We got a lot of movement this week. First off, Lady GaGa holds at #1 for a 2nd week with "Telephone" a popular duet she does with Beyonce. Lady GaGa also debuts at #17 with "Alejandro", a track off her latest album The Fame Monster. And her former #1 hit "Bad Romance" has departed this chart after a long chart run that started on November 15, 2009.
The Script has inched their way up the chart one position at the time over several weeks. This week "Breakeven" moves up 1 from #3 to #2. Is the top spot reachable by this group?
Jazzy diva Caro Emerald leaps 7 points this week moving from #11 to #4 with her danceable track, "Back It Up." This song is not listed on any charts that I know of. I think this track and her newer "A Night Like This" single should be getting tons of radio airplay and listings on various charts. Her music is a refreshing break from a sea of sameness.
Colbie Caillat is making a strong chart showing as her latest track "I Never Told You" moves up 2 from #8 to #6. Other movers in an upward stance this week include Carrie Underwood with "Temporary Home" up 1 from #10 to #9; Lady Antebellum moving from #16 to #11 with "American Honey", this while "Need You Now" is still in the top 5 at #3.
A Fine Frenzy gains positions by moving up 3 from #15 to #12 with "Blow Away". Noisettes may have another hit here with "Every Now and Then" moving up 4 from #17 to #13. And Donny Osmond also moves up 4 from #19 to #15 with his cover version of "I Have You To Thank," a track that seems to not be available in the domestic market.
For songs to move up, it is unfortunate that some songs have to also move down. Taking big tumbles this week are Marina & the Diamonds. They held on to the #7 spot for the last 2 weeks with "Hollywood". This week the song takes a 7 point dive moving down to #14. Also falling 7 points is Ringo Starr. His latest track "Walk With You" falls from #9 to #16. And finally Black Eyed Peas are on their way out as "Imma Be" tumbles from #13 to #19. That was a short lived hit in these parts.
