US Chart Roundup: Ke$ha Keeps Killing It

Ke$ha's "Timber" is top dog on the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week, and given that she's one of 11 writers credited on the track, I'm going to think positively and assume that her toilet paper and her toothpaste are now totally covered by royalties while she's in rehab. Complete win!

Ke$ha was at #1 this very week four years ago with "Tik Tok," the lead single off her debut album Animal. And if we also throw in 2010 single "We R Who We R" and her feature on Flo Rida's 2009 hit "Right Round," the New Queen Of Soul has spent a total of 18 weeks on top of the Hot 100 throughout her storied career.

I'm so glad this ho is back in top form and yelling "timber!" all the way to deposit her $14 check at the bank! VIVA LA GLAMOUR!

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Timber" - Pitbull feat. Ke$ha *2 weeks*
2. "Counting Stars" - OneRepublic
3. "The Monster" - Eminem feat. Rihanna
4. "Dark Horse" - Katy Perry feat. Juicy J
5. "Say Something" - A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera
6. "Let Her Go" - Passenger
7. "Royals" - Lorde
8. "Wake Me Up!" - Avicii
9. "Demons" - Imagine Dragons
10. "Story Of My Life" - One Direction
