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?
