***Digital Singles top 200***
Overall the Top 10 of course remains untouched (Carly Rae Jepsen at the top, everyone else fighting for scraps)

Wiz Khalifa “Work Hard” has staggered a bit since going gold. 53k this week, 783k total. I think its time for a new single.
DJ Khaled/Kanye/Rick Ross “I Wish You Would” debuts strong at #35 with 52k. One thing you cant deny about Khaled, his singles have legs and this should be no different considering the names on it.
