Billboard Hot 100, 31/01/09

1. Kelly Clarkson - My Life Would Suck Without You

As expected Kelly Clarkson jumps 97 spots up to #1 with her new single "My Life Would Suck Without You" --giving Kelly the biggest jump to #1 in Billboard history. Soon someone will jump 100-1 and this whole biggest Billboard jump will be over. The record was previously set by Britneys comeback ("Womanizer") which jumped 96-1, previously was both T.I. songs ("Live Your Life") and ("Whatever You Like").

8. The Fray - You Found Me

The Fray earn their third top 10 single with "You Found Me" the debut single from their sophomore self titled album. Their previous top 10s were. the airplay monster hit ("How To Save A Life"), peaking at #3 and their debut single ("Over My Head"), which peaked at #8 -both songs were released from their debut album How To Save A Life which became a moderate hit when it was first released back in 2005.

28. Beyonce - Diva
32. Lady GaGa - Poker Face

Both Beyonces "Diva" and Lady GaGas "Poker Face" both continue to pace up the chart, but who will crack the top 10 first? with the way its going my bet is on "Just Dance" as its moving at a faster pace and it has more airplay on its side.

37. U2 - Get On Your Boots

Have I mentioned how much I love this song, yet? no, you will --U2s debut single "Get On Your Boots" from their upcoming album, makes a 'hot shot' debut at #37 this week. This is their 16th top 40 on the Hot 100, kinda small don't you think? for a band thats been making records since the 1980s. Exceptionally they do have 2 #1s with ("With or Without You") and ("Haven't Found What I'm Looking For") released back in 1987 from their album The Joshua Tree -brilliant album by the way. I thinking "Get On Your Boots" will rise considerably. The song has yet to make way in the UK.

44. Soulja Boy Tell 'Em featuring Sammie - Kiss Me Thru The Phone

("Crank That") was a good song to dance to but I've never really been a fan of Soulja Boy, total originality void. "Kiss Me Thru The Phone" is the third single from his sophomore album iSouljaboytellem and his first top 50 since ("Yahhh!") peaked at #48 last year. Unfortunately after the monster success of ("Crank That") he hasn't really been able to follow it up quite well.

50. Katy Perry - Thinkin' Of You

Katy Perrys "Thinkin' Of You" the third commercial release from her debut album One of the Boys just scrapes the top 50 this week. "Thinkin' Of You" is a more slower number than her previous singles, but will it match up to their success.
