It's A Quick Turkey Day Chart Roundup

Another pop-filled Top 10—well, it could be considered pop-filled for this decade, at least. The two most notable jumps come from Lady Gaga, up from #11 to #2 with "Bad Romance," and David Guetta and Akon, who move from #12 to #7 with "Sexy Chick" (the classier version of "Sexy Bitch").

Gaga's fifth Top 10 hit now becomes her highest charting single since "Poker Face" went to #1 earlier this year. Annoyingly, David Guetta's "When Love Takes Over"—a far better single than "Sexy Chick"—only got to #76 here, though, admittedly, the latter is kind of a jam in its own right.

Kelly Clarkson's "Already Gone" does the stripper-lunge up from #20 to #16, bumping Rihanna's dirge-y "Russian Roulette" down to #19.

OTHER TRASH: Leona Lewis ekes out her third U.S. Top 40 hit with "Happy," which jumps to #31 after a heavy week of promotional appearances from the singer here in the States. Also, Alica Keys' synth-filled '80s-esque ballad "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart" debuts at #58, while Rihanna's "Hard" enters at the soaring heights of #80.


The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Empire State Of Mind" - Jay-Z feat. Alica Keys *2 weeks*
2. "Bad Romance" - Lady Gaga
3. "Fireflies" - Owl City
4. "Whatcha Say" - Jason DeRulo

    When Love Takes Over is totally a better jam but Sexy Bitch is way more addictive in a bad bad way. LOL.
    Yay for Gaga.
    Happy Thanksgiving :D

    This is actually a pretty hot top 10 - for a change! Soon you'll be able to stop pretending to be Canadians while abroad!

    I bit odd that the US top ten is actually exciting and the UK charts are clogged up with US RnB and their own homegrown urban gunk.

    Don't spend all your money on those impulse cd buys at Target-Even if they are offering Taylor Swift platinum for $5.

    PS - will "3" peak at 3 anywhere in the world?!
