Gwen Stefani 'Hollaback Girl' single cover

It seems that no one can take down 50 Cent’s ‘Candy Shop’ again this week on Billboard’s Hot 100 list. The closest pop stars with major hits are with a major jump for ‘Hollaback Girl’ , from 37-10 on the Billboard Hot 100. Gwen also takes the number 11 spot with the major hit ‘Rich Girl’ featuring Eve. Fantasia is still holding strong at number 26 with ‘Truth Is’, wheras Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Breakaway’ continues to fall to number 28 this week. Despite the release of the highly anticipated ‘Emancipation of Mimi’ this week, Mariah Carey’s ‘It’s like that’ drops to number 36 from 30 from last week.

    I can’t hate on 50 at all he is doing his thing expecially when you look at what the charts are saying. The rest of the artists you mentioned are doing good too you know its good to be on the charts at all. If I was an artist I would be glad if I was number 1 or 100 or any number in between. Seriously I think the charts do let you know who is at the top of their game right now at the moment but then again there are a lot of artists that are not even on the charts that a lot of people like and listen to. We say power is in numbers and sales represent those numbers but what I question about the whole process is what numbers. It would be better if they made these numbers public that they choose from. All we have is their word and what they tell us.

    Billboard Hot 100 was always a combination of sales and airplay. But in the last few years single sales have become insignificant, most “singles” aren’t even released for sale at all, so for all practical purposes the Hot 100 is now a radio airplay chart. It’d be nice if there were radio stations that played whatever songs were popular, but they stopped doing that decades ago. They play whatever song’s popular (or paid for) THAT FITS THEIR FORMAT. Usually a very narrow format. A Shania Twain song might have as many fans as an Usher song, but I think few U.S. radio stations would play them both. If an artist puts out a song that doesn’t meet any station’s narrow criteria, it won’t get airplay and not make the chart at all, even if a lot of people would like it if they had the chance to hear it.

    I can’t believe Fantasia is even on the charts. I’ve never heard any of her songs. Well no I saw her attempt to sing on American Idol. Is her song good at least?
