US Chart Roundup: Britney Plummets While The Fuck Songs Keep Climbing

Now that the frenzy over Britney Spears' new-ish single "Hold It Against Me" has blown over, the Dr. Luke/Max Martin dance-pop jam winds up being unable to sustain a lengthy stay at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and thus plunges to #6 like a scrawny one-eyed whore who just spotted a nickel on the ground in the alleyway behind Rite-Aid on a Sunday morning. This past weekend "Hold It Against Me" debuted at #6 on the UK chart.

Elsewhere, Enrique Iglesias' sex jam "Tonight (I'm Fuckin' You)" inches up to #4, matching the peak of his 2010 hit "I Like It." And just outside the Top 10, Pink's "Fuckin' Perfect" hops from #30 to #11 thanks to the premiere of the somewhat graphic music video.



I love it when inspirational songs have "fuck" in the title and blood on the wall.

Another chica who takes a tumble on the chart this week is Avril Lavigne, who's "What The Hell" drops from #13 to #31. I don't really know what else to say about that song other than it's paper-thin and simply not that memorable. Like, I never find myself thinking, I really need to hear that song...now!

On a final note, Adele's "Rolling In The Deep"—a #2 single in the UK this week—climbs from #97 to #84.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Grenade" - Bruno Mars *3 weeks*
2. "Firework" - Katy Perry
3. "Black And Yellow" - Wiz Khalifa
4. "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)" - Enrique Iglesias ft. Ludacris & DJ Frank E
5. "What's My Name" - Rihanna feat. Drake
6. "Hold It Against Me" - Britney Spears
7. "We R Who We R" - Ke$ha
8. "Raise Your Glass" - Pink
9. "The Time (Dirty Bit)" - The Black Eyed Peas
10. "Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)" - Pitbull feat. T-Pain

    "and thus plunges to #6 like a scrawny one-eyed whore who just spotted a nickel on the ground in the alleyway behind Rite-Aid on a Sunday morning....." Seriously, do you actually spend time thinking about lines like this or do they just come to you naturally?....cos they're pretty f**kin brilliant (especially when they are used in reference to artists I dislike with a passion!!!).

    Ha! I am laughing so hard at hardcore Britney Fans. This single may not have the legs to actually promote her upcoming album. It peaked and plummeted so far so soon it's actually kind of sad. But, because I really like Britney I hope, for her album's sake, they release the video and a good second single soon.
