Top 40 Pop Songs Chart -- April 2013

4/1/2013 11:45AM by Sam Wilbur


Bruno Mars is number one no more. 'When I Was Your Man' drops to number two this month, while Demi Lovato hits the top spot with her brand new song 'Heart Attack.' It's Lovato's biggest hit since 'Give Your Heart a Break' and is full of EDM, club-like beats. Rounding out the top three is Olly Murs who has peaked at his highest position with 'Troublemaker.'

After Lovato, Justin Timberlake had the next highest debut, premiering at #4 on the charts with 'Mirrors.' Fresh off the release of his new album 'The 20/20 Experience,' Timberlake is the only artist this month with two songs in the top 40. 'Suit & Tie' came in at number 33. Meanwhile, Macklemore has charted again with his follow-up to 'Thrift Shop.' His new single 'Can't Hold Us' premieres at number 15.

The biggest jump of the month came from Fall Out Boy who moved up 21 spots with their comeback single 'My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up).' P!nk wasn't far behind, jumping 17 spots to the top 5 with 'Just Give Me a Reason,' featuring Nate Reuss of fun.

April also features debuts from Flo Rida and Carly Rae Jepsen, both of whom have had plenty of success in previous countdowns. Stay tuned to AOL Radio to see how far they can climb.
