Billboard Update

On the Hot 100, Rihanna manages a three week stay at #1 with Rude Boy, which has since become her 6th #1 single on the Hot 100. As I'd predicted earlier, Lady Gaga's Telephone doesn't have much chart longevity, slipping to #5 this week. In anticipation for teen sensation Justin Bieber's My World 2.0, lead single Baby creeps up the Hot 100 yet again, moving up to #8, up from last week's position of #10. Adam Lambert's Whataya Want From Me is still moving up the charts without even promoting it in the US, moving up to #20 this week. Thanks to that performance on American Idol, Miley Cyrus' When I Look At You managed to shift more than double of what it had sold in the previous week. When I Look At You shoots to #25 up from #58 the previous week. Sean Kingston and Justin Bieber's collaboration on Eenie Meenie manages to debut at #30 this week. After news broke out that Your Love Is My Drug is set to be Ke$ha's third single, fans have been snapping it up. It shot straight from #91 to #57. That Should Be Me, one of the tracks off Justin Bieber's album debuts at #92 this week. Timbaland's collaboration with Katy Perry on If We Ever Meet Again has been a hit in the UK and has finally landed on the Hot 100 at #96. The second single I Never Told You from Colbie Caillat's Breakthrough debuts at #99.

On the Billboard 200 albums chart, Justin Bieber debuts at #1 with My World 2.0, shifting well over 280, 000 copies of his album and thanks to that, My World shoots to #5, up from #10 the previous week. Danny Gokey's My Best Days is falling faster and faster, selling less than 10, 000 copies this week, dropping to #50 this week. Miley Cyrus' EP has seen the effects of that American Idol performance as well as The Time Of Our Lives moves to #64, up from #74 last week. Mariah Carey's Memors Of An Imperfect Angel moves up the charts from #158 to #145.
