel Platten
9. "Lean On" - Major Lazer & DJ Snake feat. MØ
10. "The Hills" - The Weeknd
