Billboard Beats: Baauer’s ‘Harlem Shake’ Is No. 1 for Fifth Week


“Harlem Shake” is like a toxic disease that just can’t be cured. It’s spreading all over but even those of us who are already tired of the song can’t stop scratching. But it looks like there aren’t any vaccines available, as Baauer‘s girating dance tune is again at the top of’s Hot 100 chart for the fifthe week in a row (darn you, YouTube!). 

Just behind “Harlem Shake,” Macklemore‘s “Thrift Shop” is holding onto No. 2 and Bruno Mars “When I Was Your Man” onto No. 3.
