The last time Pharrell Williams featured on a Top 10 single in the US was in 2006, when Ludacris‘ “Money Maker” hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100. And the last time Daft Punk landed in the Top 10? Well, sorry to slam the wrecking ball into your LED-lit pyramids, but that never really happened…until this week. Buoyed no doubt by the anticipation for this past Tuesday’s (May 21) release of the duo’s fourth album Random Access Memories, the Pharrell-featuring “Get Lucky” inched its way up to #10 on the Hot 100, thus making Daft Punk’s first Top 40 hit on these shores also their first Top 10.

All of this is to say that when it comes time for the Internet to begin carting out the inevitable Song of Summer lists shortly, the Robots will no doubt be dancing among the contenders.

Chart nerds may recall that the highest Daft Punk ever previously reached on their own, single-wise, was #61 (what?), a position both “Around The World” and “One More Time” peaked at. Good one, America.

But, yeah, “Money Maker” — let’s revisit that one, shall we?
