Madonna Lands her 43rd #1 Dance Hit with “Turn Up the Radio”

August 27, 2012

Currently traversing the world on her massively successful MDNA tour, Madonna is still making news stateside as the third release from her recent # 1 MDNA album, “Turn Up the Radio” hits the top of the Dance Charts  (and becomes her third #1 dance hit in a row from that album). That gives her a record-extending 43 chart toppers on that list. It’s pretty incredible and her lead is giant as Janet Jackson is far behind in second with only 19 # 1’s there. The single is also going for pop radio adds soon and could extend her lead for the artist with the most top tens on the Hot 100 (She currently leads with 38 top ten hits)… According to Billboard, Madonna has now amassed 156 #1 albums, videos and singles on their charts more than any other artist in history. Head to Billboard here for more info on Madonna’s amazing chart accomplishments. And take a look at all of the Grammy winning Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame icon’s # 1 dance hits below.

Madonna Grabs her 41st # 1 Dance Hit!

March 17, 2012

It seems like only an hour ago, I posted two clips from Madonna’s new album… Oh wait, I did, but now we have more Madge news. Today, Billboard just announced Madonna has the new # 1 Dance hit in the nation with “Give Me All Your Luvin'” featuring Nicky Minaj & M.I.A. The track with remixes by Nicky Romero, Laidback Luke and LMFAO rose to the top in only 4 weeks and becomes her record-breaking 41st # 1 Dance hit. She has now had # 1 hits on this chart in four different decades going back to her first chart topper “Holiday/Lucky Star” in 1983. She extends her lead for most # 1s on this chart as Janet Jackson is waaaaaaaaaay behind in second with 19… I also think she will be extending it to 42 chart toppers as her new single “Girl Gone Wild” is exploding on the dance chart (and expect several more smashes from the new album MDNA out March 26th).

Katy Perry Breaks Records while Jay Z & Kanye bow Big on the Charts

August 17, 2011

Katy Perry has finally out done Madonna, Whitney, Celine and Janet in the record books. She just landed her fifth # 1 single from her Teenage Dream album with “Last Friday Night”. Bolstered by a ridiculously huge amount of airplay and added sales from a remix by Missy Elliott, the song makes it five in a row for Perry as she becomes the first female artist and second singer in history to land five # 1’s on the Hot 100 from a single album. She follows Michael Jackson who did it with his Bad album and the chart toppers “Bad”, “The Way You Make Me Feel”, “Dirty Diana” Man in the Mirror” and “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” with Siedah Garrett. Katy’s chart leaders were “California Gurls” with Snoop Dogg, “Teenage Dream”, “Firework”, “E.T.” with Kanye West and now “Last Friday Night”. Congrats Katy! … In case you’re wondering the artists with four # 1’s from one album are Whitney Houston (Whtiney), George Michael (Faith), Janet Jackson (Rhythm Nation 1814), Mariah Carey (Mariah Carey) and Paula Abdul (Forever Your Girl)… Madonna has had three chart toppers from an album, True Blue, while Celine has actually never had more than one # 1 single per album strangely enough.

The Top 20 Most Expensive Music Videos of All Time!

June 7, 2011

Earlier today, I happened upon the fun blog, Oh No They Didn’t, and found an article featuring the most expensive music videos of all time. The list of the 20 biggest bank breakers including clips by the expected video king and queen, Michael Jackson and Madonna. But interestingly, it also featured clips from Celine Dion and some Japanese pop star named Ayumi Hamasaki. Take a look at the list below and see if you’re surprised by some of the clips. And note the most recent American song on the list is Madonna’s “Die Another Day” from 2003. As we all know music videos are primarily showcased on the web these days as the music biz has been hovering in the toilet of late. So, instead of these awesome art pieces, we mainly get cheap CGI clips or performance clips. I sure do miss the days of waiting for important video premieres on MTV’s Making the Video. Alas, at least we can reminisce on youtube….

The most expensive music videos of all time…
1. “Scream”- Michael Jackson & Janet Jackson (1995) $ 7million
2. “Die Another Day”- Madonna (2002), $6.2 million
3. “Express Yourself”- Madonna (1989) $ 5 million
4. “Bedtime Story”- Madonna (1995) $5 million
5. “Estranged”- Guns n’ Roses (1993) $4 million
6. “Victory”- Puff Daddy w/Notorious B.I.G. & Busta Rhymes (1998), $ 2.7 million
7. “2 Legit 2 Quit”- M.C. Hammer (1992), $2.5 million
8. “Heartbreaker”- Mariah Carey w/ Jay Z (1999), $2.5 million
9. “What’s It Gonna Be?”- Busta Rhymes w/ Janet Jackson (1999), $ 2.4 million
10. “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now”- Celine Dion (1996) $2.3 million
11. “Bad”- Michael Jackson (1987), $ 2.2 million
12. “Larger Than Life”- Backstreet Boys (1999), $ 2.1 million
13. “Miami”- Will Smith (1998), $ 2 million
14. “She’s a Bitch”- Missy Elliott (1999), $ 2 million
15. “Freek”- George Michael (2004), $ 2 million
16. “My Name’s Woman”- Ayumi Hamasaki (2005), $ 2 million
17. “Fairyland”- Ayumi Hamasaki (2005), $ 2 million
18. “Green”- Ayumi Hamasaki (2008), $ 1.6 million
19. “Unpretty”- TLC (1999), $ 1.6 million
20. “Black or White”- Michael Jackson (1991), $ 1.5 million

