Millions of Slacker music fans determine how these charts are ordered. By measuring how listeners listen to, skip, Heart, and Ban songs on Slacker, we are able to present these charts, which are a true measure of how engaged music fans are, with the songs that they hear. Simply put: here are the songs that you love the most this week across all genres.

On the Overall chart, Robin Thicke narrowly maintains the #1 spot with “Blurred Lines.” He got an extra boost from last week’s feature as Slacker’s “Album Of The Week,” which allowed millions of Slacker listeners to listen to his entire album on-demand. Also on the Overall chart, Zedd’s “Clarity” continues to crossover from the EDM chart in a major way; it’s up 15 spots to break into the top 15.

We see three new songs that Slacker listeners are pushing up the Hip Hop/R&B chart. Wale’s “LoveHate Thing,” Big Sean’s “Beware,” and B.o.B.’s “Headband” all make their debut this week. Imagine Dragons continue to jam up the Alt/Indie chart; 3 of the top 5 songs belong to the band. Panic At The Disco’s “Miss Jackson” and Sick Puppies’ “There’s No Going Back” both make their debut on the chart this week.

Meanwhile, on the EDM chart, we see two massive debuts as Martin Garrix’s “Animals” debuts at #20, and Run DMT’s “Starlight” debuts at #27. At Rock, Three Days Grace’s new single “Misery Loves My Company” makes a huge debut–up 41 spots to land at #9. Papa Roach’s “Leader Of The Broken Hearts” is up 78 spots to break into the top 15.

Over on the Pop chart, One Direction’s “Best Song Ever” makes a huge debut—up 29 spots to land at #39. This huge jump is largely due it’s feature as a Slacker “Song Stuck In My Head” last week. The same goes for Avicii; his “Wake Me Up” debuts at #40. We had initially projected Bruno Mars to overtake Robin Thicke for the #1 spot this week, but Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” has jumped 2 spots to land at #2, very close to unseating “Blurred Lines.”

Finally, on the Country chart, Tim McGraw has the biggest debut of the week; his new single “Southern Girl” is a hit with Slacker music fans, as it jumps 46 spots to land at #27. Lee Brice’s “Parking Lot Party” and Keith Urban’s “Little Bit Of Everything” both jump 8 spots to break into the top 15. A favorite of your Slacker curators, Kacey Musgraves makes her Country chart debut, with “Blowin’ Smoke” landing at #39.

Artist of the Week Robin Thicke

ROBIN THICKE Slacker Radio Robin Thicke announced his return to music last week- by premiering a video for his new single “Blurred Lines” that features he, T.I., and Pharrell Willams dancing with nude models. The video has been banned from YouTube, but only after racking up over 1 million views in less than a week.

If Blurred Lines is any indication, we are in for the smoothest, sexiest Robin Thicke album yet. Cyrano of the The Cataracs produced some of the sessions, and he claims that for this project, they set out to make a “Black Disco” album.
