You'll Chew On Whatever Chris Brown And Ne-Yo Shove Down Your Throat
You for sure would have expected Chris' "Forever" to hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, perfectly timed mere days after the announcement of the single's corporate product placement shenanigans.
Alas, there it sits, stuck at #3 again like, uh, gum.
Nonetheless, Chris leads his non-girlfriend Rihanna and Ne-Yo in what has become somewhat of a pop trifecta sweeping up the chart this summer.
"Disturbia" closely follows Rihanna's spring hit "Take A Bow," landing in the Top 10 this week at #4. Meanwhile, Ne-Yo's "Closer" climbs to a new high of #14.
Sigh... one can only dare to dream about what his inevitable "kiss a little longer" Big Red jam will sound like. And while "Closer" recently topped the U.K. singles chart, another British #1 is just behind it here at #16 in the form of Estelle's "American Boy."
Another single that doesn't make me want to blow my head off is Jordin Sparks' "One Step At A Time," which has slowly creeped up to #34 like a peg-legged whore hobbling toward a fiver in an old pimp's gnarled grasp.
Which reminds me, it's my grandma's birthday tomorrow.
