Billboard Hot 100, 9/25/2010

1. Teenage Dream - Katy Perry

Katy Perry spends a second week at #1 with "Teenage Dream," her 8th week at #1 this year. That puts her in a tie with Eminem for the 3rd most weeks at #1 this year after the 10 weeks for Ke$ha and the 12 weeks for Rihanna. I have a feeling she may extend her lead to 13 weeks next week, with her new single "Only Girl (in the World)" firmly planted at #1 on iTunes and quickly zooming up the airplay chart.

3. Just the Way You Are - Bruno Mars

Challenging Rihanna for #1 next week is Bruno Mars, who climbs a notch to #3 and is this week's airplay gainer. This feels like a #1 hit, but it will have to make its move soon.

9. Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida feat. David Guetta

Flo Rida scores his fifth top 10 hit this week, as "Club Can't Handle Me" climbs 4 notches to #9. It's the first single from his third album, The Only One. The first singles from his other albums, "Low" and "Right Round" were both #1 hits, and "Club Can't Handle Me" has already been #1 in the UK. This is the second top 10 hit for David Guetta, who hit #5 earlier this year with "Sexy Bitch."

Hmm...Not a particularly eventful week. There's nothing else I feel the need to highlight. Next week however should be quite interesting with Rihanna angling for her 8th #1 hit, and Florence and the Machine, hot off their MTV VMA appearance, converting from indie to mainstream with "Dog Days Are Over."

I've got the first few albums on your 100 albums list. Most of them I should've had already but couldn't be bothered to get like James Blunt. And I just got Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga by Spoon a couple minutes ago... the first track is sex!

Don't get James Blunt, or at least don't buy it new. I'm sure every used music store in Britain sells it for a pittance.

On a scale of 1 - 10, how offended would you be if I asked you what you saw in Dannii Minogue's album? *puppy dog eyes*

ww_adh said...

Not offended at all. But I still think it's leaps and bounds better than anything else she did. I still think it's better than her sister's album that came out that same year.

I got Glasvegas this morning--amazing! And a couple others--they're very cheap in Oxford Streets HMV.

Ah...Oxford Street. Lucky you.
