Here are the updated HitPredictor Charts for this week: Y’all did pretty well with predicting the Grammy winners so let’s see how good you are at predicting the hits this week.
First up, Lady Gaga. Her song “Born This Way” got more radio airplay than any other track in recent times, with many Top 40s stations playing the song at the top of every hour when it was released last Friday. She is a Mainstream Top 40 HitPredictor this week.
Taio Cruz’s strategy of taking what was originally designed to be a pop track featuring Aussie singing star Kylie Minogue, and instead featuring Hip-Hop star Travie McCoy paid off this week, as “Higher” is now a HitPredictor at Rhythmic.
Jennifer Hudson is having a great 2011. She looks fantastic as a new Weight Watchers spokesperson, and after losing 56 pounds on the diet, “Where Are You At”, the first single from her brand new album I Remember Me, is an Urban HitPredictor this week.
Cee-lo’s “F**K You, Forget You” got a whole new life after Gwyneth Paltrow sang it late last Fall on Glee and again at the 2011 Grammys where it was nominated for multiple Grammy awards. It’s a Hot AC HitPredictor this week.
Taylor Swift’s “Back To December” is reportedly about her breakup with Taylor Lautner from Twilight, back in 2009. The hit from her album Speak Now is now a HitPredictor at Mainstream AC this week.
Ronnie Dunn, formerly of the Country duo Brooks & Dunn, who have sold over 30 million records, had 26 #1 singles, and are one of the most consistently successful acts on the concert circuit. They were so big they even opened for the Rolling Stones in 2006. In 2009, they announced that they would disband in 2010. This week Ronnie’s solo hit “Blood Red” is this week’s sole HitPredictor at Country.
“Riptide” is the fourth single from Australia’s Sick Puppies third album Tri-Polar, released in 2009. It’s an Alternative HitPredictor this week.
