Nas Debuts At # 1, Carly Rae Jepsen Dominates Billboard Charts For A 7th Week!

Whoever called back Mizz Carly Rae Jepsen (maybe) must be one helluva lucky bloke, and I’m a little jealous to be honest. Lest you didn’t know (cause you’re probably a stone), ‘Call Me Maybe‘ has been SLAYING the Billboard Hot 100 by refusing to budge from the # 1 position for a 7th consecutive week, and lets just say we know who pays for dinner when she’s out on a date #ka-ching. This probably might be the last week she spends at the penthouse though, as the track finally shows signs of slowing down on radio as well as digital sales. Chances are that Katy Perry’s ‘Wide Awake‘ or Maroon 5’s ‘Payphone‘ featuring Wiz Khalifa might just push her out from the coveted top spot next week.

The insane new No Doubt track ‘Settle Down‘ makes a splash on the Billboard Hot 100 as it becomes the band’s first single in over 8 years to enter the charts – soaring in at # 34. The last No Doubt song to make it on the Hot 100 was the flawless ‘It’s My Life‘ which was released in 2003, and peaked at # 10, easily becoming one of the biggest hits for the band, spending a whopping 28 weeks on the Hot 100.

Over at the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, life certainly looks good for Hip-Hop royalty Nas as he nets his 6th Billboard chart topping album. ‘Life Is Good‘ starts at # 1 with 149,000 copies sold in the US this week, dethroning Zac Brown Band’s ‘Uncaged‘ with slips to # 2 this week with 78,000 units sold.