The Foo Fighters and Rihanna make waves on the Charts

April 20, 2011

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)

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)

December 8, 2010

Joining a list that includes Whitney Houston, Monica, Paula Abdul and Mariah Carey, Katy Perry grabs a 3rd consecutive # 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 from her Grammy nominated Teenage Dream album. Her latest “Firework” hits the top this week following her previous smashes “California Gurls” with Snoop Dogg and “Teenage Dream”. That’s quite an accomplishment. Now, you may be wondering where Madonna,  Fergie,  Janet Jackson and Christina Aguilera are on that list, but all of those ladies didn’t have consecutive number #1’s from their albums, but did have at least three #1’s from a single record… Take a look at all of these ladies stats below.

Female Solo Artists with 3 Consecutive # 1 singles on one album:

Katy Perry: “California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream”, “Firework” (from Teenage Dream)
Monica: “The Boy is Mine”, “Angle of Mine”, “The First Night” (from The Boy is Mine)
Mariah Carey: she had 4 in a row~ “Vision of Love”, “Love Takes Time”, “Someday”, “I Don’t Wanna Cry” (from Mariah Carey). Then she had 3 in a row: “Fantasy”, “One Sweet Day” with Boyz II Men, “Always Be My Baby” (from Fantasy)
Whitney Houston: she had 3 & 4! First~ “Saving All My Love”, “How Will I Know”, “The Greatest Love of All” (from Whitney Houston), Then~ “I Wanna Dance with Somebody”, “Didn’t We Almost Have it All?”, “So Emotional”, “Where Do Broken Hearts Go” (from Whitney)
Paula Abdul: she had four in row~ “Straight Up”, “Forever Your Girl”, “Cold Hearted”, “Opposites Attract” (from Forever Your Girl)

Female Artist with 3 or more # 1’s from a single album (non-consecutively):

Madonna: “Live To Tell”, “Papa Don’t Preach”, “Open Your Heart” (from True Blue)
Christina Aguilera: “Genie in a Bottle”, “What a Girl Wants”, “Come On Over” (from Christina Aguilera)
Fergie: “London Bridge”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Glamorous” (from The Dutchess)
Janet Jackson: she had 4 ~ “Miss You Much”, “Escapade”, “Black Cat”, “Love Will Never Do Without You” (from Rhythm Nation 1814)

And you can add Rihanna to the list if you count the re-release of her Good Girl Gone Bad album which pushed “Take A Bow” and “Disturbia” to the top along with the # 1 “Umbrella” (with Jay Z) which was on the original version of the album.

So, what did Perry edge out to hit the top? A rising Bruno Mars and last week’s chart topper Pink. Take a look at the new top ten below and head to Billboard for more info.

Christina Aguilera WILL be a Golden Globe Nominee for Burlesque

November 18, 2010

Mark my words, Grammy winner Christina Aguilera will grab a Golden Globe nomination for her film debut Burlesque. Now, before you think the Globes are getting all Pia Zadora crazy again and you think I’ve had too much sugar this morning, let me clarify… Christina Aguilera will grab a Golden Globe nomination for her SONG “Bound to You” which she wrote for Burlesque. Yes, I’m very confident she’ll land in the Best Original Song category, much like other musical superstars have in the past. Previous nominees in the Best Song Globe category include Madonna (“I’ll Remember” from With Honors, “This Used to Be My Playground” from A League of Their Own, “Who’s that Girl” from Who’s that Girl, “Die Another Day” from Die Another Day, “Beautiful Stranger” from Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me), Beyonce (“Listen” from Dreamgirls, “Once in a Lifetime” from Cadillac Records), Janet Jackson (“Again” from Poetic Justice), and Miley Cyrus (“I Thought I Lost You” from Bolt) while Sting (“Until” from Kate and Leopold), Elton John (“Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from The Lion King), Barbra Streisand (“Evergreen” from A Star is Born), Prince (“The Song of the Heart” from Happy Feet) and Bruce Springsteen (“Streets of Philadelphia” from Philadelphia) have all won in this category. And as a co-writer of the song, Christina should add her name to that list. In fact, another Burlesque song, “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me”, written by Diane Warren and performed by Cher is likely to grab a nomination as well. They’ll have some competition from songs from Tangled, Country Strong, 127 Hours and more, but the Globes love their divas and will want a big star presence with the addition of Aguilera and Cher.
On the other hand, I highly doubt Aguilera will land an acting nomination for the film in the Best Actress Musical or Comedy category which has drawn mixed critical reaction thus far. While Beyonce was nomm’d for Dreamgirls and Madonna won for Evita, it doesn’t look like Aguilera will be able to squeak into an already overcrowded category that should see noms for Annette Bening and Julianne Moore (The Kids are Alright), Gwyneth Paltrow (Country Strong), Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs), and Reese Witherspoon (How Do you Know?) while Sally Hawkins (Made in Dagenham) and Rachel McAdams (Morning Glory) are also in the race… So, Aguilera will have to be happy with her song in the running. And what a beautiful song it is, and Christina’s performance on it is simply extraordinary. For more proof, check out Xtina singing this gorgeous song she wrote with Australian chanteuse Sia on The Tonight Show last night. And watch for the Burlesque soundtrack in stores on Tuesday the 22nd and the film in theatres on Nov. 24.
