Charts on Fire: 03-15-07

Posted by Andrew Unterberger on March 15, 2007

Fergie and Luda take over the #1 with the surprisingly satisfactory “Glamorous”–the second #1 for Fergie, the fourth for Luda (her 2nd as a guest), and the second by Polow Da Don, quickly on his way to being the producer of the year. Mims slides back to #2 and Akon to #3 (crisis averted once more), with Gwen and HOT ONE “Cupid’s Chokehold” rounding out the top five. Regrettably, fellow HOT ONE “Girlfriend” slips 5-9, but Avril will rise again.

Elsewhere in the top 40, Diddy moves 23-17 on his way to having his biggest hit since “Bad Boy for Life,” Young Jeezy moves 29-24, HOT ONE “Throw Some D’s” is up 32-27 (hopefully soon to be joined by excellent new single “Boy Looka Here“), Baby Boy da Prince and the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus both slide up five to #29 and #30, respectively, and we some rebounding from John Mayer (33-26) and Carrie Underwood (37-28). We also get some new ons to the top 40 from Christina Aguilera’s “Candyman” (47-31) and Pink’s “U + Ur Hand” (is this song about what I think it’s about? Probably not, 52-36).

Debuts to the top 50 include R. Kelly or Bow Wow’s “I’m a Flirt” (really–it’s attribtued to R. Kelly or Bow Wow, never seen that one before, 72-41), Unk’s “2 Step” (now the Dem Franchize Boyz of ’07, 63-43), Carrie Underwood’s “Wasted” (girl’s been hanging out with Gretchen Wilson apparently, 67-45) and T-Pain’s “Buy U a Drank (Shorty Snappin’)” (what a niche this guy has carved, 59-46). Debuts to the bottom half of the list come from Billy Currington’s “Good Directions” (#91), Taylor Swift’s “Teardrops on My Guitar” (#93) and Tank’s “Please Don’t Go” (#95).

The Arcade Fire don’t quite make it to #2 on the album charts, held off by seven thousand extra copies sold of the Notorious B.I.G.’s new greatest hits album. Bummer.
