Listen to the latest episode of's weekly charts breakdown.

Welcome to the latest episode of the Pop Shop Podcast, Billboard's weekly half-hour audio breakdown of the Billboard charts, hottest music news and year's biggest musical events. Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear associate editor Jason Lipshutz and Billboard associate director of charts Keith Caulfield every Thursday on the free Pop Shop Podcast, which can be streamed on or downloaded in iTunes.

On this week’s extra-long episode, Jason and Keith are joined by special co-host Darren Criss, who sits in for an hour of music talk after answering a few questions about the final season of Glee. Darren talks about the process of saying goodbye to the show, where he hopes Kurt and Blaine end up by the finale, and whether or not he has a few songs that he hopes to sing during the final stretch. The guys also talk to Darren about all the regular chart action, with the guest co-host sounding off on Meghan Trainor’s six-week run atop the Hot 100, Taylor Swift’s new song “Out Of The Woods,” the rise of Tove Lo and Bobby Shmurda, Nick Jonas’ surging hit “Jealous” and an unforgettable week for Hozier.

Also on this week’s Pop Shop Podcast, the guys welcome special guest Jimmy Fallon, who debuts in the Top 40 of this week’s Hot 100 chart with his viral hit “Ew!”. At the 39:00 minute mark in the podcast, you’ll hear Keith become the first one to tell Jimmy Fallon where “Ew!” debuted on the Hot 100 chart during a phone conversation, and the Tonight Show host’s elated reaction is something you don’t want to miss.
