Ke$ha spends a sixth week at No.1 in Australia with her track “Tik Tok” (DL: 1 hold, Phys: 3 to 2), and she has just announced her debut album “Animal” is due for release in the second week of January 2010, also featuring the follow-up single, “Blah Blah Blah”, a track with another current Top 10 act, 3OH!3. Lady GaGa could break her run at the top next week, as “Bad Romance” (DL: 2 hold, Phys: 9 to 4) moves up another place to a new peak of No.2, giving her a fourth Top 2 single, following last years two No.1’s “Just Dance” and “Poker Face”, and this years “Paparazzi”.
Australian Idol 2009 winner Stan Walker drops a spot to No.3 after spending two weeks at No.2 with “Black Box” (DL: 4 to 8, Phys: 1 hold), and runner-up this year Hayley Warner is releasing her single this week, so they could be in the Top 5 together next week. Climbing up two places to a new peak of No.4 is “Empire State of Mind” (DL: 5 to 3) by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, becoming Jay-Z’s highest placed single since 2003’s “03 Bonnie and Clyde” (HP-2, January 2003), which pushed Jay Sean’s “Down” (DL: 3 to 4) a single place for a third week.
Turning around and climbing back up a single place to No.6 is 3OH!3 and Katy Perry’s “Starstukk” (DL: 6 to 5), and right behind them is this week’s only Top 10 entry, Jason DeRulo’s “Whatcha Say” (DL: 9 to 6), up four places to No.7. Idol winners Guy Sebastian (Oz) and Jordin Sparks (US) are up two places to No.8 with “Art of Love” (DL: 11 to 7, Phys: 5 to 8), with The Black Eyed Peas’ “Meet Me Halfway” (DL: 7 to 11, Phys: 4 to 7) at No.9 and Orianthi’s “According to You” (DL: 8 to 10) at No.10 rounding out the rest of the Top 10 this week.
NEW PEAKS: The tipped next No.1 single here in Australia (and possible first No.1 of the next decade) is Owl City and their track “Fireflies” (DL: 23 to 9), which jumps up eleven places to No.11 this week, whilst right behind them is Pitbull with his track “Hotel Room Service” (DL: 16 to 12, Phys: 36 to 32) which is up three places to No.12. Two tracks re-peaking this week are Michael Buble with “Haven’t Met You Yet” (DL: 21 to 14), back up to No.17, and Chris Brown returns to No.22 with “I Can Transform Ya” (DL: 27 to 23, Phys: 16 to 21).
Jessica Mauboy scored the highest new entry last week, and this week her sixth single “Let Me Be Me” (DL: 36 debut, Phys: 22 to 17) rising seven places to No.26. Up eight places is “Telephone” (DL: 33 to 26) by Lady GaGa and Beyonce to No.30, one place lower than its former peaking position. The biggest climbing single of the week within the Top 100 is Robbie Williams’ latest single “You Know Me”, which leaps forty-two places to No.33. The other leaping single is Timbaland’s “Morning After Dark” (DL: 32 debut), which is up thirty-nine places to No.38, helped by the debut of his latest album this week. The last new peak within the Top 50 this week is David Guetta and Estelle’s “One Love” (DL: 43 to 39) track which is up to No.43 this week.
The John Butler Trio score the highest new entry of the week by debuting at No.15 with “One Way Road” (DL: 18 debut, Phys: 3 debut), the lead track from his forthcoming album “April Uprising” due in early 2010. The non-album B-Side “I’m Ready” also makes an entry to the charts at No.77, and these two tracks become the trio’s eighth and ninth charting single, and by debuting at No.15 “One Way Road” is the group’s equal highest charting single, as “Funky Tonight” also debuted at this position on December 18th in 2006.
Glee is screening their season finale this coming week, and this week the show lands three more new entries giving them nineteen charting songs this year, the highest of which is the No.47 debut of “True Colours” (Cyndi Lauper, HP-3, Sept 1986). A non-show song (as in not performed on the show) debuts at No.60, “Last Christmas” (Wham! No.3, Dec 1984) and they also enter at No.82 with “Imagine” (John Lennon, No.1 Dec 1971). “True Colours” and “Imagine” both appeared on episode eleven of the show, shown two weeks ago.
