Chart Check: Katy Perry Prevails, Eminem Fails

Published: Wednesday 11th Sep 2013 by Rashad


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:

Via Billboard:

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.

Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 (as of its refreshing tomorrow)

1.  Katy Perry – ‘Roar’

2.  Robin Thicke – ‘Blurred Lines’

3.  Lorde – ‘Royals’

4.  Jay Z ft. Justin Timberlake – ‘Holy Grail’

5.  Avicii – ‘Wake Me Up’

6. Lana Del Rey & Cedric Gervais –  “Summertime Sadness”

7.  Lady Gaga – ‘Applause’

8.  Drake – ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’

9.  Capital Cities’ ‘Safe & Sound’

10.  Eminem – Berzerk

  3. Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

    I really LOVE Lorde’s “Royals”, it’s such a feel good song. And Eminem will most likely bring it the second single, “Bezerk” is s*** but Eminem always brings it, cannot deny that.

    Congrats to the Killer Queen for week 2 at topping the charts with an iron clad hit, Caca can never again, nor Beyonce. Hell, whilst one is jumping around like an umpa lumpa in a theatrical Wizard of Oz butchering, the other one is hoping around with Oprah to try and score a top ten, I cannot.

    The Monsters must give the worst blowjobs if they cannot get FLOPause in the top 5 at least. I cannot at FLOPause’s struggle.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily September 11, 2013

      Hi Lovebird!

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

        Hi Stephy

    • Rosie September 11, 2013

      At this rate Lana will outpeak Awfulause. Mess.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

        I cannot at FLOPause’s struggle.

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 11, 2013

      Yasss at Gaga being on ur mind. Stay pressed, carpet muncher.

      • Common Sense September 12, 2013

        Someone’s pressed and distressed that Gaga is on her way out. Face it people are over that gimmick.

    • Bobby September 12, 2013

      Please stop – Katy STANS and BOWS DOWN to Beyoncé. Her words, not mine. Check her twitter hater.

  4. jake.ubb September 11, 2013

    Blurred Lines is absolutely killing it – that song came out in the spring (crazy). Lorde and Avicii in the top ten is a nice sight! The more I hear “Roar”, the more I like it and I am glad it’s on top. Applause is okay but it’s not going to be on top, because the verses are just too weird and the voice she puts on isn’t easy on the listener’s ears. Here’s to hoping Gaga comes harder with the second single.

    Twitter: jmurdoc2 for a follow-back!

    • Stop the drama Start the music September 11, 2013

      The fact is Applause is the much better song than Kanker sore aka Roar. Harlem Shake was number 1 on billboard. That doesn’t mean it was great tho. There wasn’t even lyrics.

      • Slayty Perry (Dark Horse) September 11, 2013

        Applause is trash. The end

    • Luluuuuu September 12, 2013

      Applause is different and creative and a change. Roar is that basic empowerment s*** you be hearing on the radio all the time with basic ass lyrics too. Katy Perry just release the same kinda stuff all the time.

      • Common Sense September 12, 2013

        Different? Creative? It’s a generic dance song that has become the norm for Gaga. Take off the blinds you clearly have on.

  5. JJFan1814 September 11, 2013

    That song Royals sucks s***. I don’t care. I don’t like it and I absolutely am appalled by how well it is doing.

    On the other hand I am so happy Lana is prevailing, (always root for underdogs)…And Avicii is finally getting recognition. I discovered his music back in 2011, yall should check out his “Don’t Give Up On Us” feat Yolanda Selini!!! The song that made me love Avicii’s work!

    • Rosie September 11, 2013

      Avicii is amazing, even though I don’t see why Wake Me Up is smashing as hard as it is.
      Otherwise A+ to this entire comment.

      • dustin September 11, 2013

        eh… i saw avicii live in vegas on memorial day weekend. paid good money to get into that party (as well as afrojack the night before) and they both were boring to NO end. wake me up is maybe the weakest avicii single i’ve heard thus far.

        and sorry but lorde is dope as f***. i am guessing you don’t like her because she gets compared to ms. lana a lot… fact is there is room for both of them and theyre both a breath of fresh air.

        plus chick is only 16. when is the last time we had a 16 year old on the scene that could sing, HARMONIZE and song write? not to mention her material is rock solid.

  6. Stephy Tha Lambily September 11, 2013

    This entire top 10 list sucks TBH

    • NO September 11, 2013

      it only sucks cuz mariah aint there…right?

