Katy Perry, Chris Brown and Jennifer Hudson storm the Charts

Katy Perry made big news on the Billboard charts this week as she grabbed her fourth consecutive # 1 single from her Teenage Dream album with her latest “E.T.” featuring Kanye West. That follows “California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream” and “Firework” and puts Katy in an elite group of artists to achieve 4 chart toppers from one album. Some big names in that group include Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Usher, Paula Abdul, Mariah Carey and George Michael. “E.T.” dethrones Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” after a strong six-week reign and also leads the Hot Digital Songs Sales chart. Overall, this is Katy’s fifth # 1 on the Hot 100 as her first big hit “I Kissed A Girl” led for seven weeks in 2008… Take a look at this week’s new top ten below.

Top Ten Singles on the Hot 100:
1. “E.T.”- Katy Perry w/Kanye West (last week~ 2)
2. “S & M”- Rihanna (lw~ 3)
3. “Fuck You”- Cee Lo Green (lw~ 4)
4. “Born This Way”- Lady Gaga (lw~ 1)
5. “Just Can’t Get Enough”- The Black Eyed Peas (lw~ 5)
6. “No Sleep”- Wiz Khalifa (debut)

8. “Fuckin’ Perfect”- Pink
9. “Down on Me”- Jeremiah w/ 50 Cent (lw~ 10)
10. “On the Floor”- Jennifer Lopez w/Pitbull (lw~ 13)

Switching gears to the album chart, we have a big seven debuts in the top ten led by that abusive jackass Chris Brown whose craptastic new album, F.A.M.E. (which stands for “forgive all my enemies”~ rather ironic with his recent terrible behavior on G.M.A. that clearly created more enemies… Seriously, on a personal note, he is an appalling person and I don’t know why anyone is buying his music. I could go on and on but I digress)… Brown is able to hold off Jennifer Hudson whose sophomore album, the brilliant I Remember Me, debuts in the runner-up spot just like her first album. Other debuts in the top ten come from rockers The Strokes, the Songs for Japan benefit album, and Panic at the Disco.
