Good evening (or earlier in the day, if you’re reading then: we don’t discriminate against times at Habbox!) and welcome to the SIXTH week of the Music Mash-Up! I apologize deeply for the fact it is so late on Wednesday, when it is usually posted this time on Tuesdays. I’ve been really busy in real life sorting things out, but by next week you’ll get a fuller, bigger and better Mash-Up! I do warn you that this week’s issue might not be to everyone’s tastes (especially as I don’t really like the #1sxD)
We’ll start with my hometown chart, the Official UK Top 100 Singles:
1.) Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye ft. Kimbra
2.) Next To Me – EmeliSande
3.) Hot Right Now – DJ Fresh ft. Rita Ora
4.) Wild Ones – Flo Rida ft. Sia
5.) Titanium – David Guetta ft. Sia
6.) Domino – Jessie J
7.) Starships – Nicki Minaj
8.) Turn Me On – David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj
9.) Ass Back Home – Gym Class Heroes ft. Neon Hitch
10.) T.H.E (The Hardest Ever) – Will I Am ft. Mick Jagger & Jennifer Lopez
Nearly all of the top 5 swapped around this week, with 3 and 1 trading places, as well as 4 and 5.
#2 ‘Next To Me’ held steady before the top. Many, many, many singles came to reenter after falling
quite low. The furthest of these jumps came from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds,
who rose 132 places with ‘AKA What A Life‘. Aloe Blacc was behind this with 121 places.
‘Bitter Sweet Symphony‘ by Verve re-entered for its 141st week, more than everyone else.
However, Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx was 11 weeks behind, not long in the music business.
The biggest drop of 52 was awarded to dead last #100 ‘Skinny Love‘ by Birdy. 3 fewer
places of 49 came to Whitney Houston with ‘One Moment In Time’.
Next appearing is the Billboard Hot 100:
1.) Part Of Me – Katy Perry
2.) Set Fire To The Rain – Adele
3.) I Will Always Love You – Whitney Houston
4.) Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – Kelly Clarkson
5.) Rolling In The Deep – Adele
6.) We Are Young – fun. ft. Janelle Monae
7.) Someone Like You – Adele
8.) We Found Love – Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris
9.) Starships – Nicki Minaj
10.) Turn Up The Music – Chris Brown
It really has switched up this week, with no-one keeping the same position in the top 10 (except #2 from Adele).
#5 ‘Rolling In The Deep’ is still rising, moving up 12 in week 59.
‘Give Me All Your Lovin‘‘, last week’s #10 dropped 29 for the widest gap, which is surprisingly small for a chart of such size. #1 itself was a debut for Katy Perry, the first music released in some time. #9 and #10 also debuted this week.
Before we see the final chart, here is the Billboard Top 200 chart for albums:
1.) 21 – Adele
2.) Whitney: The Greatest Hits – Whitney Houston
3.) NOW 41 – Various Artists
4.) 19 – Adele
5.) 2012 Grammy Nominees – Various Artists
6.) A Different Kind Of Truth – Van Halen
7.) Kisses On The Bottom – Paul McCartney
8.) Doo-WOps & Hooligans – Bruno Mars
9.) Own The Night – Lady Antebellum
10.) Barton Hollow – The Civil Wars
In album charts, often they compile assorted songs together, to obtain more sales. Therefore, as no-one in particular created the album, it is listed as ‘Various Artists’. In case you were wondering, there is no singer called Various Artists who always does very well in the charts ^^!
The highest rise was a debut at #67 ‘As The Crow Flies (EP)‘ by Amos Lee, followed by ‘Live In Miami’ by Hillsong United at #71. Another week is on the tally for Guns N’ Roses with ‘Greatest Hits‘ to total 227, 17 ahead of ‘Legend: The Best Of Bob Marley’ by (no points for guessing) Bob Marley And The Wailers.
There were much bigger dips in the Top 200, with #181 ‘So Proud‘ by Brian Courtney falling 137 places from #44. Madonna’s ‘Celebration’ also slipped 105 to #157.
The final chart of the week is the ARIA Australian Top 50:
1.) Wild Ones – Flo Rida ft. Sia
2.) Ass Back Home – Gym Class Heroes ft. Neon Hitch
3.) Boys Like You – 360 ft. Gossling
4.) Throw Your Hands Up – Qwote ft. Pitbull
5.) Part Of Me – Katy Perry
6.) Turn Up The Music – Chris Brown
7.) Fight For You – Jason Derulo
8.) Turn Me On – David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj
9.) Hey Hey Hey – Laurent Wery ft. SwiftKid
10.) Paradise – Coldplay
#7 rose 20 places from #27 to become the highest riser, a likely welcome achievement for Jason Derulo (if he was ever to notice his performance in Australia). The late Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You‘ was knocked down 16 spots to end this week on #24, the biggest dip. Adele holds the top and second positions for the longest times, with 46 weeks for ‘Rolling In The Deep‘ at #32 and 45 weeks for ‘Someone Like You‘ at #46.
That’s the end of the charts this week, and unfortunately, no artist will be mentioned for the Special Artist Feature. I just don’t feel that anyone in the music business is in the position to receive such an award. Heck, not even Michael Jackson is good enough to win today. It’s a terrifyingly hard accolade to earn as it is a simply spectacular privilege. Plus, I don’t believe many people are particularly interested in the life of a singing star, so when it returns next week, I hope to make it much less bulky!
But what did you think? Did your favourite artist get the #1 spot? Or did they fall out of the top 10? Or the whole chart completely? Remember you can check the Top 200 Albums HERE, Hot 100 HERE, ARIA Top 50 HERE and Official UK Top 100 HERE! Please tell me your thoughts below! Your ideas can appear in next week’s edition if you let me know! What good is an idea still stuck in your head?!
