Billboard Hot 100, 3/21/2009

Kind of a boring chart this week, as pointed out by J. Mensah. Here are the few highlights:

1. Right Round - Flo Rida Featuring Ke&ha
3. Poker Face - Lady GaGa

"Right Round" conquers America for a fourth week, leading a top 5 that is exactly the same as last week. "Poker Face" gets the airplay gainer, but doesn't budge. Still, I'm not writing this off yet as a potential #1, as its sales are still strong too.

6. The Climb - Miley Cyrus

The most notable news of the week is Miley Cyrus's #6 debut with "The Climb," the single from her forthcoming Hanna Montana movie. With airplay building steadying, the withholding of the single until last week paid off big on the chart, making "The Climb" Cyrus's highest-charting single, surpassing the #9 peak of "7 Things" and #10 hit "See You Again."

10. Blame It - Jamie Foxx featuring T-Pain

Jamie Foxx scores his fourth top 10 hit as "Blame It" climbs two spots to #10. It's T-Pain's 12th appearance in the top 10. I just listened to this for the first time and I wasn't impressed. It's about hooking up with a drunk woman.

17. I Love College - Asher Roth

Asher Roth's "I Love College" rises five spots to #17 and is this week's Sales Gainer. With Spring Break immiment, expect a top 10 placing soon.

37. Halo - Beyonce

Beyonce land's her 16th top 40 hit with "Halo," the fourth single from I Am...Sasha Fierce, following the relatively unsuccessful "Diva," which peaked at #19 and this week drops 2 more places to #23. "Halo" is looking good at top 40 radio, so I think this may eventually reach the top 10.

Yes! It's nice to see you giving "Halo" some ink. (Or cyber ink, as it were.) I can't get enough of that song. When is it going to make it to your chart?

It's in my top 20 now.
