Chart Check: Lorde Surprises, Lady Gaga Rises

Published: Wednesday 20th Nov 2013 by Rashad

Last week Eminem & Rihanna scared away the competition with their ‘Monster’ debut on Billboard Hot 100.

Alas, their roar – nor the ‘Roar’ of a certain Katy Perry – has managed to frighten the likes of Billboard champion Lorde as her breakaway hit ‘Royals’ claims the throne for its 8th week.

But, as the gap between ‘Monster’ and ‘Royals’ closes, there are others newcomers on the prowl for the top seat as well.  Cue Lady  Gaga

Via Billboard:

“…Lady Gaga tallies a 14th week in the Hot 100’s top 10 (10-9) with “Applause,” encompassing the entire run of the set’s lead single. Meanwhile, second radio track “Do What U Want,” featuring R. Kelly, flies 48-18 on the Hot 100 after debuting at No. 13 three weeks ago…”

Billboard Hot 100

1. Lorde – ‘Royals’

2. Eminem & Rihanna – ‘The Monster’

3. Miley Cyrus – ‘Wrecking Ball’

4. Avicii – ‘Wake Me Up’

5. Katy Perry – ‘Roar’

6.  OneRepublic – ‘Counting Stars’

7. Imagine Dragons – ‘Demons’

8. Drake – ‘Hold One We’re Going Home’

9.  Lady Gaga – ‘Applause’

10.  Pitbull ft. Ke$ha – ‘Timber’

    I’m so tired of that Lorde song OMG!

  2. Common Sense November 20, 2013

    Good for Lorde. Always nice to see young artists not following the rest of the crowd and actually releasing quality music. If only the same could be said of other artists *cough Gaga cough.*

    LORDE >>>Lana

    Thank God LORD IS BLOCKING R****** FROM GETTING ANOTHER NUMBER 1 SHE DOESN’T DESERVE.

  4. JOHNVIDAL November 20, 2013

    Rihanna really should thank half of the men in the industry for half of the #1´s she has. Really unfair. She has some hits of her own, but really, singles after Stay are flopping and nobody was caring (not saying that she should have more than 2 successful singles from one album, that´s enough) but of course here is Eminem again to give her another possible #1. In how many songs has she been a featured artist? Not that she contributes to the songs when she is the only singer in the song either, but at least it makes it kind of fair. But all these features really saved her career from looking below average, now it looks average at least 🙂 Without all this she would be on Katy Perry´s level of hit singles.
    Anyway, happy that someone so young and talented and with a really different song is unexpectedly slaying like this. Go Lorde!

    • The Boy Toy November 20, 2013

      Hi John Pressdal!

      Live Your Life, Run This Town, All Of The Lights, Love The Way You Lie and hopefully Monster are her only featured #1s. 😀

      THE REST OF HER #1s, top 10’s and 20’s are ALL HER. Thanks for your essay & concern though!

      • JOHNVIDAL November 20, 2013

        And you have the f****** nerve to say “her only”???? lol

      • The Boy Toy November 20, 2013

        Yes the f*** I do. You b****** act like half of her hits are features. FOH

      • ARTPOP WILL FLOP November 20, 2013

        b**** you are f****** crazy… all these one chapter for riri, this shows how much you care.

  5. CARESS November 20, 2013

    Queen Rihanna will have her 13th #1 single next week.

    King Eminem will have his 5th.

    I AM ECSTATIC.

    P.S: Where is that Woman’s single??? Still scared??? Oh.

  6. Beyanca November 20, 2013

    Hmmm… I wonder if the monster will go number one.
    Lorde is slaying.

  7. Beyanca November 20, 2013

    And damn, the top ten has been looking like this for weeks.

  8. Beyanca November 20, 2013

    Miley Katy, and even gaga are slaying to.

  9. Yuree November 20, 2013

    B*tch, will you S.T.F.U already!!!

    All you ever do is rant & rage about the same f*ckery that nobody, in all honesty, gives a damn about.

    GAWWWSH!!!

    Lorde > Lana

  11. Rosie November 20, 2013

    I see all that payola is working for Locals.
    Too bad it’s flopping in the rest of the world.
    One hit wonder, just like Carly Rae Jepsen.

