“Uptown Funk” has finally been dethroned.
It took 14 weeks, but Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ infectious hit has slid down the charts in favor of Wiz Khalifa’s Furious 7 contribution and Paul Walker tribute. Not that “Uptown Funk” is a bad choice, I actually like the song like the masses, but that 14 week reign is pretty impressive (and good for the 2nd longest run in Hot 100 chart history.)
I’m just happy that it was overtaken by the touching “See You Again” that I have grown a fan of since seeing it as the fitting background in Paul Walker’s tribute at the end of the film. The music video does the franchise justice as well, so ICYMI, watch the video to the new #1 song in the country below (AND, UPDATE: His performance of the song on Ellen.)
