    Yo Brad…we all know you just copy & paste from the Billboard.com site, but how bout some kinda originality in your Thursday afternoon rehash!? I MEAN TODAY YOU JUST LAZY. You didn’t even bother to type up the features on these songs, or mention that “What’s My Name?” Featuring Drake, happens to be Drake’s 1st proper #1 on the Hot 100! Like seriously dude…I dunno what else to say. Oh yeah I do! IF you look at the entire chart, y’all will see Music Mix’s ‘gal of the week’ Ms. Swift has a very STEEP drop off of her songs as only “Mine” (No. 16) (I knew it wouldn’t go back into the top 15) and “Sparks Fly” (no. 78) are her ONLY two songs on the Hot 100 after she ‘broke all these records having all these songs off her album’ chart blah blah blah. This is what I’m talking bout & why I cant stand all these stories written up about how GREAT she is. When any other artists’ songs drop so quickly off charts, people are SO QUICK to call em failures, but because she has the #1 album in the country, no one mentions it. The media are so biased anymore its disgusting. And this isn’t HATE Swift fans, these are just cool facts that no one wants to mention for fear of upsetting the little blonde girl.

      dude, couldn’t agree more with every single word.

      Cosign on this hack. Why would you use the word “eve” to describe the timing of Rihanna’s CD (ahem, sorry, album) when it doesn’t drop until the 16th? If he wanted to spark a discussion, maybe he could have asked readers where they think the new Black Eyed Peas song will fall next week. Not a fan of it at all, but I think it will debut in the Top 10 next week.

    Maybe one of Taylor Swift’s songs is sitting at #99, which is missing from Billboard’s chart…

      Wait, just clicked on a little line above Kings of Leon’s “Click to Play” and saw that Blake Shelton debuted at #99. Phil, your comment about Taylor Swift-ly Off The Charts stands!

        Isn’t it sad that thats the REAL story here and yet the writers & editors of EW won’t even dare type it out!? Taylor “Stop Speaking Now” Backlash – The beginning…..

      • Kel

        #99?! Well, it IS just a Greatest Hits package…