  12. Dreamlover November 20, 2013

    Good for Lorde! Slaying the charts at 17 with an alternative/indie song! It will be interesting to see if she is able to score any other hits. As for Rihanna, I think it’s silly to say that she is piggy-backing off of Eminem and other guys who have featured her. Oftentimes it is THEM who seek her out because they know her voice can SLAY a hook. The Monster has an infectious hook that Rihanna murders. Not many people have that ability. Her hooks are what people latch onto in the songs and what they remember most about them. Sooo….you shouldn’t trivialize that fact. Anyways congrats to everyone (especially Drake, Katy, and Gaga, who have been in the top ten for over 3 months I think?)

  13. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) November 20, 2013

    Let the stan wars begin….

  14. Rosie November 20, 2013

    Death at Borde being alternative/indie. That song is purely pop and extremely CHR friendly.
    Don’t bring up it going #1 on Alt because US Alt radio is basically pop extended at this point.

    • TurntUp4Cici November 20, 2013

      Someone is jealous.

      • Rosie November 20, 2013

        Has I’m Out (of the Top 1000) gone sandpaper yet?

  15. Tisha November 20, 2013

    This is why folks like Miley and Gaga are never as successful even when they top the charts. They’ve done how much promo, spent how much money, did how many publicity stunts and didn’t top the girl who just sang a song without wigs, grinding, blunts or costumes.

    At the end of the day they spend half of whatever they make from album sales before their albums are even out for 6 months.

  16. Rosie November 20, 2013

    Dog s***>>Ciara

  17. Slayty Perry (Birthday) November 20, 2013

    Roar is at 3.7 million singles sold. Almost 4x platinum. Side note, Ke$ha came out of nowhere. I thought she was done for

  18. iconic cici November 20, 2013

    Awwww Rosie jealous little lorde is slaying LaNOBODYna

  19. ARTPOP WILL FLOP November 20, 2013

  20. RICHIE_RICH November 20, 2013

    That song goes in sis.

  21. Rosie November 20, 2013

    Z Squad spend more time on TGJ than they do supporting their fave.
    Stay mad BTD outsold Cierror’s discography.

    Anyways with how local it is and how poorly it’s selling outside of the US/Oceania Borde’s album will do 2.5 million worldwide at best.

  22. Touché November 20, 2013

    Hmmmm….

  23. LastDOn November 20, 2013

    Wow the biggest flop of the century spend 14th weeks in the top 10 and sold 2 million!! Damn applesauce flopause or whatever u haters call it.APPLaUSE spent 3 months in the top !!

  24. RICHIE_RICH November 20, 2013

    Congrats to all…Get it Lorde she is slaying.

  25. Sisqo is a Legend November 20, 2013

    THAT CI-ERROR STAN CAN’T KEEP QUEEN RIHANNA OUT OF HIS/HER MIND, ISN’T HE/SHE TIRED OF GETTING DRAGGED. DEAD @JOHNVIDAL THINKING THAT OTHER ARTIST GAVE RIHANNA HALF OF THOSE #1S

    SOS #1
    UMBRELLA #1
    DISTURBIA #1
    TAKE A BOW #1
    RUDE BOY #1

    • GAGARULES November 20, 2013

      LOL JAY Z HELPED ‘UMBRELLA’ GO #1.

      DRAKE SOLD ‘WHAT’S MY NAME’ TO #1.

      ‘S&M’ WAS STRUGGLING TO HIT #1 UNTIL BRITNEY JUMPED ON IT.

      SORRY BABE, PIGGYBACKHANNA WOULDN’T BE ANYWHERE IF IT WASN’T FOR……OTHER PEOPLE LOL

  26. beyawnce November 20, 2013

    Royals is a nice song but it is so overplayed. Em just uploaded a picture of them starting to shoot the monster 🙂

  27. LORDE STAN November 20, 2013

    WHEN WILL GAGA, LANA OR BEYONCE?

    • GAGARULES November 20, 2013

      I DUNNO WHO THOSE OTHER 2 ARE, BUT GAGA HAS SEEN #1 FOR 8 WEEKS BEFORE. MORE THAN ONCE LOL

    • WRONG November 20, 2013

      LOL pure heroine is doing worse than born to die was 6 weeks into its main release. Pure heroine is 33 on the uk charts 3 weeks in whereas born to die was number 2 at the same stage. The reality is pure heroine is flopping like crazy outside Oceania and North America. Come back when lorde achieves 5 million +

  28. BOWDOWN2BEY November 20, 2013

    miley and katy still slaying #getYoursGurls

  29. beyawnce November 20, 2013

    Ciara fans still acting like ciara is moving big numbers HA

  30. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 20, 2013

    Lorde has so far sold 700K WW of her CD and is selling on average 40K a week. She hasn’t left the iTunes top ten since release, winning.

