Lots of movement on this week's chart. First of all, the big leaps were accomplished by Train and Lady GaGa.
"Hey Soul Sister", a single by Train that has been lingering around since last year, debut on the top 20 at #18 last week. It leaps to #7 this week. Ditto for "Telephone" by Lady GaGa with Beyonce. That track goes from #19 to #8 this week, an eleven point leap. Can anyone say number one record? Problem is, which one, if any?
Lady Antebellum holds on to the #1 spot with "Need You Now" for the 5th week. The single is now the title track to their brand new album. Great country stuff with lots of pop crossover potential.
Also new to the top 10 is "Breakeven" by The Script, climbing 2 to #9 this week. Also climbing 2 points is Rihanna's "Hard" up from #12 to #10.
Up in the top 5 land, Lady GaGa moves up a point from #4 to #3 with "Bad Romance". This is a former #1 record that also stayed at the top spot for 5 weeks. Rebound anyone?
Be sure to check out our featured video, "Hey Soul Sister" by Train.
