The Billboard Beats: Macklemore and Bruno Mars Still on Top


My, how things have changed since we last checked the Billboard Beats Hot 100. Big waves over in the music industry. Maybe not in the first slot, which still features Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop.” Nor the second, which has a stronghold on Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven.” Or even the next five positions. But down at No. 7, we’re really shaking things up: Maroon 5’s “Daylight” has edged up from spot 10, edging “Beauty and a Beat” by Justin Bieber out of its longtime residence.

Returning to the list is Justin Timberlake’s new song “Suit & Tie,” perhaps in the wake of his Grammys performance of the number. Bruno Mars actually breaches the list twice, with his song “When I Was Your Man” up to No. 9 from the previous week’s 22.

Check out the other songs that made it to the Top 10 this week.