      • Stephy Tha Lambily September 11, 2013

        Nope! Even if Mariahs Beautiful was in it… It wold still suck…

      • Slaylor swift September 11, 2013

        Mariah fatass hasn’t seen a top 10 in ages dahling lol

      • Stephy Tha Lambily September 11, 2013

        Mariah Careys last top 10 was in 2009! Thats not ages… Besides she already has like 30 top 10 hits including 18 numb… Oh forget it Im Tooo Booked For You Foolishness

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

        And Taylor Swift hasn’t seen a negative STD test since she was 12 years old.

  7. NO September 11, 2013

    • JER September 11, 2013

      B**** who just disliked my comment I will kill

    • dustin September 11, 2013

      you’re on point! her entire EP takes heaping dumps on most of whats on the upper tiers of the hot 100.

      at 16 this b**** has more talent in her pinky than most have in their entire bodies.

  11. Mark111 September 11, 2013

    Where’s Rosie at? She been telling y’all about her fave and y’all called her crazy. Rosie is the hostess of TGJ, cause she been talling y’all when and where to sit. ——> _/

    • Rosie September 11, 2013

      Hey sis.

  12. Rosie September 11, 2013

    Yawn at this top ten. Lana and Capital Cities are the only two artists that I could care about on there.
    Kii @ Roar still slaying while Awfulause flops to hell like it is doing in every other country that matters.
    Kii again @ Lana being ahead of Gaga.
    Borde is exactly that.

  13. Molly September 11, 2013

    Royals is overrated to the max

    Congratulations to lana botox ass on finally getting an American hit

    Lol & looks like gagas not getting that number 1 hahahahahahahahaha

    • Rosie September 11, 2013

      This struggle shade.
      Where is I’m Out sis?

      • Stephy Tha Lambily September 11, 2013

        Rosie you make me wanna clap my hands & stump my feet…

  14. Britney Stan September 11, 2013

    Dead at roar still slaying and applause drops down spots every week.. Shout out to Lana tho you know she had it in her tbh

  15. s** dreams xo September 11, 2013

    To bad summertime sadness will never hit # 1 tho.

    • Rosie September 11, 2013

      Too bad Gaga is probably the biggest falloff of all time.
      BTW SS charted higher and/or sold more in ever country it was released in.

      • s** dreams xo September 11, 2013

        f*** you.. how is she falling off? she had a top 5 hit something lanas lame ass is bearly getting the chance to do shes 5 years late sweetie gagas been there done that.

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

        But Caca will never do it again. T***** Caca is falling off like an Antoine Dodson youtube video. No one cares about that crack head b**** anymore.

        All those blowjobs you gave out and you still cannot get FLOPause in the top 5, you must give the worst blowjobs.

      • Rosie September 11, 2013

        And? When Chartflop was announced the Little Cutters thought T***** was going to reign supreme with that Rupaul reject mess and that Katy was going to be officially over by next year. When So Legit leaked the Cutters thought Lana was 100% done because according to them, all of Lana’s fans were Cutters also.
        Too bad the LCs are so delusional, what they didn’t and still don’t realize is that T***** is seen as a total freak by the public while Katy and Lana are adored by the general public/almost everyone under the age of 30, respectively.

    • Stephy Tha Lambily September 11, 2013

      I KNOW RIGHT… GOING NUMBER 1 In AMERICA>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  16. rIhanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS September 11, 2013

    Em is not failing he has already sold nearly half a million. The song came from nowhwhere and Em has barely been seen. Katy has been everywhere. When em hits the promo, you will see… his album sales and tour next year. Applause has sold a million in 2 weeks. HA

    • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

      Gurl stop lying, Applause is at 700K, FLOP FLOP FLOP.

      Katy Perry – Roar 1.7 Million

      T***** Caca – FLOPause 700K

      and they were released in the same week, plus Caca has performed her circus on every stage that will book her, whilst Katy slays whilst taking a s***.

      • rIhanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS September 11, 2013

        Applause’ passes the 1 million mark WW
        FRANCE : 15,000
        GERMANY : 25,000
        ITALY : 8,000
        UNITED KINGDOM : 130,000
        others in Europe : 55,000
        AUSTRALIA : 40,000
        SOUTH KOREA : 70,000
        UNITED STATES : 755,000


      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

        1 million WORLDWIDE for FLOPause

        1.7 million USA for Roar, it’s no longer a fair battle.

