One Direction gets a 3rd song to hit #1. Tell Me a Lie has hit #1 5 times, and Moments hit #1 back in Week 3. What Makes You Beautiful would have been a multi-week #1 back earlier this year before this chart existed.
Frank Ocean and P!nk both make their chart debuts. I bet you didn't expect God Is a DJ to be the song to debut and not Blow Me (One Last Kiss) Did ya?
This week marks the week with the most former or current #1's on the chart at once. Wide Awake, Tell Me a Lie, Give Your Heart a Break and One Thing all have hit #1.
X-Factor makes it's presence known this week, with Britney, Demi, and One Direction X2 all on the chart.
One Direction has spent a total of 7 weeks at #1, by far the most of any artist.
If you haven't listened to the Honorable Mentions I would suggest it as all 3 are amazing songs.
Prior to The State of Dreaming being released on iTunes, I thought it might be a multi-week #1 since it had charted once just off of Youtube plays. But now it's already fallen off after just 3 weeks total.
I could see either God Is a DJ hitting #1, or possibly an old song. I don't see One Thing holding on to #1 again, but I don't expect it to fall off completely. Underneath Your Clothes might finally hit #1.
God Is a DJ is a better debut anyways plus it has such a amazing song. It has a special mood to it that you can release. Shakira, Katy, Regina, are keeping the chart alive. She& Him, The Killers & Tegan & Sara get honorable mentions that leave with a wondering feeling to the state of mind..
Tell Me a Lie remains at the Summit again.
One Direction has been at #1 for a total of 9 weeks between three songs. That is half of this chart's existence.
The chart once again experiences a lot of turmoil and I would expect it to remain this way until Gaga/Ke$ha/1D Release their new material and then I think they will own the chart.
This is a very international chart this week as Gaga, Demi and Scissor Sisters are the only Americans in the Top 10.
Tell Me a Lie will have a lot harder competition this week for the #1 spot from Little Talks and Ride This Feeling. Underneath Your Clothes will once again be a dark horse.
