Katy Perry, Ke$ha Rihanna, Lady GaGa And Beyonce ‘Slay’ Charts With New Releases

Published: Sunday 22nd Dec 2013 by David

Consider yourself a fan of any of the ladies mentioned in the headline?

Well, if so, you have cause to celebrate this morning. That’s right, in proving the girls really do ‘run the charts’, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Ke$ha and Rihanna find themselves rocking iTunes with their latest releases!

In at #1 via Pitbull is ‘Timber’, the Ke$ha assisted jam pulled from ‘Meltdown’ EP!

Already 2x Platinum in Australia for sales of 140,000 units, the cut now sits atop iTunes USA looking down on every single release in the market today, shortly after peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100!

Flying the flag for ‘Urban’ at #7 today is Katy Perry‘s ‘Dark Horse‘, the ‘Prism‘ pulled cut featuring Juicy J! Enjoying a ‘Hot 100’ peak position of #17, the jam has now sold over 784,000 units in the US since its unveiling- doing so before its predecessor ‘Roar’ knocked on 4 million’s door and earned Quadruple Platinum status!

Three spots beneath the aforementioned ‘Roar’ and nine spots below Beyonce‘s ‘Drunk in Love’ is Lady GaGa‘s ‘Do What U Want’!

Enjoying an impressive chart run even without the aid of a supporting video, the R&B flavoured a number holds the #17 spot weeks after shifting 57,872 in South Korea and twirling its way even closer to sales of 500,000 in the US!

With 1 million units sold in less than a week, the global impact of Beyonce‘s self-titled new album see her rock many a ‘Year-End’ chart this week with sales that see her outperform the likes of Rihanna, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry and Cynthia Doll tribute act, Miley Cyrus.

As if that wasn’t enough to give her cause to rejoice, the aforementioned ‘Love’ now sits at #8 on iTunes USA as its YouTube views part ways with the 14 million mark and hop into bed with 15 million, boosting its chances of nabbing Hot 100 glory in the coming week!

Last, but certainly not least, comes ‘The Monster’ singer Rihanna! For, despite seeing her latest solo single ‘What Now‘ struggle to compete with the releases discussed above, she finds herself basking in Eminem’s commercial light with ‘Monster’ yet again today.


Well, with the cut now perched at #4 on iTunes USA, the number sees Rihanna hold at Top Ten spot on the chart- despite facing intense competition from Beyonce’s ‘Love‘, Perry’s ‘Horse’ and Lorde‘s ‘Royals.’

So, with the jam above holding court at #10 and Beyonce‘s ‘Mine’ fast becoming a threat at #22, will the coming days see Rihanna keep her Top 5 spot?


#NowPlaying: Karyn White – ‘Secret Rendezvous’…

  2. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    Why the hell is timber no.1? Smh. But other than that,congrats to all ladies! I’m happy that my queen is now set to slay the billboard hot 100 charts

  3. Brazilian Yoncé!!! December 22, 2013

    Omg the shade 🙁

  4. SoGone4Monica December 22, 2013

    Rihanna is the only one without her OWN chart position.

  5. Draggin4MrsCarter December 22, 2013

    Why is Rihanna here? Is TM her song? No it is not.

  6. CiciFinnaBeABride December 22, 2013

    Not Rihanna piggy backing off of Eminem again.

  7. KissesForKelly December 22, 2013

    Has anybody seen Ciara’s relevancy?

  8. Hivy December 22, 2013

    Congrats rihanna and Beyoncé.

  9. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    Now I’m gonna wait for Sybil and her long ass illiterate essays bragging about a song which isn’t even Rihanna’s,nor does it(Sybil) bother to know the story behind it

  10. BanjeeRiri December 22, 2013

    Beyonce supports domestic violence so I do not support her. Jay Z wants Rihanna to leave Chris but makes jokes about Ike beating up Queen Tina Turner so I can’t stand him or her.

  11. BanjeeRiri December 22, 2013

    I want the stupid Hive to tell me why this is funny to Beyonce and JayZ.

  12. BanjeeRiri December 22, 2013

    Beyonce is a fool to poke fun at her own idol’s fame.

  13. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    Your fave teamed up with eminem,who made the songs “Kim”,”Puke”,and “Bonnie and Clyde” all directing hate towards his ex-wife. Not to mention,in “Bonnie and Clyde” he raps about disposing off his dead wife(whom he killed) into the lake while his 1 year old daughter is watching. Why don’t you have a stadium of seats. You are in no position to talk or criticize @BanjeeRiri

  14. BanjeeRiri December 22, 2013

    I mean pain.

  15. Taylor Swift December 22, 2013

    Trashy Rihaana shouldn’t be included with her big alien forehead.