Sydney brother and sister act Angus and Julia Stone score their second ARIA Chart entry by debuting at No.50 with their new track “And the Boys”. This is the first track from their March 2010 due album “Down the Way”, the album recorded in Cornwall England, New York and Coolangatta Queensland. The duo’s other chart entry was the No.40 track “The Beast” in September 2007.
BELOW Top 50:
New peaking tracks below the Top 50 are The Bloody Beetroots with “Warp”, which is up eighteen places to No.51. Lily Allen and her Elton John kidnap song/clip “Who’d Have Known” is up seven places to No.54, and Creed rise thirteen places to No.61 with their new track “Rain”. LMFAO re-enter at No.72 and score a new peak with their dance track “I’m in Miami Bitch”, and Cassie Davis rises ten places to No.90 with her latest single “No More”.
Rob Thomas scores his second Top 100 entry from his current album “cradlesong”, debuting at No.52 is “Give Me the Meltdown”, which has a great meltdown video clip (with a small appearance by Rob Thomas), http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=75gqIw9d9cY . The album’s first charting single “Her Diamonds” reached No.3 in the second week of June. -----------------------------------------------------------------------
Susan Boyle holds at No.1 for a third week with her “I Dreamed a Dream” album, plus it increases it’s sales from last week by 80%, the last time an album sold this much at No.1 was P!nk’s “Funhouse” when it debuted at the top spot in November 2008. Susan also picks up another platinum certification this week, making it now 4xPlatinum in three weeks of sales.
Michael Buble holds at No.2 for another week with “Crazy Love”, and The Foo Fighters climb back up three places to No.3 with their “Greatest Hits” package. Also climbing back up the charts are The Black Eyed Peas with “The E.N.D.”, back up five places to No.4, and up three spots is Taylor Swift with her “Fearless” album to No.5.
A couple of weeks ago Lady GaGa’s “The Fame” was re-issued as a bonus edition with an eight track CD called “The Monster”, which helped the album climb back into the Top 10. Now this week “The Fame Monster” was released as its own eight-track CD, thus “The Fame” drops out of the charts, being replaced by the new packaging which debuts at No.6 this week. It is a rare occurrence, but it has happened before, when Matchbox 20 re-issued their debut album “Yourself or Someone Like You” which dropped from the chart at No.13 in March 1999 and re-entered in early April 1999 as “More of Yourself or Someone Like You”.
The other Top 10 entry for this week is “Glee: The Music – Volume 2”, which debuts at No.8, as Volume 1 drops out of the Top 10 to No.11 this week. As the gang score three more entries this week taking their tally to nineteen charting singles this year, their two albums are the only place you can buy their tracks, apart from the lead single “Don’t Stop Believin” which was issued as a CD Single.
“The Very Best of Fleetwood Mac” first entered the ARIA Top 100 chart on November 11th in 2002, and hit its peak of No.17 on June 26th in 2006. Now this week due to the groups current tour of Australia the collection re-peaks at No.17 in it’s 250th week in the Top 100. The album is now 4xPlatinum, and could break its original peak next week. Also climbing are collections by AC/DC and Enya at No.16 and No.19 respectively. Kate Ceberano and Andrea Bocelli’s Christmas albums climb to No.26 and No.27, and with Rob Thomas scoring a new charting single from his “cradlesong” album, it rises back up the charts fifteen places to No.28.
Brothers Shane and Jared Leto’s band 30 Seconds to Mars debut at No.36 with their third album “This is War”. It’s been just over three years since their last album “A Beautiful Lie” entered the charts here (20-Nov-06), which eventually peaked at No.20 in March of 2007. The lead single from this new album “Kings and Queens” re-enters at No.99, having already peaked at No.67.
Another third album also debuts this week; this one by Chris Brown, entering at No.40 is “Graffiti”. His self-titled album from 2006 peaked at No.57, whilst his November 2007 album “Exclusive” eventually peaked at No.5 in July and again in August of 2008. The lead single from this new album is “Can I Transform Ya”, which is at No.22 this week.
