Katy Perry consolidates her lead at the top with "Dark Horse."  A music video is in the works, and that would likely give the song an even stronger lead on the chart.  With the full impact of the Grammy Awards felt, Beyonce leaps to #2 with her show opener "Drunk In Love."  Despite the fact that "XO" was receiving the primary push at pop radio, "Drunk In Love" has become the clear fan favorite.  Jason Derulo rises up to #4 this week with "Talk Dirty."  It is his highest charting hit since he with clear to #1 with his debut single "Whatcha Say."  Pharrell Williams continues his hot streak with Academy Award nominated "Happy" rising into the top 10 this week.  It is only his second solo hit to reach the top 10 and the first to do so in a decade.  Now it looks like Imagine Dragons will indeed break the record for the most weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 in a single chart run.  The old record was 76 weeks by Jason Mraz' "I'm Yours," but now Imagine Dragons leap back up to #13 in their 75th week on the chart with "Radioactive."
