THO 100 Update for the week ending April 26, 2008

This week on the THO 100, Jordin Sparks' duet with Chris Brown, "No Air," accomplishes something her lead single "Tattoo" could not do: reach the top 10. "No Air" moves from #15 to #8 on the new chart. "Tattoo" peaked at #11 last month. Also on the chart this week, Madonna's "4 Minutes" (featuring Justin Timberlake) widens its lead at #1 over fellow divas Mariah Carey and Britney Spears. This song's stay at the top could be a long one...

Linkin Park Adds to Their Hit List

This week on the THO 100, one of the new entries is "Given Up" by Linkin Park. It marks the 14th chart hit for Linkin, and follows the huge success of their previous single "Shadow Of The Day." The new chart entry moves them up to a modest 53rd on the all-time list of bands/artists with the most charted songs. They have had six top 5 hits, but have never reached #1. "What I've Done" reached #2 in 2007 and "In The End" spent a remarkable 52 weeks on the chart, which is tied for 10th all-time. I'm sure we'll hear more from this great band, but for now I hope you'll vote in our Best of Linkin Park poll:

THO 100 Update for week ending April 19, 2008

In only its fifth week on the chart, Madonna's "4 Minutes" (featuring Justin Timberlake) takes over the top spot on the THO 100. It is Madonna's 18th chart-topper, by far the most of any artist and double the next-closest artist (Mariah Carey with nine). Although he is a featured artist, it is Justin Timberlake's second #1 hit, following "Cry Me A River" in 2002. He also had two #1 hits as a member of 'N Sync. "4 Minutes" displaces OneRepublic's "Stop And Stare," which spent five weeks at the top.

THO 100 Update for the week ending April 12, 2008

We are somewhat surprised, but OneRepublic was able to hang on for one more week at #1 on the THO 100 with their smash "Stop And Stare." It barely tops Madonna's "4 Minutes" (featuring Justin Timberlake), which we expect to be next week's top song. But a darkhorse has emerged in all of this: Chris Brown's "With You." The song has built momentum slowly and is currently the most-played song on U.S. radio stations. It sits at #3 for a third consecutive week but is definitely in contention for #1 next week if the momentum continues. Hope you enjoy the chart this week!

Top Songs of 1983

It is easy to see why our 1983 polls and chart are the most popular of the decade. The year was filled with huge hits. Michael Jackson's "Beat It" and "Billie Jean," plus hits by The Police, Duran Duran, and Men At Work are just a few. We will soon be publishing our ranked list of the top songs of the entire decade, and the #1 song could very well be from 1983. The only question is which huge hit it will be.

THO 100 Update for the week ending April 5, 2008

While OneRepublic spends a fourth week atop the THO 100, there are at least three new songs that will challenge for the top position very soon. The first is Madonna with her latest "4 Minutes" (featuring Justin Timberlake). This week the song is the largest point gainer for the second time. The largest chart move this week belongs to Estelle with "American Boy" (featuring Kanye West), who moves up 40 positions after claiming the #1 position on the U.K. national chart. The third threat is Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body," which remains at #5 this week but is still gaining fast. We think there will be a new #1 next week, but the data will dictate if that is true. Stay tuned.

Janet Jackson Continues Chart Success

Janet Jackson first hit the pop charts when she was only 16 years old - a minor hit called "Young Love" in 1982. Since then Janet has charted more than 50 different songs and has collaborated with an all-star list of musicians, including Luther Vandross, Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Shaggy, Joni Mitchell, Nelly, Michael Jackson, and many more. This week Jackson pulls off a rare feat as two songs simultaneously debut on the THO 100: "Rock With U" and "Luv." Both songs recently began receiving radio airplay in different formats and in different countries. In honor of all her accomplishments we created a poll for music fans to select the best Janet Jackson songs of her career. The poll includes all of her major hits: from "What Have You Done For Me Lately" to "Feedback."