This week two years ago, Timbaland was in the Top 5 with his album “Shock Value”, which would eventually claim the No.1 spot by the end of 2007 and stay atop into January of 2008. This week he debuts at No.45 with “Shock Value II”, another collaboration album of the producer with acts such as Justin Timberlake, JoJo, Chad Kroeger, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, The Fray, Jet, Daughtry and OneRepublic. The first single from the album is a track feat Nelly Furtado called “Morning After Dark”, which is at No.38 this week.

I'd love it if Mariah Carey's All I Want For Christmas Is You manages to re-enter the Top 50 this year. I'm still amazed that it charts so high every year in the UK. It's almost like people forget that they already downloaded it the year before
Sorry to post it here, but hopefully maybe someone knows the answer..
Seriously... What is Black Eyed Peas' 4th single?
The U.S. says 'Imma Be' The Paper (Herald Sun) & reports here say 'Missing You' (Also Auspop has it listed as getting a physical release on Jan 15th) Nova and Fox FM (Melbourne) both played 'Rock That Body' today calling it a "hot new hit".
Well Missing You sounds really crap, but then Boom Boom Pow was pretty crappy too, so I wouldn't be surprised if it charts well, but I'm still siding with Mykl in their bet... Although I wouldn't be surprised if it manages a week or two at #9 or something...
The A.R.I.A TOP 50 will start at approximately 3:30 (EDST) today and as a special treat i'm gonna spice things up a bit so make sure you don't miss today's broadcast. Radio is up already so catch some of the hits on my personal from last week.
After watching rage and having to sit through back to back videos of this song, a Lisa Mitchell song, a Sarah Blasko song I've come to the following conclusion. To be a successful Australian female singer today you have to sing in a whiny whispering baby girl voice. Kate Miller-Heidke also provides evidence for this theory.
Good point BillyBrett and unforuatly to be a sucessful International singer (Britney, Gaga) all you have to do is to look good and have annoying manufactured Tunes. That is 1 of the saddest things about music today.
Earlier in the Year I found a Quote on a Youtube comment that interested me. I have kept it all this time because it made a good point. I Believe it went like this. "A Wise person once told me: We used to have ugly people that made great music. Now we have models that spew crap. I Guess Video really did kill the radio star."
What are anyones elses thoughs on this as it seems rather accurate.
I agree to a certain extent. I think the main issue with music today is that anybody can 'sing' thanks to autotune. So instead of the record industry finding a talented singer - whether its rock. pop, indie, r&B, - they just look to someone who is attractive and plug them in front of autotune, which is wierd since it appears music video shows are disapperaing so why have someone attractive if I'm not getting the opportunity to perve on them for 3 minutes LOL
I think also a lot of people are annoyed that companies like Disney use their actors to create 'new' talent or some random celebrity makes an album even though they cannot sing.
For all the slack that shows like Australian Idol gets, at least it technically is producing a talent who can sing live.
@BillyBrett, yes 'Alvin and the Chipmunks The Squeakquel' may propel people into buying Single Bitches (again), especially young children, who don't have family who listen to mainstream music, wanting it... but then it'd also help I Gotta Feeling and Hot n Cold which are both annyoing as well...

Hey Beanster, next time there's quite a bit (3+) of Glee Cast in the chart could you substitute all the Glee songs with the originals please??
I don't know about Britney but Lady GaGa can sing well live... Has anyone heard the start of her American Idol performance the past April, or Poker Face on her Live EP Cherrytree Sessions, and I could go on for ages...
@BillyBrett, Hot N Cold and I Gotta Feeling are better than Single Bitches, but they both are pretty crap... and yes I still hate Glee although not as much as I did at the start - as long as no one mentions Sweet Caroline, Don't Stop Believin' and the Halo/WOS mash-up have managed to grow on me a bit, so now it's more of the TV show than the Music...
I was just thinking replacing Glee with originals for once as: (a) so many people on this site hate Glee and (b) to let people have a listen to the originals and sort of "flashback" themselves... GaGa songs are not covers so it doesn't work unless you put some shitty covers by fans that can't sing instead...
