This is crazy!
So here’s my number, call me maybe? Please? Pweetty pweeeesseee?? Alright whatever you don’t have to be a crazy bitch about it #slutbag. Mizz Carly Rae Jepsen’s definitely having a better time than me giving out her number to random strangers, as ‘Call Me Maybe‘ dominates the Billboard Hot 100 for a 9th consecutive week, thus beating Gotye and Kimbra’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know‘ as the longest running # 1 single of 2012 so far! That’s it – I’m immediately writing a song about stalking someone on Twitter and forcing a follow-back #tweetmemaybe.
Meanwhile the very naked Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used To Know‘ featuring Kimbra achieves a new feat as well – becoming the first song this year to surpass the 6 million mark in digital sales. The song has sold a massive 6.046 million singles in the US alone, making it this year’s biggest selling single so far, followed by Fun. and Janelle Monae’s ‘We Are Young‘ with sales of 5.381 million singles and the irrepressible Mizz Jepsen’s ‘Call Me Maybe‘ with 5.019 million singles.
All hail Mizz Goulding! The impossible might just happen next week y’all! In its 33rd week on the Billboard Hot 100, Ellie Goulding’s ‘Lights‘ surges to a new peak of # 2! This, after 2 whole years since her début album of the same name was released, and she’s just about to release her sophomore album. American Radio – truly an enigma. Thankfully, the song now appears to be the strongest contender to dethrone Carly Rae Jepsen from the penthouse next week, along with the very artful and poignant ‘Whistle‘ by Flo Rida.
Over at the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, Rapper Rick Ross earns his 4th # 1 album as ‘God Forgives, I Don’t‘ debuts at # 1 selling over 218,000 copies this week. Soul chanteuse Joss Stone earns her 4th top 10 album as ‘The Soul Sessions, Vol 2‘ – one of my fave albums this year, debuts at # 10 this week with 24,000 units sold.
