Billboard Hot 100, 6/27/2009

1. Boom Boom Pow - Black Eyed Peas
2. I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas

Wow wow wow (or pow rather). I felt sure last week would be Black Eyed Peas' last at #1, with three other singles bulleted in spots #2 through #4. I couldn't be more wrong, as BEP regains its bullet to spend an 11th week at #1 with "Boom Boom Pow," and in fact scores the amazing feat of occupying the chart's top two spots as "I Gotta Feeling," the band's new single, makes its Hot 100 bow at #2. It's the highest debut of the year and the fifth single to debut within the top 10.

3. Knock You Down - Keri Hilson Featuring Kanye West & Ne-Yo

The single I thought would be #1 this week treads water at #3, although still with a bullet, so #1 is still a possibility.

5. Lovegame - Lady GaGa

Ms. GaGa scores her third straight top 5 hit as Lovegame climbs another notch to #5.

18. You Belong With Me - Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift makes a 14-spot jump to #18, biggest within the top 40 this week. This song was released as one of the promotional tracks just before Fearless's release. At that time, it debuted at #12.

20. Please Don't Leave Me - Pink

Pink scores her 13th top 20 hit as "Please Don't Leave Me" rises one place to #20.

Well, looks like we were BOTH wrong about the next #1 song.

Were you hoping for Pitbull? I was surprised it fell. It could recover though.

John said...

Yeah...after it made a charge at the top last week. Airplay is slowing a bit, so who knows if it still has a shot.

I was hoping Gaga would take her disco stick and stick it up the BBP.. I gotta feeling ain't that bad tho, for now.. LOL

i am not really enjoying the us top five, although i've been known to dance a bit robotically (ie like a loon on loon tablets) to boom boom pow.

I still think Knock You Down will be the next #1. I Got a Feeling is going to fall off, but could climb back up once airplay catches up. I'm ready for something other than Black Eyed Peas at #1.
