20A Thousand YearsChristina Perri--


Bruno Mars goes to #1 with his latest single "It Will Rain". The song moves up from #2 after spending several weeks there. Following Mars is Adele with her single "Someone Like You" which moves up one point from #3 to #2. Will she make it to #1? Her last single, "Rolling in the Deep" got only as far as #2 on the Weekly Top 20 last year. That song however dominated other charts for most of 2011.

Elsewhere on the chart most songs only got minimal upward movement, or none at all. The song that makes the most significant move up for the week is Toby Keith's novelty country tune, "Red Solo Cup", which in its 3rd week on this chart, bolts from #17 to #11. Top 10 is definite by next week. See the video below. It's funny.

The only debut song this week is by Christina Perri. It's called "A Thousand Years" and makes it at the #20 spot. Ms. Perri has enjoyed much chart success here. Her last charted single, "Jar of Hearts" got as high as #8 in 2010 and the follow-up single "Arms" did not make the top 20 last year.

Matt Cardle's "Run For Your Life" has dropped from #1 to #3. This should have been a bigger hit on other charts and U.S. radio. Unfortunately it has yet to click with U.S. audiences. Looks like the song may be on its way out.