    And she didn’t have to turn her alternative/indie song into a generic dance remix to score a top ten, plus she can sing. Always a pleasure to see young artists rise like this.

  31. GAGARULES November 20, 2013

    LOL APPLAUSE 14 WKS IN THE TOP 10, 2 MILLION SOLD?

    BUT I THOUGHT YOU HATERS SAID IT WAS A FLOP…WHAT HAPPENED? LMAO

  32. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 20, 2013

    And not the pressed Gaga fan writing a novel on Rihanna when he should be purchasing multiple copies of ArtFlop.

    Not your fav causing job losses at interscope with a mediocre floppy disc no one wanted to buy.

    Not interscope having to use Eminem’s money and operating on that line of credit simply because your fav burned through $25 million USD and saw no dividend after a $5.90 discount.

  33. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 20, 2013

    Not the pressed Gaga fan pretending to like Madonna and standing for a going concern who is a watered down mediocre version of a Madonna tribute act writing a Bible on Rihanna, I can’t.

    Not when you should be purchasing ArtFlop to stop those job losses at interscope.

  34. SAM LOVES RIHANNA November 20, 2013

    When was the last time Beyonce was in the top 10??? #sips

  35. SAM LOVES RIHANNA November 20, 2013

    When was the last time Bee-yawn-say been in that Top 10??? #sips

  36. BEYONCE 53 MILLION November 20, 2013

    WHY IS RIHANNA BROKE???
    WHY IS ZZZIARA IRRELEVANT???
    WHY IS GAGA FINISHED AFTER 5 YEARS???
    WHY WILL LORDE BE FORGOTTEN BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR???

  37. BEYONCE 53 MILLION November 20, 2013

    BOTH BEYONCE AND RIHJECT WERE SELLING BIG NUMBERS 5 YEARS INTO THERE CAREERS. GAGA IS A NOVELTY ACT AND HER SHELF LIFE HAS EXPIRED NOW DEAL

    I cant with these lies! Gag’s longest reigning #1 lasted 6 weeks with Plagiarize This Way. Poker Face and Just Dance only lasted 2 weeks each. You tried.

    More lies. Applause is clocked at 1.6 million sold in the US. By comparison, Ariana Grande’s The Way has sold 2.5 million, Selena Gomez’s Come & Get It has sold 2.3 million, and Demi Lovato’s Heart Attack 2.1 million. Gag was outsold by Disney/Nickelodeon girls

  41. Queen Minaj November 20, 2013

    But starships was top 10 for 21 consecutive weeks.

  42. Mark111 November 20, 2013

    Only song I like on this list is Imagine Dragon’s Demon. I love Rihanna, but Monster is blah to me. If they would drop a video, it would grab that #1 spot.

    Oh and @JOHNVIDAL is mad as phuck, lol. The only #1’s Rih is feat on is Live Your Life and Love The Way You Lie. Nice try tho.

  43. Mark111 November 20, 2013

    “Where’s Ciara on the chart?” Hahahaha, that still cracks me up.

  44. dark horse November 20, 2013

    Beyonce hasn’t seen that top 10 in years how embarrassing.

  45. dark horse November 20, 2013

    John is mad he wishes Gaga was racking up them number 1s like Katy and Rihanna.

  46. HOTSTUFF November 20, 2013

  47. LastDOn November 20, 2013

    Applause hit the 2M mark this week so dats alot for a Flop single!

  48. KING B November 20, 2013

    I understand why would you navy get tired of her son…She is one of the reasons why Rihanna ain’t coming out with a new album this year, Lorde woulda snatched that wig within a second. She had no chance this year at all!!! Smart move on her side though

  49. Lovebird (Britney Jean – 03.12.13) November 20, 2013

    Not King B talking about Rihanna’s wig getting snatched when Beyonce hasn’t seen a top ten since Telephone.

    Does your fav even remember what a top ten looks or feels like? She’s having nostalgia moments considering she’s having her floppy songs radio tested.

  50. Sisqo is a Legend November 20, 2013

  62. Rosie November 20, 2013

    @WRONG Yes at those receipts. I keep trying to tell the girls that Borde is more local than country music. Not to mention that only 17% of Born To Die’s 5 million worldwide total is from outside of the US. Global queen.
