Jay Z and Justin Timberlake’s ‘Holy Grail’ Leaps on Hot 100

Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake have been creating magic on stage for weeks via their anticipated and celebrated tour. Now, their collaboration, "Holy Grail," is climbing the coveted Billboard Hot 100.

Leaping 7-5 this week, after holding two weeks at no.8, the song is on an upward path, closing in on the top spot, which is currently occupied by Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."

"The track's trajectory (8-8-7-5) is a true rarity. Top 10-debuting Hot 100 songs normally drop in subsequent weeks, often rebounding once airplay kicks in and sales normalize after a first-week splash, followed by a second-week decline. The last top 10 debut (excluding No. 1s) to hold or gain in rank in the three weeks following its entry was Maroon 5's "Payphone," featuring Wiz Khalifa, in May 2012 (3-3-3-2)," reports Billboard.

In related news, Justin Timberlake is still on track to release a follow up to "The 20/20 Experience" this Fall. His release will be in good company with new albums from John Legend, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga.
