Chart Check: Rihanna Reigns and Katy Gains

While Coldplay‘s ‘Princess of China’ featuring pop princess Rihanna has fallen from reign in Billboard’s upper half,  the impressive debut of her assisted Drake cut ‘Take Care’ (the title track from his #1 album) at number 9 and ‘We Found Love’ still at number 1 have kept the islander a mainstay in the top 20.  As of the refreshing of the tally tomorrow, the cuts will be joined by a third party – ‘You Da One’ – as it blasts from 73-14.

Following the Barbadian’s triple chart check is comeback queen Christina Aguilera who plays assistant to two top 10 cuts as ‘Moves Like Jagger’ moves down to number 6 and her assistance on Flo Rida‘s ‘Good Feeling’ sits at #8.

Yet, while Adele‘s reign on the album charts top 10 just won’t let up, no other diva has dominated the Billboard charts like Katy Perry.  Her album has struggled to hit double platinum, but her singles are double placing on singles chart with her latest ‘The One That Got Away’ now sitting in the top 10 (at #10).  The sixth top 10 single from this album, the last album to accomplish such feat was Janet Jackson‘s ‘janet’ album in 1993-1994.  And, with five #1 singles from one album, Perry not only sets a record for females, but also threatens to best a single’s record set by Janet’s pop icon brother Michael Jackson.

Looks like gal pals Rihanna and Katy have a new reason to cheer.  Both album sales may fail, but Itune purchases prevail.

Keri Hilson Snubs Beyonce?

 

Following the release of her sophomore set ‘No Boys Allowed‘, Keri Hilson has risen to become one of music’s leading staples- slowly but surely cementing her status as the current go to girl for mid tempo Contemporary R&B.

However, despite her undeniable success and new found notoriety ,she still finds herself coming under criticism for having what some might call an ‘off attitude’.

While we here at That Grape Juice wholeheartedly  disagree with that stance (she’s nice to us every time we see her), there are some who- quite unfairly- put their dislike for  her down to her alleged ‘beef’ with fellow belter Beyonce.

Now peep this video sent to us by a reader this evening and let us know what you think about it…
