Clap along. Pharrell's "Happy" just earned its tenth week atop the coveted Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The infectious tune holds its grip atop the chart, making it the number one charting single in the country, thanks to continued play and sales.

According to Billboard, "Happy" is also no.1 on the Digital Songs chart with 208,000 downloads, which made a heavy contribution to the song's hold on the Hot 100.

Plus, John Legend's "All of Me" ascends to No. 1 on Radio Songs and rap rookie Iggy Azalea sends her first Hot 100 chart entry, "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, into the top 10," reports Billboard.

"Happy" also had 8.4 million U.S. streams according to Nielsen BDS. It also holds an eighth week at no.1 on the Radio Songs chart and a twelfth week at no.1 on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart.
