It took nine weeks, but someone has finally decided not to call Carly Rae Jepsen. That person is rapper Flo Rida who takes his third top ten hit of 2012, “Whistle” to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 this week ending Jepsen’s long reign. Following the top five hits “Wild Ones” and “Good Feeling”, Flo Rida’s “Whistle” does what few third singles can do peaking higher than their predecessors and becomes hit third single to reach the summit following “Low” and “Right Round”. Flo holds off Ellie Goulding who retains her bullet at # 2 with “Lights” and a new competitor with fun.‘s second consecutive top ten hit “Some Nights” flying into the top ten at # 9.
