Top 40 Pop Songs Chart -- March 2013


Bruno Mars swapped spots with Swedish House Mafia to take over the #1 spot on this month's top 40. 'Don't You Worry Child' had been #1 for two straight months. Mars' latest hit 'When I Was Your Man' narrowly beat out Ke$ha who finishes in the #2 spot for the second straight month with 'C'mon.' The rest of the top five for March remained the same.

February had 11 debuts, but March has provided an even bigger shift, with 16 songs premiering on the countdown. Emeli Sande had this month's biggest debut, premiering at #18 with 'Next to Me.' Meanwhile, rock music continues to be heavily represented. Mumford & Sons returned to the countdown for the first time since 2010 with their cross-over hit 'I Will Wait.' Additionally, Muse makes its second appearance ever on the Top 40 with 'Madness.' They previously reached the countdown in 2009 with 'Uprising.'

Alicia Keys was on fire this month, jumping up the farthest in March from #34 to #21. No song is hotter on the Internet right now than 'Harlem Shake' which premiered this month at #36. Expect the Baauer hit to make a huge jump next month, as it continues to make its way around YouTube with countless amounts of parodies.
