US Chart Roundup: Pink's New Single Blows, But Appears To Be A Hit

"Call Me Maybe," the eighth single to top the Billboard Hot 100 in 2012, is still on top (for a fifth week). Carly Rae Jepsen is now one week shy of tying fun.'s "We Are Young" for having the second-longest run at #1 this year — Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" being in first place, with eight weeks.

A bit further down the chart, Owl City and Carly Rae's "Good Time" moves up one position to #17, while Pink's "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" debuts at #58. Both singles have been getting decent airplay over the past week, and Pink jumped up to #2 on iTunes this week (behind Katy Perry's "Wide Awake"). "Good Time" is #8 on iTunes. But I'm still not digging the Pink song. I'm sure hearing it repeatedly over the next three months will eventually wear me down.

Meanwhile, with their latest US single, The Wanted appear to be on the Ellie Goulding "Lights" trajectory of taking three thousand weeks to climb the Hot 100, as "Chasing The Sun" inches up from #72 to #70.

1. "Call Me Maybe" - Carly Rae Jepsen *5 weeks*
2. "Payphone" - Maroon 5 feat. Wiz Khalifa
3. "Somebody That I Used To Know" - Gotye feat. Kimbra