One Love is average, nowhere near as good as Sexy B!tch, but hopefully David releases Memories (ft Kid Cudi)! It's the 2nd best (after Sexy B!tch) song on the album!!
Hot N Cold was catchy... but it got annoying after its massive success and refused to leave several radio countdowns for a really long time... same with I Kissed a Girl, that got annoying eventually, but at least it dropped quickly... Waking Up In Vegas was good for about a month before it became as bad as Single Bitches, Thinking of You was shit from the start and I can't even remember the name of the other one.
When will Taylor Swift, Beyoncé & Black Eyed Peas EVER leave the chart!!
In the Top 50: Love Story - 39 weeks You Belong With Me - 31 weeks If I Were a Boy - 15 weeks Single Bitches - 37 weeks Halo - 36 weeks Sweet Dreams - 24 weeks Boom Boom Pow - 37 weeks I Gotta Feeling - 27 weeks Meet Me Halfway - 15 weeks
@392414 I only mentioned replacing GaGa because I know you love her. I enjoy listening to the Glee songs and just because some people here dislike them doesn't mean they shouldn't get played on a program that is playing the Top 50 songs in Australia. I actually beginning to dislike GaGa cause of the crazy love for her that people here display for her, but I'm not going to sugggest that she not get played in the countdown. Or to ask that Pink and Beyonce not get played either. I just let them play or press mute if I hate it that much.
I would also prefer songs hang around a long time than disappear after 2 weeks. Last edited:
M@TT, well pretty much it's a brilliant album... Of the rest, good ones are Memories, Toyfriend, Gettin Over, and On The Dancefloor and Missing You (the David Guetta one not the BEP one) are average... but I don't really expect more than 5 singles from the album, so the 3 that have already been released + Gettin Over and Memories.......
And you are right in some ways Lifter, it is impossible for I Gotta Feeling, Boom Boom Pow, Single Bitches, Meet Me Halfway and Halo to die as they never had a life in the first place like I mentioned previously... ;P
Who else loves the intro in Video Phone (the instrumental not Beyoncé's voice)???
BTW Beanster, in Video Phone as it comes up in iTunes Beyoncé is spelt with a 'y' rather than an 'é' like I used to do it (except with an accent) in case you havent realised and want to fix it
Hey guys!! Don't expect Mariah to re-enter the ARIA chart for "All I Want For Christmas Is You".. For the last 2 years, it has sold enough digital copies to re-enter the Top 100, however Sony Australia haven't registered the digital track with ARIA - therefore it's not being counted.
Mariah has 3 versions of the song in the top 150 on iTunes (including a top 50 one) - it should have definitely been in the ARIA chart this week. It happens every year! It's unfortunate because the song re-enters global charts every year except ours
I thought that was the case MrAttitude, but since there is a new remix available this year I was hoping that Sony would allow it to chart this year. Such a shame, I like it when Christmas songs enter our charts. I think it's about time some artist sat down and wrote another classic christmas song like Mariah managed to do with All I Want For Christmas
Sad how Rihanna is dropping so much... I actually expected it to be #1, or at least Top 3... And then some was skipped Has Hard (Rihanna ft Jeezy), her 2nd single, charted yet?
Can I get Lady GaGa lower down chart positions like usual please Beanster, and also can I get a chart run of The Fame for the short period of time it was out of the top 50 before it re-entered recently due to Fame Monster, and also if it charted before it entered the top 50... Thanks!!!!!
It's not uncommon for Christmas songs to spent so little time in the charts. If you think about it you spend about a month before Christmas with people getting excitedfor CHristmas then have a fortnight after Christmas to crash and burn now that we are over Christmas.
I quite enjoyed that remix of Hotel Room Service, I think it actually improves an otherwise very dodgy song.
Not surprised Rihanna is dropping fast, it is a rather boring song. Rihanna is best with uptempo tracks
I think ARIA does the sensible thing and keeps any repackaged album linked with the previous stats of the original album. It's common for ARIA to pretend these things. Rihanna's GGGB album was never differentiated from her Reloaded version. Even going as far back to John Franham's Then Again... album which had extra tracks added and suddenly the title changed to Then Again....And More.
