This will not be a predictable year though. Look at all the artists coming out now that we never thought would be contenders. (The Wanted, Fun, 1D, Rita, Gotye, even Calvin) There's going to be many more new artists emerging this year with immediate success, and that's the most detail we can get into until they actually come out.
Congratulations to Rihanna on earning her Icon Award!
Starships for sure
Where Have You Been and maybe Talk That Talk if the video is cool and it picks up on radio
probably a Madonna song if she's lucky
i would like to say Let's Go by Calvin Harris if it gets fully released in the summer cuz the song is killer, but who knows what's happening with that
Chris Brown could get one if he has something better than Turn Up the Music on the new album
Ive just been really happy so far this year that not a single song for 2012 has had more than three weeks at #1 .. fun. might break that but still I love seeing this happen. Hopefully Alot more artists will hit #1 this year
i have a feeling it will pull a 2010 and have 17 #1's again
i think possible #1's could be Starships, Somebody That I Used To Know, Rumor Has It, Wild Ones, Glad You Came, Dressin' Up, and maybe Call Me Maybe and What Makes You Beautiful can top if they pick up more. I know We Are Young will get a couple more weeks atop the Hot 100 and Part Of Me may hit the summit again if the music video, Sims3 commerical, airplay increase, and performances have a large impact on sales
I Kissed A Girl #1 (7 consecutive weeks) California Gurls #1 (6 consecutive weeks) Teenage Dream #1 (2 consecutive weeks) Firework #1 (4 non-consecutive weeks) E.T. #1 (5 non-consecutive weeks) Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) #1 (2 consecutive weeks) Part Of Me #1 (1 week) Roar #1 (2 consecutive weeks)
