Chart Check: Bruno Mars Wins, Ne-Yo Notches New Top 10 [Hot 100]

neyo thatgrapejuice bruno mars

Bruno Mars’ megahit ‘Uptown Funk‘ seems to have no intention on going downtown Billboard Hot 100 avenue as it reigns for a 9th consecutive week.

The feat not only gives Mars’ his longest running reign on the chart’s perch, but also pencils him in history books into an exclusive club of hitmakers to ever lead the Hot 100 and Official UK Singles chart for at least 7 weeks (Bryan Adams“(Everything I Do) I Do It for You,” 1991; Whitney Houston‘s “I Will Always Love You,” 1992-93; and Rihanna‘s “Umbrella,” featuring Jay Z, 2007 complete the quartet).

Elsewhere in the top 10, the only new faces seen are those of serial pop hitmakers Pitbull & Ne-Y0 with their hit ‘The Time of Our Lives,’ marking the latter’s first appearance on the Hot 100 in over 2 years!  See where they landed as well as the other movement on the single’s chart below:

Beyonce & Lady Gaga Led ‘Stevie Wonder Tribute’ A Moderate Ratings Draw Despite All-Star Lineup

beyonce-thatgrapejuice-stevie wonder

Not even the combined powers of music super divas Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Hudson were enough to shift killer ratings for the second installment of the ‘Grammy tribute’ series – this time paying homage the academy’s most decorated artist Stevie Wonder.

Airing February 15th on CBS, the showing – a critics top pick –  did manage to draw a respectable viewing audience, but still nearly less than half of last year’s episode in honor of the Beatles (which drew a whopping 13.95 million viewers).  The numbers are all the more disappointing as, unlike the Beatles tribute, Wonder’s installment had little competition elsewhere on television.

But, as reports below reveal, all was not lost.  For, after the likes of Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monae, John Legend, and Ed Sheeran put their ever modern twists on Wonder’s classic hits, interest in the 70s & 80s numbers found itself skyrocketing on top sites Spotify and Shazam.

And The Predictions Are In: Ne-Yo’s ‘Non-Fiction’ Set To Sell…

ne-yo-non-fiction-thatgrapejuice

Fact: Despite being greeted with mixed critical review, ‘Non-Fiction,’ the latest album from serial hitmaker Ne-yo, is bound to break into the Billboard 200’s top 10 upon the chart’s refreshing next week.  Coming as the only new title predicted to impact the chart’s currently reigning dectet, the album will give the singer-songwriter his sixth consecutive top 10 entry.

Fueled by the Jeezy-assisted ‘Money Can’t Buy’ and top 40 hit ‘She Knows’ ft. Juicy J, ‘Non-Fiction’ is set to be the crooner’s second release to hit charts without a top 10 single to support it.  A feat arguably to blame for its first week sales performance, as the project is on track to deliver his lowest numbers to date.

Find out the industry forecast below:
