The release week of Katy Perry's sophomore album Teenage Dream bumped up single sales for her current single, the title track and California Gurls, which helped push both tracks up a spot to reach #2 and #7 on the Hot 100 this week. Teenage Dream has reached a new peak by the way, standing at #2 while album track Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) debuts down the chart at #67. However, the might of Katy Perry just cannot get a hold on Eminem and Rihanna, who have been ruling the charts for so long with Love The Way You Lie holding up at #1 again. However, I don't expect this to last for too long. After slipping off the Top 10 last week, Taylor Swift's Mine has returned to the Top 10, moving up to #9 this week while Ke$ha's latest single Take It Off rounds out the Top 10 and reaches a new peak of #10 this week on the Hot 100. Adam Lambert's latest single If I Had You stays at its current spot of #32 for a second week. OneRepublic has achieved a new peak for their new single Secrets as it swings into #35 this week. Sara Bareilles' King of Anything remains stuck at #58 this week, just 7 spots away from its peak when it debuted on the chart. Despite her personal life struggles, I truly believe Fantasia has overcome them and Bittersweet has yet moved up again to reach a new peak on the Hot 100 at #74. Daughtry's latest single September from platinum-selling sophomore album Leave This Town has moved up to a new peak as well, hitting #75 this week.
On the Billboard 200 albums chart, Katy Perry's Teenage Dream has hit #1, trailed by a very different artist Fantasia, with her latest set Back To Me. OneRepublic's second album Waking Up makes a move up to #105 this week.