Bad Romance FINALLY made the top 2!! Let's hope it'll get #1 (it needs a miracle to do that though)... My favourite track in today's chart would've been Bad Romance, but not counting Lady GaGa it would be Morning After from Timbaland, and One Way Road from John Butler Trio would be 2nd.
Should be an interesting battle for next weeks chart. Especially the top 6 positions.
Ke$ha should be safe @ #1! Lady Gaga looks strong for the #2 spot! Jay Z/Alicia Keys might have enough omfph to go top 3 @ #3 but they might get knocked back! Owl City should bullet into the top 5. Possibly going to #4! Stan Walker sales will start to decline and he'll drop to #5 or 6 depending how strong Jason DeRulo is! Jason DeRulo might not go top 5 this week but should be higher than the rest and be safe @ #6! Jay Sean will drop to #7! 3oh!3/Katy Perry will slide down to #8! Guy/Jordin will drop to #9! Orianthi will hold on to the #10 spot!
#11 will see Hayley Warner debut! Pitbull will stall @ #12! Black Eyed Peas will slide to unlucky #13! Rihanna will drop a little to #14 or 15! John Butler will have no or minor rise from last week and be at #15! Michael Buble has potential to rise a position to a new peak of #16! Miley Cyrus will stick around the top 20 at #17! Akon/David Guetta should be safe at #18! Mumford & Sons will hold steady at #19! We might see Britney round off the top 20 with 3 at #20!
A little early I know but I am in the mood to predict! Rob.

On the ARIA Digital Album Chart, Glee Volume 2 debuted at No.1, with 30 Seconds to Mars coming in at No.3. Chris Brown's Graffiti debuted at No.10 (40 nationally) and The Fame Monster comes in at No.8

I am so pleased to hear 'rock your' body' is the next single. For me it is the best song on the album and the one song I have been playing on high rotation since I got the album middle of this year. Imma be I have also gotten into and would be a hit I reckon. Missing you is rubbish, glad it is not being released now and hopefully not at all.
Oh and looks like I was right about predicting the sucess of 'Fireflies' some 5 weeks ago when it was at #52, I think it will have a 4 week-run atop ARIA singles chart and will be the first new #1 of the decade too.
I wouldn't choose Missing You, it's too similar to Meet Me Halfway. With the first 3 singles each was very different from its predecessor, so I'd probably say Rock Your Body as a 4th and possibly Missing You as a 5th if they decided to release a 5th.
But I can guarantee their record of 11 consecutive top 10 hits will be broken with the 4th single...
1. Ke$ha - Tik Tok 2. Lady GaGa - Bad Romance 3. Owl City - Fireflies 4. Stan Walker - Black Box 5. Jay Z & Alicia Keys - Empire State Of Mind 6. Jason DeRulo - Whatcha Say 7. 3OH!3 Ft. Katy Perry - Starstrukk 8. Jay Sean Ft. Lil' Wayne - Down 9. Hayley Warner - Good Day 10. Guy Sebastian & Jordin Sparks - Art Of Love
'Rock your body' will definately go top ten. Their run will not be broken.
The reason I like it is it is so differernt to the rest of the album, the natural progression of the peas towards more a more electronic orientated sound. 'Boom boom pow' was the other song that had some electronic element hence it's appropriate place as club music with the remixes.
I actually think 'Alive' might be the 5th single.
'Imma Be' also has single potential and I heard that it is being released in the US.
I also like 'Showdown' but I don't think it will be a single, just a song for me to listen too lots..

With Orianthi and Pitbull just outside the top 10... Last edited:
I will admit I'm a little less confident in this bet than I was with Missing You not making the top 10, though I still think this will stall in the teens, but it could have just 1 strong week of sales and make top 10 (even if it's just one week) :S
As much as I love Tik Tok I have to agree she'll be a 1 hit wonder, for this first album anyway... Nooo, I hope Rock That Body doesn't go that high, but I am aware there are a lack of releases at the start of the new year so it very may well go top 10.
