THO 100 Update for week ending November 14, 2009

Last week it was expected, and written here, that Britney Spears would take over the #1 position on the THO 100 with her latest single, "3." But after all the data was compiled, the hottest song online by our measure is "Bad Romance" by Lady GaGa. It catapults from #11 to #1 in only its fourth week on the chart and barely beats out Spears' hit. "Bad Romance" caps an incredible year for Lady GaGa, who spent time at #1 in January and February with "Just Dance" followed by time at #1 in April and May with "Poker Face." Given that there are only six chart weeks left in 2009, and the fast rise of "Bad Romance," it could still be the #1 song when the calendar turns. Either way, Lady GaGa has a good chance of topping our list of the Top Artists of 2009, which is compiled from all 2009 chart data... coming soon.

THO 100 Update for week ending November 7, 2009

UK sensation Cheryl Cole keeps her post atop the THO 100 this week with "Fight For This Love." Cole barely holds off Britney Spears, whose latest single "3" appears poised to take over the #1 position next week. "3" moves from #5 to #2 this week. Other gainers inside the top 10 are Leona Lewis, Black Eyed Peas, and Owl City. This week marks the 52nd chart week (one entire year) for "Use Somebody" by Kings Of Leon. The song first appeared on the November 15, 2008 THO 100 and hasn't left since. It joins a short list of only 16 other songs to spend 52 weeks on the chart. Despite its longetivity, "Use Somebody" has not cracked the top 10, peaking at #11. Currently at #81, it has a shot at remaining on the chart beyond this week. Only 10 songs have spent more than 52 weeks on the chart. The record is 85 weeks by Alanis Morissette's "You Learn."