  16. QueenCeline December 22, 2013

    Beyonce fans are so stupid it hurts. Two wrongs don’t make a right, so even if Rihanna did collab with Eminem that still doesn’t explain why Jayonce were LAUGHING at Tina Turner being beaten up by her husband and having cake smothered in her face.

  17. Taylor Swift December 22, 2013

    Eminem is trash

  18. TeenageDreamer December 22, 2013

    Banjee has a point. That is pretty f***** up.

  19. AubreyOSlay December 22, 2013

    OH MY GOSH! That’s what he was talking about?

  20. Taylor Swift December 22, 2013

    The so called saint fake beyawnce did that to the Icon Tina Turner? I’ve lost my respect to her

  21. Its Gaga Ya Bish December 22, 2013

    Beyonce and Jay-Z got some ‘splainin to do.

  22. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    I want some of you idiots to tell me why you are in a position of criticizing jay z while eminem did some pretty f***** up things to Kim,this coming from a huge eminem fan. He caused her to slit her wrists for crying out loud,and he still didn’t give a f***

  23. CrazyKe$ha December 22, 2013

    What? I thought he saying Eat the cake Anime. What kind of monster makes fun of something like that? I’m so shocked right now.

  24. Taylor Swift December 22, 2013

    Still eminem supports bullying he’s also not perfect.

  25. CrazyKe$ha December 22, 2013

    BeyHive Minaj, I’m not an Eminem fan though.

  26. Hivy December 22, 2013

    @BEYHIVE_MINAJ This back n forth with the navy must be tiring. Just leave them alone. They cannot drag Beyoncé so they must bring up old things. Try to stay on topic. Don’t let what they say bother you cause at the end of the day Beyoncé is the one that has them pressed and mad and she out there making her money and promoting her album.

  27. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    And for crying out loud,IT’S A SCENE IN A FILM

  28. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @Hivy the navy has reached new levels of annoyance it’s actually irritating. How are you gonna criticize jay z for referencing a. F****** FILM when you stan for rihanna who teamed up with eminem,the same person who caused hell on earth to his ex-wife. I get that she cheated on eminem and did some f***** up things to him,but the guy made the song Kim FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. It’s number 2 on the most scary songs list if you google it

  29. Hivy December 22, 2013

    I know SOME of the Navy can be over the top but regardless of what any hive member or navy member im not gonna stop liking rihanna and beyonce. They should be trying to stay on topic instead of talking the worse about an artist on a stupid blog.

  30. Taylor Swift December 22, 2013

    Jay Z did what? Lmaoooo

  31. Lana Del Bey December 22, 2013

    This was so close being an unbiased post until you mentioned rihanna and beyonce’s name more than once. glad to see bey doing good on the singles chart, now I just need XO to hit #1 on the Hot 100

  32. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    The navy on TGJ is really annoying,but I’m always going to support rihanna. I liked her before I came on this blog,a few raggedy stans won’t make me hate her

  33. Banjeebeybey December 22, 2013

    “EAT THE CAKE ANNA MAE” means eat his ASS. Stop reaching idiots!

  34. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @BanjeeBeyBey school these h***

  35. Taylor Swift December 22, 2013

    Eminem used to Bully Pop girls .. Britnety , Xtina etc so he’s no saint that guy is worse. I don’t think he has a heart

  36. Lana Del Bey December 22, 2013

    Jay-Z has been whack for years now, he claws and scrapes for fresh ideas but fails, beyonce probably didn’t even take in what he was saying, she blind in love. that scene upset me and jay shouldn’t of used the reference

  37. Lana Del Bey December 22, 2013

    I also see the illuminati have accepted Kesha’s request (die young video) and put her atop the charts

  38. banjeebeybey December 22, 2013

    Stfu @lanadelbey you’re drunk!

  39. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @Taylor Swift go listen to Like Toy Soldiers,MockingBird,Hailie’s Song,When I’m Gone,Headlights,You’re Never Over,Space Bound and tell me he has no heart. His music actually has meaning

  40. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @Lanadelbey the bish is desperate. We all know she did that die young video for at least the slightest attention

  41. Yolanda Adams stan December 22, 2013

    Rihanna and Keisha are devil worshippers. They must give their hearts back to God! Beyonce is the angel queen of Heaven and the mistress of the universe.

  42. Taylor Swift December 22, 2013

    Just like how “Starship, Stupid H**, Pound The Alarm, Superbass” have all deep meanings.

  43. Stephy Tha Lambily December 22, 2013

    EMINEMS song FEATURING Rihanna should not have been number 1…

    The song is miles behind thier master piece “Love The Way You Lie”.

    The Monster is HORRIBLE. Eminems rapping is boring & all Rihanna is doing is singing a stupid 1st grader hook THAT SHE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH…

    And the song becomes her 13th number 1 hit & ties with F****** MICHAEL JACKSON.

