Ultimate Roundup: A legend passes on, “break a leg” is literally working, Justin Timberlake does “The Carlton,” and more…

Top Artists

The passing of legendary Mexican singer-songwriter Joan Sebastian has generated a huge amount of posthumous activity as fans react, sending him to #6

This is higher than B.B. King’s spike to #23 this past May

A whopping 22 of his songs have leaped into the Top 500

5 Seconds of Summer return all the way up at #12 with the release of their new single She’s Kinda Hot

Foo Fighters just can’t stop being awesome and getting attention for it (now including bringing out the doctor that fixed up Dave Grohl’s leg to play a song with them on stage), so they move up 29 spots to #66 without any new material [Pitchfork]

Justin Timberlake does “The Carlton” dance with Alfonso Ribeiro & Jerry Rice for re-entry at #83 [BGR]

Calvin Harris boomerangs to #87 on the release of How Deep is Your Love (ft. Disciples)

Lana Del Rey doesn’t stay away for long, grabbing #92 as Honeymoon is released

This week’s album release spikes:

Future (Dirty Sprite 2) – #5

Tame Impala (Currents) – #45 – Giving “world tour” some true meaning as they jump from Australia to the U.S. to Europe and back to the U.S. in just a couple of months [Tickets]

Alan Jackson (Angels and Alcohol) – #53

Jason Isbell (Something More Than Free) – #60 – Currently on U.S. tour [Tickets]

Owl City (Mobile Orchestra) – #98 – Currently on U.S. tour [Tickets]

As mentioned above 5 Seconds of Summer’s She’s Kinda Hot holds the…wait for it…#5 spot
