    The only song worthy to be in the top 10 is “Dynamite”. I hate the rest.

    • emil

      Well…. Thanks for sharing…

    • Slim

      you must be retarded…Eminem FTW

  • Tim

    I hope Rihanna does not make it to number one. That song is not good. It sounds so much like Kelly Rowland’s Commander.

  • keith

    Happy for Bruno. It’s a great song.

  • Nathan

    Bruno Mars’ song is probably the best pop/r&b song on the radio right now, so he deserves it. As for the other songs: Teenage Dream (A-), Love the Way You Lie (C-), DJ Got Us… (B+), Dynamite (B), “G6″ (Never heard it, sounds dumb), Just a Dream (C+), Only Girl (D-), I Like It (D+), & Club… (C+). I personally think Katy’s song is miles better than her previous single too….

    Bruno mars music is fresh and mellow. He desreves to be number 1, this from a baby boomer.

    Happy that Bruno scored a second week at #1. As long as his iTunes sales hold up, he should remain there for a third next week. Psyched to see Dev making it with Far*East Movement – I really liked her solo song “Fireball” (which apparently is no longer available on iTunes, unfortunately). Wouldn’t be surprised to see it make a 6-2 leap next week. I wasn’t expecting Rihanna’s “Only Girl in the World” to slide 3-8 (I thought she’d be in the runner-up spot this week). She’ll probably creep back into the top 5 due to radio airplay, but not expecting her to go all the way to the top.

    I don`t why Rhianna`s songs just automatically goes to the top 10 while other (BETTER) artist can`t even make the top 40.

    With his successful feature debut in B.o.B’s ‘Beautiful Girls’ and McCoy’s ‘Billionaire’, I honestly believe ‘Just the Way You Are’ would eventually make its way to he peak of the Hot 100. It’s quite a brilliantly written piece with an ethereal melody that’s definitely worthy of the #1 spot. However, I do believe it’s stay on the top will be a short one. Rihanna’s ‘Only Girl’ I must admit is not so wonderful and definitely should not take the thrown however it IS a big return to her normal style of music after her crappy Rated-R nonsense. Only Girl is the type of music that’s made her so successful so i have no doubt that she’ll rebound to a new peak next week. Perry’s Teenage Dream is an outstanding euphoric track that surprised me when it topped the charts, nonetheless, it’s definitely worthy, just was Eminem’s outstanding lyrical genius in Love the Way You Are. Im definitely surprised Like A G6 has entered the top 10 – however it’s indication that the American public is beginning to appreciate music from a more multicultural artists and that’s just swell! Also surprising is Flo Rida. He topped worldwide charts with debut singles off his last two albums so i was surprising that a track like Club which seemed destined for #1 fell so short of achieving that status.

    I cant anticipate next week’s chart appearance but there is no doubt that Glee will continue its domination of the charts especially with its recent Britney
    Spears episode.

    I think Rihanna’s peaked with her new single, but it should stay on the top 10 for a while. As for Bruno Mars, good for him! 2 weeks at #1 is great for a new artist, but Far*East Movement is catching up and might grab the top spot next week. We’ll see…