    Something aint right about this non singing bajan girl having more number 1 hits than STEVIE WONDER MICHAEL JACKSON MADONNA & WHITNEY HOUSTON…

    Why the f*** does MJ only has 13 number 1 hits anyways. This should be real number 1 hits for MJ

    1.) Dont Stop Till You Get Enough
    2.) Rock With You
    3.) Billie Jean
    4.) Beat It
    5.) Thriller
    6.) We Are The World
    7.) Bad
    8.) I Just Cant Stop Loving You
    9.) Smooth Criminal
    10.) Dirty Diana
    11.) Man In The Mirror
    12.) The Way You Make Me Feel
    13.) Black Or White
    14.) Remember The Time
    15.) Scream
    16.) You Are Not Alone
    17.) Earth Song
    18.) You Rock My World

    Also As A Child (WHITHOUT JACKSON 5)

    1.) Whos Loving You
    2.) I Wanna Be Where You Are
    3.) With A Childs Heart
    4.) Ben
    5.) Aint No Sunshine
    6.) Rocky Robin


    Rihanna could never have quality songs like that in her collection.

    I still like Rihanna tho.

  44. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    Freedom,Marilyn Monroe,Dear Old Nicki,Moment 4 Life,Here I Am,I’m The Best,etc. You tried it

  45. Mark111 December 22, 2013

    Rihanna is always on the haters mind. “Why Rihanna on here?” ” it’s not even her song.” Yet they skip over the song Kesha is FEATURED on. #DumbHoes #SillyFags

    side note, what happened to Kesha’s album. I recall it came out around the same time as Unapologetic.

  46. Stephanie the lambily December 22, 2013


  47. Stephy Tha Lambily December 22, 2013

    Excuse me, my name is Stephon Maurice Jackson not Stephanie! I am not a female. Thank you very much…

    @ THAT TROLL “Stephanie The Lambily”

  48. MC!! December 22, 2013

    umm that scene in the movie is what really happened in real life!!! its actually in the book also!! these dumb ass beyonce stans!! I bet if beyonce pushed blue off a cliff yall be like yes kill that b****!! Jay z was a woman beater and drug dealer and eminem was a woman beater!! none are innocent sooo..but people still buying their s*** regardless clearly still think XO deserves better success than drunk in love

  49. Taylor Swift December 22, 2013

    Freedom is personal ?
    Lmao *DEAD* 🙁
    Onigga is generic just like Eminem

  50. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    Yes,because it talks about her rise to fame and being in the spotlight. She doesn’t do things to please the critics anymore and is comfortable with herself,thus finding freedom. And I can’t at a Taylor swift fan calling eminem,one of the greatest lyricists ever generic. At least eminem has songs which have impacted music and will be remembered forever. Taylor? None

  51. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 22, 2013

    @MC Yes,I know it’s a biopic on Tina turner’s life,based on her book,”I,Tina.” And that was the same scene which majority of a public found humorous(me excluded) so kindly Stfu

  52. LTM December 22, 2013

    Dark Horse is unstoppable. Since the day of its release it has been charting, even when it was a promo single. I’m glad Capital Records is listening to the people and making it a single. Unconditionally is one of my favorites off the album but it never got a chance between being released on iTunes the same day as the full album and Roar still dominating. Also glad to see Rihanna doing well with The Monster still. Its funny to me how the same people to discredit the song because she’s the feature artist are the same ones who count their favs featured hits as one of theirs. As

  53. BeyRihStan December 22, 2013

    Stephy have you seen this….???

  54. Robin December 22, 2013

    Guy’s.. You are forgetting Christina Aguilera & A great big world :

    Say Something being number 1 or 2 on Itunes for weeks !!!

    Last week they sold 230.000 !!! Selling more then 1 million copies in 4 a 5 weeks time…!!!!

    If it was not for the stupid ” Streaming ” it would have been number 1 on billboard 2 times already ! 🙂

  55. FAF December 22, 2013

    Poor kelly hoeland 5 STANS saw the attention Ci got with engagement and begged a n***a on skype 😆







  56. FAF December 22, 2013

  59. Super Cisus December 22, 2013

    Yessss FAF drag that horse b**** her stans are too cocky for nothing. That b**** is the most lazy bum in the music industry that’s why she stay flopping her only relevance is the red carpets kiii

  60. Anti-Garbage Singing Voices December 22, 2013

    BUT “MONSTER” isn’t a Rihanna song,it is a Eminem song ft Rihanna and nothing more.

  61. FutureCIARA December 22, 2013


  62. Navy Commander December 22, 2013

    I just watched the xtina and Gaga performance and it slayssss Christina Slayed me the most tho.

    Why is timber #1 I really don’t undertand. That’s the most generic unoriginal pop song this year, right behind roar of course.
