Top 10 tracks

TOP 10 TRACKS OF THE WEEK: “Gangnam Style” just keeps getting bigger, buoyed by a massive media blitz that has turned PSY into a household name. Rihanna’s “Diamonds” is also coming on strong, though the track sold 53k fewer than the reigning champ last week. Voice contestant Cassadee Pope is a surprising #3 with her live-on-the-air cover of coach Blake Shelton’s poignant ballad, demonstrating the potency of prime-time TV exposure. Not surprisingly, all but one entry on the leaderboard grew during Thanksgiving/Black Friday week, the lone exception being Maroon 5’s “One More Night,” which is just starting to slip after a 23-week run on the sales chart. Same with fun.’s “Some Nights,” which slipped to #11 after 40 weeks.

Two AC/DC classics made the Top 20 following the end of the band’s digital holdout, while a bunch more registered five-figure sales. Guess “Money Talks” after all. (11/29a)
