U.S. Chart Roundup: Britney And Kelly Rowland Soar While Beyonce Flops Hard

Exactly two months after the single first arrived, Britney Spears' "Till The World Ends" gets a major push up the Billboard Hot 100 (to #3) thanks to the new remix featuring Wigney's upcoming tourmate Nicki Minaj and the song's co-writer Ke$ha. The last Britney single to peak at #3 on the chart was "Circus." This now gives her three Top 5 hits in a row, following "Hold It Against Me" and "3."

Don't expect The Wig's latest to stick around too long, though — the novelty of the remix appears to have been fleeting, as it's already dropped to #20 on iTunes. The original version of "Till The World Ends" is at #36 on the digital store's chart.

Likewise, it's odd that Billboard even credits Britney this week on Rihanna's "S&M" (#6), since that remix has plummeted to #152 on iTunes. (RiRi's Loud version is hanging in there at #18).

But let's focus on the two high profile singles that have dropped faster than an 17-year-old hooker's panties at R. Kelly's mansion: Lady Gaga's "Judas" and Beyonce's "Run The World (Girls)." Gaga's latest has steadily tumbled, from #10 to #12 to, now, #20. At least she has this week's appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show and the premiere of the music video tonight to rely on (not to mention upcoming performances on the American Idol and Saturday Night Live finales).

Meanwhile, House Of Dereon's Main Wig has yet to premiere her video for "Run The World." But let's face it — that song sucks dry weave dust, hence its plunge from #33 to #48.

On the flip side, Kelly Rowland, the TRUE talent from Destiny's Child, climbs 11 positions to #43 with "Motivation." Finally, a little justice comes along to put Beyonce in her place.

    wow..besides Adele and Bruno Mars....I can't believe how tragically trashy the billboard top 10 is...actually, on second thoughts, who am I kidding? It has been this trashy for the last 15 years...I should be thankful for Adele's presence in the top 10.

    I wish these bitches would do a better job making videos for their remixes. Even if they just went on set for a day to shoot scenes to splice in with the original video, I don't care. Just something.
