Beyonce and Pharrell have every reason to fall ‘Drunk in Love’ and ‘Happy’ as both of their respective singles crack Billboard’s Hot 100 this week.

Following her steamy performance with Jay Z at the Grammy Awards (Jan. 26), Billboard reports that Beyonce’s ‘Drunk in Love,’ from her self-titled LP, jumped from No. 13 to No. 2, going neck-to-neck with Katy Perry and Juicy J’s ‘Dark Horse,’ which sits at No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Scoring her 15th top 10 hit since ‘Telephone’ with Lady Gaga, the Timbaland-produced banger is Beyonce’s first top 10 hit in four years since ‘Sweet Dreams’ peaked at No. 10 in November 2009.

Garnering 15 top 10 singles, Beyonce ties with Connie Francis and Olivia Newton-John for seventh-place among women with the most top 10s in Billboard’s Hot 100’s 55-year history.

The history doesn’t stop there. Beyonce and Jay Z share another title as ‘Drunk in Love’ becomes the couple’s fourth shared Hot 100 top 10 — the third with Beyonce as the lead artist. Their first top 10 hit as a couple, Jay Z’s ”03 Bonnie & Clyde’ reached No. 4 in December 2002. The songstress then took the lead with ‘Crazy in Love,’ spending eight weeks at No. 1 in 2003. ‘Déjà Vu’ followed, peaking at No. 4 in 2006.

Though Pharrell didn’t do the ‘Happy’ dance at the Grammys, his Academy Award-nominated song moves up three spots last week from 11-8. Pharrell’s ‘Despicable Me 2′ track becomes his second song to hit the top 10 since his 2003’s Jay Z-assisted single ‘Frontin.’