Ke$ha can't be a 1 hit wonder as she featured on Flo Rida's song. She will be another Kelis type artist where she has a gimmick single that is huge and a minor follow up and then nothing or very little!
Kelis hit it big with Milkshake. Had a minor follow up hit with Trick Me and then a few lower charting singles after that such as Bossy, Not In Love & I Love My Chick.
Trick Me was a huge single. Platinum selling and made #4. You can't credit Right Round as a Ke$ha song, I'm only talking about songs where she is the primary contributor. I've heard a few of her other songs (Blah Blah Blah (next single) and Backstabber) and both are nothing special.
And what the hell is with some of the names of Ke$ha's songs. How childish do they wanna be. "Party at a Rich dudes house", "Dinosuar", "Hungover", "Dancing with Tears in y Eyes", "VIP", "Dirty Picture". It's clear vshe's marketed at Teen audience..... and for "Chris A", Ke$ha wrote v"Tik Tok", so she wasnt given it.
Predictions 1. Ke$ha - TiK ToK 2. Lady GaGa - Bad Romance 3. Jay-Z & Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind 4. Owl City - Fireflies 5. Stan Walker - Black Box 6. Jason Derulo - Whatcha Say 7. Jay Sean - Down 8. 3Oh!3 - Starstrukk 9. Guy Sebastian - Art of Love 10. Orianthi - According to You
Ke$ha wont be a one hit wonder i see a big future for her music.

You can't call her the next "Katy Perry". "Katy Perry" had 1 massive worldwide hit, the 2nd single wasn't as big as it should've been. 3rd Singles was a flop, 4th single was another hit. The only "Lady GaGa" single to not be a massive worldwide hit was "Eh Eh". Unless your linking "Ke$ha" to "Katy Perry" because they're friends, and they bth hae unique songs, then yes.

Hot N Cold was a huge hit. It went top 5 all over the world, was multi-platinum selling in many countries. It had the same accreditation as I Kissed A Girl did in Australia, UK, US, Belgium, Brazil, Germany, NZ and Switzerland. Was <P6> in canada while I Kissed A Girl was <P7>.
I knew I would hate Tik Tok even before I heard it, how gimmiky crap, bitch can't even spell her own name or the song title. Clearly some marketing ploy by her record company to target the Y generation, 12-13 girls or both.
And the song itself is rubbish still hate it, can't believe it has been such a big #1. It does not say much for the current generation or popular music for that matter.
On the back of that tirade, here are my Predictions
1.Tik Tok - Kesha 2. Bad Romance - Lady GaGa 3. Fireflies - Owl City 4. Empire State Of Mind - Jay-Z And ALicia Keys 5. Black Box - Stan Walker 6. Whatcha Say - Jason Derulo 7.Starstrukk - 3OH!3 featuring Katy Perry 8. Down - Jay Sean featuring Lil Wayne 9. Art Of Love - Guy Sebastian And Jordin Sparks 10. According to You - Orianthi
Although I am not convinced Orianthi will make the top ten, I think Hotel Room Service is a big chance and will be in the 10-12 bracket along with good day.
To date Hot n Cold by Katy Perry has had more sales world wide than I Kissed A Girl and is currently ranked the #6 biggest selling single on Itunes of all time compared to I Kissed A Girl which ranks at #15. Katy Perry is far from a 1 hit wonder. Waking Up In Vegas was a decent hit in most coutries too. Not as big as the other 2 but still fairly decent.
Ke$ha will either be big like Lady Gaga & Katy Perry with a number of poppy songs or she'll be an artist like Kelis or Ciara where she's had a few hits and will die down after her initial success and hope for a comeback in a few years time but will be unsuccessful.
Happypeople, I hope Orianthi doesn't leave the top 10. I would like to see it go top 5 in the coming weeks. It had such a promising rise and now it's stalling. Hopefully it'll rebound.
The $ in Ke$ha was explained recently by her in an interview.
She said that it was taking the piss at the fact that she had no money despite being featured on the #1 around the world.
