US Ringtone Charts: 12/06/2010

US Singles Chart:

1. Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg – California Gurls (last week – 2)

Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg put together a track that responds to Jay-Z’s Empire State Of Mind, adding an electropop tinge to rap and fusing the US’ two most fashionable and of the minute genres. A guaranteed hit, then,  and so its proven. Download Katy Perry ringtones here.

2. Usher featuring Will.I.Am – OMG (last week – 1)

Autotuned and arena ready, Usher’s latest if perfectly suited for the world’s biggest sporting tournament. Sad, then, that the World Cup is making a minimal impact stateside. Still, the NBAs reaching the sharp end these days, and Usher’s tune won’t go down badly there, either,  Download a taste of Usher for your phone, here.

3. B.o.B Featuring Eminem and Haley Williams – Airplanes (last week – 3)

Paramore’s religious front woman combines with the world’s most infamous rapper and an up and coming urban newcomer to produce one of the charts most unlikely fusions so far this year, one that’s going down a treat by all accounts. Airplanes sounds like B.o.B with a few random extras, but the big name guests are proof positive that he’s a respected member of the chart community these days.

4. Ke$ha – Your Love Is My Drug (last week – 4)

The second big single from Ke$ha’s breakthrough debut album ‘Animal’, which – while hardly a shocking chart development – has added a feisty, party-girl vibe to the top end of the chart. She’s certainly not the most subtle of singers, nor does she have the most breathtaking of voices, but her songs seem to resonate. Party on.

5. Travie McCoy featuring Bruno Mars – Billionaire (last week – 11)

In imagining that he might become a billionaire, and how that would change his life, Travie McCoy’s debut single has taken him one step closer to getting there. This is a breakthrough that looks like going far, and completes one of the most urban-looking singles charts of even this hip-hop dominated year. One to watch, we think, especially given the big rise.

US Albums Chart:

1. Jack Johnson – To The Sea (new entry)

Having already notched up a UK number one, Jack Johnson doubles up with a US number one in his first week. The man’s had an enviable life, starting as pro surfer and going on to become one of the most popular acoustic musicians of the last decade. To The Sea is typical Johnson, soulful and cleverly political. Great stuff.

2. Justin Bieber – My World 2.0 (last week – 3)

Up one once again for Bieber volume 2, an album that must me on more than a few young teenagers shelves now that it’s notched eleven weeks near the top of the notoriously flaky US album charts. Bieber’s got more enemies than friends by all accounts, but that won’t stop him. Grab Justin Bieber’s latest ringtones, here.

3.  Glee The Music Volume 3: Showstoppers (last week – 1)

The most successful effort of the Glee series so far drops from the number one spot, but is still doing storming business for an album full of not overly unique cover songs. Still, it’s the series that sells this one, and we can’t say we’re hugely surprised with the way it’s gone.

4. Lady Antebellum – Need You Now (last week – 4)

There’s an argument at this point for Lady Antebellum being the biggest act of 2010. They’ve certainly given Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber a run for their money when it comes to chart position. Download Lady Antebellum ringtones here.

5. Usher – Raymond vs. Raymond (last week – 5)

Having told the world he delayed the release of Raymond vs. Raymond ‘because it’s s strong we want to get a proper backing behind it’, Usher’s lived up to his own hype with this one. It covers a vast array of Usher’s much-publicized private life, just in case you wanted to know about all the nasty stuff he gets up to… Get Usher ringtones here.

Glee The Music Volume 3: Showstoppers (last week – 1)

Dramatic TV series Glee is coming into the final straight of the highly popular first series right now, and this album offers the perfect taster. A Lively collection of covers from the actors offers a great taste of what the show is all about, and is selling even better than the first two albums. Expect to recognize plenty of the tracks included here.
