We got a new song at #1. Caro Emerald moves up a point from last week's #2 position to take #1 with her latest single "Tangled Up". It is a song that so far, is gettng zero airplay here in the U.S. but is somewhat of a hit in the U.K. and parts of Europe. Ms. Emerald is from the Netherlands and has been a popular singer in Europe since at least 2009. She had a huge #1 hit on this chart back in 2010 when her first single, "Back It Up" held the #1 position for 3 weeks. She has since charted a few more times here with "A Night Like This" and "Stuck".

Bruno Mars, who recently topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, slips a point from last week's #1 record to #2 with "When I Was Your Man". It was Mars' 4th #1 hit on the Weekly Top 20 since his debut back in late 2010. Is Bruno Mars the next Michael Jackson? Time will tell.

The rest of the top 20 more or less maintains the status quo of last week with not too many songs moving up or down. Many songs have maintained the positions they were in last week. The only exception is Pink's latest single "Just Give Me a Reason" which breaks into the top 10 at #8 after moving up from #13 last week. This is the track that also feature's Fun's Nate Ruess.

Speaking of Fun, the band debuts with the week's only new record at #20. Their latest single "Why Am I The One" is the lone new entry to the chart this week. Good song and the 4th track to be released from Fun's albumSome Nights.
