The Foo Fighters and Rihanna make waves on the Charts

Rihanna joins an elite club and the Foo Fighters make a big splash on the pop music charts this week. First on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, veteran rockers the Foo Fighters grab their first # 1 as their latest, Wasting Light, sells 235,000 copies to debut at the summit. It leads four debuts in the top ten followed by Allison Kraus & Union Station, Paul Simon and Mexican rockers Mana. Just outside the top ten at # 11, newcomer Jessie J debuts with her first release Who You Are. Check out the new top ten below.

Top Ten Albums:
1. Wasting Light- Foo Fighters (debut)
2. 21- Adele (last week~ 1)
3. Paper Airplane- Allison Krauss & Union Station (debut)
4. So Beautiful or So What- Paul Simon (debut)
5. Drama y Luz- Mana (debut)
6. Femme Fatale- Britney Spears (lw~ 2)
7. Songs For Japan- Various Artists (lw~ 7)
8. Rolling Papers- Wiz Khalifia (lw~ 5)
9. F.A.M.E.- Chris Brown (lw~ 6)
10. Sigh No More- Mumford & Sons (lw~8)

Over on the Hot 100 Singles chart, Rihanna’s “S & M” hits the top due to the new “Ri Remix” featuring Britney Spears that spurs sales up over 100%. It’s able to dethrone Katy Perry’s “E.T.” but both songs and Lady Gaga’s new one “Judas” which debuts at # 10 could fight for supremacy next week. I hope Adele’s fast rising “Rolling in the Deep” makes a play for the top as well… Check out the new top ten singles below.

Hot 100 Top Ten
1. “S&M” –Rihanna w/Britney Spears (lw~ 2)
2. “E.T.”- Katy Perry w/Kanye West (lw~ 1)

4. “Down on Me”- Jeremiah (lw~ 6)
