Let's see, charts, that's where stuff that is popular is designated popular, and you observe this and get all excited or all depressed because... (some reason or other)...

Dr. DreCollapse )

Chris BrownCollapse )

Top 95 Singles, 2010

Presumably if somehow Ke$ha and I are talking at a party, she realizes that I don't come without chitchat, so the admonition "Don't be a little bitch with your chitchat" isn't in play. Or if it's in play, it's in play as an energy force, without regard to the particular meanings of the particular words. She's got a gale force to match my own gale, and her wind seems ultimately benign, even if I'm not her type. And yeah, some people'll die brushing their teeth with jack – Ke$ha maybe being the gateway that lets them latch onto the dissolution-as-heroism thing in order to rationalize their own turning of the lights out. And other people will be saved, her body and tattered demeanor and raggy voice validating their own bodies and ragged looks and blistered throats. It's not necessary or possible to count up the bodies and see if it "evens out" – they're all part of a gestalt, air currents and countercurrents. And if you want a different party, you better make your party a better party.

I don't think you get her full-force without Benny Blanco. I imagine him in conversation with Luke and the others, or just leading by example, showing that you don't get force from volume, you get it from propulsion. Benny, the man who saved Luke. Superball beats, a coiled spring let loose that carries all the other sounds with it, in Ke$ha's case unexpected prettiness; bright tunes in a tumultuous night.

1. Ke$ha ft. 3OH!3 "Blah Blah Blah"
2. Selena Gomez & the Scene "Naturally"

I suppose that Drake is now helping to sell Wayne rather than vice versa.

Week of weirdly detached new tracks - weird detachment from your reviewer, at least. Taio Cruz gets to be hot top pop mess of the week, I guess.

Rihanna finally returns to #1, her old accustomed spot two years ago, "Need You Now" having to settle for #2 again. As for new music, I'm kind of... um... well... yes, um. This is about as "um" a week as there's ever been.

You just a earthling, you ain't ever been to Wayne's world

When he slouches his way onstage, it really does become his world.

The Taylor Swift album finally falls from number one to number two. The Bird And The Bee enter at 78. Meanwhile, on the singles chart, something happens, somewhere, probably. Possibly.

Britney jumps to number one, Carrie and Abel make the long trek to the Top 40, and Akon and Weezy finally have a week where no one invites them in as guests, so they invite each other.

The Top Five is all T.I. and M.I.A., in a glorious feat of initials. Well, not quite: Pink is 1 and Rihanna is 3. But T.I. is 2, M.I.A. is 4, and there they are together holding hands and smashing feats at number 5. And five new tunes tick for the full circuit, Jazmine finally pushing through to the Top 40 from her base in the urban leagues.

Taylor SwiftCollapse )

T.I. still number one, and girlboymusic will be vindicated to read that the song still hasn't registered in my memory despite my writing it up last week*; M.I.A. still at number five, still hasn't lost her bullet or her bang bang bang bang; only two new tracks in the Top 40; and Jennifer Hudson and Jazmine Sullivan still under the border, not able to break in, which will drive Lex nuts in frustration.

*Two weeks ago, actually. How time flies when nothing's happening.

Decided to start aping the poptimists ' Year In Pop thing by bringing it to America, to keep myself aware, maybe to stimulate my imagination. This is something that skillextric 'd probably do much better, so if he and you would care to jump in and comment, that would make me happy.

The way it works is anything new to the Billboard Top 40, I write up and rate. TICK equals good, NONTICK equals not so good.

Lil Wayne f. T-PainCollapse )

Sex is boring (Kardinal Offishall)Collapse )

[The date is yesterday's 'cause Billboard posts its chart on Thursdays.]
