Hey y’all! So here are this week’s HitPredictor Chart leaders. You guys make this happen every week by your dedication to voting and here is proof that we actually use the results :)
Here they are:
Black Eyed Peas kicked off the new year with their album The Beginning, performed during the halftime show at Super Bowl XLV, and this week the 2nd single from that album “Just Can’t Get Enough”, is a Mainstream Top 40 HitPredictor.
Upon the release of her Teenage Dream album, Katy Perry said “The second record is really important to me because I think it shows whether I’m meant to do this, or I got lucky.” Katy Perry is certainly meant to do this and it shows on her 4th track “E.T.” as she featured Kanye West. Usher continues the Danceable R&B sound heard on his last 2 hits with a Red One remix of “More”, taken from the deluxe edition of his Raymond v. Raymond album. Both songs are HitPredictors at Rhythmic this week.
Nicki Minaj was nominated for a Grammy, and while she didn’t win with “Did It On’Em”, the 4th single from her Pink Friday album, it is an Urban HitPredictor this week. Miguel Jontel Pimentel, aka Miguel, wanted a great shot at having a hit so he launched his “Sure Thing” track as the 2nd single from his album All I Want Is You.
Pop Rock band Parachute hails from Charlottesville, Virginia. They have toured with some of Pop’s biggest artists, including opening for Kelly Clarkson for most of her last concert tour. Their sophomore album The Way It Was, is due out in April but the lead track “Something To Believe In” is a Hot AC HitPredictor this week.
“Somewhere With You”, from The Earl of East Tennessee, Kenny Chesney was a No. 1 country song for several weeks, and now it’s a Mainstream AC HitPredictor.
Chris Young’s new single “Tomorrow” is about a couples reluctance to go their separate ways despite knowing that their relationship is broken beyond repair. His album Neon is due out soon but “Tomorrow” is a Country HitPredictor this week.
“Rope,” the first single from Foo Fighters forthcoming album Wasting Light, got its debut at the NME Awards Big Gig show in London’s Webley Stadium Saturday night, and it’s an Alternative and Active Rock HitPredictor this week.
Sydney Australia’s Sick Puppies rose to prominence in 2006 when their song “All the Same” was uploaded along with a video on YouTube. After success in Australia they have reached worldwide acclaim with their third album Tri-Polar, and the 4th hit from it, “Riptide” is an Active Rock HitPredictor this week.