        Here’s a nice one for you;

        Pop babe Katy Perry certainly will have something to Roar about – as the track is on course to snare her fourth British No.1.

        The latest single from the 28-year-old raven haired singer is outselling the rest of the Top 10 combined


        I cannot at T***** Caca struggling like a Miley Cyrus twerk session.

      • rIhanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS September 11, 2013

        Why do u think Gaga is flopping? Just 6 months ago, people said GAGA WILL COME BACK END RIHANNA . Again.

      • rIhanna is BIGGER THN BEYONCE EVER WAS September 11, 2013

        Does gaga have another album left in her? If is true that rih has recorded a hook for gaga, is it due to gaga desperation to chart.?

      • Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

        Caca is flopping because she forgot what it’s all about, she forgot it’s about the music and not the antics. She’s concentrating too much on the antics and not the music.

      • rih rox((…and so does Steve-O)) September 11, 2013

        Well said Lovebird.

        To be honest I want Rih back….none of these girls can do it like Rih.

      • XXX September 12, 2013

        who talked about the stupid transvestite named gaga? Gurl talked about eminem…

    • XXX September 12, 2013

      sorry, didn’t read the last sentence

  17. Lovebird (PRISM – 10.22.13)) September 11, 2013

    I bet the suicides never thought their self esteem could get any lower, only to find out that they give the worst blowjobs in the world, evident by the falling rate of FLOPause.

    So after 6516161615165 blowjobs and endless spitting and swallowing, they suck so bad even at that that they couldn’t help their Father Monster crack the TOP 5, I cannot at the suicides.

  18. Stop the drama Start the music September 11, 2013

    The fact that Roar will not be remembered months from now though….it’s no “Thriller” type of song. It’s impact will not hold standard.
    I have nothing against Roar. I just like Applause better because its a good dance tune. And it’s already used in a commercial so it’s my personal preference.

    • XXX September 12, 2013

      the only thing likeable bout applause is the chorus. the verses are a horrible mess.

      you’re right about roar – but so what? since when does every number one has to be a thriller? it’s still more successful than applause…

      if gagas fame era wasn’t as great as it was, she would work as stripper all over again, cause we all know BTW was only successful cause of the Fame…

  19. Slayty Perry (Dark Horse) September 11, 2013

    Lmao the fact that some people thought Katy would flop. Roar is fixing to be 2x platinum in less than a month. I won’t be surprised if it makes Billboard’s Top 10 Selling Songs of the year tbh. I can’t imagine the meltdowns at Gaga’s camp right now. All this promo she’s rolling out and its STILL in decline. A mess.

  20. theman September 12, 2013

    Em has to gain more radio play, he’s good. Gaga will rebound. They are still doing good. This site is full of crap..

  21. Me September 12, 2013

    Where’s that Ciara stan who said Summertime Sadness PEAKED, a couple weeks ago?????

    B****!!!! come out of hiding and FACE YOUR SHAME!!!!!

    GODNA will slay the all these basic pop girls!

    • Rosie September 12, 2013

      I remember when they tried to drag because Local Party outpeaked Young & Beautiful by one spot with 73389x more promo.
      They said Summertime Sadness wasn’t even going top 40. A mess.

  22. Me September 12, 2013

  23. Todd September 12, 2013

    ”Lana Del Rey‘s newest number ‘Summertime Sadness’ (#6).”??This came out last year…. Are they just releasing it NOW in the US?

    • Rosie September 12, 2013

      Just released in the US in July 🙂

  24. Suicide Blonde September 12, 2013

    Eminem is doing just fine for a non radio-friendly song like ‘Berzerk’ which is my current favorite song.

  25. cake like lady gaga September 12, 2013

    i saw the video for Roar this morning.

    BASIC ARTIST, BASIC SONG AND BASIC A** VIDEO. i feel vindicated when i say this song is for dumb 9 year olds (ie @slutbird)

    • Rosie September 12, 2013

      Seething because it’s slaying Awfulause with no effort whatsoever?

  26. ATM JAM September 12, 2013

    Lorde is only 16 and she’s slaying veterans and known chart toppers!!! When did your Fav?

    • XXX September 12, 2013

      when they came out…britney was very young, as was christina, as was rihanna…

      lets just wait and see if Lorde will still be slaying in 5 year. i wish her the best, even though i can’t her voice nor the song
