Colbie Caillat holds on to the #1 spot for a second consecutive week with her hit single "Brighter Than The Sun". It's the perfect summery kind of song as the season wanes into fall. Stills makes me feel bright and energetic.
Knocking on the pinnacle's door we find the Foo Fighters coming in there at #2 with "Rope". The single is off their latest album Wasting Light. The album has spawned two singles so far. "Rope" was released early this year but only made the chart about 4 weeks ago. The latest single "Walk" makes its debut at #18 this week. Foo Fighters score a double whammy here. Rock is not dead.
Following the Foo Fighters is Anggun who goes up 2 points from #5 of last week to #3 this week with her worldwide hit "Only Love". Great pop music from Asia... what more?
Breaking into the top 10 for the first time are The Naked and Famous with their single "Young Blood" (up from #11 to #9) and Demi Lovato at #10 with "Skyscraper". The single also moves up 2 points.
The second debut song to the chart this week is "You and I" by Lady Gaga off her latest album, Born This Way. The single checks in at #19.

Colbie Caillat has the new #1 song of the week. It took several weeks for "Brighter Than The Sun" to reach #1. It's the second single off her album All of You. She most recently charted with the first single, "I Do". Both songs are bright and bubbly in the style that Caillat is most familiar with. Makes for great summer pop music.
Bolting into the top 5 this week we find The Foo Fighters moving up 5 points from #9 last week to #4 this week with "Rope". It's kind of a late arrival to this chart after being released earlier this year. The song has a great rock vibe to it and a cool video featuring just the band. Simple and effective.
Following the Foo Fighters this week into the top 5 is Anggun and her hit "Only Love". The song moves from #10 to #5 and is supposedly on an upcoming album to be released later this year. There are 2 versions of this song... one in English and I think the other is in Indonesian.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers finally break into the top 10 this week by moving up one point from #11 to #10 with their latest single "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie". This song came out before the release of their new album I'm With You which came out this past week.
Two songs make their chart debut. "Helena Beat" is the latest from Foster The People, an electronic dance song that follows on the success of their debut single "Pumped Up Kicks", which went to #2 on this chart. "Beat" makes its debut at #18 this week.
The other debut song is by Malaysian singer/songwriter Zee Avi. She's been around since at least 2007. Her first single, "The Book Of Morris Johnson" enters the chart at #19. You can view her video for that record above.
