US Chart Roundup: Ke$ha Is A Legend

This week The Voice (aka Ke$ha) climbs to #7 with "Blow," a song that, as pointed out before, took six people to write and four to produce. Yes, it's that intricate. This now gives K-dolla her sixth Top 10 hit in a row (not counting that "My First Kiss" trash she did with 3OH!3).

But lest you think that's Ke$ha's only triumph on the chart this week, think again! Yes, the Classy Empress Of Pop also had the honor of co-writing Britney Spears' second Femme Fatale single "Till The World Ends," which debuts at #20 on the strength of 117,000 paid downloads over three days (and becomes her 15th Top 20 hit). Meanwhile, Weaveney's "Hold It Against Me" is still hanging in their at #16 in its eighth week. Those two songs were my jams when I was back in Pennsylvania last week.

Elsewhere, Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" falls from its peak position (so far) of #13 to #18, while her sophomore LP 21 is #1 for a second week on the Top 200 album chart.

And waaaaay down at #99 comes the debut of Willow Smith's "21st Century Girl." Cute video, but I'm having a hard time believing radio is going to warm to this song.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Born This Way" - Lady Gaga *4 weeks*
2. "Fuck You" - Cee Lo Green
3. "S&M" - Rihanna
4. "Fuckin' Perfect" - Pink
5. "On The Floor" - Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull
6. "Grenade" - Bruno Mars
7. "Blow" - Ke$ha
8. "E.T." - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West
9. "Tonight (I'm Fuckin' You)" - Enrique Iglesias ft. Ludacris & DJ Frank E
10. ""Firework" - Katy Perry

    Not really loving the new Britney Spears' single and Ke$ha's latest is appropriately title "blow" because it does.

    No D'luv for Katy Perry? She has another top ten hit with "ET". I hate that she has let Kanye jizz all over the single but then its not that great. Should have went with "last friday night".

    Get feeling better!

    This is the best post you've ever written.

    Because Ke$ha is the most defining force in popular music since... La Toya in the 80s.

    Yes, her shit is that amazing.

    I'm having a hard time seeing why a simple song like blow needs so much writing and producing force...but I like it anyway
