Courtney Love may have slammed the trio from her home in the depths of obscurity, but that hasn’t stopped the likes of Katy Perry, Robin Thicke, and Miley Cyrus from continuing their domination of pop charts.
With recent entries from Eminem once considered a promising threat, the refreshing of this week’s chart sees Perry’s ‘Roar’ continue to scare off competition.
Details await below:
After her top-rated VMAs performance and subsequent September 5th premiere of the ‘Roar’ video, Katy Perry continues to make the most noise on charts as her song reigns atop the Hot 100 tally for a second week.
Leaving Robin’s ‘Blurred Lines’ to nest at #2 for another week, ‘Roar’ fended off competition from the likes of Jay Z‘s “Holy Grail” (featuring Justin Timberlake), Drake‘s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ (#10), and Lana Del Rey‘s newest number ‘Summertime Sadness’ (#6).
Two of the season’s most anticipated numbers, Gaga’s ‘Applause’ and Eminem‘s ‘Berzerk’, are finding their ways down the charts (despite strong starts). While the ‘Poker Face’ performer saw her tune dealt a move down the charts from 6-7, Em’s ‘Berzerk’ plunge in its second week after a 48% drop in sales.
