One Republic

Interscope Geffen A&M is out of the gate on-fire! With six of the Top 7 songs at Top 40 Mainstream, IGA collects its 3rd consecutive #1 in just six weeks as One Republic "Counting Stars" reaches the top spot this week. One Republic, Imagine Dragons' "Demons" and Eminem f/Rihanna with "The Monster" are the fastest back-to-back #1s in a chart year. According to Mediabase, three successive #1s by one record label is a new chart record, and one record label capturing 6 out of the Top 7 songs on the chart is also a new record (breaking Interscope's previous record of 6 songs in the Top 10 last year). The 6 songs are: #1 - One Republic "Counting Stars;" #2 - Eminem f/Rihanna "The Monster;" #4 - Imagine Dragons "Demons;" #5 - Ellie Goulding "Burn;" #6 - Zedd f/Haley Williams "Stay The Night," and #7 - Lady Gaga f/R Kelly "Do What U Want."

Congrats to Brenda Romano, Chris Lopes, Mark Neiter, Don Coddington and the entire IGA staff for kicking off 2014 on top of the charts!
