Enrique Iglesias' "I Like It" Would Go To #1 If He'd Take His Pants Off

Other than yesterday's news that Kylie Minogue racked up her first U.S. Top 20 album in eight years with Aphrodite, it's a pretty snoozy chart week.

Most noteworthy is Enrique Iglesias, whose "I Like It" climbs to #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. It's only his fourth single to crack the Top 10 in the U.S., and his highest charting song since 2001, when "Hero" reached #3. I just kind of wish he didn't have to sell his soul to Pitbull and Jersey Shore to do it.

All that said, I liked that song about ping pong a lot better. Why couldn't that have become a big hit here? Enrique's album Euphoria debuted at #10 over on the Top 200 this week.

On the lower end, Adam Lambert's "If I Had You" moves up 12 notches to #73. It's been a month since the music video premiered. Here's hoping the single ends up being a slow burner like "Whataya Want From Me," and eventually climbs to a decent position.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "California Gurls" - Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg *6 weeks*
2. "Love The Way You Lie" - Eminem feat. Rihanna
3. "Airplanes" - B.o.B feat. Hayley Williams
4. "OMG" - Usher feat. will.i.am
5. "Billionaire" - Travie McCoy feat. Bruno Mars
6. "Dynamite" - Taio Cruz
7. "Cooler Than Me" - Mike Posner
8. "I Like It" - Enrique Iglesias feat. Pitbull
9. "Find Your Love" - Drake
10. "Ridin' Solo" - Jason Derulo

    Enrique really would sound better without pants...at least he's kind enough to always wear them as tight as possible. I must thank you for drawing my attention to "Do You Know (The Ping Pong Song)" a couple of years ago...that one is still getting some major ipod play on this end (along with "Tired of Being Sorry" from the same album)!

    I think I d/led that Ping Pong song because of you too! Didn't he have a song with Kelis last year or something?

    There can NEVER be enough appreciation for "Do You Know."
