John Legend’s “All Of Me,” Not Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” Unseats “Happy” On The Hot 100

“Happy” days are over, as Pharrell Williams‘ 10-week reign atop the Billboard Hot 100 finally comes to an end. But surprisingly, it’s not Ariana Grande‘s completely inescapable, thoroughly sax-filled “Problem” that takes its place, despite said single posting the eighth-largest debut ever for a download (buyers clicked for 438,000 purchases of the song in its first week). Grande instead debuts at #3, while John Legend‘s piano ballad “All Of Me” leaves the runner-up position and replaces “Happy” at the top. “All Of Me” has been on the Hot 100 for a grand total of 30 weeks now.

Meanwhile, the Michael Jackson‘s unearthed feel-good jam “Love Never Felt So Good,” now repurposed as a Justin Timberlake duet, debuts at #20 after selling 80,000 downloads in just the three days it was on sale before chart cut-off time. (The song was made available for purchase at midnight last Thursday.)

Over on the Billboard 200 album chart, the Frozen soundtrack is in its 133rd week at the top. Oops, added an extra “3” there…not that anyone would know at this point.
