US Chart Roundup: Ke$ha's String Of Top 10 Singles Continues With "Die Young"

Last week's trio of debuts within the Top 10 scatter down the Hot 100 and make way for Taylor Swift's promo single "I Knew You Were Trouble" (#5), Ke$ha's "Die Young" (#8) and Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Good Time," which climbs back up to #10 after previously peaking at #8. All of Ke$ha's seven singles as a lead artist have now placed in the Top 10. And that's why she's the New Queen Of Soul.

Meanwhile, this activity has Adele's "Skyfall" dropping from #8 to #13 and One Direction's "Live While We're Young" falling from #3 to #21. Last week's other new entry in the Top 10, Taylor Swift's "Red," plummets from #6 to #54.

Elsewhere, Rihanna's "Diamonds" jumps seven positions to a new peak of #11, while Ellie Goulding's lead Halcyon single "Anything Could Happen" debuts at #75.

Over on the Top 200 album chart, Halcyon makes an entry at #9.

The U.S. Top 10:

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

    I like Maroon 5 but "One More Night" isn't a particularly great song. I mean it's all right but it ain't all that - certainly not worthy of being #1 for 5 weeks. But then again, this is the billboard hot 100. It's been over a decade since this chart was a reflection of quality. I'd rather have Maroon 5 at #1 than some of the other garbage that has become fairly standard fare on the billboard hot 100.

    I have to KIND of agree with you. I feel like "One More Night" is one of the lesser songs they've released, and I never would have pegged it having a stronger chart life than "Payphone."
