As previously reported, the Billboard Hot 100’s splashiest headline this week comes courtesy of Tony Bennett, who becomes the oldest living artist ever to appear on the tally. His duet with Amy Winehouse, “Body and Soul,” enters the chart at No. 88, lifting the 85-year-old past then-84-year-old George Burns (in 1980) for the esteemed honor.
Still, other news infuses this week’s chart.
Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger,” featuring Christina Aguilera, spends a third week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, roaring to the No. 1 spot on Radio Songs and holding atop Digital Songs.
“Jagger” blasts 5-1 on Radio Songs with a 14% gain to 123 million all-format audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS. The song marks Maroon 5’s first No. 1 on the chart, passing the twin No. 5 peaks of “This Love” and “She Will Be Loved” in 2004. Aguilera celebrates her third time singing on the country’s most-heard song: her debut pop smash “Genie in a Bottle” reigned for three weeks in 1999 and “Lady Marmalade,” with Lil’ Kim, Mya and P!nk, led for six frames in 2001.
The 5-1 vault of “Jagger” on Radio Songs is the greatest since Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” bounded 6-1 on the Nov. 28, 2009, chart.
“Jagger” leads Digital Songs for a fourth frame with 221,000 downloads sold (up 1%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.
