Pink's "Raise Your Glass" Becomes Her 10th U.S. Top 10 Single

Pink has every right to knock one (or three) back herself this week, as her Greatest Hits...So Far!!! single "Raise Your Glass" climbs up one position to #10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and becomes her 10th American Top 10 hit (not counting that abomination that was "We Are The World 25," which I've stated before makes me want to swallow glass).

"Raise Your Glass" is also her highest-charting U.S. hit since "So What" reached #1 back in September 2008. (Stick with Max Martin, girl!) And I have to say, this jam is a total grower. I wasn't completely smitten with it at first, but hearing it on the radio over the past couple of weeks has proven to be a pleasant surprise each time. Good on ya, Pink. Looking forward to the greatest hits (out November 15) finding a permanent home in my car next month.

Elsewhere, Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP's international dance hit "We No Speak Americano" climbs up to #29, Shakira's "Loca" jumps up 52 spots to #32 (thus giving British rapper Dizzee Rascal his first American hit) and Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" debuts at #78.

On a final note, Natasha Bedingfield goes in at #95 with new single "Strip Me." Jesus. This song, "Babies"—what is it with these repressed religious girls?

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Like A G6" - Far*East Movement *2 weeks*
2. "Just The Way You Are" - Bruno Mars" 
3. "Only Girl (In The World)" - Rihanna
4. "Just A Dream" - Nelly
5. "DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love" - Usher feat. Pitbull
6. "Bottoms Up" - Trey Songz feat. Nicki Minaj
7. "Teenage Dream" - Katy Perry
8. "Dynamite" - Taio Cruz
9. "Club Can't Handle Me" - Flo Rida feat. David Guetta
10. "Raise Your Glass" - Pink

    this cover reminds me of the key art she used more early on in her career (e.g. you make me sick). i wasn't a fan in those days but am now. pink's an amazing performer and she knows how to use her voice to fit the song - she's feeling the emotion when she sings the lyrics - a rare talent among pop "singers" these days.

    Excluding Heidi Montag of course. I really believe her when she coos "come eat...my panties offa me!" in I'll Do It. I believe Heidi would do that - and just about anything else - for attention.

    i am quite happy that she has reached top ten with this. It's so joyous and a fitting song to have on a greatest hits.

    Not getting that Willow Smith song AT ALL...
