Billboard Beats: The ‘Harlem Shake’ Fad Is Finally Over (Please?)


All good things must come to an end. Well, I may have to rephrase that: All fads that were semi-tolerable at one point in time must come to an end. That’s exactly what’s happening to Baauer‘s “Harlem Shake.” It seems like people are finally getting over the now-annoying tune, and that opinion is clearly reflected in this week’s Hot 100 Chart. Knocked out of the No. 1 spot by Macklemore last week, “Harlem Shake” found itself in No. 2. And now this week, the neary-wordless song dropped another two spots, landing at No. 4.

While Baauer’s single is on its way out the door, a new twosome — Ariana Grande and Mac Miller — is on their way in. Grande and Miller’s single, “The Way,” debuted at No. 10 its first week on the charts! Play the duo’s video below and you’ll understand why it’s so hot. If our ears don’t decieve us, it sounds like 2013’s version of J.Lo and Fat Joe‘s 1999 song, “Feelin So Good.” Gosh, I miss the late ’90s!
