Welcome to the 3rd installment of the Weekly! We’re getting close to a whole month! I hope all of you starting your school holidays are enjoying the time off, and for those still working, salvation is here! You have a lovely article prepared with love and rainbows right here! I myself have the week off, so I’ve got loads of spare time to be writing some wonderful news! If you might be confused about the image at the top, we have two! This week, the Relax Room, featuring some Graphics Staff to the left! Keep working on some ideas you want in the Weekly, because it’s getting a little bit slow having the same things every week With that subtle reminder, we shall start the charts! Firstly, different to usual, we will start with the Official UK Top 100:
1.) Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye ft. Kimbra
2.) Titanium – David Guetta ft. Sia
3.) T.H.E (The Hardest Ever) – Will I Am ft. Mick Jagger & Jennifer Lopez
4.) Domino – Jessie J
5.) Alone Again – Alyssa Reid ft. Jump Smokers
6.) Wild Ones – Flo Rida ft. Sia
7.) Twilight – Cover Drive
8.) Mama Do The Hump – Rizzle Kicks
9.) Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – Kelly Clarkson
10.) Born To Die – Lana Del Ray
David Guetta and Sia have been bumped off #1 by an Australian-Belgian international newcomer called Gotye (pronounce go-tee-ay, which I certainly didn’t know!) who has had little success for nearly a decade outside of his countries. #3, ‘The Hardest Ever‘ from worldwide names Will I Am, Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo for those who don’t know of her) and Mick Jagger was the highest climber, a complete debut just 2 from the top. The Christmas UK #1, ‘Wherever You Are‘ by Gareth Malone & the Military Wives dropped 30, nearly off the chart to spot 95. For the past two weeks, ‘Iris’ by Goo Goo Dolls had been the longest entry at 230~ weeks, but ‘Chasing Cars‘ by Snow Patrol has re-entered and snatched it away, nearly a full year ahead at 283 weeks.

The second chart for this week will be the Billboard Hot 100 Singles:
1.) Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – Kelly Clarkson (airplay gainer)
2.) Set Fire To The Rain – Adele
3.) Good Feeling – Flo Rida
4.) We Found Love – Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris
5.) Turn Me On – David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj
6.) Domino – Jessie J
7.) Rack City – Tyga
8.) Young, Wild & Free – Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa ft. Bruno Mars
9.) Sexy And I Know It – LMFAO
10.) It Will Rain – Bruno Mars
Although Kelly Clarkson has done well in the US, it is less spectacular in the UK, as the Official Charts Company only works with sales, not radio play. This suggests that disc jockeys in the US favour this song more than the public. Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep‘ is still the distance runner with 57 weeks, safely over a year. The trip to the graveyard was #81, ‘The Hardest Ever‘, number 3 in the UK. This slipped down 25 this week. ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’‘ by Madonna ft. Nicki Minaj & M.I.A. was a relatively low high riser, debuting at #13. 5 more Glee tracks made their mark on the chart this week, identical to last week. Their positions were #26, #56, #64, #78 and #80. You can find all of these, as well as all the other songs this week by visiting THIS link!
Thirdly we will look at the ARIA Singles Chart:
1.) Wild Ones – Flo Rida ft. Sia
2.) Hey Hey Hey – Laurent Wery ft. SwiftKid
3.) Boys Like You – 360 ft. Gossling
4.) Lonely Boy – The Black Keys
5.) Paradise – Coldplay
6.) Turn Me On – David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj
7.) I Love It – Hilltop Hoods ft. Sia
8.) Summer Paradise – Simple Plan
9.) Take Care – Drake ft. Rihanna
10.) Set It Off – Timomatic
‘Party Rock Anthem‘ released last year by LMFAO ft. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock has 50 weeks on the ARIA chart, satisfyingly close to a year, 18 weeks ahead of ‘Moves Like Jagger’ by Maroon 5 ft. Christina Aguilera. #13, ‘Throw Your Hands Up‘ jumped 15 places from 28, a welcome rise for Qwote ft. Pitbull. However, Grouplove felt the deepest drop of 13 spots for ‘Tongue Tied‘ resting on #46 this week. The ARIA website is the least helpful, organising the chart in a very compact table, even abbreviating different headings, yet you can find all of the Top 50 HERE!
The final chart this week will be the Billboard Top 200 Albums:
1.) 21 – Adele
2.) Born To Die – Lana Del Ray
3.) Old Ideas – Leonard Cohen
4.) 2012 Grammy Nominees – Various Artists
5.) Kidsz Bop 21 – Kidz Bop Kids
6.) Take Care – Drake
7.) Emotional Traffic – Tim McGraw
8.) God, Love & Romance – Fred Hammond
9.) Sorry For Party Rocking – LMFAO
10.) Talk That Talk – Rihanna
Pink Floyd continue their extremely long run of 797 weeks with ‘Dark Side Of The Moon‘, but dropped to #190, nearly all they way off the chart. ‘Greatest Hits’ by Guns N’ Roses is exactly 11 years behind at 225 weeks. #2 ‘Born to Die‘ and #3 ‘Old Ideas‘ were both new entries, automatically guaranteeing them the top climbs, as well as #8. ‘The Lion’s Roar‘ by First Aid kit fell 105 places to #170 for the biggest drop. This final chart can be seen with THIS link!
Adele has stormed all charts in the West, and last night picked up an amazing 6 awards at the Grammy’s!
This week, we will not have a Special Artist Feature, but instead we will look at the main Grammy award winners:
Record of the Year: Rolling In The Deep – Adele
Album of the Year: 21 – Adele
Song of the Year: Rolling In The Deep – Adele
Best New Artist: Bon Iver
Producer of the Year: Paul Epworth
Best Short Form Music Video (for usual songs, approximately 3:30 in length): Rolling In The Deep – Adele
Adele was by far the clean-up act, winning all 6 awards she was nominated for! Congratulations! The death of Whitney Houston so close to the event prompted American Idol contestant (who came 3rd in her series) Jennifer Hudson to sing Houston’s biggest hit ‘I Will Always Love You’ to end the ceremony.
What do you think? Did your favourite hit #1? Or was it this week’s biggest faller? Were you happy with the Grammy winners, all can be found HERE! Or did Adele win too many awards (ask Jurv, and he’ll tell you she didn’t win enough!)? Leave your thoughts below!
