U.S. Chart Roundup: Screw Taylor Swift—Ke$ha Has Landed Her Second #1 Hit
"We R Who We R," has debuted at the top of the Hot 100 single chart. I know, I know—I had to ask myself if this was just Jesus in disguise returning to our mortal plane, too.
This gives Ke$ha a second chart-topping hit after "Tik Tok," and it also makes her sixth Top 10 single (I'm including "My First Kiss," her pairing with the new Lennon-McCartney, 3OH!3). And start curling your toes—the Angelic Queen Of Soul's mini album Cannibal is out on November 22. God bless America!
Another poetic masterpiece makes great gains this week, as 10-year-old Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair" jumps from #78 to #11. Elsewhere, Chris Brown's overly-poppy single "Yeah 3X" debuts at #33. (Who let him back into the club?)
Other than that, basically #34 through #100 consists of new tracks from Taylor Swift's Speak Now that lonely teen girls from Kansas who will never get sex are downloading.
So have I mentioned Shayne Ward is on the cover of Gay Times in a wet T-shirt?
