THO 100 Update for week ending May 23, 2009

There is a full slate of new entries on this week's THO 100, and most of them are from international stars outside the U.S. One reason for this is the recent Eurovision competition from which several hit songs have come. Another reason is the relative stagnation on U.S. radio stations at the moment. Jade Ewen's Eurovision-winning song "It's My Time" is the highest debut on the chart at #63. At the top, it is a three-way battle for #1 between Lady GaGa, Britney Spears, and The Black Eyed Peas. It is anyone's guess who will be at #1 after the dust settles next week.

THO 100 Update for the week ending May 16, 2009

Make it six weeks in a row at #1 for Lady GaGa's "Poker Face." But the end of its run is near, as Britney Spears closes the gap at #2 with "If U Seek Amy." Also closing in fast is "Boom Boom Pow," the latest single from The Black Eyed Peas. This week it moves from #9 to #4 and is the largest point gainer on the chart. The Peas have never had a THO #1 before. Their highest-charting singles stalled at #3: 2003's "Where Is The Love" and 2005's "My Humps." Enjoy the chart this week!

THO 100 Update for week ending May 9, 2009

The same song is both the largest point gainer and the largest chart mover on the latest THO 100 chart. It is Green Day's "Know Your Enemy" from their upcoming album "21st Century Breakdown." It is their 24th chart entry on the THO 100 and looks to possibly become their fourth #1 hit. But for now that distinction still belongs to Lady GaGa and her "Poker Face." The Black Eyed Peas and Girls Aloud both enter the top 10 with their latest singles, plus there are 10 new entries on the new chart.

THO 100 Update for week ending May 2, 2009

Earlier this year Lady GaGa's "Just Dance" (featuring Colby O'Donis) spent four weeks atop the THO 100. But now it is GaGa's "Poker Face" spending a fourth week at #1, easily holding off Kelly Clarkson (#2) and Beyonce (#3). The next new number one song may very well come from another artist with #1 experience. Late last year Pink was #1 for six weeks with "So What," the lead single from her Funhouse album. This week "Please Don't Leave Me" creeps into the top 10 and appears destined to climb even higher. Pink has now had 15 top 10 hits in her career, starting with "Most Girls" in 2000 which went to #1. Enjoy the chart this week!
