Madonna Scores 38th Top 10, Whitney Houston Re-enters Billboard Hot 100

The Queen Of Pop Remains The Queen Of Pop,The Voice Remains The Voice.

The Queen of everything aka Madonna just scored her record-extending 38th top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, as ‘Gimme All Your Luvin’ featuring M.I.A and Nicki Minaj soars in at # 10, after a full week of digital sales after Madonna’s Superbowl performance. Although the song loses out on radio as it plummets down from # 28 to # 59 on the Radio Songs chart, so in all probability expect the song to tumble down the charts next week. Either way, the Queen just got herself another top 10 hit 30 years after she started her ground-breaking career. Your faves could and will NEVER. Enough said #Sit And Deal

The tragic passing of Whitney Houston spurred an unprecedented increase of sales of her singles, as the classic ¬†‘I Will Always Love You‘ sold a whopping 195,000 digital units to re-enter the Billboard Hot 100 at # 7, along with a resurgence of airplay.

Usually recurrent or catalog songs are not allowed to chart on the Hot 100, but according to Billboard director of charts Silvio Pietroluongo,

“Going forward we feel that it is the proper move to allow older titles posting enough activity to return to the Hot 100 if ranking in the chart’s upper half.”

Whitney’s ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ and ‘Greatest Love Of All’ enter the charts at # 35 and # 41 respectively.
