Carly Rae Jepsen’s phenomenally addictive ‘Call Me Maybe‘ (it’s the song I have to listen to on my way to work – everyday) finally dethrones Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know‘ featuring Kimbra after an 8 week domination of the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart! Mizz Jepsen thus becomes the first lead female vocalist to send a début single straight to # 1 since glitter-princess Ke$ha – whose ‘Tik Tok‘ reigned supreme for 9 weeks in 2010. Additionally ‘Call Me Maybe‘ dominates the Digital Songs Chart for yet another week, selling 296,000 downloads this week taking the cumulative sales of the song in the US to over a massive 3.3 million!
Check out all the action within a mostly static top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart this week, with the only new entry within the top 10 being Katy Perry’s ‘Wide Awake‘ – definitely one of the best songs she’s ever released – which moves up to # 9 from # 19 last week – thus becoming her 11th top 10 hit (6 of which have peaked at # 1).
