Charts on Fire: 06-21-07

Posted by Andrew Unterberger on June 21, 2007

“Umbrella” takes week #4 at the top spot–somehow managing to be the longest-running #1 of the year so far (besides “Irreplaceable,” which started its run in ’06). Rest of the top ten is pretty boring (Shop Boyz, Fergie, T-Pain, Plain White T’s, Maroon 5, Avril Lavigne, Justin Timberlake, Amy Winehouse and Lil’ Mama, respectively), with the Lil’ one being the only new entry to the top strata (12-10). I suppose, yes, “Umbrella” has officially made its claim for Summer Jam status, but has a mediocre UK indie band done a semi-ironic cover of it yet, though? Because it can’t be a summer jam until a mediocre UK indie band sucks the life out of it at least once.

Fabolous is the big jumper in the top 40 this week, up 61 spots this week with his new Ne-Yo guesting single “Make Me Better” (boring even by Fabbo standards, yikes, #13), joining Sean Kingston’s very near hot one “Beautiful Girls” (#37) and Timbaland’s gramatically superior “The Way I Are” (probably one of the better Shock Value tracks, #40) as the three new ons to the top 40 this week. New to the bottom strata of the top 50 are Boys Like Girls’ “The Great Escape” (sorta non-descript emo pop/rock, but hey, I guess it’s summer or something, #44) and Eve’s hott-at-first-but-now-just-kinda-whatever “Tambourine” (#50).

My Chemical Romance have the top debut to the top 100 this week with the surprisingly swaggering “Teenagers” (I guess every decent semi-androgynous rock band has to ape T. Rex at least once, #87). Joining them in the bottom half of the list for the first time are Jack Johnson, whose “Imagine” cover (presumably for that John Lennon tribute album that debtued in the top 20 this week) is at #93, and Plies f/ T-Pain’s “Shawty,” which seems like a pretty lame excuse to get T-Pain on yet another hit single, at #94. Yawn.

Big Dog Daddy Toby Keith has the #1 album this week, yee-haw. And KoRn has the new Worst Song Ever in the Modern Rock top 20 this week. Nice one, country.
