US Chart Roundup: Christina Aguilera's "Your Body" Belly-Flops

PSY's "Gangnam Style" may have conquered the UK chart this week, but it's unable to unseat Maroon 5's "One More Night" on the Billboard Hot 100. And even though the South Korean stud promised to perform the song shirtless if he got to #1 here, he's doing it today anyway via some Ustream trash concert. Get ready for sexy.

Three broads crash the Top 20 this week with new songs: Taylor Swift debuts at #7 with her latest Red offering "Begin Again"; Ke$ha's "Die Young" enters at #13; and Rihanna's new single "Diamonds," from her upcoming 74th studio album, arrives at #16.

Meanwhile, you would have thought that the premiere of Christina Aguilera's "Your Body" video would have helped the single, but it's now dropped from last week's debut position of #34 to #64. Maybe she didn't wear enough rainbow-colored extensions in the slutty trailer park?

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "One More Night" - Maroon 5 *3 weeks*
2. "Gangnam Style" - PSY
3. "Some Nights" - fun.
4. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" - Taylor Swift
5. "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" - Pink
6. "As Long As You Love Me" - Justin Bieber
7. "Begin Again" - Taylor Swift *new*
8. "Whistle" - Flo Rida
9. "Too Close" - Alex Clare
10. "Good Time" - Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen

    It needs to be more uptempo. its meant to be a fast tune, her voice sounds like it has been slowed down. Her management need to cop on here. any other female artists have uptempo tracks.

    Even though it`s flopping I have the feeling the media is not against her like when Bionic was released, so I`m still hopeful Lotus will work a lot better...

    For some reason once again radio stations are not playing her music, Kesha and Rihana released singles around the same time and they play them every hour on the hour, how is your body suppossed to do well when it doesnt even get a chance to be heard??? Its obvious that they decided whats gonna be a hit and whats not, Im done listening to the same crappy songs over and over...