I don't see her being like a Ciara or Kelis. To me they seem very bland whereas Ke$ha is very different and unique in her style. I'm not saying she is the best artist ever but I'm saying she has more potential to stick around than Ciara or Kelis.
I reckon Ave Mary A will be just like Cuz I Can from I'm Not Dead, full fledged radio airplay, download release, but no film clip or physical release and should probably go top 30.
I was actually going to say that Hot N Cold is actually bigger than I Kissed A Girl, and yeah Waking Up In Vegas can even be considered a hit.
Ke$ha may be as big as Katy Perry, but not up at Lady GaGa's level. Ciara is still releasing material and going quite well in the charts. Sure the 2nd and 3rd album weren't as big as the first but isn't that the case with many artists?
Stan Walker is way better and Talented then Ke$ha who is a Mediocre, a Wannabe, a Talentless and a Joke of an Artist and and as much as I hate to admit it, Gaga is not that, even though I find her music bloody awful. Ke$ha will probally have only 1 Huge Single (Tik Tok) then maybe an average Hit after that then disappear after that. Her future Singles in 3/4 Years time will probally only be average charters at Best. I would also like to say how pissed I am to see Haley Warner in The Top 10 ITunes. *Argh her voice is killing me*.
1. Ke$ha - Tik Tok 2. Owl City - Fireflies 3. Jay Z & Alicia Keys- Empire State Of Mind 4. Lady Gaga - Bad Romance 5. Jason Deraulo - Watcha Say 6. Stan Walker - Black Box 7. Jay Sean - Down 8. 303!H Feat, Katy Perry - Starstruck 9. Guy Sebastian Feat Jordin Sparks - Art Of Love 10. Hayley Warner - Good Day.
I quite like Ke$ha actually. I think she will be as big or almost as big as Katy Perry, eventually. She has 1 huge single (TiK ToK), and I don't know about the rest of the album, but if the other songs from Animal aren't good, I believe she'll still come out with another huge single from her next album in about 2-3 years time. She won't be a Kelis, and she'll be bigger than Ciara, although I do thing Love Sex Magic was brilliant
Mykl, Ave Mary A is slow and boring, and Cuz I Can was one of my favourites from the album. How could you compare them to each other?? Ave Mary A may not have a video clip, but I'm expecting a physical single. After all, Bad Influence was an Aus-only single which didn't chart well and didn't have a clip but got released physically.
Here are my predictions for Sunday 20 December's ARIA Singles chart: 01 (01) TiK ToK - Ke$ha 02 (02) Bad Romance - Lady GaGa 03 (11) Fireflies - Owl City 04 (04) Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z ft Alicia Keys 05 (03) Black Box - Stan Walker 06 (07) Whatcha Say - Jason DeRulo 07 (06) Starstrukk - 3OH!3 ft Katy Perry 08 (05) Down The Chart - Jay Sean ft Lil Wayne 09 (NE) Good Day - Hayley Warner 10 (08) Art of Love - Guy Sebastian ft Jordin Sparks
* Hard choice between Bad Romance & Fireflies today. * Not sure if Art of Love will be #10 or Hotel Room Service will, as they both have physical, and Pitbull has been strong around #11-#12 on iTunes throughout the week, plus it has the Nicole Scherzinger Remix charting lower... * I see most people have Good Day lower than #9, but it was at #6 this morning on iTunes, plus to make Innocent Eyes happy, I checked Bandit.FM and it's at #5 there, PLUS it has a physical release, not only for $2 at Sanity, it's also available in JB for $2 (and Kmart for $5), but in JB it's right next to Stan Walker [of course both their last names start with 'WA'], which is pretty good promotion for her, as well as up the front...

I just realised that uncoincedently my predictions are the same as yours 392 =)
I'm not comparing Ave Mary A to Cuz I Can, just the type of promotion and the way it's released should be the same. Cuz I Can made #2 in my charts and I'm certain Ave Mary A won't do that, probably not even top 10.
I Read a review saying the title Rock Your Body is said no more then 105 times during the Track itself on the Australian Airplay site. That is 1 Tune that I do not want to hear. It Could be Top 10 soon.
