THO 100 Update for week ending July 25, 2009

The biggest debut this week comes from probably the smallest performer on the chart. She is definitely not known for her height, but Shakira packs one of the biggest voices, especially on this weeks' THO 100. Her latest single, "She Wolf," debuts at #52, easily in front of other debuts by Chicane, The Arctic Monkeys, Colbie Caillat, All-American Rejects, and Sugababes.

At the top of the chart, David Guetta holds on for another week at #1 with "When Love Takes Over" (featuring Kelly Rowland). Although we don't know exactly what will happen, most bets are on Jordin Sparks' "Battlefield" or the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" becoming the new #1 song. "Feeling" is the charts' largest point gainer this week.

THO 100 Update for the week ending July 18, 2008

This week on the THO 100, David Guetta holds off all challengers to retain the #1 position. "When Love Takes Over" (featuring Kelly Rowland) will spend its 3rd week atop the chart. One of the challengers is UK pop sensation La Roux, with their single "Bulletproof." Music fans don't seem to mind singer Elly Jackson's crazy hair, as the song moves from #5 to #4 and has a serious shot at reaching #1 next week. At least three other songs are capable of being #1 in the coming weeks, including Jordin Sparks' "Battlefield," Lady GaGa's "Paparazzi," and Linkin Park's "New Divide." Enjoy the chart this week!

THO 100 Update for the week ending July 11, 2009

This week on the THO 100, David Guetta holds on to the top position with "When Love Takes Over" (featuring Kelly Rowland). The song has already peaked in Europe, but is still gaining airplay in the United States. The most likely contenders to take over #1 in the coming weeks: Jordin Sparks, Linkin Park, and The Black Eyed Peas. Ciara (pictured) has the highest debut on the new chart, coming in at #65 with "Work." If not for Ciara's new hit, the highest debut would have been "Man In The Mirror" by Michael Jackson. A lot of personal chart-makers have been charting Michael Jackson songs, and "Man" is the most popular. "Billie Jean" and "Thriller" just missed making the chart as well.

THO's Top Songs of All-Time

The Top Hits Online chart began publishing weekly charts in 1993. The chart has always been based on personal charts published on the internet, and it always will be. The hits that appear on the chart are often different than what you might see on the US Billboard charts, and often the THO 100 has many international hits that receive no airplay in the US. We are proud to publish our list of top songs since that first THO chart in '93. It is led by Alanis Morissette's "You Learn," which spent a remarkable 85 weeks on the chart. Morissette has two songs in the top 5, the other being "Head Over Feet." The list is also scattered with several hits from Madonna and Mariah Carey, the two most successful artists of the era. The only current hit on the list is Lady GaGa's "Poker Face," at #25.

THO 100 Update for the week ending July 4, 2008

It's been a long time since a dance track has reached #1 on the THO 100, but this week David Guetta accomplishes that feat with "When Love Takes Over." It is Guetta's first #1 but is the second #1 for the featured artist, Kelly Rowland. In 2002 she was also the featured artist on Nelly's #1 song "Dilemma." The other big milestone on the chart this week is Lady GaGa holding down three positions inside the top 10. "Paparazzi" moves up to #7 while "Poker Face" and "LoveGame" drop to numbers 9 and 10, respectively. This hasn't happened since 1995 when Madonna had three songs inside the top 10 for two consecutive weeks: "You'll See," "I Want You," and "One More Chance."
