Pitbull and Ke$ha have officially knocked Eminem and Rihanna from the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The duo’s dance hit “Timber” tops the chart this week, followed by OneRepublic’s “Counting Stars.”
Following a three week run, Eminem and Rihanna’s single “The Monster” is no. 3 on the chart. Lorde’s “Royals” and A Great Big World’s “Say Something” rounds out the top five at no. 4 & 5, respectively.
I’ll admit I love “Timber” way more than “The Monster.” Ironically, Rihanna was initially supposed to sing the hook on “Timber,” but she was too busy collaborating with Shakira. Idolator posted songwriter Bebe Rexha’s demo for “The Monster” earlier this week and just like with Skylar Grey’s demo of “Love the Way You Lie,” it is so much better than the official collaboration.
